Resume the Resume

Situation: Students are asked to survey two resumes from people applying for the same position. One resume from New Jersey is outstanding. The second resume from Kansas is lackluster with grammatical errors and so on and so forth.

Teacher: If you were to recommend a new employee based on these resumes, who would you hire? Would you hire the person from New Jersey or Kansas?

Student: Definitely, Kansas!

Teacher: (stunned) Why Kansas and not New Jersey?

Student: We live in Arizona … the commute is shorter.
