As a favor to my fiancé, I agreed to update his friend’s resume and help her create a LinkedIn profile. I figured she would be at least somewhat computer literate and have a decently organized resume, because she worked as a clerk.

I was so wrong. There was no capitalization, no punctuation, words that were so blatantly misspelled that a nine year old would catch it, and I won’t even get into the formatting. I honestly don’t understand how she got the job she had with that resume.

Just a few snippets from our time together:

Me: First things first, you need a new email address.

Client: What’s wrong with this one?

Me: It has both the words “dragon” and “kitty” in it.

Me: How fast can you type?

Client: Maybe 100 wpm.

Me: Take this type speed test.

Client: Why is it giving me such a low score, I typed way more than 5 words.

I had a look at her screen.

Me: …It takes accuracy into account.

Also, she had this habit of typing her first name without a capital first letter. Even worse, she would change it BACK to the incorrect version when I fixed it.
