    My college planner has a sample cv in it which i'll post a picture of down below and I was wondering if a cv like this would actually get you a part time job (which is what i'm going to be applying for) . Obviously i'll change it to make it personal to me but is this sample cv too basic or is it okay?

    It looks fine, however lots of people use sample CV's so yours is likely to fall into a sea of similarity. The principle is fine but your skills may not be fully appreciated if your CV is very 'generic'. sadly even poorly paid part time work is highly fought after.

    Do you have any tips on how to make it less generic?
    And yeah, it's annoying how even jobs that are seen as 'bad' are quite difficult to get due to the high volume of applicants.
