CV Building Workshop No.2

Monster got back to me in monstrously quick time about the AWUYCV article

Question 1. Who is this aimed at?

Expected answer:  No-one, idiots.

Actual answer:  “These articles are aimed at job seekers like yourself to try and improve their CV and become more visible to the employers that use Monster as a means of finding suitable candidates for their available roles.”

Question 2. Couldn’t you have used nicer colours?

Expected answer:  Certainly

Actual Answer:  ” The colours used on these pages are used for their clarity in what message Monster is trying to get across to the job seekers”

And finally,

Question 3: Where did you hear these sentences?

Expected Answer:  On the train back to London

Actual Answer: “ These particular sentences have been selected based on the number of years Monster has been active as a job board and feedback from our clients on what they are looking for when searching for appropriate candidates.”

Wow.  I was way off.  Also notice how Monster have made the answers SO BORING that you can’t bear to read them more than once.

A classic defence.

    Energetic – I had hoped the 12 mugs of coffee I have a day would make me energetic. Instead it’s made me erratic, paranoid and to an extent a blubbering idiot…

    After reading your excellent example sentences that include those incredibly powerful words Utilised and Supervised – I feel I can now honestly and justifiably use them in my CV.

    All the best.
