Sue Baker's view...

Which is worse – the overwhelming self-importance, unfathomable jargon, obvious fibs or the too blushingly personal? We are talking CV’s and Jenny Crompton has found some of the worst imaginable, quite stunningly bad efforts which should act as a How-not-to-do-it guide for any potential job seeker.

Synopsis

Crap CVs by Jenny Crompton

Application for Employment I refer to the recent death of the Technical Manager at your company and hereby apply for the replacement of the deceased manager. Each time I apply for a job, I get a reply that there is no vacancy but in this case I have caught you red-handed and you have no excuse because I even attended the funeral to be sure that he was truly dead and buried before applying. Attached to my letter is a copy of my CV and his death certificate. Crap CVs is a hilarious compilation of the worst job applications imaginable, including overly-honest cover letters, embarrassing typos, mortifying personal revelations, awkward interview questions, misplaced self-confidence, self-aggrandizing gibberish, blatant truth-twisting and, of course, outright lies.
