Writing a CV
If you want a good job, you need a good CV – it’s as simple as that. With a poorly written CV and cover letter you’ll always struggle to get an interview.
Job markets are always competitive, so employers will discard your CV if it contains even the smallest of mistakes. This can all make writing a CV a daunting task. What should you say? How should you say it? And what should you include in the accompanying cover letter?
Learners that want to make a great first impression need to take this course. They’ll gain valuable insight into what employers want to see and avoid the common mistakes so many people make. With the right knowledge and good planning, writing a persuasive cover letter and professional CV is easier than you think.
