Week 11 of The Apprentice highlights CV dos and don'ts

This week's episode of The Apprentice highlighted how not to construct a CV, with some candidates caught out for exaggerating their credentials and others accused of downright lying.

The main culprit was Stuart Baggs, a candidate who described himself as "the brand" throughout the process but was found to have lied about running a "fully licensed" telecoms company when really he only held a permit to provide a phone service through a broadband connection.

As a result, he was berated by Lord Sugar in the boardroom and became the first of the five remaining candidates to be fired.

Jamie was also axed after claiming on his CV that he had "sole responsibility" for securing property deals at his company despite his partner doing some of the work.

Joanna was the final candidate to be fired, with the Lord Sugar deciding that she did not have relevant credentials to be a member of his organisation - something all candidates must bear in mind when applying for a job.

Motivational speaker and seminar leader Gavin Ingham commented: "Check CVs and check credentials. Would you want to be in week 11 of an interview to find out that the whole CV that you based the last 11 weeks on was a fabrication? Err, no? Me neither."
