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

  • 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!

This is upsetting news. I hope you find the market in your sector buoyant. On the other hand, have you considered lorry driving?

I got laid off last year from a catering job, this type of job I did too long and resulted in decline with the mental health, after learning about doing jobs that don't make you happy will result in Chronic stress and mental health decline (Currently addressing this with the CPN).
