    Default Getting a job at Citroen

    I had to send in a duplicate application to get a job making retro cars at Citroen.

    They needed 2 CVs.

    That is truly terrible. Another in the category of "why didn't I think of that...."!

    No, no. This should remain here as a warning to all.
    The measure of your character isn't what you do when people are watching- it's what you do when they aren't watching.

    When I applied a few years back, as well as 2CVs they also wanted me to provide a proof of ID

    Once you get your foot in the door, you might gain some Traction. Is your Visa in order? If it isn't you might end up in the gutter without a job, without a home and no ZX.

    I ran some interviews for job applicants recently. I was expecting to C 8, but three called my assistant Rosalie and advised they could not attend, so in the end I could only C 5.

    C1 of those 5 was me as I just had my job AX'd. Unfortunately I was Unsuccessful cause I was late due to trafic.

    Good news though as I'm now a partner master tech at a Peugeot / renault LCV place.

    I had to fly to Germany for an interview once. The flights were delayed due to weather and I couldn't get to my destination directly. I landed at Frankfurt and work had organised a car for me to the destination. I grabbed my bags, ran out to meet the car and driver, jumped in and said Berlin! GO!!!

    And I'm sure you had to say that in English to the driver, because let's face it German is such a bare linguo !

    I'd have to dabble into Sado-Masochism (SM) to say something like this!
