Event description

Description

Are you a graduate living in Barking and Dagenham, Greenwich, Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets or Waltham Forest? Join us on the 10th July to talk all things job applications!

When it comes to CV profiles, job application personal statements and cover letters –the difference is you! Your unique combination of abilities and experiences are what will help you really stand out from the crowd and make recruiters want to meet you

In this session we will cover:

  • How to write a compelling personal profile for your CV
  • How to decode the person specification on a job description
  • You are the difference – Your USP!
  • How to write, structure and target a compelling personal statement on a job application which tells employers what they want to know
  • Different types of cover letters, what a great cover letter needs to be saying about you and how to structure one

These workshops are interactive sessions and we encourage you to come prepared to ask questions and share your thoughts. Sessions will include self-reflective exercises and group tasks aimed at focusing your thoughts on the topics at hand.
