The inboxes of firms around the city are being flooded with the hopes and dreams of aspiring young professionals competing for their big break in the corporate world. In a bid to create a competitive edge, Nathan Moss (22) has exercised a little bit of creative license while polishing up his CV.
‘Yeah look, I was playing fast and loose with a few of the terms in there,' Nathan, or sometimes 'Nath,' has told The Obiter.
‘Extensive experience in the Microsoft Office Suite is a bit of a stretch, I’m alright at Word. God help me if they ask me to touch Excel’.
As Mr Moss’ application slid into the inboxes of Human Resources departments all down Eagle Street there was collective amusement at the irony of some of the bold claims.
‘Dedicated to his studies?’ scoffed Tanya Maxwell (People & Culture). ‘He has barely scraped a 5 since his second year.’
The Obiter caught up with one of Mossy’s mates to discuss the rest of his résumé over a beer.
‘Resilient and adaptable? You’ve got to be kidding, I reckon he leaves the group chat any time one of us brings up his strike rate on the pull.’ Laughs Jonesy [sic], who has also been questionably listed as Nathan’s former manager despite the two of them still studying together.
‘Yea- yea alright, it doesn’t look great I know. Might have to just rely on my white male privilege to get me across the line.’
We wish Nathan all the best. But shit, Jonesy seemed like a bit of a prat.
