Personal profile

I have always had a passion to work in retail, café , as I believe that my strong interpersonal skills and eagerness to learn would make me an ideal candidate for these roles. Friends and family have always described me as friendly and outgoing as I am able to engage with people from all backgrounds.

I can confidently say that volunteering has helped me to become a team player which I personally feel is a very important skill to have when working in retail.

Your education should be nearer the top of the CV. I put my work experience in the middle of the CV. It needs restructuring and depends on how you are writing to these companies?
