Hi Peter,

Over two hundred applicants for a position! Unbelievable! And I'm also impressed by the fact that so many applicants are just for joking, not serious ones.... Does this kind of things really happen frequently in job hunting? I wonder...

Hi, Tomoaki!
I think that people sending a CV in comic font or in green ink are strange persons, may be, over artistic, or they might not be familiar with business style. I cannot imagine anyone writing a 10 pages CV, but even two full pages are too much, don't you think? Sometimes people even mention their middle school achivements, which I think is excessive.

I agree with Laris Fdz

Thanks for the video
