To thine own self be true

Delusions of adequacy

Posted by Polonius on 15 December, 2008

At my place of work we’ve all recently been asked to update our CVs (That’s curricula vitarum or, for those of you across the pond, résumés.) I don’t know whether to be amused or horrified at those people who consider themselves “highly competent” in MS Word, yet think multiple blank paragraphs are a sensible way to force a page break, when what they should be using is one of “keep with next”, “keep lines together” or “widow/orphan control”. Even barely competent users could insert a proper page break.
