With a pile of 300 rÃ©sumÃ©s on his desk and a need to pick someone quickly, my boss told me to make calls on the bottom 50 and toss the rest.Â
“Throw away 250 rÃ©sumÃ©s?” I asked, shocked.
“What if the best candidates are in there?”
“You have a point,” he said. “But then again, I don’t need people with bad luck here.”
An applicant was filling out a job application.
When he came to the question, “Have you ever been arrested?”
He answered, “No.”
The next question, intended for people who had answered in the affirmative to the last one, was “Why?”
The applicant answered it anyway: “Never got caught.”
