    Well, unfortunately for you Applewhaite I got here first. And I'm a complete pedant :)

    I feel compelled to point out that it is 'flaws' in the CV, and not floors :) \pedant

    I've attached a track-changed amend to your Word document.

    Whilst the overall spelling and grammar is fine, the CV (in my opinion) just lacks... oomph. It's all well and good describing the jobs you did throughout college and so forth, but you don't highlight any customer service experience (exposure to work on the telephone, client-facing roles, and so forth) aside from saying you did 'customer service'.

    I'm not going to say my own CV is fantastic (because quite frankly, it's crap lol) but I try to mix job experience with saying how the experience has enhanced my service offer.

    I've attached the amend, and my own shabby CV for paltry comparison.

    Ah.
    Rugby school for girls...

    I seem to remember my all-boys school beating you at rugby, which is ironic.
    Don't recall you from the shower afterwards though.

    Sorry, off topic there...

    Sorry, back to topic...

    Try and be professional in whatever you do (hey, none of us are perfect, ahem).
    I, as in 'me' is 'I', not 'i'.

    'I doesn't have to...' is 'I don't have to...'

    'gud' is actually 'good'

    Please don't take this as abuse or pedantry, but you've asked for feedback and we're all willing to help.

    :D

    Hi Applewhaite.

    Haven't forgotten you - been on mad shifts. Will have a look through your amended CV when I get a spare window of time, and send you back an amended doc if it needs it :)
