Vivre et travailler à Londres… le tout en anglais (pour une fois)

I might just be very unlucky… here is my story.

A couple of days ago, I spent 2 hours on to update my CV. Everything went fine except at the end where the system couldn’t let me add a line to my education. But I didn’t pay much attention to that and saved the whole thing and logged out.

Today I received phone calls from recruiters who saw my resume on Monster. Good sign, my update worked. So back home, I log on Monster to check what I wrote and… surprise, the whole update is gone. Only my old cv is remaining!!! No need to say that I am very very very upset.

But then I am very confused… what cv do the recruiters actually see? No way for me to check apart from asking them. That is rubbish. Right now I hate Monster. Any moral support from anyone? Any similar experience?

By the way, I might just explained why is worth spending my time. Unlike the french version, recruiters actually do search and look at CVs on No need to apply to any jobs. Some agencies will eventually contact you if they feel your profile matches their opportunities. Although saying that, it happened I got contacted for job I wasn’t interested in or which required more experienced applicants. Nevertheless, that is a good start… a single effort which can really pay off!

Salut miss ! Je peux peut-etre te rendre service, puisque je bosse dans le recrutement… donc j’utilise Monster a titre professionnel. Envoie-moi un mail en me rappelant ton nom, et je ferai une petite recherche pour te dire ce qui ressort quand on regarde ton CV !

J’ai rencontré exactement le même problème que toi : impossible de mettre mon CV à jour sur Monster. Après moultes vaines tentatives, j’ai abandonné Monster.

En revanche, est un super site d’emploi. Je recevais des appels tous les jours! et c’est grâce à Reed que j’ai trouvé mon job actuel 🙂

Good luck pour tes recherches!
