I once got a video resume submitted to me for a marketing position where the background of the video was the person’s kitchen counter – piled high with dirty dishes from what looked like at least a month of neglect. I can’t remember a thing about the candidate, just their extremely poor judgement in video background.
I do remember thinking to myself “if this was the BEST background they had in their place, what did the rest look like?!”
I also got a paper resume once that had the name and email address at the top blacked out in sharpie and the person I was talking to had written theirs in.
Their explanation was, “It was a typo”.
