We bring you some unusual CV’s that people were not thinking about, for others, the stress and anxiety that comes from looking for a job or changing careers proves to be too much for their editing mind. You might be so concerned about getting a job, and you overlook common mistakes you would never miss otherwise.
When they emailed over their CV’s, it was too late to correct the errors; and this is made even worse when you are applying for a new job. Just don’t make the same mistakes when you press send.
These first ten mistakes are relatively common. (9)
