What should your CV include?

How should your CV be presented?
Your CV is a document that shows how your profile matches the employers needs without being too detailed.

It is a living document – it should be updated every time you do something.

CV writing is an important skill to learn, as it will aid you in successfully finding employment throughout your working life.

A CV is your first point of contact with an employer. From the employer's perspective, it's the only available information with which to assess your skills and suitability for a job.

Your CV has to be tailored for that employer. All jobs are different, and so are all employers. It's important that Your CV speaks directly to the job, addresses criteria, and above all else is relevant to the position.

Probably the most difficult steps are actually starting to look for a work placement and more importantly knowing where to look.
Where to look...

The Careers Centre on the 7th Floor Summer Row, or email jobshop@ucb.ac.uk
Newspapers all have jobs sections. Local newspapers will have a jobs paper on a certain night, as will national newspapers. Newspapers are also good for getting contact information about companies
There are also dedicated websites designed to help people find a work placement. Log onto www.prospects.ac.uk and follow the links to the National Council for Work Experience page
Careers and Connexions centres
Think about the feasibility of your work experience:
Job roles/Responsibilities
What will you achieve from your placement
Hours/Days you will be working

Carefully consider any barriers that may impact your work experience!

Plan for your work experience
Have an aim - make sure you work experience has a point!
i.e. Undertaking 20+ hours of football coaching
Gaining and understanding of planning and delivering PE lessons

This will help you stay motivated and focused, it may also mean you can dictate some of the job roles you do during your work experience

You do not have to do all 50 hours in the same place!

Sometimes it may be better to split your hours over 2 or 3 placements to enhance your experience
Set Goals!
Each week set small achievable goals for yourself
Again this will help you stay motivated and ensure you get what you want from your work experience!
Tailor your CV to the job application, making sure you include relevant skills and experience that are being asked of you.
Make sure you promote yourself, make sure you include experience that shows all your skills that are relevant to the application.
