Get your CV fighting fit

A CV (or resumé) is a living document. The way you described your skills and employment history five years ago is by no means the way you should do it now, and it’s generally accepted that it’s best to adjust your CV to suit whatever job you’re applying for.

Which is all well and good but how do you do that?

If you think your CV could use some sprucing, or if you need some help with writing a cover letter then get to Linwood Library during September and October for a free course run by tutors from Hagley Adult Literacy Centre.

Over the course of five weeks you will be armed with:

  • Group of young people at the libraryjob search skills
  • an understanding of job search terminology
  • a CV tailored to your own experience and skills
  • a generic cover letter you can use as a template for future job applications.

The CV and cover letter classes run for five Thursdays 12.30-2pm, from 17thSeptember to 15th October.

This class is free to attend but to be guaranteed a place booking is recommended. For bookings and more information, please contact us on 941 7923 or email library@ccc.govt.nz.
