The end of Woolworths, store closures and job losses


So it has been decided, all Woolworths stores will be gone from UK high streets by 5 January, resulting in the closure of 807 stores and the loss of around 27,000 jobs.

Some will find work in the stores that take the place of Woolworths on the high street but many of the stores will sit empty for much of 2009 as the economy slips deeper into recession.

If you are one of the people that has been effected by the collapse of Woolworths it is definitely a good idea to have things prepared should another store take the place of Woolworths. They will need staff but there will be many more people looking to take these jobs.

Have your CV written and ready should this eventuality arise. Check out this guide for writing a winning CV.

CV on one page

It seems that there is a trend to get CVs down to one page.

I really want to know who are the people that decide that they wouldn't read a well set out, clear CV that is written on two pages.

I personally prefer two pages. The CVs that I have seen on one page are either lacking in detail or are jam-packed onto one page, making the CV very difficult to read.

Perhaps there is a case for a one page CV for your first job as some employers don't really care about what you've done outside of school or university. Then again many do and I don't think its worth the risk leaving that stuff out!

If you're an employer who'd reject someone with a two page CV then you probably should look twice at your recruitment policy.
