Just done my skills based CV.
Nice one, hows it looking?
My first job (after paper rounds and before A Levels etc) was in the local shop. 1st Day was 18 March 1995, I remember that day cos I worked the afternoon and was then in hospital by the evening.
Hope it wasnt to serious, was it job related?
Not bad. All done just waiting for some feedback.
Main AV Setup: Panasonic 50VT65 TV, Pioneer Bdp-lx71, Pioneer Vsx-lx70, B&W FPM Series, B&W PV1, Optimum AV300 AV Stand, QED Silver Anniversary XT Speaker Cable & Chord Silver Plus HDMI Cables. Gadgets: iPad 4 & iPhone 4S.
Apart from minor work delivering newspapers or mail, my first real job was as an Apprentice in the Merchant Navy in 1964, aged 16. I served four years before being eligible to take my first examination (which I passed) and went on to have a thoroughly enjoyable career at sea.
I cannot recommend Apprenticeships highly enough - I learnt how to do the job, as well as how to manage a team. This experience has underpinned my whole working life.
BTW, at start I was paid £10 a month, and in my final year it had reached a jaw dropping £25 a month - which I rarely managed to spend !!
