connexions will definetly help you its their job to weather it be part time or full time wont make a difference and if they say otherwise they are chatting out their ar$e unless its changed since like may this year or go to a careers adviser at your school/college

connexions are great plus most colleges will have time allocated in their timetables for cvs, ucas, etc

iv'e spent the last 3 or 4 months reading cv's nonstop. if you're 17 then i guess you don't have a lot of work experience to write about but what you do have is aspirations so go for those. if you want to send me your cv i'll have a read and give you some comments to think about.

what 'job' are you after? what are your hopes and dreams, ambitions etc..

1. When doing a CV always write it on good quality paper, I've seen cracking CV's thrown in the bin when they've been sent in on crap paper.

2. Always be clear in what you've achieved like date and place.

3. The last bit is hobbies, always state you like to keep fit, employers like people who look after themselves.

Speak to a few recruitment agencies, and then send them a copy. I've gotten them to give feedback in the past, as they tend to know what format works well.

What kind of area do you want to get in to, and what part of the country are you in? Maybe people can recommend a couple of decent agencies.

Oh and a nice clear font always works well to. The last CV I did was done in Constantia, it's a nice clear font with a little bit of class added.
What about using wingdings? :rolleyes:
