It is Summer which is actually quite dull if you're a headhunter, even if the markets are somewhat interesting at present.
So to liven things up, we're having a competition, to give us (and you) something to do.
What is the Prize ?
50" Plasma TV-HD Ready-Freeview-Inc speakers & stand, with at home warranty) with AMBILIGHT2
Made by Phillips : 50PF9631D
How do I win ?
You get a friend to send their CV to us. If we get him a job in the next year, you win the prize. They must put your name on the email he sends the CV in for you to win.
Where do CVs have to be sent ?
Please type that correctly, remember the Dots.
Can I enter more than once ?
Why can’t I send you my CV as an entry ?
It’s against the law.
Apparently we are not allowed to reward people for taking a job, and we are good honest law abiding pimps. We are however having lunch with our reassuringly expensive employment lawyer on this one. You are of course quite free to send us your CV, just not part of the competition.
Can I enter from outside the UK ?
You especially can’t enter from the USA, or any other country where the laws on competitions were written by the Mafia or EU. The gear may not work where you are, and the idea of trying to ship large fragile electronics around the world makes us feel physically sick.
Can I send the CV of someone else ?
They have to be OK about this, and the best way to make sure is that they send in their CV.
Why aren’t you using the P&D Email ?
We are using GMail as a trusted 3rd party for working out what was sent and when.
Why can’t we have joint entries ?
We see pain for us in trying to split up prizes. What you do with it once you’ve won is entirely up to you.
Can I enter my friend, and have him enter me ?
Because we don’t really care what you do with the prize once you’ve won.
How do I know he’s entered ?
You will get an email from us, saying so. If you don’t then the CV didn’t reach us.
What if P&D already have their CV ?
Then your entry does not count.
What if they forget to list me as their “referrer” ?
A world of pain awaits us if we try and do backdating, so we’re not going to allow it at all, under any circumstances. Don’t ask, don’t even think about it. Stop it, I heard that thought.
What’s this stuff about “substitute prizes” ?
Consumer electronics evolve quickly, so by the time you’ve won, something better may be available, or we can’t get the exact model offered. But we are not going to push some random piece of rubbish on you. If we can’t get the model, then you can choose anything you like at all from the current Richer Sounds catalogue to the same value.
How the hell do I install a giant screen in my home ?
We did have the idea of presenting the prizes live in a bar. But the boxes for these things have dire warnings that they will break your back if you lift them, the idea got scrubbed. So we will pay for it to be delivered, and someone to put it on whatever wall can take it’s weight. If you prefer, you can have a decent quality stand instead.
What is Ambilight2 ? How is it better than Ambilight 1 ? , and why isn’t it Ambilight3 ?
No one knows, stop making trouble.
Can I win more than one Prize ?
We actively want people to win these prizes.
Will you announce that I’ve won ?
If you give us explicit permission, then we will let people know, but the default is complete anonymity.
Why is the limit one year ?
We don’t want to maintain the lists, etc until the end of time. We picked a year because it sounded reasonable, and beyond this age, a CV may be badly out of date.
Can I change who referred me ?
Again this is to avoid hassle for us.
When does the competition end ?
October 27th 2007.
