Everyone gets fired at least once. (And if not, well, you're just not trying very hard.) And we all think of brilliant and immature 'shoulda saids' and 'shoulda dones' for weeks after. (Okay, years.) This Will Not Look Good on My Resume is a collection of loosely related stories and employments that did not end well.

A quirky bit of fun that slaps you upside the head.


"Ya made me snort root beer out my nose!" Moriah Jovan, The Proviso

About the Author

Jass Richards has a Master's degree in Philosophy and for a (very) brief time was a stand-up comic (now she's more of a sprawled-on-the-couch comic). Despite these attributes, she has received four Ontario Arts Council grants. In addition to her Rev and Dylan series (The Road Trip Dialogues, The Blasphemy Tour, License to Do That, and The ReGender App), which has reportedly made at least one person snort root beer out her nose, she has written This Will Not Look Good on My Resume ('nuff said), followed by its sequel Dogs Just Wanna Have Fun (ditto). She has also written the perfect cottage-warming gift, TurboJetslams: Proof #29 of the Non-Existence of God and a (way)-off-the-beaten-path first contact story, A Philosopher, A Psychologist, and an Extraterrestrial Walk into a Chocolate Bar. Excerpts from her several books have appeared in The Cynic Online Magazine, in Contemporary Monologues for Young Women (vol.3) and 222 More Comedy Monologues, and on Erma Bombeck's humor website. Her one-woman play Substitute Teacher from Hell received its premiere performance by Ghost Monkey Productions in Winnipeg.
