    Default Skills and Experience

    Hi all,

    I'm new to this forum, and this is my first post, hope is everyone is doing fine out there.

    Like the title suggests, i was wondering how do i go about in starting my 'skills and experience' writing on a job application form?

    English being my second language, and i'm still learning, but improving ever-so slowly.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Shaolun

    On a form, you just use note form, the name, dates aned the expreience:

    Name of Company (date from to)
    Job
    Experience, responsibilities

    Have a read through some of the CVs in this thread and you'll see plenty of examples.

    Hi tdol,

    thanks for your help.

    One more thing... The application wants me to write out my experience/skills. There is another part for my previous employment details.. so i think this is seperate.

    Like this:

    Skills and Experience

    and then you get a box to write everything in it.

    Thanks, sorry for being a pain

    Shaolun- could you put what you want to write up here and then we can help you shape it- it's easier to work on something specific than in vague general terms. You can 'anonymse' it by using xxx University, etc.

    Question Re: Skills and Experience

    To tdol:

    I'm also new to this forum. I'm now preparing for the application for admission to
    a Ph.D program in US.

    If I post my PS on the forum, will the other members help me make it better or more native?

    thx
