Did you know that the average employer can spend less than 30 seconds assessing a Curriculum Vitae? Is it true that some employers ignore personal profiles? Should a CV be a life history of everything you’ve ever done? Find out how to present yourself effectively in a UK CV in this interactive session. We’ll simulate a CV sifting exercise allowing you to 'sit in the recruiter's shoes' and assess multiple CVs under time pressure. Understand how to create a strong first impression, keep the reader’s interest and make your evidence ‘relevant’. Whether your focus is exclusively commercial, you are thinking of applying within the public sector, or you are just tweaking your application for that ideal new job, tailoring your CV is a vital skill to master. Sally Brown offers guidance on how to do this as painlessly as possible.

This workshop has been organised exclusively for UCL History of Art students and has a limited number of places. You have to sign up in order to attend. Please bring a draft of your CV with you to the event as the last 30 minutes will be a chance to work on your own CV with Sally.
