    Customise your c.v according to the job your applying for. they tell you what their requirements are in the job add.

    sometimes being too honest about your skills isn't helpful. when i first left university i had rejections from jobs for being to experienced. so pitch the c.v at the level of the job your applying for.

    Get a nice solid C.V and customise it for each job application as needed.

              After days of checking on my CV and getting others to check it i presented a pleasing CV (IMO :p ) to the career manager who has to approve the CV, she dissected it and said it MUST be MAXIMUM two pages. So after a few more days of editing, removing, altering margins, shifting fonts and font sizes. I now have two pages.


              Yet i wonder.... it would have been easier and simpler to squash an elephant on my CV- there is barely any white space left :p

              Right now proceeding to phase two: the covering letter. :insha:

                      If you want you can take a look at mines Fatima? Nick the layout if you like :p

                      Drop me a PM if you want me to send you it
                      You are not aware of the consequences that would result (if you were granted what you desire) because what you seek might be to your detriment. (O soul) be conscious that your Master is more aware about your well-being than you are.

                          The thing about CV's is to make it concise, to the point and hard hitting. Have hard hitting points like PERSONAL DEATAILS....

                          EDUCATION.

                          EMPLOYMENT HISTORY

                          SKILLS AND ABILITIES

                          AND REFEREES.

                          Make it snappy and hard......

                          knock them off their feet :up:

                            I was advised by loads of people about NOT to put referees on your C.V - and about knocking them on their feet, its easy on your interview day dress as a suicide bomber - that will work

                                I think the age you want to look for a job gotta be at least 16 if you are in UK
