That's really well done. She must have an entire closet stuffed with bad examples.

The memorable "massive failure" resumes I've seen include one fellow who provided a picture of his family and information about his religion, and another who named the security clearance he had held. Unfortunately, that name itself was classified TS, and one of our staff who had worked at Nevada Test Site recognized it! (On the other hand, it is probably a security violation to point out a security violation.)

Her advice of proofreading is totally correct. Occasionally I'll look at some resume I wrote years ago, and see errors I'd previously missed. "Oh. No -wonder- they weren't interested in talking to me!"
