I hate writing in the kind of application jargon that seems impossible to avoid, as the person spec is invariably riddled with it. I wish “Just give me the job, I can do it, trust me” was enough.

Just make up your own jargon like I do
  • Boom management
  • Galactic intelligence
  • Whipsmarting
You'll stand out from the other CVs and they'll think you're way ahead of the tronge.

I’m applying for jobs at the mo, and wording the personal statement bit against the person spec is fucking soulless. I hate selling myself and I hate writing in the kind of application jargon that seems impossible to avoid, as the person spec is invariably riddled with it. I wish “Just give me the job, I can do it, trust me” was enough.

Oddly enough, back in the 90s I used that technique when applying for a job as a PA.  I acknowledged in the application letter that it was unorthodox, but that my confidence that I could do the job was well-founded.  And the result?  Cunts never even bothered contacting me!
