Many of us spend a lot of time making sure our CVs are perfect before sending them off. There’s so much competition these days for whatever career you’re dreaming of, so it’s always good to only send off something you’re 100% happy with.
However, when one guy decided it was time to update his CV, he decided to take a risk – by using Google autocomplete to fill out the entirety of his resume.
And it’s safe to say, it didn’t work out too well.
London-based author Aaron Gillies, who goes by the Twitter username TechnicallyRon, uploaded a photo of his newly-completed CV to his Twitter. He captioned it: ‘I needed to update my CV so I did it all through google autocomplete and soon I will have every job’.
He’s previously used autocomplete to make a dating profile, so he’s pretty much a pro in using technology to get what he wants.
Using the traditional layout, Aaron made sure to include all things such as his name, his location and his date of birth.
It’s the answers to these things that didn’t quite work out.
Using autocomplete, Aaron managed to tell potential employers that his name is Khan, that he lives alone and that his phone ‘won’t turn on’. Important information, we know.
But it gets better.
In regards to his date of birth, Aaron started his sentence with ‘I was born’, and it was completed by Google with: ‘To love you’.
Other important information included that Aaron is married to England, that he identifies as a wolf he is trained in ‘gorilla warfare’.
When asked to complete his profile, Google autocomplete completely stitched Aaron up, filling out the section with: ‘I am good at nothing but I can carry you’.
While the CV may have been filled with a load of incredibly funny answers, Aaron, or should we say Google, finished it on a rather honest note.
