Jobseeker sends off CV - with link to a porn site halfway through

It really pays to double-check

If you're a young job-hunter who recently applied for a post in Blackburn, be warned - your interview may not be quite what you expect.

IT and marketing manager Sam Best was trawling through a pile of CVs when he came across one that stood out from the crowd. Because between descriptions of his work placement at Marks and Spencer and his charity volunteering, the applicant included a link to a porn site.

"I have read some pretty bad CVs, some with terrible spelling and even a couple written in text talk," Sam tells the Lad Bible. "This CV definitely tops them all for the worst and most embarrassing f*** up!"

Sam did check out the link to the porn site - in which a 'dark haired leggy sweetie' apparently has an 'extra workout with her man' - purely in the interests of research, you understand.

"I didn't watch it all because staff were complaining about the noise. It could have been a lot worse though," he says.

And he's toying with the idea of calling the hapless youth in for interview, just to see what he might say.

While we're always told to check and check again before sending off a job application, it's all too easy to miss a howler.

Last month, we listed some of the worst we'd ever come across. They include the prospective intern who got shirty when their email didn't get an immediate response and the 'unflaggingly hard worker' who points out that 'Egos can be a huge liability, and I try not to have one'.

And porn in particular has a way of sneaking into the most unlikely places. Last summer, for example, Heinz put a QR code on bottles of ketchup that were supposed to lead to a site where customers could design their own label. Instead, though, it took them to German porn site Fundorado.

In October 2014, an estate agent in Notting Hill shocked locals by showing a porn station called Babestation on the television in its window - apparently a prankster had managed to change the channel from outside using a universal remote.

And a couple of months later, a McDonalds restaurant in Switzerland accidentally showed a series of X-rated episodes from German channel Sport 1's Sexy Sports Clips programme - although nobody complained.
