REFEREES Susan Mdala, Principal, Masibambine High School Sonwabo Ndondo, Gugulethu Section X Police Station This pamphlet is to help school-leavers apply for jobs. Compiled by the Professional Communication Unit, University of Cape Town© CV stands for for “Curriculum Vitae.” It means ‘course of life’ in Latin and it should do just that – list the important things that you did and the roles you had through your life. Your name is most important so put it right up front. Employers want to know about work you have done before. Even if you were not paid, it still counts as work experience. Sometimes it is worth doing voluntary work just to have some work experience on your CV. Referees are people who are willing to comment on your character, skills and experience. Put your referees right at the end. Give the same information for both your referees. Don’t include reference letters unless asked for. The purpose of your CV is to get you a job interview – so have your contact details where they can be quickly found. Unless asked for, don’t list personal details like your marital status and health. Just your ID number should be fine. Always include dates in your CV. Start with your most recent educational qualification. If you got a diploma or a degree after you did your matric you should put that first. If you got good marks, you might include them here. Put down the role you had and at which organisation it was. Give your reader an idea of what you had to do in that role and what you learned. Think about the roles you have had that could be useful in the job you are applying for. For example, employers are always looking for people who have leadership experience. Many employers want to see your CV before they interview you for a job. There is no right way to write your CV. The example used on this page is just one way to set out your CV. Usually the job advertisement will tell you what information the employer is looking for. Study the job advertisement closely to see what you should put in your CV and what you should leave out. Write your CV

2 Write a covering letter for your CV Thandi Ndlovo 48 NY1034, Section 2 Gugulethu 7700Gugulethu, March 2011 Ms Cathy Brown Recruitment Officer Sales House PO Box 345 Cape Town 8000 Dear Ms Brown Application for position of assistant administrator (Ref: Cape Times, 12/03/2011) I am applying for the position of assistant administrator which was advertised by Sales House in the Cape Times on 12 March I am confident that I have the necessary qualifications and experience for the job. I recently graduated with a full matriculation exemption including an above average grade in accountancy. I put my accounting skills to use when I served as the treasurer for the Representative Council of Learners in my final year of high school. This experience also taught me how important it is to pay attention to detail and to prepare documents timeously. As a volunteer on weekends with the South African Police Services, I come across many different people with different attitudes from all walks of life. This work has made me aware of how to deal with and handle difficult people and situations calmly and I believe this will be useful in an assistant administrative position. I am also a hard worker and reliable. Every school holiday I worked as a child-minder and my employers could count on me to be on time and take care of their child in their absence. Please find more details of these and other experiences in my attached curriculum vitae. I would appreciate an opportunity to discuss my skills and qualifications with you in person. I look forward to hearing from you. Yours sincerely Thandi Ndlovo( Ms) Enc. This pamphlet is to help school-leavers apply for jobs. Compiled by the Professional Communication Unit, University of Cape Town© Write what your letter is about clearly at the top. This is called the “subject line”. Include a reference to where you found the job advertisement. A covering letter should go with your CV. The letter should highlight the key reasons why you are suitable for the job you are applying for. Make sure you give facts to back up any claims that you make. Write your name address and contact details first. Write out the date. Then put the name, position and contact details of the person you are writing to. Make sure the reader knows exactly what you want them to do at the end of the letter.
