I have just handed in my notice at work, and want to revamp my CV. My current job hasnít got much to do with my degree, and I want something more relevant to my degree. So I have decided to do an internship, but I know competition is fierce for those. Is there much difference between an internship CV and a general career one? I want to get this right, so if you have any advice I would really appreciate it!

Also my current boss doesnít like me very much, do I have to use him as a reference?

You don't need a reference from an individual boss.  Perhaps the HR department would help or a colleague you worked with.

Your CV should be accurate and as you are going for presumably unpaid work, I wouldn't think it matters that much. 

The "employer" has nothing to lose at all.

I suggest you mention that you want to develop your skills through study at a later date, but feel your experience would be useful in seeking a future career! etc etc.
