This is Sarah.

Picture of Sarah

She has recently graduated and is hoping to get a job in human resources. In this seminar, you have the opportunity to find out a bit more about Sarah. She's beginning to think about what she might put in her CV. You can see the advice she's getting, you can decide what you think best fits each section of her CV, and at the same time you can be starting to build up the material for your own CV.

Your CV is a very important document. Along with the covering letter, it is the first contact you make with an employer. If the CV doesn't make a positive impression, it will also almost certainly be the last contact with that employer! So it's worth spending time on it.

Your CV is an individual record and a personal description. The advice, guidelines and sample CVs in this seminar are not designed to be followed slavishly but you will learn some very solid basic rules and understand the scope for flexibility and creativity. Use it as your own guide to making your CV a document that you can feel happy with because it presents you well to employers.

Here's what one employer has said:

'Writing your CV is a good way of making you think about your skills, achievements and interests, preparation which will be critical to your success when applying for any job, by whatever application method.' (Keith Dugdale, Director, National Graduate Recruitment, KPMG)

So, let's find out a bit more about Sarah
