    "Records are required for at least 5 year(s) with a maximum of 14 day(s) between entries"

    Is it really that hard to understand? your first entry is 2007, which is only 4 years ago. They are asking for 5. Did you really only work at dorothy perkins for one day?

    So, you read "a maximum of 14 days between entries" and then find it confusing that you can't have a closing date of 12 Sep 07 and the next opening date being 19 Dec 08?

    Added to the already pointed out fact that 2007 is only 4 years ago...

    Why have you done it that way round? on any application form you put your most recent thing at the top.

    You'll have to put something in between your jobs. So if you were in school between 12 September 2007 and the 19th December 2008, just put in "attending school" or whatever you were doing in that time.

    You've still got enormous gaps between things. Is it such a hard concept to grab?

    Look at your most recent two jobs. TK Maxx until 23 Dec 10 and then Primark starting on 26 June 11. What happened in between? You've got 8 months where you didn't exist.

    You need to state what you were doing in those gaps. You can't just not exist.

    help!!
    1 March 2007 and 20 September 2007 were both part-time jobs? I see a gap from 2009 October to 2010 September, what have you been doing in the mean time? Don't forget everything have to be in chronological order beginning with the most recent and ending with least recent, explaining all the gaps. It's complicated because of the dates in the table.

    See if you's can't fill out a simple thing like 5 year history then I don't think sorting mail out is for you.

    Dates have to be from date of application to the same date 5 years ago in 2008.

    No gaps can be more than 14 days
