Very good, I see no reason why it shouldnt get you an interview, if you want me to be really pickey and i DO mean really pickey, I have three suggestions, firstly , (and this is only my personel opinion), I would try to lose some of the general non electrical work - assuming the job is electrically orientated if its general maintenance leave it in, secondly try not to use the term, "earth bonding", either your earthing something or your bonding it, two compleatley different things (nic snags and solutions is will put you right) , thirdly get hobbies and interests in there somewhere, I know it sounds daft but if you come across as an intresting outgoing person rather than a weekend couch potato you are more likely to get that phonecall, and thats it.
(told you it was pickey), good luck.

thank you for your advice mate.

Earthed all exposed and extraneous conductive parts. does this sound better :)


err no,

bonded all exposed etc etc,

rough guide to help you remember,

we "earth electrical items" ie shower throught the cpc connected to the met in cu
we "bond" non electrical items ie water pipes and steel buildings to prevent the introduction of an earth potential.
and we do not "earth bond" anything.

hope this helps.
