I used to do freelance resumé work, which meant I regularly visited professional job websites like LinkedIn and Indeed as a way to generate leads. It’s also a good way to learn how not to point out a person’s typos (it’s nothing personal – those darn things exist everywhere!).
When it comes to the hiring process, we’re all looking to put our best foot forward, make a good first impression, or follow some other idiom that makes sense here. Unfortunately, candidates and hiring managers are sometimes too eager to give their document one last review. Here are a few fun typos I’ve found and my made-up definitions.
Obsexsed – a person who really, really wants some lovin’
Scarnio – one of the weakest Bond villains
Opportunites – the best evenings for stargazing
Upfortunately – a positive turn of events
Transfernation – describes an emigrating person
Carer – one who attends your needs
Decuted – made ugly
Handeling – completing a messianic task before getting Bach to other business
Cross-crunctional – twisty sit-ups
Leeder – when Lee is in charge
Cowworker – the person in the cubicle next to you who has a straw bed and milking pail
