Curriculum Vitae (CV) Writing

A curriculum vitae is a concise summary of your skills, achievements, and interests inside and outside your academic work. Most employers initially spend a very short time scanning your CV. So it must be engaging, conveying the most relevant points about you in a clear, accessible way. The primary challenge is to make it easy for the reader to find exactly what they are looking for. The career services team will guide you on packaging information succinctly, avoiding too much context, excessive detail or unfocused material that will dilute the impact of your most relevant messages

Cover Letters

A cover letter introduces and markets you effectively by complementing your CV. It tells your story by highlighting your relevant strengths and motivation for the person and organisation you are writing to, rather than listing all the things that can already be seen on your CV. You can use it to align yourself with the organisation’s strengths, values and culture, and highlight in a targeted way your knowledge and strongest, most relevant skills for the position. The Career services team will advise you on how to prepare a cover letter demonstrating how you fit the job criteria.

Psychometric Tests

Psychometric tests are now a common part of the assessment of job applicants. Psychometric tests are used to assess a number of attributes. Some evaluate your reasoning abilities and skills, whereas others look at your preferences and likely responses or judgements in different situations. The Career services team will advise you on how to prepare for the psychometric tests.

Careers Fairs

Careers fairs provide you with the chance to meet employers face-to-face, to learn about current vacancies and opportunities available, and to market yourself to prospective employers.
