Reg man the most-flamed recruiter in the UK?

3 Big data security analytics techniques

What sort of techie never writes an email

But Dominic was also accused of letting the cat out of the bag.

Please don't teach bad people to write good CVs #

I like bad CVs. It's so much quicker to bin a CV with spelling mistakes in it, than to invite somebody in for a 45 minute interview before you find out that you don't want to hire them.

I used to be quite lenient about CVs and think that people might be ok – despite a weak CV – as they've worked for good companies. After a lot of wasted interview time, I'm not any more. Good people write good CVs. If you're not genuinely excited about interviewing somebody after reading their two sides of A4 (not more. Ever.) then just don't interview them – it's a waste of your own time.

Thanks for the article though. I particularly enjoyed "You are a waste of space", coming from a recruitment consultant. LinkedIn and a competent HR department for me, please.

And as one AC pointed out, there could be a simple reason for the vast gulf between views.

One perceptive AC suggested there was a worrying split in the El Reg's readership.

Fun exercise: #

Go back through the comments and guess who is an employer and who solely an employee...

Still, perhaps the last work should go to DN4:

"What sort of techie never writes an email... or a report... or a proposal?"

A happy techie.

Well, if Dominic's ears aren't burning yet, they surely will be later this week once readers read his thoughts on interview technique. ®
