When it comes to applying for a new job, your CV is the ticket to secure an interview and hopefully, a job. Read the following tips to help you get started in creating a successful CV.
Get the basics right-These include: personal and contact information; education and qualifications; work history or experience; relevant skills to the job in question; your own interests, achievements or hobbies; and some references.
Presentation is key-A successful CV is always carefully and clearly presented, and printed on clean, white paper. The design should always be well-structured and CVs should never be wrinkled or folded. Stick to no more than two pages of A4 paper. A good CV is clear and brief.
Tailor your CV-When you’ve made sure what the job you are applying for involves, create a CV specifically for that job. Any CV you send to a potential employer should be adjusted to that particular job. Don’t be lazy and hope that a general CV will work because it won’t. Employers want to know why you would be a good choice to fill the specific job on offer.
Make the most your skills-Under the skills section of your CV mention key skills that can help you to stand out from the crowd. These could include; communication skills; organizational skills; computer skills; team working and problem solving. Emphasize the things that show off skills you’ve gained and employers look for.
Include references- References should be from someone who has employed you in the past and can confirm your skills and experience. They can also be from a teacher or a principal from your school. Try to include two if you can.

A family had had a cat for years-a much loved pet who also loved them. Then, one day, the children finally managed to persuade theirparents to get them a puppy as well. And so a cute little Labrador made his entrance.
Everyone loved the puppy. However, the cat made it very clear she did not appreciate another pet in the house. She hissed(发出嘶嘶声)and tried to scratch the little puppy---but the puppy just loved the cat anyway. He followed her everywhere, trying to play with her. What a sight it was—the little dog trying to make friends with the angry cat. No amount of bad behavior from the cat could persuade the puppy not to love the cat. The family figured the cat would never like the dog.
A few weeks passed. Then one day they heard horrible screaming from their back yard. They ran to the window to see what was happening. It took a while for them to believe their eyes. A lynx(猞猁)was on their back yard and it was just planning on grabbing their cat for lunch. The poor cat had no chance—it was screaming but had nowhere to run or hide. It would only be a matter of seconds and their cat would be dead.
And then the unimaginable happened. Out of nowhere a black lighting ran to the rescue. The little Labrador was only half grown but it attacked the lynx with all its might. It was barking on top of its lungs, ready to bite the other to bits. The lynx decided it was time to go and disappeared into the woods.
And ever since that day the cat’s behavior toward the dog changed totally. Now it was the cat that followed the hero dog everywhere.

She lived alone in a small flat in Chicago, and was a volunteer at the Children’s Hospital.

But Miss Holm, who died in 1996 at the age of 86, was also a longtime buyer of stocks(股票).Over the years, she saved money that rose up to 18 million, which she left to the Children’s Hospital.It was the largest single donation in the hospital’s 115-year history.The hospital president, Jan Jennings, was shocked when she heard the news. “When Miss Holm’s lawyer called to tell me how much that money was, I asked him to repeat it , since I was certain I had misheard”.
Why did Gladys Holm fell so strongly about the Children’s Hospital? Jennings said the hospital first touched Miss Holm’s heart nearly 50 years ago，when doctors there saved the life of her friend’s daughter.She never forgot the happiness she felt all those years ago.

Life really should be one long journey of joy for children who are born with a world of wealth at their tiny feet.
But experts on psychological research now believe that silver spoons can leave a bitter taste. If suicide (自杀)statistics are a sign of happiness, then the rich are a miserable lot. Figures show that it is the rich who most often do away with themselves.
Dr. Robert Coles, an internationally famous doctor, is the word's top expert on the influence of money on children. He has written a well-received book on the subject, The Privileged Ones, and his research shows that too much money in the family can cause as many problems as too little. “Obviously there are certain advantages to being rich,” says the 53-year-old doctor, “such as better health, educationand future work expectation. But most important is the quality of family-life. Money can't buy love.”
It can buy a lot of other things, though, and that's where the trouble starts. Rich kids have so much to choose from that they often become confused. Their parents' over favoring can make them spoiled. They tend to travel more than other children, from home to home and country to country, which often makes them feel restless.
“But privileged children do have a better sense of their positions in the world,” adds Mr. Coles, “and they are more self-confident.”
Today's rich parents perhaps have realized that their riches can be more of a burden than a favor to their children. So they do their best to ensure that their families are as rich in love as they are in money.
32. What does theunderlined word “silver spoons” in Paragraph 1 refer to?
A. Long journeys B. Tiny feet C. Great wealth D. Kitchen tools

A. Life is one long journey of joy for rich children

A. How money affects the wealthy people
B. How rich people deal with their money
C. Why the rich should help the poor
D. What are the advantages to being rich
35. According to Dr. Robert Coles, what is the most important to guarantee a happy life?
A. Good health B. Good education
C. Good jobs D. Good family-life
Five people are talking about tipping in a restaurant.
A tip is a “thank you,” but in truth, a tip is payment for service. 20% is a standard tip. Servers deserve it for their hard work. Tips make up about 97% of a server’s total income. 36 So, before servers are paid to living wage, tip 20%.
Why should I pay the difference between what the restaurant is willing to pay the employee and what an acceptable wage is? I do pay 20%, but I hate it. How about miners, construction workers, resident doctors, etc? 37
I’ve always viewed tipping as a way of saying “thank you” to the one who serves me. I tip according to the quality of service. The better the service, the higher the tip. 38 Much like the harder teachers in school, I never give an easy “A”.
18-20%for good service is today’s standard. The restaurant and its employees are too polite to tell you this or to put it on their menus, but that is their expectation and you need to understand that. 39 To do otherwise is to be openly rude.
Tipping has gotten out of control. I always had thought it was 15%, and now suddenly servers have made it 20%. I tip 15%, and that’s it. Interesting to be told, “If you can’t afford to tip 20%, then you should eat at home.” 40
A. Do they get tipped?
B. Those tips are needed for survival
C. I believe it is good manners to respect this
D. If you disagree, why not eat elsewhere?
E. Unless the service is perfect, I never tip more than 10% of the bill
F. Restaurants will never pay more unless they are forced to do so by new laws.
G. If all those people stayed away, the restaurant would not even be in business.
I’ve started driving again, just small journeys until I gain my confidence. Tonight I drove along a road 41 about 12 years ago. As I drove along it I 42 Kelly.

I brought Kelly to my home where I 51 and supported her through the whole unit. I got her to complete all the assignments at my home so that she would stay 52 .

Kelly’s lecturer was so 55 with her assignments that she got Kelly to 56 the higher level parts of the assignments to the rest of the class! This was so good for her self-esteem(自尊心). Kelly 57 her course. I was so glad she didn’t 58 .
A few yeas ago I met Kelly in the town centre. She was 59 a pram(婴儿车), her newly born son sleeping contentedly. I was glad to see life had brought a new family member into Kelly’s life for her to love. It’s the 60 she deserved.
