Funny infographic. You had me until the very end, when I read “Using friends as referees.” I think it should be references. :-)

Hi Brad,

Glad you liked it. Referees are the people who give references. Hope that clarifies.

About 4-5 years ago, I was tasked by my boss to scan over some documents and he said to pick out 5 likely candidates. Turns out they were resumes. It took me 7 hours to find the 5 he was looking for. The one resume I will never forget is about 50 or more pages – take note, it’s only 1 resume. :)
Funny infographic! Thanks for sharing!
