This is the best CV/resume I've ever seen

Too many candidates refuse to trip the light-fantastic and shrivel in a sea of mediocrity. I wish more candidates had the will, humour and guts to try something different

Appreciating your stance on this candidate and the fact that you were so moved by the experience of reviewing her "CV/resume" -- I get that.  But for you to say it's best you've ever seen simply tells me -- you need to get out more.  I say this not as a knock on this candidate but rather a comment on what you've been exposed to relative to CVs & resumes.

You may be right Valentino. We go to bed very early in Europe.

I like you Martin.

You remind me, in this instance, of the many times I used glowing remarks about candidates I've recommended only to be challenged by hiring managers who have a less than glowing opinion.  What can I say other than, "It goes with the job".

What is particularly good about you is your passion.  Passion in a recruiter, and learning as you go, goes a long way in this business and you have that Martin.  Good to know you.

Thank you Valentino. I learn as I go. I apply what I like and ignore what doesn't fit my twisted view of the world.

Good to know you too.

ABC. I apologise. I missed your comment above. Point well made.

This candidate had real job options because of this video and is now in a job she loves.

The video worked. I can't add any further value.
