27-year-old Jacques Paul admittedly “freaked out” when, after fastidiously editing his résumé to suit the employment criteria for his “dream job,” he accidentally attached a copy of his sexually transmitted disease test results to his application rather than his professional cover letter.
“I’d just got my PDF [of my STD results] downloaded, and I was all negative, thankfully,” Paul, from the London borough of Haringey, explained to SWNS.
After receiving the good news, Paul, during the height of the pandemic in 2020, applied to his ideal job.
But unfortunately, he mistook his digital medical report for his professional paperwork. “Then I accidentally attached it to the job application and sent it in,” he said.
Paul — who’s now gainfully employed, and is finally able to laugh about his over sharing misstep — virally shared his job hunt blunder on TikTok, raking in a whopping 1.2 million views from commiserative spectators.
