Careers Information for Students

CV Assistance

A CV is a concise summary of your qualifications, skills and experience. It is a key marketing document that is often your first opportunity to get that interview! Unfortunately, busy employers receive a large number of CVs and may only spend 30 seconds reviewing each one in order to shortlist, so your CV needs to make a good impression.

While there isn’t one way to write a CV, remember that the key objective is to make it easy for the employer to see how you meet their requirements. Ensure your CV does 
just that by having a clear and professional format, tailored to the specific job and 
providing evidence of relevant skills and qualities.
