Here are some of the most common Junior Apprentice CV rejection reasons and some tips to get an interview.

  • Too many spelling mistakes. This shows that the application was done in a rush. We are not looking for copywriters but someone who spell checks what they write, illustrates someone who takes care and pride in what they do.
  • Unable to understand the layout of your CV. Always put your contact details clearly at the top of your CV. It would be great if you could illustrate your education and employment history in reverse chronological order. Label each section so that it can be read quickly. Make use of bullet points instead of long sentences and choose a sensible font that it is no smaller than size 10. Your CV should only be 2 A4 pages long. Get someone to read it for you, a friend, your teacher or your parents. If they can give it the once over and understand what you have written, it will certainly improve your chances for securing an interview.
  • Write a cover note telling us more about you and why you should be considered for interview. Write a few lines about why you aspire to be a hairdresser. This is the chance to sell yourself, without bragging it too much! Ensure your cover note highlights the key skills and requirements you think you have to fulfil the position. Good luck.
