Resume tips 101

The following resume was recently received by our creative director for a designer position that he is trying to fill.

I have changed any identifying information, but the rest is real. We we torn between actually calling the guy and giving him advice on how to write a resume or just rolling on the floor in fits of laughter. We chose the latter.

Please, please, please tell me you are joking. I've seen some bad resumes before but this one takes the cake.

I promise this was real... it was sent through an online submission. The bad thing is that he has it also posted on an online job board as well. Poor guy - I don't think I've ever seen anyone list individual grades, but then to list that you made D's!?! In graphic design and that is the position to which you've applied!?

I know my resume needs some work, but I know it doesn't even compare to this one.

He is very competent online apparantly, how important is it to have fundamentals of design for a desinger position anyway!!
