I'm amazed that Grendel hasn't made an appearance.

To whom it may concern,
My name is Doc Holliday and I am very interested in your job and newsletter. I have a very unique natural skill set and I am wanting to use my unique and natural skill set of reaching things from the top of really tall things, changing light bulbs, cleaning ceiling fans and more to help you and your company in a team environment. I am a hard worker, and I love to work hard too. Hard work is like my middle name. Doc, Hardwork, Holliday. Yep, that's me and I am he. I do like to eat a lot. Are there any good restaurants near here? I would really like to work for your company offering my skill sets. I could also bring my large metal turkey's basted and brined in liquid smoke, jello shots that are epically strong, and I can even bring my wizard robe and hat. I would also be able to fill any holes or voids for you, so long as they are not gay. I can't do homo. Okay now that I have that out of the way, I also have great mspaint skills that will knock your wizard hat off. Oh, and here is the best part, if zombies attack, I have a semi-bum knee so you can out run me but I also have my machete so I can keep them at bay longer.
In conclusion, I have attached my picture. You can see that I am not a prevaricator and I really do like large metal turkeys braised and brined in liquid smoke (hickory flavored), and I have a very unique and natural skill set that is built to help a team like yours defeat zombies through hardwork, determination and mspaint. Thank you for your no homo time and consideration. kthxbai.
I also kept ignoring this thread after reading the title and thinking what a $#@!ing stupid question. Thankfully I saw it mentioned in Bellmont.
The Oil Can Harry's pic alone makes this thread classics worthy.
Thanks also to StraitHorn for sending me the pic after I asked for it in a PM:
Thank you, everybody! This is the first thread in a long time on any message board that had me laughing from beginning to end. Awesome!
I spent one summer at Trammel Crow's HR dept. Part of my job was sorting resumes. Amazing how much power an unpaid intern has over hiring decisions. If I didn't like the color of the paper on the resume... trash. If there had been a picture on any of them... "dude, check this out. A picture on a resume! Bwahahahahaa!".... trash.
I had a buddy that worked as runner at a law firm in Austin during the Summers at UT. One of our friends was dating this pretty cute chick in law school that applied to be a Summer associate. He found her resume one day and the partner that was going through them had highlighted on hers "Pi Phi" and "Part time aerobics instructor". Needless to say, she got an offer to be a Summer associate for them.
I'd call that green momma's grocery bike either: jellybean, goofball, or loofah-bike.Originally Posted by next2naus
Oh yes, this was about including pictures in resumes or bringing them to interviews. Do whatever you think works best for you.
1) Yes a picture can make a difference ... I won't go into the multiple reasons why (most not so good);
2) I would never want to see a picture if I were reviewing resumes because I would never want to have to answer questions about whether I were reviewing resumes without bias; and
3) If I'm being influenced by pictures, am I truly evaluating applicants based on qualifications (depending on what qualifications means)?
Basically, no pictures in your job process; unless you're applying for a modeling job or other on-camera position.

Sounds like that "Harvard of the Midwest" education isn't all it's cracked up to be.
First time in this thread.
This thread was a winner.
So why is your avatar a picure Mr. Roper when your name is Mr. Furley?
Don't worry. When I go to job interviews, I bring a long a picture of Furley, not Roper.Originally Posted by u2-horn
There has been a recent up tick in people putting their pictures on their resumes, which until recently was a big no no and never seen in the States. But for it's worth, whenever we get a resume with a photo on it, we tend to carry it around the office and laugh at it, regardless of the quality of/in the pic. It's become a joke. But it is a nice bonding experience and really helps morale around the office.
I am sure every office is different, but in mine, it is a definite negative.
Anyone know why or how photos on resumes became acceptable lately?
Because people have gotten to the point where they'll do anything to stand out. The risk of becoming the office joke is worth it.Originally Posted by DCLonghorn
Dude. That guy on the right kind of looks like you!Originally Posted by Firemans4Horn
I'm sorry to be laughing at something that wasn't meant to be a joke, but holy $#@! this that's the funniest post I've ever read.
"recently ironed shirt" + "in front of tree" = comedy
If someone on this thread helps you out by hiring you, will you post the picture? Oh please post it.
