Resumé Gems

This applicant sounds like a presidential hopeful exuding a George Clooney air of confidence that he somehow already landed the job. Reminds us of Gary Johnson or Herman Cain declaring, “When I’m President of the United States…” Or else he’s the scary intruder who calls from upstairs and tells you he’s in the house.

“My name is BLANK, and I’m very excited about joining the team at FishbowlDC as a Contributing Writer.” Some of the highlights: He’s a “proud DC enthusiast” and a “decorated radio journalist” (kind of like a war hero but not). He goes on to say what has “prepared him to excel at Fishbowl” as well as lessons that “will prove valuable at FishbowlDC.”

We feel like he’s already here.
