I was starting to wonder if CV’s matter any more given that anyone with a Linked In account can have their CV included in their profile. I recently came across a blog post written by a recruitment agency about what makes a good CV. Clearly recruitment agencies are the primary conduit for CV’s to larger enterprises so it’s very interesting to see what they have to say about what makes a good CV. It also proves that CV’s are still legitimate currency despite the ubiquity of Facebook and LinkedIn profiles.
My kids ask me all the time why they can’t sword fight with big sharp sticks and I have to explain to them that even though it will be fine 99% of the time, there just has to be one small error and it can cause a lot of trouble. OK – well I try to put it simpler than that.
