Comoto CV Funny Friday: Honesty is a virtue but this CV is…

Honesty is the virtue of refusing to fake the facts of reality – Comoto CV Funny Friday

In some of our Comoto CV Funny Friday posts, we state the importance of not lying and being honest all the way through the recruitment process. We still think this, and we have seen a lot of CVs or Resumes and but the ad below is taking the first-prize in honesty. But again how would you explain a 10 year gap in your CV, that would be a bit hard to explain and still being honest.

It is admirable the honesty and the straight forward way to explain this, and we really hope that the person behind this ad, has found a position so that he/she can take care of his family and get a good life.
