21 Resume Typos That Will Ruin Your Chances Of Getting Hired

21 Resume Typos That Will Ruin Your Chances Of Getting Hired

I always had a sneaking suspicion that potential employers don't even read resumes that are submitted to HR. Especially when you apply online and type in all of your previous work experience in whatever proprietary system they have set up, only for them to ask you to upload your resume at the end anyway.

It also doesn't help that every resume we submit is rarely the same.... You need to tailor it for the position that you're applying for. But all of those changes come with some pitfalls, like spelling errors.

You're bound to spell a word or two incorrectly while you constantly update your CV, and if there's one thing that we've learned from the internet is that people are really, really big sticklers for grammar. Just get into any argument in any comment thread ever and misspell a word. It'll take you about 5 minutes before you hate humanity.

So, in the off chance that someone at your hopeful place of employment actually reads your resume, make sure there aren't any typos on it. Avoid the following ones like the plague.

You may inadvertently make yourself look totally incompetent.

Double check every word.

Sometimes, all it takes is one letter.

While others are just inappropriate.

OK, I'd just laugh at this if I was reviewing your resume.

Probably not suitable for an office environment.

Well if that's not a typo I'd want an otter-advocate in my employ.

Every hour's happy hour amirite?

Sadly, this typo is all too common.

Oh God.

What a strange hobby.

Even if this wasn't a typo, working for a psychopath is probably a bad idea.

Messy.

Ironic.

Better keep this detail to yourself.

Ah, a Total Recall fan?

You may be lying, sir.

We don't like the company you keep, madam.

Uh...

Honestly if your employer doesn't appreciate a good cat pun, do you even want to work for them?

It doesn't matter how qualified you are, if you misspell something on your resume, you're just shooting yourself in the foot. That is, if someone even bothers reading it. You could always avoid that by sending in an awesome video resume.

RecircHumorWoman Snaps Photos Of Sleeping BF On Vacation, Asks Internet To Photoshop 'What He Missed'

There are plenty of ways to troll a sleeping friend while on a road trip. My personal favorite is parking the car in front of a light pole or a wall, flashing your lights, and having everyone in the car at the same time scream their heads off as if you're all about to die.

That's one way to wake them up.

But Eria found a different approach to trolling her boyfriend, Scott, that had a much longer effect: she enlisted the help of the I'm Telling God Facebook group in roasting him mercilessly for his soporific ways. As a result, the 'Sleepy Scott' meme was born.

RecircHumorForget France, Memes Are The Real World Cup 2018 Winner

If you were like pretty much everyone in the world, you were probably let down by the fact that Croatia didn't have their storybook ending in taking home first place in the 2018 World Cup. Sure, France had an amazing team and all that, and the contest's youngest MVP player, Mbappé, even donated all of his winnings from the tournament to charity—so I guess it's hard to be too upset with the competition's end result.

And even though everyone played their hearts out (except Egypt, I mean, they went again Saudi Arabia and the results were just embarrassing), there was a clear winner this World Cup and it actually wasn't even any of the teams. S

ure there's a first, second, and third place result, but all of those accomplishments pale in comparison to the wonderful memes that sprung up as a result of this glorious tournament.

More than a few were thanks to Brazil's Neymar.

RecircHumor22 Images That'll Give You Bad Luck Just By Looking At Them

I grew up in a marginally superstitious family who brought some beliefs and hocus-pocus superstitions from the old country. I couldn't make too much noise late at night for fear of attracting a "jinn." I couldn't point at cemeteries or stare into a mirror for too long or my face would become deformed, and heaven help me if I was ever mean to or disobeyed my parents or grandparents, because then I'd be looking at a cursed life that would ruin me until the day that I died.

But the idea of "back luck" or stepping on cracks, walking under ladders, or stealing a black cat's macchiato isn't something that my family really bought into. Sure, we believed in supernatural stuff and the idea that karma gets back around to mess with you or your kids, but "bad luck"? 

No honey, it isn't luck that's ruining your life, it's an unseen species of metaphysical monsters that exist in a different plane we know little about—but they are mentioned in the Quran, so be careful!

There are phenomena so unfortunate that simply looking at images of them will cause the same bad luck to befall you. So on this Friday the 13th, gaze upon these pictures with extreme caution.
