      I have had pretty much no work experience worth mentioning in the last 20 years and I left school with less than dazzling exam results.

      Any suggestions Umm Socky?
      The following statement is completely true

      The previous statement is totally false

        You have to write something impressive on the cv. I promised i'd be posting mine, i'll do that in a bit after editing personal details and you can rip off it if you want- just change the words around :)

          This was my covering letter for my placement CV- Alhamdulillah it worked and all the spare ones, i made paper planes out of them :)


          The covering letter is pretty essential as it is the fiest thing that will grab the focus of your employee- you have to advertise yourself as boldly as possible without 'smothering' them. Ooze self confidence but don't throttle them with it :p

            hey sis

            we were taught a little differently on how to write a cover letter.

            its basically the same as yours with one paragraph on your work & education background, and the last paragraph is you thanking and its closing but for us we have a first paragraph that is an intro kind of just introducing yourself, where you found this position to be available and some general skills that directly relate.

              I guess it can vary but you want to try that bit 'different' but your skills come into the cv, which :insha: i'll post a bit later. You don't want to make the covering letter too too long as it's glanced upon with key words being picked on- it's the CV that gets the attention and i've seen the employers highlighting key words from the cv.

                    *****IMPORTANT*****: Can i please stress again that :insha: feel free to send me your CV's, i don't mind one bit checking them but you must take out your personal details, esp the brothers.

                    i don't want to know your age, your number or where you live.

                    This is irrelevant and i'm not your boss.

                    Please try :insha: to extract personal information before sending me the cv's.

                        Do you have a covering letter with you cv?

                        If yes- then review it :insha: see if you can make it stand out
                        and if no: think about maybe writing one :insha: cuz they do pull the attention of the reader esp if you summarise your skills.
