Resume Suggestions!

Yesterday the waeg dad was sharing war stories from his job for a corporation that runs several English programs and institutes. One aspect of his job is to go through piles of resumes and hire English teachers. We had great fun looking over this one.

He did go through and change his profile picture on his actual job search, in itself a huge improvement, but the fact that a guy with post graduate 'education' couldn't go through and change the obvious spelling errors in a job search ad boggles my mind, especially when you have 11 years of teaching experience. But in the end he did get hired somewhere now, didn't he.  Let's hope it's China.

So protip: double check your grammar, use a passport grade photo, don't send the same email to multiple jobs / recruiters, ensure all correspondence with a potential employer is formal.  Unless of course, you'd prefer to take the piss and laugh when you still get hired.

I wanna call this guy Jerry.
