Jobs Asking About Previous Employment

I'm thinking of applying for a temporary Christmas job in Argos. They've asked about previous employment. I've neer been 'employed' by anyone as such. The only 'employment' I've had is a work placement between October 11th 2006 - June 27th 2007. Do I put this down or do I just leave it blank?

    I'd put it down :thumb:

    They probably only ask so they can see who's got skill from retail places anyway. Argos as always desperate for seasonal staff too so don't worry about it :)

    Put it down! Especially as you've never been 'employed', all experience is going to go in your favour. If I hadn't had a 'proper' job before Iw ould put down things like babysitting and paper rounds, dog walking and lawn mowing, anything where you can show that you were in a position of trust and completed the task successfully and reliably over a period of time, and people were willing to pay you for it.
