About this download

This guide is designed to help you stand out from the crowd when looking for that all-important first job after leaving education.  From CV and cover letter advice to tips on how to do well at interview, it will give you advice on how to make the most of your job-seeking process and present yourself to employers in the best possible light.

The guide will help you create a CV that will allow you to stand out from the crowd when applying for jobs, and also increase your chances of securing that all-important interview.  Unlike many other CV sites and guides that currently exist, this one will encourage you to create a CV in your own style, showing employers yourself as an individual with your particular skills, knowledge and experience. 

The guide also contains advice on writing effective cover letters, including what information you should include, what you can afford to leave out, and what makes them so important to potential employers. 

Finally, it has advice on what you should consider at the interview stage in order to present yourself in the most professional way possible and maximise your chances of being offered the job you want.
