A Hiring Joke

True confessions: I can’t tell jokes. I can do knock-knock jokes, but that’s about it. I received this in email today. With any luck I won’t spoil it 🙂

Want to hire only lucky people? Take your stack of resumes. Divide them in half. Throw one half away — those are the unlucky people.

I checked with the person who sent me this, to make sure no one was serious about this technique. Here’s what he said to me: “Not at all. It was a wonderful moment of watching everyone give a puzzled look for about 3 seconds, and then spray whatever they were drinking as they collapsed into laughter.”Good for your daily chuckle, if you haven’t had one yet.
