No, really. Your CV really, really stinks. I read these things for a
living and the quality varies a lot more than it should considering
what you are selling.

Over the next few years you are asking to be paid more than the cost of
a Ferrari and the desk space, computer kit and coffee you use over that
time means you cost at least twice what you earn.

Does Ferrari say it makes “reelly good carrrs”? No, it bloody doesn’t.
So why do you spell the name of your degree subject wrong? Why do you
use slightly different fonts in each paragraph that screw with my
ancient pimp’s eyes?
