Ultimately I want to become a full ime historian, but not having a degree has held me back in the past, even though I often have a lot of experince for the advertised jobs. So, I'm thinking of getting on the bottom rung of the ladder and there's a part time job advertized for an education officer at a stately home. The thing is, I have never filled in a job application form in my life! So, a few questions, Education - I'm 45 and left school with no qualifiications due to my mum dying just before exam time. What would you put in that bit? I then did a city and guilds in capentry and joinery - but this has no relevence to the job - would you put it down anyway? Where it asks about relevant qualifications for the job/ higher education, do I just say none but here's my practical expereince? And, I've been self employed for the last 18 years what do I put where they ask for previous employers details? Ta for the help. PS, I'm NOT giving up working in cycling for a good while yet!
