A 23-year-old Illinois man is in a bit of hot water after accidentally sending a human resources manager nude photos of himself a few weeks after being offered a job.
The man, who has not been identified, sent two sexually explicit photos to an HR manager at a St. Charles, Ill., company over the span of two days. It clearly did not impress his HR department, who immediately turned the photos over to local authorities and rescinded his job offer.
From The Chicago Tribune:
The human resources manager informed Elmhurst police of the incident on Aug. 14, according to police records.
The HR manager reported that the man sent her two nude photographs of himself via text between Aug. 11 and Aug. 13, according to the police report.
“There was a conditional offer of employment made to this particular applicant,” Elmhurst Police Chief Michael Ruth said. “He texted the HR director and sent a nude photo of himself.”
When the man followed up the next morning with a phone call, Ruth said, company officials saw the number on the caller ID and realized he was the nude selfie sender.
The company involved did not return calls for comment Monday.
“My understanding is they’ve rescinded the offer of employment,” Ruth said.
For what it’s worth, the man claims the whole thing was an accident, and he meant to send the photos to a different person. Yeah, likely story, guy. I can’t imagine how someone would mix up the phone number of a girl (or guy, no judgement here) with an HR manager’s at his new place of employment, but something tells me I wouldn’t want someone like that working for my company, either — even if I wasn’t offended by the photos. Who knows what this guy could accidentally send to clients.
The texter told police it was all a mistake.
“(Police) contacted the offender who admitted to sending the photographs, explaining they were actually meant for another individual and were sent to the victim in error,” the police report states. “(Police) advised the offender to cease any contact with the victim.”
Luckily for this offender, the HR manager who received the nude pics will not press charges.
Now he can focus on revamping the resume and his LinkedIn account while he starts his job search all over again..
