          Sure :insha: :)

          Basically i've always liked the english langauge and so love essay writing and so on- Allah knows why i picked a comp sci degree but i like stuff to do with this. I wrote my CV a few years back to try and get a summer job and expanded on it every year.

          Attended loads of agencies & fairs to gain more knowledge. I worked for a company where the employees range in hundreds of thousands if not millions, i've had access to many CV's from others and read them too- attended meetings and actual interview to see how the whole stage is played out amongst other stuff.

          Yet it it's about you generally- how you display yourself, you don't even need all the stuff they ask in a job desc but it's how you present yourself which counts- they look at your style, technique.

          Having good morals is belive it or not important- honesty, trust, hard working they are noted and you don't have to write this down for them to pick up on it.

            Re: Writing the killer CV

            Here is a rough outline of what my CV looked like when I was still at University, and applying for arty farty type jobs lol :p Keep in mind its an old layout so you can edit it to make it more up to date. Also if you are into IT etc, you should have a section regarding programs you know, applications etc. Personal profile is not that important on a technical CV. Always tailor your CV to suit the vacancy you are applying for and to emphasize your best qualities :up:

            Keep your CV clean, simple and to the point; don't beat around the bush with your words :up:

            What does 'freedom' mean?

            Does the eagle want to swim in the sea,
            Restricted by the sky?

            Does the fish want to dance on the wind,
            Not enough river to explore?

            Yet the sky is freedom for the bird
            but death for the fish,

            The sea is wide for the fish
            but will engulf the bird.

            We ask for freedom but freedom to do what?
            We can only express our nature as it was created.

            The prayer mat of the earth is freedom,
            freedom from slavery to other than the One,
            Who offers an shoreless ocean of love to swim in
            and a horizon that extends to the next life,
            Yet we chose the prison and call it freedom.

                  this is a really good guideline for a starter CV

                  http://www.careers.brad.ac.uk/studen...ideline_CV.pdf

                  some things are optional, so make note, and also with regards to GCSE's, you only need to list a few, like the first 3 best ones or something

                  do you have a deadline for your CV?

                              No DOB should be on CV.

                              Also would be nice for a sample good cv to bs attached.

                              Others can google best cv.

                              Employers are not allowed to discriminate, but putting these details down saves them having to ask you. If you are not a citizen of the country in which you are applying special arrangements may have to be made.

                                A cover letter should be attached with cv.

                                Cv and cover letter should be tailored for each job.

                                Good examples of cover letters can be found on net google best cover letters.

                                You can make books on cv from library and waterstone careers sections (21days return policy they have).

                                Whimsith have 30 days return policy but may not have as many books on cv/cover letters as waterstones.

                                So may be better to go for waterstones.
