Awww. You mean it's not real??!!


Yes, let's see where the hook comes. It would be fun to cook up a fake CV. Be sure it's from some nationality that hasn't a prayer of working legally in the UK anyway (USA, probably) and from someone with a CELTA or less. Cool

I applied with a CV of an octogenarian from Louisiana, named Papa Roacher XV, whose experience consisted in teaching his grandson how to swear in Cajun and whose education was achieved through the occupation of a Nazi school during WWII.

They replied, and said that after careful scrutiny, my application had been accepted.

They urged me to reply to their email to confirm, and I did (in Cajun), but they haven't gotten back to me yet. I guess they're wising up and figured out that the CV is a little suspicious.

250? Hmmm. Perhaps you could also do a follow up email to let them know that not just any old slop slapped down on the table will do. We Teflers have Feeding Standards!!
