WILL THE planned electronic CV contain "bad" things about me such as a bad reference? Will it not contain my criminal record? Who will control it? Who will update or amend it? Who will decide its format? Who will have access to it? The police, my neighbours? How big and complex a national system will be needed to prevent unauthorised access to it?
If we successfully address all these issues, do we not end up with a CV written by me, in my style, controlled by me on my own computer and used by me at the right time, when I want to apply for jobs - in other words, just what we have now?
