Putting a bitmoji on your resume might be the worlds worst idea

first_imgBut there was already some backlash to the bitmoji backlash.”If I see a resume with a bitmoji on it, I’m going to keep reading because I wouldn’t have made that decision and that tells me you might have some ideas I might not have,” Russell Holly, an editor at Android Central, wrote.Wrote another Twitter user, “I would 100% bring in someone with a bitmoji on their resume for an interview.”   “There’s a freaking bitmoji on the résumé.” The stodgiest of business documents is in the midst of its most extreme makeover yet https://t.co/rQBkX7XLBC— The Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) August 13, 2019 FYI: If I see a resume with a bitmoji on it, I will set it on fire. I will not pay any attention to anything else on it. Only the bitmoji is enough to consign it to a pit of eternal torment.

You’re welcome.— Aaron (@Aaron_Kasten) August 14, 2019 Resumes are a necessary evil. But it’s up to job applicants not to make them super evil. An article published Tuesday in The Wall Street Journal revealed that some job applicants are dressing up their applications with waaaaay too much non-business-related detail. idk why but the thought of someone putting a bitmoji on their resume is the funniest thing ever. worth a 2nd interview— Hunter Wiederstein (@ItsHunterTime) August 14, 2019 Tags Bitmojis, in case you’ve managed to escape them so far, are cartoon avatars that can be customized to a thoroughly creepy level to resemble the person using them. “Create your Bitmoji and be yourself wherever you go,” the company’s site proclaims. And apparently some job hunters are adding the friendly little cartoons to their please-hire-me documentations, whether electronic or otherwise. The Journal’s example is especially egregious: an applicant for a teaching job at the Indianapolis high school included a bitmoji of himself waving and the word “hi” at the top, quickly making himself the hey-get-a-load-of-THIS-guy story of the faculty room.The Journal story went on to discuss other things job-seekers should stay away from (pastel colored resumes; moody — or any — photos; lists of random hobbies), but it was the bitmoji mention that took off.”If I see a resume with a bitmoji on it, I will set it on fire,” Sascha Segan, lead analyst for PCMag, wrote in a tweet. But watch out, HR people. The Journal might have created a monster.”I’m going to apply with a resume of only memes, and various emojis,” one tweeter wrote. “You’re welcome.” If I receive a resume with a bitmoji and it doesn’t look like the person, I’m throwing it straight in the bin.— Incognegro (@Brandon_JD) August 13, 2019 Online Mobile Appslast_img
