how not to write a resume

i have circulated this before, but it's well worth the read. this is my favorite resume that i have ever received. to protect the applicant's anonymity i have removed their name. i'm not positive, but i imagine it was set in comic sans. i have opted not to correct the spelling, grammar or reckless non-capitalization.


To work as an Artist in the Graphic Arts Industry or in advertising but mostly I want to work diligently in any job that I can find an be of service to the company. but I would be comfortable in getting a job right now that I am capable of and I have a wide range of abilities.

When I was there sales went up at least 10 to 25%, thus they promoted me to Plumbing. the corporation decided to move to a larger location. in the new location, the store had little customer service and went out of business.I attribute this to the manager of the store getting rid of at least 25 service employees in order to afford to go to that new location, he was later fired . The manager did not know what people really wanted.
