Stand out and compete with a CV that is targeted to the job you are applying for and highlights your relevant skills and achievements. The format of CVs varies widely depending on the job and sector you are applying for, but you must always make sure it is as succinct and clear as possible - whether you are applying for a part-time job or a competitive graduate role.

How we can help

Video CVs

In some sectors a video CV can help you stand out from the crowd, if done well. It gives you the chance to enhance your application by showing an employer your personality and creativity, but note that body language and presentation skills are really important with this type of CV.

Contact us if this is something you are considering, and see the Prospects guide to video CVs for more information.

Online CVs

Many employers now expect applicants to have a professional online presence through a LinkedIn profile. An effective LinkedIn profile can be so much more than just an online CV. See LinkedIn for Students for help on building your CV.
