Thank you... I can include this in my debate on Thursday!

Know anything much about CVs? I've been given the chance to apply for a really super cool job and I need to condense my CV! I've no idea what I could put under 'professional accomplishments' ... what does it mean?!

Hello you :)

Hope you're feeling a bit better? (puts on worried expression...)

Unfortunately I'm probably the last person to ask about CVs. I've never written one in my life and jobs come up so rarely where I work that I don't get a chance to look at other peoples all that often either. In any case with us we don't really pay too much attention to the CV. We look at the person themself and see how we get on with them in the interview (in the rare occurence that we don't already know them beforehand...)

Sorry :(

hmm... you only writing notes for it or reading from something you've written? If you've written it up I wouldn't mind have a gander of it at sometime if possible?

Good luck with CV.
Good luck with the debate.
And Good Luck at the Doc's!

yes, very busy! (almost wrote busty!) but will decide, and let you know :)

Ooh, tell you something. Am also writing an essay on Atlantis. Got any theories on that?

Essay title is Atlantis: SciFi or Sure Thing? ;)

It's for a philosophy of science module...

Atlantis, hey. You could say I have a few theories on that one.

When's the module due? I can try and search out a few books for you from downstairs (in amonsgt my clutter :p) and if we meet up before you need to finish it I can spout away merrily and hope not to send you to sleep...:p

It's due on Thursday :p

I've nearly finished it, but any extra ideas would be gratefully received.

So far I'm referencing CS Lewis, Tolkien, Stargate: Atlantis, the Atlantis Disney film, Plato and a couple of other books ;)

But we can always have a nice chat about it another day! :D

hmm, well being due on Thursday my books won't be that much help :(

That's another essay I won't mind reading, although it sounds like you're looking at it more from themes in literature/entertainment than from the scientific/folklore angle?

Certainly a subject I don't mind talking about whenever though :D

Take care, I've got to get ready and go to the pre-Sisters of Mercy gig drink-up! Yay!! :D

literature entertainment yes, because that's what I know about but there *should* be more science in there... hmm, any pointers would be much appreciated :p

ooh, gig! :D

Am pretty good with CVs, if you still help. Mail to sadhbh @ gmail dot com

Professional Accomplishments include prizes or awards, courses undertaken, significant promotions or even just things you have done you can boast about.

That's what I figured in the end, thank you :) I actually sent it in yesterday, but if I ever need help again I'll keep you in mind. Thanks very much! :)
