Help in writing a CV.

Asked by tecc (26points) May 24th, 2010

Looking to do an office job, I’m familiar with using Microsoft office suite Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint. I know basic computer languages such as HTML, XHTML, PHP, CSS and would be willing to learn more if needed. Can also do general maintenance fixing and setting up hardware and software.

Not a huge amount of qualifications but a couple.
I’ve been learning maths online and I’m much better than the results I’ve got from school.
I’m 20 only had one other job that doesn’t relate to where I want to go and took it as I was desperate.

I am keep to start at the bottom of a simple office job, show my abilities and work my way up.

I’ve relatively good with PCs, I don’t want to belabour the point I haven’t got any qualifications to back all this up and can’t start a course to so I can.
Should I even mention I learn maths online along with other subjects?

I’m willing to gain actual experience in this sort of work placement even if it is from the bottom.

what’s a cv?

A curriculum vitae or curriculum vitæ (CV) provides an overview of a person’s life and qualifications. The CV is typically the first item that a potential employer encounters regarding the job seeker and is typically used to screen applicants, often followed by an interview, when seeking employment.Wikipedia.

[Edit] Oops—I’m lagging way behind @gailcalled today. Well, I agree.

@Jeruba : But your example of internal rhyme was much better than mine.

Jeruba's avatar

But one should never miss a chance to quote “Ozymandias.”

gailcalled's avatar

@Jeruba: One does try to include it in as many places as possible.

I’m not sure where you are from. But if you are in Europe then the E.C.D.L could help you have something extra to put on your C.V. Since you are already familiar with Office it should be a piece of cake.
