What Would Deadpool’s Best-Possible Resume Look Like?
Lots of people are excited about the upcoming superhero movie Deadpool. However, to call this character edgy would be something of an understatement, and it’s not altogether clear that he’d be anyone’s first choice as a hero to call. Imagine what he’d be like as a coworker.
The resume artists at NovoResume have used their expertise to construct Deadpool a resume that frames his questionable past in a positive light, like any good resume should. They claim to have done it for the chimichangas. It would give any sensible HR department pause.
Here are a some of the red flags we’d notice right away if we worked in HR.
- First, the fact that Deadpool’s education included Doctor Killebrew Institute of Torturous Experiments made us almost not notice he never finished high school. Not quite the educational background we usually look for.
- Deadpool’s skills chart suggests he’s not so strong on Planning and Strategy, certainly not as good as he is with Assassination Technique and Humor and Sarcasm. A supervisor lacking in that last skill might find him or herself on the receiving end of that first one. This should get a flag. A red sticky maybe.
- We find Deadpool’s apparent facility in five languages to be a definite asset, much more impressive than his goal of jumping universes to steal the Batmobile.
A resume’s supposed to ultimately be an honest representation of who you really are, delivered up in a thoughtfully strategic manner. NovoResume gets it right. But this may be a time honesty isn’t so much the best policy.
