The most important thing to say about LinkedIn is that should look like a CV but not read like one. It should detail all of your experience, interests, special projects, and education, but it should always read like you're speaking to the person viewing your profile.
Today I sat down with Sarah Holmes of Elite-HR to talk about her experience in school. Everyone goes through life with different strengths and skills, and sometimes it can take us a while to identify what ours are!
Here’s Sarah’s story:
So what does getting a job involve?
Firstly you’ve got your CV, a cover letter, and a list of companies or jobs you’d love to apply for.
There’s a lot of great advice out there on what to include on your CV, what not to write about, and how to lay it all out.
We’ve included a couple of CV examples that can give you a great starting point – one that is nice and simple, and one with a bit of colour!
Like your CV, your cover letter should show off your personality! You’ll want to stand out from the crowd from the word go, so inject a bit of creative flair and energy to what you’ve written.
