  1. HELP: what about addressing issues, like a 10-year gap of not working like raising a family or taking care of elderly family member, or you have been self-employed 20 years or an independent contractor your entire life, and you have all the skills mastered to the job through EXPERIENCE, but no education ?

  2. What the fuck do you mean by adding flavor and color to the CV? WTF MAN? COULD YOU SAY ANYTHING MORE VAGUE AND GENERIC THAN THIS BULLSHIT? OH WAIT I FORGOT "SELL YOUSELF", YEAH THATS ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE GENERIC BULLSHIT BASELESS ENGLISH PHRASES THAT YOU JACKASSES UTTER. I MEAN SERIOUSLY? ADDING COLOR AND FLAVOR? PLUS I HAVE SEEN MANY EXAMPLE COVER LETTERS BUT MY QUESTION IS….WHO THE FUCK!!! HAS TIME TO READ SO MANY LETTERS IN A DAY. SO BASICALLY IN CV YOU CAN MUST BE CLEAR AND CONCISE AND ON COVER LETTER YOU CAN GO ALL OUT PARAGRAPH THE SHIT OUT OF THE PAPER CUZ FUCKLOGIC!!! FUCK YOU RATHER GO FREELANCING. GODAMNIT DID YOU HR PEOPLE EVER IN YOUR LIVES ASK YOUSELF IF WHETHER YOU EVEN MAKE SENSE????

  3. I watch all of your videos Mr Martin and I can't tell you how much insight you have provided me. I take a look at my past CVs, cover letters and think "What the hell was i thinking? They're rubbish". Not anymore, although I do not have a job yet and have been unemployed for 4 years, I am using your techniques now to get my career in a customer service/administration role.

    I will continually refer to your videos when applying for jobs and hope I am employed soon. Thank you.

  4. Also, Thank you very much for taking the time to create and upload this series of videos – certainly eye opening, and your offer of an open line of communication via email is rather enticing – not to mention greatly appreciated. Much love!

  5. I wish i watched this prior to writing my cover letter for a vacant position last night….top notch stuff, some of which i hadn't even considered. I also watched the 'follow up' video…quick question, if it is an online only application (as so many are) is it still desirable to call the HR manager? They don't really give much away in terms of contact details..will an email suffice? Or would that be seen as a lazy cop out?
