Creative CV Guide

On Thursday 30th October, 09.15 – 12.15 we will be joined by Julie Porter from the University’s Careers Service. 

She will deliver a session that covers networking, approaching companies, tailoring CV’s and cover letters and the actions students need to take in applying for jobs in the creative industry.

We will examine some examples of creative CV’s, including printed, digital and online CV’s.

Students need to bring a copy of their CV(s) and a draft approach or cover letter (written to a specific company or  job application). Feedback will be given to all students on how to improve this: This feedback should be reflected in your Learning Journals.

Any students who miss this session are required to visit the Careers Service another time in the Pierson Building for one of thei drop-in ‘CV Surgery’ sessions.

All of the careers service resources can also be found online here:
