DIARY: TOP GEAR - Talking CV

’Hi, my name’s Simone and I’m looking for a man who loves kids - I’ve got eight. He’ll be able to see beyond my gammy eye, manic depression, criminal record and dubious hygiene.’

’Hi, my name’s Simone and I’m looking for a man who loves kids -

I’ve got eight. He’ll be able to see beyond my gammy eye, manic

depression, criminal record and dubious hygiene.’



Dating videos. Hmmm, bad idea. An hour’s worth of gargoyles twitching to

the camera might be fun to watch on a slow Tuesday evening, but you

wouldn’t want to recruit your staff like that. Would you?



Well, now you can do something close. Talking CV ’enables employers to

see and hear applicants through a PC and makes it possible to review

their personal qualities and presentation skills’.



Note the tactful use of the words ’personal qualities’. Just in case

you’re in any doubt, this really means: ’You can make sure they’re not

freaks who are going to scare the secretary or piss in your pot

plant.’



While Talking CV might raise ethical questions about awarding jobs based

on personal appearance, the fact is that looking the part is half the

battle. So if you can bear the guilt, or if you couldn’t care less and

you’re pushed for time, you might want to find out about Talking CV.
