One hopeful job applicant well and truly cocked up his chances of employment when he accidentally texted nude photos of himself to his potential new boss.
The company had actually offered the 23-year-old a “conditional offer of employment” but, a couple of days later, he completely blew it when the female HR officer at the company received two naked selfies from the young lad.
Remarkably, the new starter only sent the second snap after he got no reply to the first, and he then later embarrassingly actually tried to call the number.
The police were contacted and an investigation was launched. The man did admit to sending the photos but claimed that they were intended for someone else.
The man, from Illinois, U.S., was ultimately let off and the company decided not to press charges against him. To no surprise though, they also didn’t want him working for them. Besides anything else, just imagine how awkward his first day would have been!
Michael Ruth, Elmhurst police chief, said:
He texted the HR director and sent a nude photo of himself. My understanding is they’ve rescinded the offer of employment.
This has got to be one of the most costly wrong numbers of all time!
