Hi,

I'm filling out Open Day applications for a law firm. It does not ask me for a CV, but does ask me to list my work experience. It asks for the company name, position, date worked, and asks me to, "outline details/responsibilities in 150 words or less".

So when I outline my responsibilities, should I copy and paste the bullet points on my CV like this?


  • Contributed with a team of ten elves to produce wooden horses for Santa

Or do I write it out in complete sentences, like this?

"As a helper elf, I helped produce toys for Santa to deliver on Christmas Eve."

It's an odd one, because you don't list the responsibilities of the job on a CV, you show the skills/experience you applied. On balance, I'd go for the sentences structure, because they've given a word limit, but I don't suppose it's critical.
