CV Workshop on Wednesday, 13th June, 10am – 12pm, Location TBC

This popular workshop takes you through how to create the best CV you can. Your CV is your ultimate marketing tool to get you noticed. Bearing in mind that the average time spent looking at your CV is around 30 seconds, you need to make sure:

  • It creates the “hook” for the employer to be interested;
  • Leaves the employer wanting more so they have to progress you to the interview stage.
  • Makes you stand out from the crowd
  • Gives you a perfect script for expanding on at interview

 

We’ll look at the best CV for you and discuss a skills based CV. The workshop is interactive, good fun and there is no preparation required, just a willingness to participate and a copy of your latest CV (in whatever state).

Interview Skills on Tuesday 26th June, 1pm – 2:30pm, Location TBC

This workshop looks at the different types of interview you might expect and how best to prepare for them. Interviews are stressful enough and being prepared is the key to successfully getting through to the next stage. We’ll share some hints and tips as well as some questions you might want to consider in advance. It’s interactive, fun and a good way to meet other Ten2Two members in a similar situation who always have great tips to share from their own experiences.
