Shock resume: Man includes racy photo to secure interview

by HCA03 Apr 2014
A man who sent a rather revealing picture of himself with his job application found a job offer was out of reach, however he was not out of reach of the long arm of the law.
Ironically, the Dallas, Texas, man was applying for a position with employment support agency Texas Workforce Solutions.
The TWS employee who received his application and “unique letter of recommendation promptly called police. They tracked his application and issued the man a ticket for 'obscene display or distribution'.”
"I think I know why he can't find a job," police spokesman Demarquis Black told the Dallas Observer.
It's possible the man sent the picture by mistake, as happened to York student Vanessa Hojda in 2012. Luckily for Hojda her mistaken attachment was a fairly innocent photo of Nicolas Cage, rather than anything deserving police attention.

What's the strangest attachment you've received with a job application?

    As an outplacement consultant i have seen many resumes come to me for review. The most interesting are those written in MS Excel. There is good use of columns to set out information but all is lost when printed.
