Hi guys,

Long time lurker, very occasional poster.

I have a favour to ask.

I don't think my CV is that great.

Don't worry about the formatting too much. The .DOC version is much cleaner.

Can someone please tell me where I'm going wrong?

Love you long time,

Love you long time,
JohnnyThe root problem is you're Australian other than that the c.v. looks useable - not many stand out companies

Think you may be a middle order kind of guy

Luv you lots too xx

Thank you for your prompt and helpful response.

I must admit I thought being Australian may put me at a disadvantage, though there are a few multinationals in there.

Would it help to highlight that I am an E.U citizen?

You will have to excuse Troll's sledgehammer attempts at wit. The arse in his avater is the one he uses for both talking and thinking!

I've found that being a foreigner is more of an advantage than a disadvantage. :grin

Many employers are a little embarrassed about to enquire about the finer points of your immigration status so it's worth while clearing the air on that one up front. "EU citizen, free to live and work anywhere in the EEA."

HTHJohnny as a newb you will have learn to distinguish between a valid reply which contains some tongue in cheek remarks & replies from empty potty-heads suffering from lastworditus who don't really add any value to the threads
