Spring clean your CV

Posted on Career planning, CVs and applications, Jobs, internships and work experience

The days are getting longer and Spring is in the air, so what better time to dust off your CV to review your skills, make that fresh start or take the next step in your career? We’ve got everything you need. An OU student recently said about our CV support:

My adviser was brilliant. She took the time to go over my CV, talk though possible changes and ideas about how to move forward, then sent me an email detailing all we had talked about. I now feel much more confident about taking the next step.

Give your CV a make-over

Whether your old CV needs reviving or you’ve never created one before here’s how the Abintegro CV builder tool can help you:

Make your CV a hit

Join OU Career Consultants and fellow OU students in our live workshop CV miss to CV hit on 23 April to learn how to tailor your CV so it ends on the recruiter’s ‘yes’ pile. An OU student said about our last CV workshop:

This was a really useful session. Alison and Chan were a great team and covered such valuable ground. I got a lot out of it.

Polish up your CV

Recruiters spend less than 30 seconds deciding whether to read a CV. Our webinar Five seconds for your CV to make its mark will show you how to make your CV stand out for all the right reasons. You can also review your CV from a recruiter’s perspective with our CV checklist.

Bring in the team

If you’re still not sure your CV is quite there and you’d like us to look over it, contact Careers and Employability Services. One student recently said about the service:

I thought the feedback I received on my CV was really detailed and considered and this encouraged me to put time and effort into making it better.
