Not having a job sucks when you need money. Of course it’s great to not work. But 99% of us have to in order to survive and have decent things. So when you’re looking for work, you generally apply to A LOT of places. At some point you go numb and stop paying attention to your job resume and cover letter. It’s basically the same thing each time, but you switch out a couple key words to personalize the letter/resume. Well, one individual got lazy and used an automated system to make those changes.

And boy did it bite him on the ass.

IT & Marketing Manager Sam Best was going over CVs (basically resumes) when he glanced his eyes over one and saw porno links.

The 27-year-old from Blackburn couldn’t believe his eyes but knew exactly what had happened for this person to send in their CV with a porn link on it. “When creating a CV, people will usually copy and paste any information with repetitive formatting. So if they’re adding a new job role, they’ll copy the previous one, paste it and change the information,” Sam said.

“I have read some pretty bad CVs, some with terrible spelling n evn a cpl writtn in txt tlk. This CV definitely tops them all for the worst and most embarrassing fuck up!” I feel for the dude. Before Radass, I used to blind email hundreds of people a day for a marketing job.

I used software that was supposed to autofill the client’s name in the email. At least a half-dozen times a day I would get an angry reply about filling in the wrong name or business.

Sometimes it would just say, “Dear [insert name]”. The moral of the story is don’t be lazy when looking for a job. At the very least, copy and paste the edits. Don’t leave it to automated software…
