Writing a successful CV

Being able to demonstrate all your skills and experience, along with your interests and ambitions is essential when looking for employment, whether it is permanent or a part time job while studying.

The following guide will help you to construct your CV, letting you know what information to write about and how to present it. Click the link below to use this guide to get you started, or you can find similar templates on the internet.

There is also a skills map (below); this helps you to identify what skills you are good at. Remember, we can all say we are good at something, but you need proof to back it up!

 

pointy2If you need any help or somebody to look at your CV, you can either, email to Mrs Chadwick sarah.chadwick@taw.org.uk  or pop along to the Careers office with it.

 

Looking for work

Being able to find a part time job not only allows you to earn some money while you are studying, but also build on your employability skills for the future. Once you have completed your CV, you can upload it to the following job sites. This allows you to register and create alerts when vacancies appear.

  • Please note, some employers will use a number of sites, so you may see the same job advertised on many sites.
  • Also, some employers DO NOT advertise on any job sites at all, they may only advertise on their own company website; so it’s worth checking them out too!
