    What jobs or posts would you like to find, from a politician's CV, that he or she had resigned from (and for what reasons)?

    By specifying "politician" you are defining a type that many despise. Maybe better "person you'd like to see serving in elected office."

    Mine would be an ability to lead in the direction I want the world to go. We can get into that direction if you please. Of course it might sound like something a Miss America candidate would say 🙂 peace, love, understanding, IOW, the real Savior.

    Someone seeking to serve in an elected office is a politician, and I don't see how the CV of someone who is not seeking office matters in the world of politics/politicians. 🙂

    Rather than their promises or policies, I was thinking more in terms of 'items' on their resume ~ by which I mean specific things they have done or experiences they have had.

    Leadership, vision, a keen sense of humor and gravitas.

    The OP is looking for specific items listed on a curriculum vitae ~ like employment or positions held ~ rather than character traits or qualities.

    You're quite welcome for this executive summary which generally appears
    at the top of any professional's "curriculum vitae". Why whine?

    The OP is more interested in curriculum vitae stuff like jobs or travel or other experiences.

    I've had stacks of people's CVs pass through my hands and recruited and appointed countless people, and - let me assure you - stuff about having a sense of humour and vision is mere puff that counts for nothing when written by the candidates themselves.

    This thread seeks actual achievements and positions held that might make for a resume deemed fit for a worthy politician.

    You expect to see an applicant's job history in their CV executive summary?

    Financial sources. All of them.
