Re: Don't judge your CV by the grammatical errors

"sleek"?

That's not a CV, it's a flyer, and not a very good one at that. If that dropped on to my desk I'd take one look at it and assume it was someone who had a quota to fill and wasn't very confident at typing, or handwriting for that matter. It tells you absolutely nothing other than the applicant thinks he can do "electronics design, tech", and as we all know, it wasn't Jobs who did the (clever) electronics, it was Wozniak.

I suppose you could look at it one of two ways. Either the applicant isn't serious, or companies were so desperate for staff back in the US in 1973 that all you had to do was stick your hand up and say "uuh, yeah, I cun do dat" and you'd be hired.

How things have changed.
