Mark,
Get down your nearest Job Centre and tell them you want help with your CV etc.
I did this quite a few years ago and they sent me somewhere (some other DSS centre I think), where they'll teach how to write a good CV. You sit through 30 mins or so where the geezer shows you how to produce a good CV.
You then get on the computers and rewrite it and they'll review etc. etc.
Take the one you've got on a memory stick.

It transformed mine with positive results in the end.

maybe they can do something with mine. the one insurmountable problem is they can't change my birth year. soon as someone reads that, they say. UH,OH, old fart, politically incorrect, set in his ways, unemployable, but sod 'em. i work for myself as i'm the only person that would employ me. if i found someone willing to take me on, i'd assume he was loopy.

I'll take you on tel. 3 and 6 a week plus all the KP nuts you can eat. I might even throw in a ferret if you promise not to set your cat on him. :)

To Tel's post.... Haha...me too, you don't have put your DoB on anyway.

Just wear a wig when you go to the interview. :)

don't need a wig, mate. hair is one thing i have managed to keep, along with most of my own teeth. it's just the bloodshot eyes and wrinkles that let me down.
