Event description

Description

 Are you applying for lots of jobs and getting nowhere? Or do you need to dust off a CV that’s so old, you don’t know what to do with it? Maybe you’re changing career direction, and need help with how to position your past experience?

Our three hour CV Clinic will help you.

You’ll learn how to sell your skills, match them to what the employer is looking for, and get your CV to the top of the pile.

You’ll leave our CV Clinic knowing how to write a good CV, and the importance of targeting it to suit each job.The workshop will guide you through these areas:

  • What style of CV best suits your career history (we’ll supply alternative formats)
  • How to decode job adverts to identify what employers are looking for
  • How to use language that will convince employers you have the skills they need
  • How to target your CV for each job you apply for
  • How to write an ‘evidence-based’ covering letter

Please note that there won’t be time to actually write your CV at the session, but you’ll come away equipped to write it.

What will the workshop be like?

It will be friendly and supportive!

What makes Women Like Us really different, is that our qualified career coaches have years of experience working with parents who’ve had a career break. So we know how to write a CV that deals with gaps in your career history or changes in career direction.

It will be fun too. The workshop is an interactive session with practical activities and exercises.

And there will be a maximum of 15 participants – a small enough group for everyone to get some individual support.

Location

The Bridge, 81 Southwark Bridge Road, London, SE1 0NQ.  See map
