If you are looking for a job

I have some advice. I have been reviewing resumes for the past few days and I can tell you a few things. First, use the spell check on your computer. If you can't even give me a good resume, why should I believe you would do a good job? Second, do not put down a list of your interests or hobbies unless they are really interesting. I don't give a flying fuck if you play with your kids, that you have a black lab puppy, or if you are a Mormon. Third, don't send your resume to a potential employer if you are grossly under qualified. Applying for every job out there is a waste of my time and yours. Fourth, if you want to follow up on your resume submission, do not send the potential employer an email every day asking if anyone has looked at your resume. That is not being persistent, that is stalking.

You have a job opening? I may need a new gig after my company gets my expense report from the Hawaii trip. Oh, my hobbies are getting drunk, watching movies while drunk and other assorted activities while in a state of inebriation. But I don't have a dog and I am not a Mormon.
