We’re boosting job applicants’ chances of success with a dynamic new series of YouTube videos that give practical tips on how to write their CVs.
Each short #CareerTips film is presented by Foundation Manager, Nick Elletson, who takes viewers through simple steps to help them impress employers and find the right job.
Starting with the helpful How to write a CV with no work experience, Nick looks at what to include when you have gaps in your work history or no work experience. He highlights information that many jobseekers might not think is relevant, but which could spell success.
Examples include the skillsets that parents can offer, such as timekeeping, team working, organisational skills, leadership and multitasking.
In What to include in your CV, Nick talks about a CV’s content – such as up-to-date contact details; how to order your work education and personal history; and the inclusion of non-academic qualifications and vocational experience.
The third video to date is How to structure your CV. Here, Nick demonstrates how to set out and present the details you need to include. He stresses that the most important consideration is to have a consistency of format in each section.
Nick said: “We’re always looking at ways to give people the training and skills they need to enter the job market or get back into it after an absence. Particular emphasis is on groups who might be excluded, such as young people, single parents, the long-term unemployed and ex-offenders.
“The films provide effective help for those who want to star their CVs or improve existing ones by actually walking them through the best ways to stand out – showing examples as we do so.”
