Creating A Professional Email Address
It’s probably about time that you get rid of your ‘cool kid’ email address and create a professional new email for job hunting. By using your name rather than slang or something you once found funny, you will come across more serious, and they will take you as such. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org sounds like a better candidate than email@example.com does. This would just get you the attention from employers that you don't really want!
In the education section, you can put all of the qualifications you have to date, this also includes other things you might have done like NCS. If you haven’t got them yet, you can put grades as pending which means these are what your teachers predict you will be getting.
