The Recruitment Company 'cvmoon' Launched Their New Website And Their Logo, Which They Claim Can Be Seen On The Moon

CVMoon.com officially launched their new recruitment service during March 2014 with a little help from the Moon. Their stated "No nonsense, no frills" recruitment service is initially aimed at the UK job market, but with plans to expand into both the US and rest of Europe in the very near future.

with cvmoon's registered trademark logo.
United Kingdom (March 26, 2014) -- The company's name, website and logo, take their inspiration from the Moon, by using existing visible features on the moon's surface which resemble the letters "C" and "V" (from Curriculum Vitae) exploiting the "Pareidolia" effect.

According to Wikipedia, "Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant". A common example of Pareidolia is seeing shapes of animals or other recognizable objects in clouds. The registered trademark logo of cvmoon makes full use of this effect by accentuating the letters "C" and "V" against a recognizable photograph of the full Moon. cvmoon claim that once you have a taken a fresh look at the moon and can make out their logo, you will never be able to see the moon quite the same again!

Several companies have previously expressed an interest in placing their logos on the Moon, some more seriously such as Pizza Hut and others more jovially like Pepsi. There has even been company offering to carve your company's logo on the moon! CVMoon.com believe that they have stolen a march on all of these companies by identifying and using the existing features clearly visible on the moon in their logo which is no t only protected by copyright but also as a registered trademark.

This new recruitment service differentiates itself from the many similar others in this already crowded market place, by the strict adherence to two key fundamental principles -
- "Job Seekers CVs/Resumes should always be freely accessible to every genuine recruiter"
- "No one should have to pay to advertise a genuine job vacancy on the Internet"

Further, cvmoon states that they have adopted a design and implementation philosophy of "KISS" (Keep It Simple, Stupid) and make reference to the following to demonstrate this:
- Absence of unnecessary links, pictures, and other extraneous information.
- Only core functionality is being offered to ensure that navigation through the site is as simple as possible e.g. Jobseekers can upload their CV/Resume and job requirements and/or search the database for current job vacancies and nothing else. Similarly, potential recruiters can search the CV/Resume database for suitable candidates and/or post their job vacancies for jobseekers to view.

UK Budget March 2014 and QROPS for Final Salary Pensions

If you are in a Final Salary scheme you need to act now! Or you may be sorry, as time is running out!

ZURICH, Switzerland (March 26, 2014) -- Given this budget is in the run up to the next election in 2015. As normal it is a sweetener, and lots of smoke and mirrors.

After the smoke has cleared however, if you are in a Final Salary, also known as a Defined Benefit pension scheme. Take note the option to transfer to a QROPS is to be removed.

Combine this with the Government’s announcement that it intends to abolish tax allowances for non UK residents. So pension benefits you take in the UK would be taxed up to the full rate of 50%, on the whole amount. The future looks bleak if you are in a Final Salary scheme but no longer live in the UK.

The pension reforms that were announced are likely to encourage a lot more people to look at QROPS as a very attractive alternative to leaving their pensions in the UK.

Moving your UK pension arrangements to a QROPS if suitable given your own particular circumstances, can only improve your position.

Most importantly, once moved to a QROPS you have control over your money. If left in your UK pension arrangement it is highly likely that additional constraints will be put in place which will adversely affect you.

If you have a UK pension and have left the UK, or are considering a QROPS transfer, contact Waterstone Investment Associates.
