Moderated CVs/Resumes

After people have written their CV, have it moderated by a disinterested 3rd party to cut out the bullshit.

Most CV's are puffed with bollocks. A group could cut these down to a standard form, stripping out any superflous waffle.

       what if you need to be good at superflous waffle to get the job? I can't think of any but I'm sure there must be some?

       There are companies out there who will take your money to do this for you...see link.   

       Here's a quote from that site:   

       "I'm sorry to write you such a long letter - I had no time to write a short one."

       Ask a friend to check your CV, they are disinterested too...
BartJan, Jan 15 2002
  

       hehe...we once received a CV at my old office which had the name of the business and the street address 2101 Arlington Bull of Art.

       and...on a similar note...saw a classified ad in the Washington Post for a job at a DC think-tank where employee would "work for two novel lariats."
deef, Jan 15 2002
  

       We had a CV at my office where the person trying for the job claimed to be "Well spoken and articulated".

       One way to moderate CVs would be to mount vibration-sensitive transducers near where the CVs are in the axle paths. An increase in vibration likely would indicate that a failure, or change in performance is underway. To moderate this you could have the signals displayed on oscilloscopes and other fancy monitoring equipment mounted in the back seat and invite friends to watch them intently, and give you brief, synthesized responses, including their opinions as to the amont of time until next CV failure--thus moderating the whole affair.

       Or use Birfield-Rzeppa CVs, which are inherently moderated.
angel, Jan 16 2002
  

       Birfield-Rzeppa CVs? What are they?
dare99, Jan 16 2002
  

       Why, it's a Hardy Spicer, of course... Dolomite.
thumbwax, Jan 16 2002
  

       Spicer? I thought those were only for trucks, at least the ones from Dana/GKN. They do transaxle assemblies as well especially for the old Kenworths.
