1. Interesting video.  Completely agree that resumes are designed to get interviews and not jobs.  Something I talk about a lot both on my videos and to candidates in my day to day job as a recruiter.  If you can present content that shows what you bring to the table that benefits the employer based on the needs they have mentioned in the job ad, you are off to a great start!

  2. Jobcentre is crap- I too have lots of experience, you get messed about a lot, put on shitty training centres and everyone gets bored like hell, it's all a rat race, you might have a great CV but it won't necessarily nail that perfect job- oh yeah and when you are Asian you don't normally get the job it's the English person that gets it- harsh but true.

  3. CV is not protected by data protection law, so it's not a good idea to put 3rd parties there. People usually write "references available upon request". Anyone can be given as your references – it's up to the other party to decided if those references are good enough. First get the interview, and then worry about references and other trivia.

  4. Thanks for this video. I am new to the UK. Is it normal here to provide references in your CV? If so, how do you think I should find references? My only contacts in the UK are family, and I understand you shouldn't put family as references. Would it be acceptable to put email addresses of friends/business contacts in the US? Or would that not look good?

  5. Hi, Kamil! First of all, great video! I really liked all of your tips. I noticed on your CV that you have a profile section. Is this the same section as where you write your objective and where you explain, in short detail, why you qualify for the position? Thanks again for the reply!
