I just posted a question on LinkedIn asking what is the most unusual experience people have had with candidates. This is one of my favorite questions ever, because it always results in me laughing so hard tears stream down my cheeks! aaaahhh - sometimes we just need the comedy in the middle of our day. My latest was a candidate whose eyebrows were shaved off. Hey - my client didn't specify eyebrows as one of the job requirements!!! hee hee hee
One of the LinkedIn question responses I received was that a candidate had "answer heavy phones" on the resume. The person posting the response said it made him want to interview the candidate just to find out how much the phones weighed:)
Oh, one of my colleagues was recently working to fill a college recruiter position. A candidate responded with "Collage Recruiter" in the subject. We thought we should refer him to the Art Institute if he wanted to recruit collages.
Welp, back to recruiting recruiters...
