    Hey there

    I am filling out an application for a Temporary sales adviser for a clothes shop in my town atm.

    I feel i have nothing to say

    I have worked 2 days for a bouncy castle business and made £110...

    I have worked about 4 days for a gardening business and made £100..

    that's the only work I have done... is it even worth mentioning in the employment part or should I leave it blank?

    Also, I have not got much to say in the "other" bit where you just write about you..

    I help out at science club every monday and I also mentor younger pupils in Chemistry and Physics every wednesday.. and that's it pretty much..

    Any ideas? I doubt I will get the job due to lack of experience ..

    Well, yes, still include your employment history, no matter how small it may seem. Some experience is better than no experience at all, as far as I'm concerned.

    In regards to the part where you are writing about 'you', quite simply, just write about you. A general overview of your hobbies and interests, your schooling and any other extra-curricular activities would be a good starting point. Perhaps writing about yourself in reference to your suitability for the position would be a good idea; what you can offer to the role, and what you hope to gain in terms of skills and experience by working there would be something that employers would find interesting to hear.

    I wouldn't doubt yourself, you stand a good a chance as any on getting a job there.
