CV Clinic

CV Clinic

With increased competition for graduate jobs, your CV may now compete with up to 200 others per vacancy. You never get a second chance to make a first impression so it is essential you ensure your CV stands out from the crowd and helps you secure that all-important interview! 


Specialists from The Write Stuff will be on hand in the CV Clinic at the National Graduate Recruitment Exhibition to give you one-to-one advice on your CV. They will make sure you have avoided all the classic mistakes and have created a CV that highlights all your skills that employers are looking for.

In preparation for taking your CV to the CV Clinic here are some of our 
top tips:

  • Be clear and concise and only include relevant information. An an employer is unlikely to pick up a CV that is pages and pages long - try and keep your CV down to two sides of A4
  • List the most important information first, such as education and your work experience
  • Make sure you can account for any chronological gaps in your CV to avoid any awkward questions at the interview stage
  • Remember that you learn transferable skills in lots of different areas of your life. If you were a keen sportsman/woman at university or ran a society, include this on your CV as it will impress a potential employer 
  • Ask someone to proofread your CV for you. Spelling mistakes and grammatical errors make you look lazy
  • Use a sensible email address - will not give a professional reflection of yourself!
