It is from 1987 and includes my letter to the Independent that triggered my resolve to be a journalist.
The CV was:
- On the cheapest of paper (you can see the print through it)
- Printed on a dot-matrix
- Produced on an Amstrad 1520 (I bought a 1640 when I started work)
- Juvenile, conceited and arrogant
- Successful – I started on Electronics Weekly after sending out just 14 CVs and covering letters (I also had another job offer after I had accepted the EW post)
And I got which and that wrong in huge letters on the front page – oh how I cringe now.
I have scanned it in a as a PDF (about 2.5Mb)
