Busty reminder of need for CV rigour

Being a fan of both charismatic curriculum vitae and ample shirt potatoes, Guru can not see the problem with a job candidate putting down their contact email address as bigboobs@yahoo.com.

However, it seems that 63% of employers have seen inappropriate personal email addresses such as the above and the equally intriguing hotstuff@hotmail.com. According to a poll by recruitment website fish4jobs.co.uk, badly presented and written CVs are more of a turn-off to 73% of employers than candidates showing up late, wearing inappropriate clothes or swearing in an interview.

Are you ready for the list of errors, disciples? Here it comes…

  • Candidates claiming to have “worked in a busty office”

  • People looking for “a job as a manger”
  • Jobseekers after a position in “pubic relations”
  • Many candidates “have been trained in fist aid” rather than first aid
  • They often claim to be “a good leeder”
  • All this despite the fact that most of them either “attended collage” or went to “a very good skool”
  • Friends describing jobseekers as “gobby”
  • Perhaps that’s because interests include “going to the pub” and “gossiping”

Guru would make further comment but he’s too busy looking for bigboobs@yahoo.com on Facebook.

    It’s not just the applicants that have ‘little accidents’ with the auto correct. I recently received this from a recruitment agency.

    I will forward your e – mail across to her, and ask her to call you at her earliest continence.
