Finding a new job can be nerve-wracking. There are so many factors that you have to nail in order to impress the hiring managers enough to get an offer. You have to find the perfect interview outfit, your answers have to be both concise and thorough, and, let's not forget the thing that actually gets you the interview in the first place: Your resume.
Well, one woman has gone viral this week for a particularly hilarious mistake ...
Job applications can be stressful.
Especially if it's for a position you really want!
And there's one area you always want to get perfect.
Your resume, of course!
Perfecting your resume is no easy feat.
But there's another thing to worry about, too ...
What about if you make a really stupid mistake?
It's the stuff of nightmares ...
Well, one woman attached the worst possible image to her resume this week before accidentally sending it off.
And it turns out, she's not the only one to make a huge error on their resume.
Take a look at some of the most embarrassing blunders...
"I had a resume from a potential interview candidate that listed his reason for leaving his last job as: 'I found a body.' No further explanation."
via: Getty Images"You bet your sweet patootie I called him in for an interview. The condensed story is that he found a body while walking the grounds at his job checking to make sure all gated areas were secure and clear of debris. When he found the body, he called the police. He was fired because he broke internal reporting protocol. He was supposed to notify his immediate supervisor and not outside authorities. It was the supervisor's responsibility to call the police."-BexieB
"I had someone hand me a resume with the HTML code of a porn URL mixed in mid-way through."
via: Getty Images"I guess he was watching porn while updating his resume and somehow dragged in a link. Guess he didn't proofread it."-ProbablyNotCorrect
"I received a resume from an applicant that included a letter of recommendation from his cat."
via: Getty Images"The letter was hilarious and signed with a clipart paw print. I thought it was great and wanted to bring him in, but the manager for the position wasn't as crazy about it. I guess the point is, humor in an application can work for you, but it really depends on the person."-darthnut
"A guy put his bench, squat and deadlift numbers in his personal skills section for a bar job."
via: Getty Images"It spawned a long tradition of asking bartenders what they could bench when they applied for a job."-MoveToStrike
"I was working for a small digital agency and we were looking for designers and illustrators, general multi-skilled creative types."
via: Getty Images"The boss wanders in with a sly grin and a big folder. It was from a guy who wanted a job. I came over and he started flicking through it: Page after page of sexy cartoons, lots of them furry-type stuff. Boob, butts, lips, figures intertwined, lots of detailed. So I was like, 'Well it's quite good for what it is...but what else is there? Is there another section?' Nope. Nothing else. Just a folder completely full of semi-pornographic cartoon people and sexy anthropomorphized animals."-torn-ainbow
"I had a candidate who worked in counseling in the past, mostly with kids who had been through trauma."
via: Getty Images"They had a line on their resume that said: 'Expert in child kidnapping'. I had to at least give them an interview because I understood the intent but the wording was just hilariously unfortunate. For those seeking clarity, he was an expert in kidnapping cases. No, he didn't get the job. Nice guy, but not a good fit for the role."-Leiawen
"I work at an Escape Room. We once received a resume that consisted of a webpage address protected by a password and three well-crafted riddles that we had to solve to get the password."
via: Getty Images"We spent an hour doing it with two colleagues, and it included decrypting a code from a specific frame of Zodiac by David Fincher. It was simply amazing. Sadly, we weren't hiring at the time, and she had found another job when we started hiring again."-Maximelene
"One time I was trying to fill a 3rd shift warehouse role for minimum wage and it was a super urgent need for our client and in a remote area. The only guy with experience I could get to bite was...very interesting."
via: Getty Images
"All his resume said was 'I've done warehouse stuff for a long time...I have 'F- YOU' tattooed on my forehead. Please let me get in front of you though. I'm the definition of don't judge a book by the cover.'
Screened the guy, Skyped with him, and had him come in to meet with me. He was great. I let the client know what to expect before sending him on the interview.
They hired him on the spot."-datacollect_ct
"In one person's cover letter, I couldn't help but notice a sentence that had "(company name)" in one of the paragraphs, the person missed spot they were meant to fill in, in this obvious template of a cover letter."
via: Getty Images"I found it funny that they listed 'attention to detail' as one of their greatest strengths."-ToughTriflenb
"We receive a lot of applications through typical job boards such as Indeed or CareerBuilder, and when they apply we get sent an email that has their CV attached to it with the job they applied for."
via: Getty Images
"We received numerous applications from one person, and when we opened the CV attachment expecting to see their experience, it was actually a one page description of how this particular man cheated on his girlfriend multiple times and this was how she was getting back at him, by screwing him out of the positions he was trying to apply for by replacing his CV with this document.
Easily one of the funniest things I've ever seen in my 2 years at this company, we laughed about it for hours."-SuperSmashOSU
"I had one application dropped off by the applicant’s mother."
via: Getty Images"She told me, 'If you hire him, you probably shouldn’t trust him with money.' I threw the application away after she turned around. I was hiring for a sales clerk position at my family bakery."-Barzilla1911
"Ya know in Legally Blonde where Reese Witherspoon gives out her resume and its on pink, scented paper?"
via: Getty Images"I got one like that about three years ago. The resume started off, literally her first paragraph, talking about how 'Legally Blonde' was her favorite movie. It was full of doodles in the margins and specifically requested I not contact her previous employers because she felt she was fired unfairly, and instead listed several sorority sisters as references. She compared herself to Elle Woods several times, explicitly saying any hiring manager who wouldn’t hire her off of this resume was doing so because they couldn’t handle her individuality. I’m honestly not entirely sure if this was a legit resume or some kind of joke. It had almost nothing to do with the job listing. The job went unfilled. We chose literally no one over this."-linguotgr
"My company does business with a certain family-friendly theme park. This means our employees can’t have visible tattoos, crazy hair colors, they need to be able to pass a drug screening, background check, etc."
via: Getty Images"I received a resume for a sales position from a guy we will call Andrew. The cover letter said: 'Hey what’s good? I have worked at almost every fast food place around but now it’s time to try something new. I don’t know how to do retail but I’ll learn. I don’t have official sales experience of the legal kind of you know what I mean, but that was a few weeks ago and I’m not like that no more.' On his resume, he listed the places he worked at and had descriptions such as, 'take people's orders and clean up their messes' and 'take peoples orders money and give them their s***.' I thought the resume was submitted as a joke until I looked Andrew up on Facebook and found his profile."-watching-the-office
My old boss kept a file of CVs he thought were terrible, and pulled them out here and there for a laugh."
via: Getty Images"This is for an ESL school, so there were a few from non-native English speakers with really obvious spelling mistakes that should have been caught by any spell-check program. And then there was the guy who attached like 10 passport photos of himself to the file. Like... why? One maybe, but 10? Why so many? You could just feel the ego dripping out of every sentence in the whole thing, too."-scarreddragon28
"I interviewed a guy that brought a resume that covered 30+ years of employment."
via: Getty Images
"The crazy thing was he never worked at a place longer than four months, he had a ten-page resume single-spaced with every job he's had for 30 years and not a single one was longer than four months, and he only had maybe one or two years in that span where he wasn't employed.
The crazier thing was that we hired him, he was the only one who applied."-_moonbear
Well, one woman made the whole internet cringe after making one of the most embarrassing mistakes while submitting her resume.
After putting the wrong image on the document before accidentally sending it off, she took to TikTok to share her horror.
And it's safe to say, after seeing the snap in question, reactions came in strong...
