Focused’s Top Five CV No No’s

We have sifted through hundreds of CVs the good the bad and the ugly, we have compiled just five of the embarrassingly brilliant mistakes floating around the web.

At number five our favourite arrogant applicant:

“I have guts, drive, ambition and heart, which is probably more than a lot of drones that you have working for you.”

Not quite sure the angle this applicant was working on but insulting the staff that could possibly employ you is probably not the best route to take!

Number four and three bring us the candidates that haven’t quite got the hang of proof reading:

“I speak fluent English and Spinach”

“I enjoy cooking Italians and Chinese”

We fear these candidates may eat us for dinner rather than be an asset to the company.

Hitting number two is the student that is gunning for the top dog:

“Student today. Vice president tomorrow.”

Our top spot goes to the person that admits that there is a high chance they won’t be in on time:

“I am very bad about time and don’t mind admitting it. Having to arrive at a certain hour doesn’t make sense to me. What does make sense is that I do the job.”
