Looking for a job is a job in itself and you have to be an expert at so many things. Writing your cover letter, keeping your LinkedIn updated, scrubbing your social media for damning tweets, and have a sharp resume that catches a recruiter's eye. A man named Steven Case may have the most eye-catching resume ever made.
Twitter user @realytcracker (okay, bud) shared a picture of a resume he said he mocked up for his brother, Steven. Steven apparently hates it:
For some reason, he thinks this would make him unhireable?
Let's take a closer look.
Steven is a Magician of Middle Managementry, and his bio is pretty straightforward:
"I am attempting to progress my character in-game and avoid spending more of my thirties grinding lower-level zones on Earth Server. My goal is to secure a challenging leadership role in a strong guild that has an active and intelligent player base."
He also included a symbol for what I assume is a 20-sided die. Cool.
Look at all the Skillpoint Proficiencies Steven has! Leadership, spell casting, Advanced Computing.
His Main Questline Experiences are pretty standard for his field.
And finally, he has completed his costly, formalized edification.
Honestly, it's perfect, especially if the person receiving it in HR is a Wizard.
Everyone agrees that this is the resume that will get Steven ahead, if he is brave enough to accept his destiny:
If your not sold by the second to last word of the bio... blockchain.. collect— Hairetsu (@rapper) March 20, 2018
I founded my recruiting agency 10yrs ago and been in the industry for -8yrs. This resume is brilliant— Marcelo Fleitas (@AscPro_CEO) March 21, 2018
With all those skillpoint proficiencies, who wouldn't hire him.— evilAsh (@ojichan72) March 20, 2018
If a lawyer sent this to us he'd be hired.— Never ran from a fight before, too old to run now (@wmoans) March 20, 2018
There was just a little constructive criticism:
You gotta get some attributes up in that resume. Gotta know those scores so we know what his saves are.— 🥄Sp00ns🥄 blockchain 0-day buzzword (@sp00ns_) March 20, 2018
Steven Case may not get hired off this email, but it seems like his brother might.
When I moved across the country a couple of months ago, I was trying to find a short-term place to stay while I looked around for an apartment to make my home. I've gone through my share of shady sublets, and was so worried I wouldn't land a spot that I started looking for one to book months in advance. On my first day of browsing, I came across a gorgeous and affordable one-bedroom in a really convenient location, but was super skeptical of the post because of how traumatized I am from my previous experiences.
I've dealt with creeps who ask for a cash deposit then claim they're in the hospital on the exact same day they're supposed to meet me for the keys. I've had people cancel my reservation once I've already landed in their city... Needless to say, I'm a seasoned subletter. When I found this lovely one-bedroom on Craigslist, I was sure the listing was too good to be true. So I took a proactively defensive stance when I reached out via email. I asked for boring specifications on the apartment and went over payment details with exhaustive thoroughness. I even asked if a friend could stop by to make sure there were no secret squatter tenants, or anything sketchy like that. Then, I got an email back.
TWIST: I recognized the address from the gushing fan mail I had sent it years ago. The apartment belonged to my favorite living writer and here I was, casually emailing with her directly. Flash forward a few months and we're friendly and occasionally email each other or meet for coffee to catch up. And that's how my nightmare sublet search turned into a friendship with one of the best and most famous writers of our time.
I live for real-life plot twists like this. They keep us on our toes while we cruise through this journey of life. Which is why when u/whytho37 asked Reddit to share their most insane plot twists, the results were incredible.
Scroll down for twists so good, you wouldn't believe they actually happened if you saw them in a film.
