Meet the Foot-in-Mouth Gang


Sometimes candidates say dumb things.  Here are some dumb things people have said to some of my colleagues lately:

  • One candidate said knew he was a little “green behind the ears.”
  • Another candidate submitted a resume that mentioned his “gun hoo” personality twice.
  • A candidate submitted a resume that was six pages long and made the business case for a salesperson to “network” through golf.  He wanted to be sure he’d have country club privileges, because he felt there was a direct correlation between golf and sales.
  • An applicant, when filling out the part of the application where you state your job duties, wrote that his previous job required him to “do the cashiers at the end of the shift.”

Tales of the Cluefree appear pretty much every Friday. Past stories are here.
