The job market is fiercely competitive and many perfectly credible candidates fail to secure the interviews they deserve simply because their CV is just not providing the information that recruiters and hiring managers are really looking for. The good news is that, if you have the right knowledge, skills and experience, just presenting that information more effectively on your CV can lead to a 50% increase in interviews.
So CIMA’s Grad Club are inviting you to attend our FREE webinar – with a Q&A session at the end – where you will learn how to effectively present yourself via your CV in order to really differentiate you from your competition:
- How to assess whether your current CV is good enough
- How to write an effective CV that will secure more interviews
- Some great tips on how to get experience if you believe you don’t have any – without getting a job!
Join the CIMA Grad Club. Be Inspired. Get Hired.
