> Synopsis:

Writing a good CV can be one of the toughest challenges of job hunting so it's crucial to prepare and tailor your CV to convince a recruiter (and your potential employer) that you have the right skills and knowledge for the job.

Once you have secured an interview, it does not end there. Good interview preparation is essential to a successful job interview and there are ways in which you can prepare and best sell your skills and experience.

Our presentation will cover (but won't be limited to):

  • Why is it important to spend quality time on putting together your CV and what should be highlighted?
  • What do employers look for when shortlisting?
  • How to start off your preparation for an interview?
  • How to best sell your skills set and experience and how to tackle a few common interview questions.
