    You could look in the yellow pages for local places that might do it so you could go in and ask? Or phone someone locally?

    I duno! Good luck! & good night if you're going to bed xx

    You sure you need to do it professionally? There are lots of good free templates and advice on CVs out there on the tinternet...

    I've seen hundreds of these and most of the time they are not that good.
    I've seen the same CV with different names printed on the top...
    Do it yourself and I think you will have a better response.

    What part of this are you having a problems with?
    layout
    content

    Might be able to help if you are more specific.

    My first tip is never go over 2 pages. I keep layout on mine very simple in design

    Do it yourself it is easy to create a professional CV and as already mentioned CV's dont often mean a lot to employers.

    Create a CV, keep it short and to the point (my CV is 1 page, but never go more than 2). Detail your "relevant" emplyment, relevant qualifications, relevant experience.

    If you want to get it notice, use a thicker slightly coloured paper that way it catches the eye when lost in a stack of plain white CV's.

    thanks for the advise guys. I'll have a good look around on the internet and see what I can do. I just don't want to end up out of a job and I'm trying to think of things that may help me.

    Good quality paper is a good tip as well, I use heavyweight beige.

    Guardian newspaper every Saturday have a CV clinic with examples etc for you to look at.
