As an April Fools Day joke, we posted fake job openings for six different positions including Vice President of Evening & Weekend Operations, Drinking Department Managers, Entry Level Beer Tasters, Office Jester, Douchey Photo Model and Puke Cleaner Upper.
We advised applicants to submit their resume to firstname.lastname@example.org and we didn’t expect much to come in, considering it was a joke.
We did receive the following resume however, and we felt compelled to post it here. Benjamin Dover applied for Drinking Department Manager and we have to admit that if it were a real position and Ben was a real guy, we’d probably bring him in for an interview. Check it out and toast your next drink to people with a fantastic sense of humor!
Here’s the cover letter:
I am writing to you today about the following position for your company that I found on your website; Drinking Department Manager. I believe that my background would make me a perfect candidate for the position.
Most recently, my experience has been in the radio station industry, doing upper management stuff. This included running trips to the store to stock the company beer fridge and babysitting coworkers to make sure they did what I told them to do.
I have attached my resume below for your review. I am confident that my experience would be an asset to your company. Thank you for your consideration for this position, and I look forward to the opportunity to speak with you in more detail about my experience.
