When I edit my CV on careers my completion status says "135% complete (this one goes to 11)". What does that mean?

That's a reference to Marshall amplifiers that go up to 11 instead of 10 (Get it? They're one louder!). The movie This is Spinal Tap has a bit on this.

Marshall implemented the "one more louder" Gain knob on some models as a tribute to Tap, if I recall correctly... – Mike Woodhouse Nov 10 '09 at 21:28

As well as being a reference to This is Spinal Tap, it also means that because if you fill out more than 100% of the form.

With your details, one employer and one education section fully you'll have completed 100% of the form. Therefore, as you'll probably have several employers and education sections you can fill out the form to over 100%, as you have already done.

I added in a direct link to the YouTube video in the UI.


The numbers all go eleven. Right across the board. Eleven ... eleven ... eleven ...

Well, it's one louder, isn't it?
