ImageIn his article, Top 10 alternative hang-outs in Zagreb author James Hopkin (“Winter Under Water” and “Even the Crows Say Krakow”) sums up the most interesting sights of this middle European city. Giving special attention to literary hot-spots like the ex-bookstore and cultural venue – Booksa – Hopkin also recommends Istros’ own Robert Perisic, and his best-selling novel Our Man in Iraq:

“…or try Limb Caffe Bar (Plitvica 14), with its 3D mural of buxom wenches, and heated conservatory (these drinking porches are very popular in Zagreb where a third of the population are from Dalmatia, so they like to be outside, even in winter). Limb is frequented by best-selling author, Robert Perisic, whose novel, Our Man in Iraq (Istros Books) is a must-read for your trip, as it brilliantly captures modern-day Zagreb…”

Lets hope that visitors to the city take up his advice and give this hilarious novel…

Most Creative C.V.’s of 2012

It takes a lot these days to have your curriculum vitae or résumé noticed.

Linkedin, the popular professional network site claims “187 million members” according to a company press release.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Starbucks received 7.6 million applications for 65,000 openings; an average of 115 submissions per job. In a separate blog post, the WSJ revealed that in the fourth quarter of 2011 the “number of applications submitted per job opening fell to 118 … from 187 during the same period in 2010”.

The best way to get noticed is of course through personal connections. There is nothing more effective than meeting the right manager  or recruiter at the right time (just before they are planning to open a position).

Another way, specifically in the creative industries, is to publish a creative c.v. and post it on pinterest. Here is a link to my board with my favourite creative c.v.’s.. If you would like to post yours, just let me know and I will publish it.
