Re: Sexing up the good old CV

I was interviewing someone in a situation like that a few years ago. He'd been unemployed for a while and was desperate for a job, the recruiter had added all sorts of things to his CV. The "additions" to his skills and experience had worked as I wouldn't have interviewed him otherwise. It was a bloody awful experience for him as I tried to tease out how he got that experience when it wasn't obvious from his CV, I could feel the awkwardness down the phone... Once we realised what had happened he calmed down a bit.

I was livid (see icon!) and wanted to see if I could get the recruiter blacklisted; but the candidate asked me not to take it further so I respected his wishes.
