Cover Letter – part time jobs

Mcdonald Hiring Part and Full time

Harriet asks: When writing a Cover Letter in application for a job with my CV, should I state the hours I am available to work? I am applying for my first part time job – Thank You!

In answer:
Does the job advert say “please specify the hours you can work?” Even if it does, the answer is the same: NO!

It’s hard enough just getting to the interview stage, so never throw up any unnecessary road blocks. It may turn out that once they meet you, they’ll have some work for you that they weren’t thinking of before that matches your hours.

Rule of thumb: Answer the advert, and only tell them enough about your skills to get their interest to telephone you to arrange an interview.

Good Luck!
