    Applying for summer positions at the moment and I'm wondering how I should tailor my CV for these? I have worked in retail in the past - should I bother mentioning these positions or should I focus more on the academic side?... although the application has to include a list of uni modules taken anyway so there's no need to include that.

    Anyone's experiences would be greatly appreciated!

    Including the retail jobs will give you the chance to talk about the transferrable skills that you (hopefully) have, which may include leadership, teamwork, communication, problem solving, customer service....
