Re: Never trust a CV

"An interview and a test are required for anyone wanting a technical role with me"

The test my employer uses is rather amusing - and very effectively sorts out the wheat from the chaff

What gobsmacked us was when one applicant for a fairly technical security role responded: "Oh I don't know any of that, i just get a man to do it for me." - the scary part being that she was working a similar role in a large uk government department at the time, had a couple of similar jobs earlier in her CV and had glowing references (which we'd checked).

Needless to say, she didn't get the job.
