Class of 2018: Successful CVs, cover letters and applications
Date: 27 June 2018
Learn how to stand out from the crowd and get through to the next stage in the application process.
Come along to this workshop and find out how to write powerful and effective applications that emphasise your skills and experience.
Recruiters report their greatest frustration with graduate applications is the lack of “selling” of you and your experience. Anyone can say they have great customer service skills, but can you evidence them, giving examples that demonstrate the skills required?
This session will look at different types of CV and help you devise the CV that suits you best. It will provide tips on presentation, how to evidence your skills and how to tailor them to an organisation.
Find out how you can tailor your cover letter and application form to persuade the organisation that you have the right qualifications, experience and skills for the job.
This workshop will help you think about what the employer wants to know about you and how to word your achievements effectively, giving you the best chance to get through the first hurdle of the application process.
It will help you to identify and articulate the skills you have gained and look at translating and focusing these into skills and careers outside academia. Understanding the employers' perspective is part of the workshop.
By the end of the session you will know how to create an effective CV, a persuasive cover letter and an application form tailored to the job.
Only available for University of Leeds students and recent graduates.
