Your CV and Cover Letter

Many jobs will want you to submit a CV and cover letter so that they can see what experience you have.

It’s really important that you work hard on your CV – it is your own personal shop window! Spelling mistakes and other errors won’t make you look great, so it’s worth having a friend

Also, remember to personalise your cover letter for every job you apply for so that an employer knows you really want to work for them.
