Re: Your Resume

This is one of the funniest posts I’ve ever read. The blogger at was given the task of hiring a security guy. The job was posted on some online job sites and the resume deluge began. After seeing the results he decided to write an open letter to the applicants. In his words “turns out I hate everyone“.

My favorite excerpts:

  • Once again the title is “Sr Security Engineer”, that means don’t email me from your AOL account. I understand you may not want to email your resume from your current employer, that’s fine, but if you don’t have at least one external email address you can get securely to, you’re not a “security guy” in the first place, go away.
  • You sent your resume today at 8:38AM, 11:13AM and 5:15PM, I deleted all 3 at 9:22PM.
  • It’s 2006, don’t put “proficient with a hammer” on your resume…DOS 5.x 6.x.

I was laughing so hard at this post that my wife woke up and wondered what was going on. I hope you enjoy.

**Note: NSFW language so if that bothers you then don’t complain to me, you’ve been warned.
