Re: Sexing up the good old CV

I've helped with vetting CVs to select who to put forward for interviews in the past.

We would let a few of the obvious BSers through because we wanted to hear how they performed in the interview (sometimes testing practical skills in the lab).

Frequently they were fresh graduates and therefore "experts" on everything they've heard about at Uni but have no practical experience.

Would that be the Dunning-Kruger effect?
