HAVING an innovative multimedia CV makes you stand out from the pack as a particularly tedious person, according to employers.
IT company boss Mary Fisher said: “Most CVs just arrive typed out an a sheet of A4 with the section headings in bold.
“But in today’s highly competitive jobs markets some individuals go the extra mile, for example by making a mock newspaper about themselves or including a CD of them rapping about their project management experience.
“Imagine being shut in an office with someone like that for months, even years, on end. You would murder them.”
Recruitment consultant Roy Hobbs said: “People who do funky CVs are overly keen little bastards with no integrity, which is exactly what we’re looking for to fill an array of marketing and sales positions.
“It also helps if they have mean, piggy little eyes.”
