CV Writing Workshop


The workshop aims to support and prepare the students to enter the work industry with confidence. A key step in their employment journey is to understand how to demonstrate their skills, interests and experience to create an impactful CV to showcase them. Students will understand the purpose and function of a CV, including what information it needs to include, and how best to organize that information. We will conduct activities that will help students identify the skills and experience they already have, while teaching them how to communicate their abilities in a clear, compelling way.

This workshop will support students develop a CV, and is also suitable for students who already have a CV; they can use these activities as inspiration to improve it.
