    So I am applying for work experience for the Britsh red cross over summer. I need to write a cover letter and a cv.

    Has any one got any samples? I'm totally new to this as i am only in year 10 and its my first time!


    Okay, cover letter example for Mcdonalds (standard xD) my annotations are in bold!

    To whom it may concern,

    McDonalds Team Member - The position you are applying for

    I am applying for the position above which I was told about by a friend who is also an existing employee and I also found the vacancy on your website. I have just finished my GCSEs and will start college in September with promising grades.

    I would be right for the job as...
    Put things like: you care about the company. You want to gain experience and how you want to learn new things.

    Sign it off with 'I would love to be a member of the team and I look forward to your response'

    Thank you,
    Yours sincerely

    I have attached a rough template

    I hope this helps and good luck!
