About CV Workshop

** Bring a paper copy of your CV with you and Gordon will provide a quick mini-review and some personalised suggestions. **

Formats and content have both changed in recent years, leaving many people with an out-of-date CV. So updating a CV is no longer just a matter of adding your most recent professional experience or explaining a recent career gap.

If the thought of updating your CV fills you with dread, or if you have questions about what is expected in a best-practice CV, this workshop will help. It is designed to be useful for people at all stages - whether you are a graduate, ready to apply for your next role (or a promotion) or are simply considering a return to work.

Join us for this informative 90-minute, small group workshop in Piece West Regent Street, where, using the latest industry insights, Gordon Rennie will explain:

- the basics for current best-practice CVs, including the essential sections, ideal length and format

- how to make your CV work harder for you

- how to address a career break (if you have one)

- how Applicant Tracking Systems (or software 'spiders') work and the importance of keywords

- the importance of consistency between your CV and LinkedIn and other social media networks.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for CV Workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
