So you wanna job? Do you really want a job?

It's struck me on reading thread after thread on here that this has to be the best platform to sell yourself to prospective employers. So you can talk the talk, but can you really walk the walk? why not add a short vid with your thread showing us what you can do, how you roll? stand out from the crowd, be noticed, make me want to take you on. I personally don't give a jot for CVs (they tend to be a little liberal with the truth anyway) and I don't care if Bert says your the dogs danglies, show us that you can do the job!! The forum is there, the opportunity is there, just do it.

Good point Andy, yes I totally agree, a video cv is the way forward in this game. Nothing like what it says on the tin!

Re: So you wanna job? Do you really want a job?

Tis forum has given me a medium with which to sell myself for years and now represents a significant thing, god bless the talk.

\my advice has always been to others to just dig deep and get stuck in, theres no wrong, and we are all on a learning journey, and you never know whos reading, you would be surprised.

I need to take more pictures! My problem is I'm always up the tree, phone in the truck so I don't break it!

Point well made Andy, and duly noted

Nah, video is soooo old hat.

What you really need is to star in your very own documentary

They didn't even get any where near the full-on fungal frenzy that day


You should have seen the poor lad from Lonely Planet, bet he never even wants to see another fung in his life
