Man Accidentally Sends Nude Photos To HR Director, Loses Job Offer

Slow clap.

A 23-year-old man from Aurora, Illinois, followed up on a job interview in the worst way possible.

After the man received a preliminary job offer with the St. Charles-based company, he sent the human resources manager two nude photos of himself between Aug. 11 and 13, according to Elmhurst police.

She didn't respond, but when the applicant later called the office to inquire about next steps, the HR manager recognized the number and reported the unwanted sexts to police. 

"He texted the HR director and sent a nude photo of himself," Elmhurst Police Chief Michael Ruth said, according to the Chicago Tribune. "My understanding is they've rescinded the offer of employment."

The man explained that the nude selfies had been meant for someone else's eyes. The HR manager did not press charges. 

Last year, a Dallas man also sent a prospective employer a photo of a penis, except he attached it in an email along with his job application.
