A FREE interactive online workshop to help young people write a CV that really sells their skills....and helps them get a Great First Job!
About this Event
Hi....and thanks for checking out my workshop - "How to Write a Great First CV"
You know, I can't recall the last time I saw a CV from a young person that really hit the spot...one that clearly captured the key points, and was super-effective at communicating them to an employer.
And I know that this means some young people are not securing interviews for jobs that they really want....and I can help make sure this doesn't happen to you.
Schools do an incredible job of ensuring that the students applying to university have a really great Personal Statement. Teachers help pupils think about the info they can include and help them re-write it until it really works.
This workshop is designed to make sure that young people seeking employment can access that same level of information and support.
A CV's job is to get you into the interview room....where you can then wow the employer with your personality, your experiences, your skills and your all-round awesomeness.
But a poorly written CV means that you might not even get into the interview room, and so they never get to see what they're missing!
I've been helping young people find their first job for over 30 years. Whether that's straight after GCSEs, A Levels or after graduating from university. I know what works and what doesn't.....and have a bunch of easy fixes you can apply to your CV.
We will cover:
How to write a great Summary Statement
What order to put your CV in (and why that can sometimes change)
How to lay out your qualifications
Why your part time jobs are really important...and how to present them
Interests? Is anyone interested in your interests? Of course they are!
What should I do about references?
What design templates to use......and which ones to avoid
