Job Applicant Sparks Resume Writing Debate

One Reddit user shared an application from an unnamed job applicant, generating hundreds of comments and a resume writing debate.

In the controversial resume, the applicant shared experience “formatting bi-monthly magazine with more than 10,000 readers, proof-reading and formatting soft-cover books” and other editorial work.
