    Sorry for the odd request, but i've seen a job in a club for glass collector. The hours are good (10pm-4am) as I don't sleep much and I am near the place, but I don't have a clue on how to make myself more attractive on my CV for such a job.

    It states that experience is preferrable but not essential, something that I lack.


    Any tips?

    At first I thought you would be 16 or something, but then I looked at your profile...

    Not slating you or anything, a jobs and a job and all that. I did it myself when I was 17 and at college - certainly didn't need a CV though :p

    You don't need to state that you have a degree in glass collecting and they won't be looking for someone who has. Bar work would probably help you get the job but that's down to you to sell yourself in your covering letter and interview.

    So just send in a normal CV and then say why you'd like the job in a letter.

    bugger my profile is wrong, I am 20 not 30 lol.



    Also they request a CV and a photo. Its a decent club so I guess they want someone decent.

    Stick down excellent people skills so someone doesn't deck you when you take their nearly finished pint.

    Actually, I think this is one job where a comedy cv may go down pretty well.

    EVERYONE wants experience now! I'm looking for a job at the minute too. Experience for collecting glasses ffs, it's a joke.

    I was thinking this! Nothing would beat the look on their face with you there and them reading the "1st Degree in Glass removal and distribution"

    A comedy picture of you holding glasses would also be a top option! :D

    I agree - Face it, this is a recession - any job is going to get hundreds of applicants, yet daft HR employment rules prevent them from just hiring the first CV they get - a comedy one would stand out, prove you have a sense of humour that would work with customers etc.....

    Go for it! :D

    I agree with the above, make it a bit tongue-in-cheek, but don't go overboard.

    Light humour should go down well though :D

    Tell them your also willing to clean the glasses. You will be on a winner with that.
