What kind of CV should I send for a bar job?
I have completed an application form for a part time job in a bar but they have requested a CV as well.

No more than 2 pages; write it slanted at the employer rather than yourself (not too many I am's). State quickly how employing you will benefit them and mention any relevant experience. The first paragraph has to grab their attention so they read on. There are a lot of free web sites that help people to write CVs. Good... More

A CV is your advert for yourself, to get what you want, which is the job. Make it relevant only to the work in question... More
