Share CV Writing and Using LinkedIn

Event Details

Well-crafted CVs and LinkedIn profiles are crucial when job-seeking – the first stage in most filtering processes.

Writing them helps us to reflect on our career achievements and focus on what we have to offer a new employer.

Most of us can advise other people on their CVs, so why is it so difficult to write our own?

This practical session is full of effective, current and common-sense advice on how to write a CV (and LinkedIn profile) that will start a conversation or get you invited to interview.  

We will cover:

  • The essential components of a contemporary CV that works.
  • Selling yourself without waffle.
  • Using keywords to optimise your CV on job boards.
  • How to bring out transferable skills.
  • Explaining gaps or many roles with just one employer.
  • Writing an effective personal statement.
  • What recruiters hate about CVs.
  • Using LinkedIn to sell yourself and build relationships through your network.
  • Using LinkedIn (and other social media) to find work.
  • Digital job seeking techniques.

Bring your CV along for feedback and make improvements to it during the workshop.

Mumsnet Academy

So what is this Academy thing?

We're very excited to be launching The Mumsnet Academy - a brand new enterprise which aims to curate a portfolio of fantastic courses to fit around family commitments and busy working lives. 

A while back we asked you what courses you would like and the programme of masterclasses, workshops, and events we've come up with is a reflection of your  responses.

To help us deliver the programme we have enlisted some fabulous experts in a range of fields as well as teaming up with some great partners who have a reputation for delivering high-quality, life-changing courses.

This collaborative approach allows us to offer a programme across a range of different subjects including entrepreneurship, business, technology, social media, blogging, history of art, creative writing, publishing, gardening, philosophy, finance, fashion as well as courses concerned with self-improvement and the concept of learning to live wisely and well. Some of these courses will be skill-based, while others will explore concepts, theory and ideas.

If we've missed something you think is a must, fear not, we will be adding classes to our portfolio all the time so please drop us a line or complete the suggestion box on our website.

One of the things that we felt was important was to ensure our Academy courses are available across the UK and we are pleased to announce that we will be running events in Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Manchester from day one. We are also keen to develop some online courses and hope to announce the first of these later this year.
While our courses are scheduled at times which are more convenient for those with young children, they are absolutely open to everyone. Ultimately, the overall aim of the Mumsnet Academy is to bring people together in a thought-provoking and fulfilling environment where there is a universal willingness to explore ideas, develop skills, and learn from experts as well from each other.
