Lesbian sex postition

I work in the human resources department for a state agency, and we recently posted a job listing for a clerk typist position. We received one resume this morning that caught my lesbian sex postition, but not for a good reason. The top of the resume prominently featured a photo of the applicant, which I thought was weird enough, and then my eyes inevitably went to the focus of the photograph: her tattooed cleavage.

This is one of those situations where it’s so hard not to give unsolicited advice to the applicant! First of all, why would she think it was a good idea to use a photo on her resume? I want to tell her that any job that regards her choice of photo as a positive will not be the type of place she really wants to work. Which, I have to say, made me want to look at her facebook page out of curiousity, but didn’t help her at all on the actually getting a job front. Is this trend of including a headshot with other application materials going to catch on? Or is it just another gimmick?

There have always been a small number of job applicants who do this, and it is a really, really bad idea. It is neither trend nor gimmick, just silly naïveté. I tell job candidates I’m a lesbian in case it’s an issue for them? If true, it’s insane because it’s a great way to open yourself up to charges of racial or age discrimination. I nor anyone I know includes headshots when applying to jobs. The exception being anything model or acting related, obviously. Los Angeles may have a large entertainment sector, but we are not crazy.
