I've noticed that the job postings in Career Overflow range from formal and factual to casual and flippant. This along with the cv field prompts makes me think I can loosen up a tiny bit on my CV. However, I don't want to be so flippant that I turn off possible employers. Are there any sample CVs available that I can view to show me what levels of "cool" are acceptable? I realize this is a subjective thing and varies from employer to employer. But I surely hope that employers who post jobs asking for ninjas and rock stars don't frown on CVs that use the same type of language!
Just search :
CV -"file -your" site:careers.stackoverflow.com
It shows all CVs that have ever been linked to (No other search term necessary).
You can do a google search for careers to see what different CVs are out there.
site:careers.stackoverflow.com/ john site:careers.stackoverflow.com/ mike site:careers.stackoverflow.com/ [Basically any common name]
Hi Carrie, we do have a sample CV here: http://careers.stackoverflow.com/community
I agree with the above that looking at others' CV is a good way to go as well.
