The 12 most hilarious CVs in the history of jobseeking

It’s safe to say that these people did not get the job.

IF THERE’S ONE thing people love to go on about when you’re looking for a job, it’s “put a lot of effort into your CV.”

Well, these people took that advice, considered it, and then did the exact opposite – with comical results.

1. The irony is strong in this one

This is the equivalent of going for a job at a fancy stationery shop and handing your CV in on the back of an old napkin.

2. Applying for the role of Editor-In-Chimp, no doubt

It features a monkey wearing glasses on the phone. GIVE THIS PERSON THE JOB RIGHT NOW.

3. “My favourite film just happens to be Devil’s Wear Prague!”

HE DOESN’T EVEN BITE THE SANDWICH AT THE START. How many takes did he have to do?

7. The handwritten touch

The lined paper is what makes it all come together.

8. Au naturel leader

This person accidentally sent in a picture of Nicolas Cage instead of their CV and Cover Letter due to a mix up with a .zip file. Still, it could work?

10. Dose things right the first time…
