Another CV dropped through our letterbox this morning, accompanied by a beautifully written diatribe (stretching to two sides of A4) about how suitable the applicant was for a position in our company.
We get a lot of these, together with requests for work experience, and generally speaking we do take the time to answer them, offering advice and other avenues to explore.
It leads us to ask what are the three things that make a good eventer?
1. Flexibility – it’s not a 9-5 or ‘not in my job description’ type of profession.
2. Versatile – the ability to handle a diva and then five minutes later be clipping together thousands of VIP badges.
3. Relaxed – being able to take last minute changes, up to and beyond deadline without having a nervous breakdown is essential.
