Jobs & Careers > My Moron Story

My Moron Story

The library I work at is hiring. The job posting is a full page detailing application requirements and the job description.

I emailed it to the two local high schools.

Then the resumes flooded in (and I do mean flooded), most of them ignoring the requirements (two copies of resume, cover letter detailing what hours they can work).

It turns out that one high school announced the job over the intercom, leaving out all the details. And high school students aren't smart enough to go find the details apparently.

I had one resume emailed to an address that is only used for the library newsletter, with a childish email a few days later full of spelling mistakes saying they really want to get the job. Um, no, you won't even be considered.

Morons not reading the job posting.

The library director actually said not to tip people off to the requirements - she's using that as a way to weed down the flood of applications. If you can't read the requirements, you have no chance of working here.

At least it makes for some fun at work talking about the morons!

How about the couple who were out walking in the wilderness with no bear bells or bear spray when they were almost eaten by a bear. What a couple of morons.

One time my job involved receiving resumes from law school graduates. One man's was so pathetic - poorly typed, rumpled, typos - we wanted to offer to make up a decent one for him. I wonder where he is today.

I will not comment on '2 wrongs don't make a right' but maybe another moron?
