“You would be surprised how many people can't proper Google. I am not talking about technical use of browser and Google. I am talking about writing the proper keywords, excluding some or try and test different phrases,” wrote a Twitter user. “Got one where hobby was scrolling Insta reels,” shared another. “I often joke that if you took Google away from me, I'd be useless! I think knowing how to search Google well is a pretty cool skill to have, but if you put it on your CV, expect it to be tested,” wrote a third. “My resume says I can juggle. I can't, I just want to know how closely my interviewer is reading it,” commented a fourth.

McGee also clarified in one of the comments that the candidate had a great CV overall.
