Spring clean your CV

Posted on CVs and applications, Forums and webinars

Spring is in the air and we can see the glimpse of more positive times ahead, so what better time to dust off your CV and review your skills, make that fresh start or take the next step in your career? We’ve got everything you need.

Take your CV to the cleaners

Get your CV spotless with our CV360 tool which uses Artificial Intelligence to score your CV against common checks and Applicant Tracking Systems used by employers. CV360 helps your CV pass this first hurdle, so it ends up in the ‘yes’ pile for that job interview. You’ll get useful tips and advice on how to make improvements. If you don’t have a CV already or want a fresh one, you can create a CV from scratch with CV builder. Find out more in the video below and get started now with CV360 and CV Builder with Abintegro.

Make your CV a hit

Join OU Career Consultants and fellow OU students in our live workshops to learn how to tailor your CV and make it a hit with employers. Workshops are run throughout the year and can be found on the OpportunityHub events page. An OU student said about a recent CV workshop:

Very clear presentation providing focus on what really counts when making a CV. I learnt a lot.

Make your CV shine

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 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.
