Paul Fabretti, a regular gapingvoid commenter is looking for work. Here he talks about putting his CV online:
I am looking for work. simple as that. If you think there may be an opening in the Manchester area [UK] for a marketer of all trades/digital marketer, or know of someone who knows someone (you get the picture!) please do get in touch! Yes, the CV is a bit stuffy, but skip through it – get the overall picture. If you are looking for someone who has practiced a lot of what he preaches and is creative and reliable, do please get in touch.
To be honest, I am terrified about the response. Several recruitment companies suggested I don’t even put my blog on my CV so to put it online is tantamount to suicide in conventional books!
I think it’s a good idea. To heck with the recruitment companies. When I started gapingvoid in 2001, I was seriously unemployed. So landing a job was a big goal for it. Though I’m not unemployed anymore, creating business opportunities remains its primary raison-d’etre.
