    k so theres an employment agency near where i live for students and they've told me that they can't do anything for me until i write up a CV. problem is i have never written a CV before in my life and have only seen a few (i forgot the contents of them though as it's been a while). so firstly, does anyone know where i can find good CV layouts? and secondly, what are some important DO's and DONT DO's that i need to bare in mind?

    quick background info: im 16, finished GCSE's this year, doing A levels next year and i live in central london.

    thanks.. +ve rep to most helpful answer

    I have never written a CV myself but from what i know you put details on such as:
    *Name
    *Age
    *Address
    *Education (any qualifications you have taken, are currently taking etc)
    *Any voluntary work you have done/are doing (employers seem to like
    this)
    *When you are available to work
    etc

    There may be some more help on the student room for doing CV's, you could maybe have a look to find out more.
