Happy New Year Folks!
I hope you’ve had a splendid year and are looking forward to great new things in 2016!
This week, I thought it’d be an appropriate time to take a look back at our blogs (whilst counting views, shares and subscribes) to work out which of our Friday Funnies you (our readers) found the funniest.
I’ve managed to whittle it down to 10 light-hearted favourites for you to re-visit at your leisure. Enjoy!
Number 1: Hilarious CVs
What’s worse? A CV filed wit speeling erros ad tyops…
Or one littered with crass statements like “I’m sick of working with w@nkers?”
We’ll let you decide…
Number 2: Annoying Co-workers
Do you have to bite your tongue at work due to your colleagues’ annoying office habits?
You’re not the only one.
But are you unknowingly annoying the rest of the office?
See for yourself with this blog about the 50 most annoying office habits…you might be unpleasantly surprised.
Number 3: Bamboozling Brainteasers
We love to hate brainteasers.
They can be so frustrating, yet so satisfying (if you can actually get the right answer).
So in this blog, we challenge you to answer 10 of the most difficult (and frankly ridiculous) interview brainteasers ever asked of poor, unsuspecting candidates.
We definitely don’t recommend swiping these for your interviews!
Number 4: Horrible Bosses
We’ve broken down the 10 types of horrible bosses you’re likely to come across.
Sit back and laugh!
Number 5: LinkedIn Blunders
LinkedIn is swiftly evolving into the go-to online platform for stalking potential employees.
Check out 33 of the most ridiculous and completely genuine LinkedIn fails we’ve stumbled across to date…have you made the list?
Number 6: Absurd Interviews
What’s the most cringey thing that’s ever happened to you during an interview?
Now, imagine multiplying that embarrassment by (roughly) a thousand…
Number 7: Odd Jobs
If you’re curious about the strangest jobs in the world, here are just a few odd jobs for your amusement…
Pet food Tester, Teddy Bear Surgeon or Snake Milker!
Number 8: Crazy Job Applications
Sometimes, as a recruitment consultant, you just can’t help but think some applicants simply don’t want t job.
If they did, they certainly wouldn’t write some of the crazy things we’ve seen on CVs!
This blog reveals 8 of the craziest.
Number 9: Terrible Job Adverts
Are you a master of ‘shutting your mouth’?
Do you have a ‘high-level of self-importance’? And are you completely alienated from family and social commitments?
Then we might just have a job for you.
Crybags need not apply.
Number 10: Ludicrous Interviewees
Have you ever had a terrible interview experience?
I’m not talking about fumbling a couple of questions…I’m talking about full-on, mind-blowing, ground-please-swallow-me-up-right-now mortification.
If so, the 91 poor candidates on this list, certainly feel your pain!
I wonder if they got the job…
