This is the final post for this blog. We have reached the end of this particular avenue. Many thanks to Tahira Majothi and Mary Macfarlane who were co-authors with me. We will no longer be maintaining and updating this blog, although existing content will remain.
In the near future we will be establishing a new careers blog which I am glad to say will be part of a new blogging platform for the university.
Keep an eye on news about this on our Careers website and our Twitter feed.
While we wait for our new university careers blog, some of us will be blogging here.
I have just edited my prezi on writing a CV. Help with CVs is probably one of the most sought after services we offer in Careers & Employability, so I wanted to make my presentation available online. Writing a CV is often a hard thing for people to do, even though I know there are so many step by step guides (my prezi included).
I think what makes it so challenging, is that doing a good CV needs you to know yourself well and then be able to use vocabulary to sell yourself. The CV is a combination of an authentic written confessional mixed with a personal ad. No wonder, many of us hate doing one.
So don’t keep putting if off – just get on with it and update your CV! If you are one of our students and graduates, some and get some help from us in doing this.
