As a recruiter or hiring manager, it can be painstakingly hard to look at some of the junk that ends up on your desk.  When it comes down to resumes, you’ve seen it all from the good, the bad and the ugly. Sometimes you’re genuinely left rubbing your eyes in disbelief and asking yourself “What did I just read?”.

That being said, here are 10 of the most ridiculous blunders ever to appear on a candidates resume……EVER!

#1 Objective: “I want to play a major part in watching a company advance.”

#2 Education: “I have repeated courses repeatedly.”

#3 Skills: “I am bi-lingual in three languages.”

#4 Salary requirements: “The higher the better.”

#5 Job duties: “Filing, billing, printing and coping”

#6 Skills: “I’m a perfectionist and rarely if if ever forget details.”

#7 Experience: “I’m a hard worker, etc…”

#8 Last Job: Owned own business. Reason left: Fired

#9 Traits: “I am honourable – I am the son of a librarian and a capricorn.”

#10 Qualifications: “I have extensive experience with foreign accents.”
