Already said on Twitter but well done mate! Best of luck with it.

 

I just had the following rant on Facebook:

 

Just had a meeting at a recruitment company where the woman was THE biggest patronising bitch I've ever met! She started by asking general questions about my experience and goals and then, bearing in mind this was NOT a job interview, she sighed, put her hands in her lap and said "Can I give you some advice?" She then proceeds to rip my CV to shreds, said it wasn't detailed enough and it needed more padding out with this, that and the other. My cover letter's too long and all that info should be in my CV and not to worry about keeping it to 1-2 pages. But she also kept repeating that employers only spend 7 seconds looking at applications so I need to make it stand out... by adding more info and increasing the number of pages?!

 

I gritted my teeth and said thank you for the feedback but what I really wanted to do was stand up, tell her to shove her advice up her flabby arse and flounce out of the room like a girl who already lined up TWO interviews (tbc) with a different recruitment company using the SAME CV AND COVER LETTER just 3 hours earlier.

 

In. Your. Face.

One of those temp jobs came good. Start on Monday! Thanks for advice, chaps. No doubt I'll be back here next week when they realise I'm a shitarse

 

Well done, sir! The most important question though - is it near a Pound Bakery?

It's in Trafford Park, so there will be a greasy burger van nearby.

There's your answer GB. This job has gone unfilled for months and it keeps coming up.

I haven't got that desperate, yet.
