Reporting the News

After her tirade last week on The View, Rosie O'Donnell has said she probably will never talk to Elisabeth Hasselbeck again. Poor, poor Elisabeth. I bet she has lost a lot of sleep over that one.

In a recent CareerBuilder.com survey, hiring managers and human resource professionals across the nation shared the most unusual resume blunders they've come across in their careers. Top slip-ups from the survey included:

Applicant attached a letter from her mother.

Applicant specified that his availability was limited because Friday, Saturday and Sunday was "drinking time."

Applicant explained an arrest by stating, "We stole a pig, but it was a really small pig."

Applicant drew a picture of a car on the outside of the envelope and said it was the hiring manager's gift.

Applicant explained a gap in employment by saying it was because he was getting over the death of his cat for three months.

Does attaching the entire book of Colossians with IRS papers and turning them in to United Way count?

Let's hope not.

Poor Rosie.

I think I've interviewed a few of those people. I did interview a lady who told me moving to Decatur would be easy because she just had a single-wide trailer and could go anywhere she needed to. That's making life simple.
