Book Description

Meet Valentin Gardemeister: A 48-year-old Finn who’s spent his entire working life as a wage-slave at the factory on the outskirts of his isolated, snow-ridden hometown.

When his line manager is replaced by a younger, more demanding recruit, he begins to experience a latent professional ambition, which drives him to seek employment elsewhere – and quite some way above his station!

This book contains the totality of the job applications he made during this period; all of which were genuinely sent to actual employers.

Be prepared for plenty of spontaneous vocal emissions as this most unlikely of candidates applies for everything from Lecturer in English Linguistics at Sussex University, to the Chief Pilot of a regional Chinese airline – and gets a few interesting responses in the process!

Downloaded as a Kindle and a great book. I couldn't put it down. He has such a fantastic sense of humour. This could easily form the basis for a series or, at least, a sequel. Can't wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny 8 Mar. 2013

Very cleverly put together and humorous with it, especially the contribution from the University of Sussex. A quick read but if it had been any longer it might have become a tad tedious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great British humour! 13 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the ideal read for someone in hospital (unless they just been stitched up!), recouperating or just generally feeling sorry for themselves - a great pick-me-up! No marks for the Met. Police but full marks for Sussex University...Well worth the outlay.

5.0 out of 5 stars I liked this! 21 Aug. 2013
By C Steed
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I work in HR - I would love it if we had a few more people showing some personality! - of course this is way over the top - and I would love to have seen the recipients of his 'appliances' faces!
Very funny - few enough that you don't get bored - and the back history of his wife (who he wants to stay in Finland) and his friend Vladmir .... very good!
Was a quick read and I would say definitely worth a look.
Well done and good luck with the job hunting :)

4.0 out of 5 stars I can't believe this exists!!!!! 18 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Is this for real? It takes some balls if it is! A very quick read but I would recommend it to anyone. It is laugh out loud funny! Something that I can find challenging to do. The photographs and drawings really set me off!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing, but not side-splitting 24 May 2013
By SunnyB
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an amusing book, raising the odd chuckle as opposed to real guffaws. All very tongue in cheek and I particularly liked the ones, where the Company applied to made witty responses. In fact a couple of the responses were especially amusing.

This is definitely a bit of frippery, but overall I think worth a read.
