Every year, I spend a few of my hours talking to students. It's often the very best part of my job.
Inevitably, there is a question that stops me in my tracks. Questions like, "what's the worst cover letter you have ever seen?" Or, "what's the worst email?"
You get the picture.
So this semester, I am going to ask my HR friends to share the very worst of what they have seen and read, and if not too identifying, I will post them here.
