On a “serious” note, what’s some weird things you’ve seen in ANY CV?
Hah! In my old job, I did a lot of interviewing and hiring. I saw people write extensively about all sorts of useless skills, ranging from hockey and poker (he even listed the tournaments he did well in) to being a good sibling.
I didn’t end up hiring any of them, but it worries me that out there somewhere, someone did.
Being a good sibling?!?! I can’t believe that!
Interviews were worse. I got everything from people bragging about how many office supplies they could steal to racist mall Santas (yes, really).
We’ll I think it may be true since our company recruited a guy for a week trial but didn’t get the job, because he wastes his time with silly things rather than hard work.
1- Cracking Mobile Video Games to finish the game as fast as possible.
2- Whatsapping Friends before sleeping every night
3- Taking Photos of anything I like and posting it on facebook
i have seen a funny CV too,
an LAU graduate name Mouhamed……
email address tony…….@hotmail.com
welcome to the world of Lebanese CVs
Then you have the CVs which state as professional email address: a7lasarsoura….@hotmail.com, cute_angel_ammoura….@hotmail.com ….
I mean… Email Addresses are for FREE!!! If you can’t bring yourself to create a decent one, why should we hire you?
someone has put:
height: 186 cm
( he was applying as a developer)
Thax Sareen, I laughed so hard Wallah
I worked in HR for about two years; in the recruitment & selection functions.
Blv me we have encountered many of these “re`sume`s”! I’ve seen wird things indeed!
2 quick ex.s if I may:
1- skipped 3rd grade (or 4th, not exactly sure but definitely an elementary level class) because I was marked as ADVANCED (caps in original, yes)
2- MY BMI index is: —- (4 an admin post!) – I guess he wanted to demonstrate he is not an addict or something, who knows!
I loved the languages on this CV, not sure if it is a common “label” in Lebanon but 1st time to hear it! Also, the hashtag was a good laugh too. Needed a few minutes until I deciphered “wel3aneh”
Thx again, u made my Monday
Religious quotes? Hire him immediately!
@ Michael: only if he was wearing a tie, only that!
I had one that wanted to reach puberty with my company. He had apparently attempted to translate on google “اريد ان ابلغ مع الشركة” loooool
Well im no HR employee or even a business owner, but ive seen cv’s with language listings like:
English: I speak london very best
Arabic: I speak the lebanese derij accent
French: ca va?
computer skills: facebook & hotmail.
hard skills: they are hard, im not that good.
soft skills: it depends on the softness
once i was helping a friend fix his cv to apply as a waiter.
he listed his skills: abou raba bil telmee3. bekul rus bisir3a, w btarbish il zboun.
another said, i want to work at Mc or burger king as waiter. his description of his dream job as a waiter is making the burgers in the kitchen.
“they are hard, im not that good” = full points for honesty
I am impressed with your driving/texting ability. Only 3 crashes in a month is pretty darn good
Hahahahaaaa!!! This is sooooo funny. Applies to many, not only in Lebanon. I just love your comics and as I’m catching up on what I have missed in the past couple of months I decided to finally write this to let you know that you are awesome, super talented and smart. Love you so much! All the best
And they ask why we can’t get a job in lebanon
Interviewed a young lady for a psychologist position and she had her brother’s e-mail on her CV!
