    I was writing my CV the other day for this job at WHSmith and my friend sent me a copy of his friend's friend's CV. This guy was good, I mean he had great results and acheivements and activities.. etc etc..
    But what got me was his Personal Profile, he wrote 'I approach all my responsibilities with extreme enthusiasm''. Dunno about you but I think this guy went a wee bit over the top...

    Just wondering if anyone else has written a personal profile with something a bit excessive or knows of anyone who has :P:
