We in HR always encourage people to be creative. But sometimes, we ourself become so much creative that the we forget the distinction between creative and riotously hilarious . Here is one example of an applicant who tried being witty and end up being buffoon. Please find below the CV which he has sent as an attachment. Its ok if he is applying for ad agency or so, but sending such CV to an IT company is like a crime.

Also i really have to share his application letter. Its height of over confidence and informality.


I understand that you are in recruiting, if you or your clients are interested in filling an HR, L&D or any interesting vacancy then you can help me.

I have +9 years of international experience across the HR and L&D function. I have managed cross-functional L&D and HR operations and delivered complex projects with aggressive time lines and large teams. While being well versed with all functions in L&D I have an excellent understanding of effective IT enabled HR & L&D projects and New-Employee life cycle. Besides I am open for anything bigger & better immaterial of the function.

I really wanted to write this reply to him, but just didn't...

Thanks for your interest in our company. Your profile was really interesting, but unfortunately our company focus more on work rather than buzz. Wdont believe in inventions, but evolutions. We don't believe in retirement, but growing beyond work pressures.

Anyways, all the best for your search. Hope you get a job where monday mornings are not that killing.

One last minute tip... if u want to be in mainstream, behave like mainstream rather than somebody who is not only out of stream, but out of control.
