What a GREAT resume!

You may think I am kidding, but I am not. I think that if his story is true (and why make up this story!) this ad is in fact a great idea.

I mean, you have been 10 years in jail, finding a job may not be easy. But you do have skills, so why don't point them out, make it clear you have a past and start with a title that you are sure it will draw a lot of attention?

The ad was published in a Canadian newspaper. Click on the image to enlarge.

Click to enlarge If you still can't read the small fonts when enlarged, here are some highlights:

"...participated in the executive level management of 120 people worldwide in a sucessfull pot smuggling venture with revenues in excess of U$ 100 million annually(...) expert in all levels of security(...) well-traveled, speak English, French and Spanish(...) references available from friends, family, US District Attorney..."

Would you interview the guy? I would...

As seen in the now dead blog HireBlog.

I think that I'd prefer him to run the banking system rather than the crooks and clowns that have been doing it!

Wait a second, the Obama administration's dragging its feet on cabinet and sub-cabinet appointments when there's an individual of such clear qualification available? My God, this guy's certainly got more credibility than Tom Daschle, and at least he hasn't structured his entire life around picking the taxpayers' pockets.

I say give him the Department of Commerce, on the condition that 15% of his paycheck goes to reimbursement for the expenses of his incarceration.

I agree this guy sounds like he would be better at running the banks than the Bozos who ran them (& the economy) into the ground & then gave themselves huge bonuses & expense paid trips to luxury resorts AFTER they took bail out money. I suspect that all his trucks & legitimate businesses were seized - so he probably paid the cost of his incarceration in advance.

Minicapt, thank you VERY much for sending the link to his story! I wasn't mistaken, he belongs to the advertising world....
