CV and Cover Letter- A story to be told
What needs to be in a powerful CV? What components should I include in my cover letter? How are the CV and the cover letter linked? Do I need to customize my CV and if so, what should I take into account?
Are these questions familiar to you?
The CV and cover letter are part of your application package. They are your showcase, an opportunity to stand out from the other applicants. In this workshop, we will challenge you to look at a CV and cover letter from the angle of a recruiter. You will learn what should be included in them and how to decide about the information that you provide. Please bring your CV with you to the workshop.
