In this second part of the Own Your Career programme, you will learn the skills you need to be successful in the job market.
That's partly about creating a powerful marketing document (possibly more than one version): a CV that's fit for purpose (your purpose) and tells your audience how you can help them. It's also about being able to adapt your CV and take it to the job market using all the available routes: responding to adverts, using recruiters/job agencies, and having the network skills to access the 40% of UK jobs that go through unadvertised sources.
Ultimately, it's about selling your skills into organisations you want to work for to get a job you enjoy and that rewards you in the way you'll want.
Key Learning Outcomes
- Know how to create different styles of CV (e.g. for a similar role, for career change)
- Have skills to access the whole job market
- Be able to grow and use your online and offline network to achieve career success
