So maybe I'm the only one, but I've noticed this site is a little stagnant as of late and as such I'm recommending a good old "craziest thing to happen to me recruiting wise" in 2013. So let's all bring our best, funniest, craziest thing that has happened to us as recruiters. I know we all have great stories, let's share em....it's laughing time.
My doozy for the day.
I get this guy's resume and "detaile oriented" is misspelled. Always enjoying a good laugh, I call him. He tells me that those god damn people in the other department are why he was fired from his last job, so he went to school so he could be like one of them. I explained that since he has been out of work for over a year and was let go from last job...unlikely I can help him. He then explains that he has been working for the last year just kept it off his resume, cause he is in trouble over there and doesn't want them to know he is thinking of leaving. I explained that a) making it seem that he has been out of work for a year, is not going to help him and b) having another job that someone is looking to fire you is also not good.
Finally, I just interupted him and told him I don't think I can help. Thanked him for his time.
So that is my story of the day.
Eagerly awaiting some more funny stories
