Write a good CV
A well-composed CV is a good and important basis in looking for a job. Start working on your CV while you are still studying, by finding a good CV template and adding content to it as you go along. By working on your CV, you practise describing your expertise and seeing which of your experiences to highlight when applying for different jobs.
Describe your expertise and experiences
In your CV, it is important that you clearly highlight your expertise and tell potential employers what you can contribute. Why should they employ you, in particular? What experiences do you have that are relevant to the position? In addition to your subject knowledge, you may have several generic skills that employers value highly. These skills could be managing projects, organising events, collaborating with others or presenting results. Highlight the expertise that is relevant to the position you are applying for. If you also have relevant professional experience, you should highlight it at the top of your CV.
Describe your education
Once you have listed your qualifications and how you can help your potential employer, you should describe your education. There are studies showing that the significance of the applicant’s degree only makes up a small part of the employer’s total assessment when employing someone. At the same time, a degree may be a requirement to be considered for many positions. It is therefore a good idea for you to obtain your degree certificate and mention it in your CV.
Get input on your CV
When you have completed your CV and your personal cover letter, it can be a good idea to ask for input from people in professional life. They can help you to see your CV from the perspective of an employer.
