Here comes the sun

Just a quick note to anyone who is thinking applying for a job this weekend - don't! We've had a crap summer and we all need to appreciate this excellent sun that has final decided to show its face. So go sit in the sun, have some drinks and then enjoy, it's unlikely to last.

You never know, life might not seem so bad when you get back to work on Tuesday and you might just decide to stay!

CV on one page

It seems that there is a trend to get CVs down to one page.

I really want to know who are the people that decide that they wouldn't read a well set out, clear CV that is written on two pages.

I personally prefer two pages. The CVs that I have seen on one page are either lacking in detail or are jam-packed onto one page, making the CV very difficult to read.

Perhaps there is a case for a one page CV for your first job as some employers don't really care about what you've done outside of school or university. Then again many do and I don't think its worth the risk leaving that stuff out!

If you're an employer who'd reject someone with a two page CV then you probably should look twice at your recruitment policy.
