Applying for a new job

When applying for a new job most companys ask 4 a CV and written application so i have 2 questions:

1. Is it ok 2 type written application or does the company have to have a hand written version?

2. What does it have 2 include?

    type-written application is preferred.

    include the main ones; previous employment/experience/qualifications/references/interests etc

    Make the best decision at the time and never look back.

    Yeah, give like your last 2 employers and references from both those employers. All qualifications and big yourself up with a bangin' personal statement.

    What career is it for?

    you generally have to cater your cv for different careers, most of the templates you can find on google.

    This is true, it depends on the job you are going for. If you are going for a sales position, you should write down all the qualities you deem necessary for the job that you have from previous jobs.

    Personally I have not used a personal statement since I left college. Have you just left college or uni??? Is this your first proper job??? If so a personal statement is a good thing as you can put all the different skills you have built on your courses in this section.

    Also I never enclose references, I just put and the bottom references available upon request.

    this is a pretty big generalisation. For a professional career id be more surprised if they didnt check them, particularly your references. In addition, if your handy at microsoft word they have a half descent CV template built in. Use the little paperclip man and ask him a question!
