- 0Jan 15 by amccoanHi there,
just wondering if anyone has any fool proof templates or websites that have examples of cv's used in the uk. I'll be applying for a job there soon. Any advice on how to go about it? Should I use a travel agency or walk into hospitals and introduce myself. I know it's all who you know. My resume isn't terribly impressive and I have no specialty yet so any helpful tips and tricks are welcome!

- 0Jan 16 by amccoanOkay good to know. So is it easier to apply to the website? I know here at home it's all "who you know" and applying from outside the network is virtually impossible to get anywhere. Any advice there? Also I still need a cv example. Mines completely out of date and I have no idea if they are different in the uk then canada.

Im almost in the same situation as you, as im going also through the NMC reg process rightnow. I find this website very helpful Jobs, Careers and Recruitment on reed.co.uk, the UK's #1 job site, it provides lots of information about writing cvs and covering letters, there are also templates etc.
Through it you can also apply for jobs, but sort out your registration first.
Btw, you write that in Canada to find a jobs depends "who you know", well I find that distrubing. I live here in Germany and I could just apply for job anywhere within Germany and would most likely get a job across the country. Is it not same in Canada, I thought it was a highly develpoed country where merits, education etc count for something.
