CV Tip #172 (Magaluf?)

5 Jun

From a career history on a CV:

‘2009 I was Holidays in Abroad back to learn world cultures and adventure’

I can say with confidence that an in-house recruiter who has to wade through an ocean of crap CVs in a stuffy office day in day out does not want to know about you living the high life. Puting ‘career break’ or ‘travel’ would have been fine in this instance.

What’s even worse is the fact that you’ve also demonstrated the literacy aptitude of a five year old.
