Would you put the OnlineBookClub on your CV?

Post by EvelynBlake » 12 Oct 2018, 08:43

Hi! I'm relatively new here. I have joined in July but am mostly just getting into the swing of things now.

Here's the thing, my local bookshop is hiring seasonal staff, and I would REALLY love to try working there.
I applied last year and was unsuccessful.
Since then, I have tried to do more relevant things. For example, I am volunteering at a charity bookshop now and have joined this place to learn how to write reviews.

Is it worth mentioning that I am a volunteer reviewer? I am only level one, although my reviews are pretty decent (I mostly lose points due to punctuation mistakes :oops: and not the content).

Thanks for your time <3

Welcome and good luck!

What's a CV?
CV is Curriculum vitae - used in England. It is a summary of a person's experience and qualifications. This is similar to a resume in the U.S. The main difference would be that a C.V. is meant to be a full list of an applicant's qualifications whereas a resume is a brief targeted list of skills and achievements.

I have realised I don't get notifications if someone replies. Oops! I have decided to add it to the CV after all. :)

You should get notifications if someone uses the quotation marks on your post like I just did. :tiphat:

Thank you! I'm getting notifications now :-)
Fingers crossed I will get the interview, but I won't know until November.
