I'd emphasize your interest in bikes and in the industry. Employees interested in and enthused about what they sell will be better at making customers feel the same way.
Here's one: see if you can find out anything about the shop. If nothing else, ask for the owner or manager's number and talk to him/her about what the job entails. Ask about possible goals they might have for the business, and how your future job fits into the picture.DCRick said:Hey guys, I was job hunting hte other day, and spotted in a Bike shop near (ish) to me that they have a part time sale assistant job going, i enquired and they said to drop my cv in.
I am to write it tonight, but was wondering if any of you lot, who possibly work in bike shops, or have some good ideas as to what they would be lookign for.
I REALLY want the job as it is somethign i would obviously enjoy, and as its a fair few miles away i am looking forward to making the nice ride there and back every week end ( after recovering from the fractured elbow !!)
So, any one got any ideas as to what i should go on about, or what they would be looking for ?
I know its a crap job, but i really want it, cheers guys:thumbsup:

If the spelling, punctuation and grammar of your CV is anything like what you've displayed this posting, I'd say you're pretty well screwed. :nonod:DCRick said:ive been moweing lawns for the past 4 years mate, haha.
