A friend who owns a small coffeeshop advertised for someone to work a four-hour shift a few days a week.  He received 46 applications.  Things have really changed as he has had trouble getting staff before.   I saw some of the resumes and was startled by how polished they were.   Several applicants were very overqualified and he actually ended up hiring a woman with a degree.

I shuddered looking at those resumes.  Glad I wasn’t in that position.  Not yet, anyway.   

There’s an old cartoon –  Popeye the sailor is at the unemployment office – sitting in front of  an employment counsellor.   The counsellor waves a piece of paper and says,

 “I yam what I yam…what kind of resume is this?!”
