It says in the advert “full training provided” so I’m not too depressed by my lack of retail experience. I have a lot more experience of dealing with the public in clothes depots, etc, and of trying good-humouredly to beat off children trying to steal from a church bookstall. Should I go on and on about my passion for defeating cancer, or what? (it being a Cancer Research shop, I mean)
I just wondered if there was anything really obvious that I’m missing out on. I’ve listed all my formal qualifications and my degree, and explained how I come to find myself in need of a job, and justified blank spaces in my CV as best as I can. But is it a good idea for me to just have section of the CV explaining these blank spaces? Should I ignore them instead?
The shop is in a fairly rowdy part of town.
