    I just attached another page to my cover letter with a picture of myself and Goofy on it.
    Kind of to show them in advance that I have the "Disney look" and an interest in Disney.

    They cant ask you to bring a picture with your CV to the f2f, its illegal to ask for one in america. From my knowledge, no one sends pictures with their CVS in america ???

    i didnt bother doing anything like that and i didnt see anyone at my interview who had anything like that or who mentioned it. Its up to you,but i wouldnt think that they will be looking for it.

    its just that i mention charity work and dressing in some rather odd costumes, on my cover letter. and as ive heard peopel say theyve added pics before, i thought it would be cool to add one of me in my caterpillar costume lol

    all i did was jazz up my cv with a pic of mickey and some mickey ears, but nothing of myself etc as they need to be careful over equal opportunities and stuff.

    yeah I swear I read somewhere that you shouldn't ever put a photo of yourself on a CV/ cover letter because they could unintentionally be prejudice... that and revealing any possible political leanings were apparently they big two no-nos... that said, I get the feeling that Yummy probably aren't going to judge based on what you look like, but you know :p Anyway, I doubt adding a photo will have either a negative or positive effect on your chances really, but I'm not a Yummy Jobs recruiter so God knows!

    i was just going to say,if you apply for a job in any hotel (4 or 5 stars mostly) they will usually ask you to attach a photo with your application.....esp if your front of house

    I put a little Mickey head on my CV and cover letter but that was it.

    I read people on here put poems and stuff on their cover letters. I wouldn't have gone to that extent...

    cheers guys!

    i sent my coverletter off before id read most of the replies, but i added it as a seperate attachment and mentioned it in the email, so i guess it was up to her to open it if she wanted to. :)

    *here's hoping!*
