    I'm just wondering if anyone can confirm if I am right on this one. Now usually the applications I have made so far have either been totally online, or I have filled in an application form. However, I've been searching the job seekers website and noticed that a vacancy has come up for an XMAS temp at a store I'd like to work at if I got the chance.

    Now the advertisement tells you about the job, and that you need to be flexible between monday to sunday - which I am. And all it says you need to do is send a CV/written application to the store manager, at this address. No more, no less.

    So basically is this just asking for a covering letter which outlines why you want the job, and why you think you're the best person for it; and then my CV attached? Or will it want what days and hours I am available?

    The only reason I'm asking is because it is vague, and I haven't applied for a job yet that has asked for this type of application. I guess I could ring them, but just wondering if anyone has applied for a job asking for the same thing, and what they sent in.


    If the advert is vague I'd personally say there is no reason you couldn't ring them or contact them in another way and ask for more details. It already shows your committed to getting things right, rather than just wing it and send in what you *think* is right. x
