Interesting CV

CV’s are broken.

  • they are no fun to do
  • we exaggerate in order to get the chance of the job
  • they exaggerate the job making it better than it is

Lets change things

Interesting CV

Wouldn’t it be better if the process of creating a CV was fun, was honest, made you feel better about yourself and showed evidence of your abilities in a beautiful and interesting way?

How would it be if the relationship between the employer and the employed was a good match right from the start?

How would it be if the relationship was one of qualities based on mutual respect and appreciation?
