Strange CV's

Here are some of the weird things that we put in our CV's, according to new research.

According to the research, one hopeful wrote their CV in rhyme while another went straight to the top with his references – and cited God. [Although clearly eager to impress with his credentials, that unfortunate candidate fell at the first hurdle, as he could not offer any contact details for the Almighty].

Another candidate boasted that he was a direct descendant of the Vikings, while someone else modestly listed “Master of Time and Universe” under his experience.

Other jaw-dropping mistakes included the candidate who submitted a photograph of somebody else - raising some question marks over his ability to think ahead, given he had yet to have an interview - and the applicant who only gave their name and number with the phrase: “I want a job.”

The attempt from a jobseeker who offered their CV on a page torn from an exercise book and another sent from email address “lovesbeer@” also failed to make quite the desired impression.
