Lighter side: Hilarious proof job hunting at work is dangerous

by |
While some of us are better at multi-tasking than others, this week brought pretty strong evidence that when it involves applying for new jobs, it’s probably best to keep the multi-tasking out of the office. An Associated Press photo editor has been busted for job hunting at work after a copy-and-paste disaster resulted in the whole world discovering her secret.

Karly Domb Sadof accidentally pasted a paragraph from her cover letter to Buzzfeed into a completely unrelated photo caption. What’s worse, the photo – accompanied by the offending caption – was sent to all AP’s newspaper clients across the US. According to Gawker, it wasn’t long before Sadof had to send a follow-up email correcting the caption.

But Sadof’s cover letter mustn’t have been all that bad, since according to her Twitter profile, she remains in her position at AP.

    Her writing style alone would have put me off. Good thing AP kept her.
