It’s no BIG secret that today’s job market is tough.  As an employer you know how it is when a position opens within your company, there is a flood of resumes that come in and the real work begins.  Countless hours going through them looking for something that catches your eye and screams out "ME, I'm the perfect candidate for this position!"  But what about those hilarious resumes that make you scratch your head and think "am I seriously reading this right now?"

Although saying something like “Hi. I’m looking for a job.  Only for the summer though. Cause I gotta go back to school.Tnx.”? may cause that person to stand out among other candidates, it's not exactly the kind of person you want to entrust to the available position.
