Need your CV to work better for you?

These short videos are a great start to get your head round what should or could be in your CV…and what shouldn’t.

Employers may just ask for a CV but most will expect a covering letter to go with the CV.  Think of it as a presentation package – the CV is factual, edited highlights about you in relation to the required criteria. You don’t have to tell them everything about everything! The cover letter links to your CV but doesn’t duplicate it. It’s the place to summarise what you can offer and – more importantly – get across your motivation and interest in the job and the organisation. If you can include a cover letter, you should.

For an introduction to cover letters, start with this short podcast. Once you have a draft, get some feedback by booking an appointment on MyCareerHub or coming along to the Physics drop-in service, Thursdays 12 – 1.30 outside Magnet cafe, JCMB
