Clearing some paperwork this afternoon I came across the CV I used for my last position in full time employment. It brought back memories… and I thought of the day I heard about the job, the people I worked with and the work I did. It was a little unusual as I was already working there on a part-time basis and before that as a volunteer.

How my life has changed in the past few years! I am a very different person in so many ways. I am older of course, not as afraid of technology but alas no longer allowed to work for health reasons.


If things were different and I was allowed to work, how would you word my CV?

  1. There’s a problem here: The better CVs are short and concise – there’s so too much to say that short and concise wouldn’t do it justice.

    heck, I’d like a CV that good

  3. Ah with all those toyboys you won’t need a CV . . you can be a ‘kept’ woman! But . . .

    Excellent track record, although I am not a horse.

    Have sewing kit and can repair that embarrasing tear before board meetings . . (after photographing it for my next CV or ensuring job security)
    Good memory
    Sense of humour
    Totally ‘connected’ (if not easily distracted by Toyboys)

    Nowadays a CV has 50% chance of being studied by a female.

    Interviews are more usually before a panel of male and females so I might end up out the door if I offered VIT!

  7. Is this reverse sexism? If Grannymar was Grandadmar and talking about toygirls, somehow I think he would be in a lot of trouble and receiving a lot of scorn.

    its a theory unless GM has been quietly running another blog as a man as well.

  8. Will

    One blog is more than enough for me thanks!

    I do agree with you about the scorn, I sometimes wonder how i get away with saying the things I do. But then GM means no harm to anybody.

  9. I can’t even write my own.

    BTW I read Will’s idea for Hobbies as Toyboys and Cooking Toyboys.

  10. Oops…I really should read through before submitting…my attaempt was for GM not mine!!

  11. Well we now know the name of GM’s book.

    Its either “Cooking Toyboys” or “Cooking For Toyboys”
