Should I include a CV when applying for voluntary work experience at a pharmacy? watch

    • Thread Starter

    (Sorry if this is in the wrong forum)

    I'm looking to apply for pharmacy at university and was hoping to get some work experience at my local pharmacy (small, independent). I was wondering if i would need to write a formal letter and include my CV for VOLUNTARY work experience, or if I am just able to pop in without a CV and ask.


    Edit: I am 16 going into year 13 for my A2's.

    I did my work experience at a hospital and didn't need a CV just said a few words, more like a personal statement sort of thing.
    Include it if you want though if you feel they'd like to know a bit more of what you've done in the past

    I would include one, along with a personal statement. It may not be necessary but it shows your dedication and what you have done. My mum works at a pharmacy in Tesco's and her boss is always looking for people that stand out, e.g. my mum because she is great with people.
