Check out this guide to finding part time jobs in Letchworth

So, you're looking for part time jobs in the Letchworth area but don't know where to start or how to go about it? Don't worry, that's what we're here for! You'll find everything you need to know from helpful hints to the best websites right here.

As with any job search, you need to first make sure that you've got the basics right. This means making sure that your Curriculum Vitae is up to date, and written to a high standard. By high standard we don't mean that it reads like Shakespeare play, but simply that everything is clearly laid out, mistake free and without unnecessary padding.

The whole point of your CV is to give prospective employers a good idea of your previous work experience, education and any interests or personality traits that may help you to carry out your duties to the highest possible standard, not to tell your life story in great detail. As a rule, your CV should never be longer than two pages - if you have additional thing you would like to include, you can always put them in your cover letter.

Your cover letter is another often misunderstood part of the job application process. The aim of this letter is to outline why you are the best person for the job, using examples from your previous experience or education, as well as by outlining desirable personal traits such as reliability and ability to work without continual direction from your superiors. The cover letter is often the first (and only) thing that employers see about you, so make sure that it stands out.

Once you've got all that done it's time to hit the net and begin your job search. When looking for part time work, we don't recommend the bigger, more popular job sites. Instead it's wiser to focus on free classifieds sites like Gumtree, or your local area's newspapers' websites, since the larger sites cost quite a lot of money to advertise on, and employers are unlikely to use them in order to advertise a part time role with a few hours a week.
