The other half is wanting to move from her current employer as they are ripping the p*ss. Does anyone have a CV they could email me showing how to give the best type of info for objectives, experience, etc. I really am snookered for CVs as i've been in the MOD all my working life so never needed to fill one out, any help greatly appreciated. Email ryangallagher@aol.com if you have an example that i could use for these paragraphs. Cheers Ryan

I haven't got any templates but I do get to see a lot of CV's when interviewing new engineers.The ones that get my attention are the ones that manage to outline basic experience and qualifications on the first page. It should certainly not extend much beyond 3 A4 pages in total.

Shortish, things like liking challenges and enjoying working under pressure. Just make sure that it's quite vague.At one particular Interview session we actually made a decision to employ anyone that honestly described their interests and hobbies as drinking, smoking and shagging" we were even going to allow more PC versions of this theme."

That particular torque wrench retails @

I don't work for an engineering company for nothing you know, we have torque wrenches going in every month, they wont notice an extra one.

Ryan Gallagher
09-10-02, 20:10
yep but each wrench should have a serial number so they will notice an extra one...Remember i AM an engineer who's seen people half inched (alledgedly) torque wrenches for home use and bring them in yearly for calibration!!!!

Xavier Breath
09-10-02, 20:14
Yeah but I'm the one who collects them from the guys sends them off and then gets them back

If I used them I wouldYou're confusing my company with a large multi-national thingyI look after 23 engineers spread throughout the country. If they need anything, I arrange it, if their nose wants wiping, I do it.I'm godfather to 2 of their kids and I've even been to one of their funerals.So you could say that I do most things to keep them running, I've even been known to buy them beer.
