CV and Cover Letter Workshop

Shaping your future workshop 

Your CV and cover letter are the first point of contact with an employer and is the make or break of your job application! It needs to be interesting to read, clear and concise. It should make a good first impression.

From the employer’s perspective, it is the only available information with which to assess your skills and suitability for a job. Everything in your CV tells a potential new employer something about you. Its purpose is to secure you a job interview. It won't get you the job itself - that is down to you during your interview.
