Re: Sexing up the good old CV

After that I just kept to the truth with the information on my CV.

So do I - what sort of relationship with an employer can you expect if you start off being dishonest. Also, being autistic I'm somewhat inclined to just "say it as it is" which has it's upsides, but also tends to get me in trouble with manglement when they are trying to hide the trust from clients !

But, being truthful on your CV puts you at a distinct disadvantage to all the BSers - typically meaning that you don't get past the first "does it tick all the boxes for the over-egged job spec we've posted".
