CVs – your own personal marketing tool

A CV can sometimes feel like just a list of generic things you have done, but written correctly it can be a powerful tool to grab the attention of potential employers and outshine rival candidates.   


We will offer tips on the importance of tailoring your CV, share some common pitfalls and explore some hints on how to make your CV stand out. We will also discuss supporting statements when applying for jobs and having the best chance of getting through to the next stage.
