  Today, I found out that my resume contained the word "masturbation" in the skills section, courtesy of a practical joke by my best friend. I have been using this CV unsuccessfully for over two months. FML

28- there are a couple factors that determine whether something is a skill, a hobby, or both. In order for it to be strictly a skill, OP must be talented in the realm of masturbation from much experience, but doesn't enjoy it. If it is only a hobby, than OP just enjoys it, but would fail miserably against someone in a contest. Or OP, like many people, masturbated a lot because they like it, and this experience gains skill.

It probably would have been safer for his friend to write "I'm lonely" in the "about me" section.

42- Your definitions were so far from being correct. You can enjoy something you're skilled at and you can be great at a hobby... Also, it was a resume not a Facebook profile. There is no 'about me' section.

42- That is entirely untrue. You can have a hobby you enjoy and win some sort of contest at it because you are very good at what you like doing. And I don't see any reason why you can't enjoy a skill you use at the workplace. Also, the whole resume is an 'About Me' section. Your skills, training, previous jobs and reasons why you quit or were terminated.

Your friend is a piece of shit. YOU are also a dick for not noticing sooner. Someone with a sense of humour might offer an interview, if they are looking for attention to detail in a candidate..

It could be a valuable skill for assembly line jobs. Toned arms and dedication to repetitive actions. It's all in finding the right hr person to explain it to.

This person is making so many job-seeking errors. You aren't supposed to use a one-size-fits-all resume. Tailor your resume for every job you apply for. And ALWAYS review it before sending out. Common sense isn't that hard. This is SUCH a huge ydi.

After every hand-in look back over it and look for honest potential improvements or modification. I dont like it when people don't make sure everything is in order
