    Hi,
    right I've re-written my CV what feels like a hundred times and here's the best I've come up with. I wondered if anyone could give me any feedback. I'm desperately looking for an entry level IT job and at the moment i'll take anything (within reason) that'll give me the experience I need. I've sent off a CV to a few places with no replies yet, which is kinda getting me down. Any advice would be super appreciated, particularly on the bit about my failed attempt at a university degree (for reasons beyond my control of course).


    Thank youu :biggrin

    Maybe beef out your achievments, not sure about any explanation of having to leave uni though. Otherwise it looks quite readable to me.

    Not bad mate.

    Ditch the part about leaving uni and expand on "General maintenance of office PCs and network"

    What OS? Any AV products? Printers? Is there a wireless network? This is all IT stuff that should be on your CV. 8)

    Also, the bit that says A dynamic, highly ambitious perfectionist

    I would change this to something along the lines of

    Dynamic, highly ambitious, with an attention to detail, or something along those lines

    Looks alright to me apart from the things already mentioned, but what would I know!

    My CV consists the word "GOD!!" in big bold letters in the centre of an A4 piece of paper, and that's all i've ever needed :biggrin
