    I'm applying for some new jobs but my CV is a bit bare. You have the standard Hobbies and Interests bit but seriously...I do nothing! Lol.
    What can I write on my CV and covering letter to make them think, she's nice and a hard worker without seeming like I'm begging..

    Job is a PRISON LAW CLERK. Really want to get into law working wise not just the academic bit I've been doing for the past 5 years.

    All help gratefully received.

    Love Em xx

    For a clerk you probably need experience in microsoft word/excel etc.

    Help with your CV This website really helped me when I rewrote my CV :)

    I'm not bad at making something out of nothing, lol! I used to be a recruitment manager & do family cv's/job applications & help staff out with promotion stuff - as long as they've done the basics & given me something to work with, lol!! Have you had any previous jobs, even part time? Ever do any voluntary work or where you involved in any groups at school/uni you could bring some stuff out from? You need things that can illustrate your skills - you must be computer literate to be on the forum - how much can you do/anything you've done on it to show off your skills? If you've had any other jobs, use that to say what you were responsible for etc. Happy to look over something for you if you want me to. :)

    Thank you :) Well I've done all the law courses going, degree masters and one that costs £10k for one year which you need to do if you want to be a solicitor!:eek:
    I know computers inside out so thats ok.
    I did have a mentor at the college of law who suggested a short profile at the top of my cv but dunnoh what to put to make it different from the typical im hardworking, on time blah blah blah.
    Would like to send u my cv at some point to see if u think it read wells and its seriously presented. Dont really have anyone to show it to so with someone like you dealing with stuff like this it would be a great insight :)
