to get a CV right? Seriously?

I have had a lot of conversations with people over the past couple of months and longer about job applications. And the one thing I put to people and employers/ interviewers put to me, is that preparation is key. Get the basics right!

  • No spelling mistakes
  • No punctuation mistakes
  • No lies
  • No photocopies
  • No “personal” email addresses (eg dutchgold01@…)
  • No pictures/ images/ colours
  • No unnecessary information.
  • No informalities
  • No shortcuts
  • No unused/ nonworking contact details
  • No out of date information
  • No public profiles on social networking sites (Facebook, Bebo, myspace etc) Employers are using them!

That’s some of the basics. More detailed stuff coming up soon!

I came across this on Fortifyyouroasis and then found this as a consequence.  I really planned on keeping it for later in the year, but well, it made me laugh a lot so I had to share….Plus, it’s actually rather brilliant.

(yes, I know I’m being vague, but I really want you to read it and I don’t want to give the game away…)

updated: link fixed – sorry about that.
