Make your CV unique with ANGLOVILLE
The job market is only getting more competitive. It seems that even entry-level jobs are harder to get these days, as employers are expecting from prospective candidates than ever before. One thing that hasn’t changed, however, is the importance of your CV.
This is often one of the first things a prospective employer will see when you apply for a job. A good CV will get you in the door for an interview, and increase your chances of landing your dream job! A poor CV will see you sitting around watching your inbox and making little progress.
So, what do you need for a good CV and how can Angloville make yours stand out? Keep reading to find out!
How to build a CV?
Your CV, or curriculum vitae, is a document that shows your history of employment, education, and summarises the skills and qualities you would bring to a position.
Building a good CV requires you to build relevant qualifications and experience for a role, so you can demonstrate you have the knowledge and skills to perform at least some of the required tasks.
Research your dream job, and all the necessary qualifications required and organise to get any that you haven’t received already. This will be the foundation of your CV.
Why is volunteering important?
As we’ve mentioned, getting all the necessary qualifications is important. However, you won’t be the only person who has these items on your CV. This means you need to not only have the needed qualifications, but other items on your CV to help you stand out.
Volunteering looks great on any CV. It shows that you are able to find time to give back to your community whilst also working towards your own goal. It shows that you’re generous, caring, and willing to work for something bigger than yourself – without financial reward.
Angloville can help you with enhancing your CV. We train over 3000 English Mentors every year. You can be one of them and benefit from our free international exchange programme. Contact us!
