    I had a part time job during my A levels which I now go back to just for the holidays. How do I put the dates I worked there on my CV? Do I list them as May 2007-Sept 2008, Dec 2008-Jan 2009, Apr 2009-May 2009 ect. which would take up a lot of room, or do I put as 2007-2011 which wouldn't strictly be true as I officially quit at the beginning of each term?

    Also, I have to email my CV and a cover letter to someone. What do I put in the body of the email and how do I start and finish it? Do I start with "Dear Ms. ..." and end with "Yours Sincerely" as though it is a letter or is there some other way of doing emails?

    Thank you to anyone who can help.

    I'd put the dates together, just as long as you mention it is a part time job there is no problem in it. And yes, I would still write emails very formal.

    Put 2007-11 and then under a bullet point put something constructive like Consistently re-hired every school holiday for 12 consecutive holidays

    The email should be something along the lines of

    Dear [what ever name you have]

    Please find attached my CV and covering letter in application for the [whatever] job as advertised in [wherever]. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Many thanks
