Today we received a great anecdote about a CV that someone received. The CV arrived in a big manilla folder covered in stars and glitter, and was accompanied by all their original exam certificates including sporting achievements. The person was swiftly contacted and told to collect their certificates before they were disposed of. Needless to say they didn’t get the job!

Clearly Creative CVs tip: All you need to give an employer is two sides of A4, plus your showreel.
