Re: Sexing up the good old CV

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".

That is very true. Hopefully it works both ways, and employer that is unable to weed out the obviously embellished ones is one you wouldn't want to work for anyway.
