Hey, I wanna apply at Tessuti and JD for 2 different jobs - a Sales Assistant and a Supervisor. My only question is - what skills do I need to become one. I'm currently in college and I want a part time job and I've struggled so far so please let me know what skills I need so that I know what skills I can put on my CV and write examples of to make my CV look better suited to the job application.

For sales assistant - friendly, work well in a team, customer focused, reliable. The ability to be pleasant always and keep a smile on your face, enjoying organising things and being good with handling money and a quick learner.
For supervisor, unless you have retail experience already they wouldn't hire you for that for a first job - they have no proof of your ability, if you even turn up to shifts and if you have a good reputation. Apply for supervisor/management roles once you have experience and good references from other roles. Plus you'll find most supervisors don't end up working part-time and it becomes a full time job.

thank you. Is that all I should write down or are there any other skills that I could put on with them aswell as the more skills I've got the better my CV looks as it looks like I can offer them a lot.
