My Unbelievable yet Real Employment CV 

Because everyone I encounter wonders why I can empathise with most work situations and it seems that I’ve done every job under the Sun, I’ve compiled a full(ish) list of every type of job I’ve been employed to do.

This spans around 21 years of my life, there’s been a fair few ‘one offs’ and temporary positions.
I’ve also spent a lot of my adult life having a day job and some kind of freelance/hobby type job, mainly because I get to channel some creative energy that way.
This is definitely not the CV I talk to prospective employers about but they get the picture eventually.
My excuse? I only really discovered what I wanted to do a couple years ago… so there!
