    Ah - so it sounds as if my 3 page American "resume" could qualify as a British CV.

    Thanks everyone.

    CVs can be hugely varied, ranging from including everything about your whole life ever, right down to short ones that are only about specific things. As I understand it, a resume can be seen as a specific kind of CV. What type of CV you use is down to the job you're applying to, the company, the sector, your past skills and experiences, loads of stuff. Choosing the right CV is part of the whole job seeking process. A fantasticly relevent CV can do as much for your chances as its content.

    For those who are curious, I got the job. They wanted me to start on 3/3 in a city a couple of thousand miles from home. I talked them into the 10th instead.

    As usual, Nexxo has the picture with just the right amount of lol, but also makes it fit the topic that the thread is following.

    /OT

    Let us know how you get on!

    And to think, the only reason I haven't applied to Bit in the past is a CV.
