Valdi applying for head of tourism

So, when you just are about to launch a giant project as a CEO and selling thousands of computers worldwide, what is the best thing to do?
Apply for a job opening for head of tourism at a Swedish county of course!

This is at least what Valdi did in the beginning of July according to the local newspaper Blekinge Läns Tiding. The article goes on about the buzz on Medison and so on, but nothing new. Someone actually posted his full application in the comments on this site. The CV is public because it's sent to a official county address, and can be handed out per request by anyone.
You can read the CV your self here:

One of the most interesting parts is: "CEO & President of Medison Consulting. At the moment introducing a new laptop brand on the world market, Medison Celebrity. Prospecting sales of 200.000 laptops per month world wide."
Valdi previously said that the reason that their site is badly updated, has wrong information and that the computers were late was because of the giant response on their project. The orders that they have received suddenly seems like a pretty small number if you compare them to 200 000 computers per month, why should he then be surprised?
I guess he just misquoted him self in the CV...

Same place the iMac colors came from. I bet his colors expertize could be helpful in tourism though.

What I find interesting in the CV was that he seemed to be lecturing at a university for years before he went on a teacher training course and that he had a summer job driving trucks at Huskvarna for the whole time that he was head of marketing for a fast food joint.

The whole CV smells of shabby fabrication!

Guys, could somebody with Access to Ratsit pop off a search, i dont remember how far back it dates, and i cant be bothered to go to the tax authorities, they have put up photos of me in the lobby :-)

(For non-swedes, any tax/income information is public, ie. anyone can check it out)

Tommy, when you say burden, what kind of burden do we suspect this is. Is he just super naive, or is this a mental condition developed over the years...

I wish I could ask the guy, fair and square, when any of this started seeming a great idea, and why.

He is claiming to have designed the IKEA Mammut wardrobe. Didnt he earlier claim to have desinged the Mammut table?

The Mammut wardrobe is designed by Kjelstrup and Östgaard.

Yes, you're right. Does it matter though he could've written he designed the Statue of Liberty.

Crossposting information from the "joke movie" thread:

- Valdi is truthful about his academic qualifications. He has 376 credits (new hp system, 60 credits / year) at Jkpg Univ.

- Contrary to his claimed work experience, he has never been employed by Erik Dahlbergsgymnasiet, according to their administrators.

- Taxed income from employment for the years 1989-1995: 0 kr, 28200 kr, 27600 kr, 22300 kr, 34800 kr, 51100 kr. Employer information is not available from the tax authority.

- McDonald's does not have a corporate office (for marketing) in Jönköping, but were happy to direct me to one of the four franchise restaurants in the city.

He never completed his educations.

Cause in Sweden we have doctors who drive taxis, engineers who clean the office and business controller who works as clerks in Abdullahs supermarket. That's why... /old friend of Valdi

He probably told his friends about the El Maco burger when it came out. That is truthfully marketing for McDonalds. This was before inventing the iPod ten years before Apple come to think about it.
