I received a resume from a gentleman (let's call him "Bill") for an Accountant opening last week. It caught my attention because the cover letter was written by Bill's wife Janet. She said:
"Dear Human Resources:
I would like to relocate my family to [your city] for family related reasons as soon as possible. You can reach me at this number XXX-XXX-XXXX and you can reach Bill on his cell phone at XXX-XXX-XXXX.
I hope to hear from you soon.
I'm baffled. First, I wonder if Bill wants to move as much as Janet does? Second, if this indeed is a joint goal for Bill and Janet, do they really think this approach is going to land a new job for him?
Either way, you already know how this one is going to end as far as I am concerned - in the "no go" pile.
