i have stated unemployed as a current status as well as my previous work employment, i also have deleted work experiences which was more than 5 years to condense to 5 years only?

the website wont let you go further than that!

any other ideas?

my previous work experiences was seasonal casual temporary work which was with royal mail during the xmas period, could that be a reason for gaps in employment??

You have to have something in the gaps or they won't let it go further. So if you were unemployed, yes. If you were at school over the past 5 years, put that on.

you've a gap that's too big between school and college. You'll have to fill that in with something like "on holiday" or something or it won't let you past to the next page. If I remember correctly you can only have a 14 day gap.

Definitely make sure you include things like summer holidays etc. That's how I did it on my application last Christmas.

They wouldn't laugh. As long as your capable of carrying the bags and stuff, you'll be fine.

Postmen tend to be on the smaller side anyway from what I've seen. At 186cm I'm like a giant where I work.

Do you work for the royal mail? Anyone seen any young postwomen?

yes and yes. There aren't many though, it's a male dominated job, and older men at that. Most women work indoors too.

Hi, I know this is a bit of an old thread now but hoping someone will see this. I'm currently applying for a job at the royal mail depo nr me and like most people on here having probelms with the whole 5 year and 14 days thing, here is what I've put in:

1/7/2011 to present
14/7/2009 - 28/6/2011
3/8/2008 - 4/7/2009

Condensed it to fit in within 5 years and as far as I can see there is no gaps bigger than 14 days!
Can anyone help me?

Thanks.

SB.
