Check 8 Tips That Can Boost Your CV…With so many students and graduates on the job hunt, you need to do whatever you can to make sure you stand out from the crowd and be employable to future employers.

Here are some tips to help you achieve that:

  1. Get a Part time Job

Part- time jobs are great experiences in the working world, that would make you look more impressive to your future employers.Having previous employment (even if it’s in a completely unrelated field) demonstrates that you know how things work outside the “university world”.

  1. Take on a Leading Role in a Society or Club

True, simply being a member of your University’s football team for example, probably will not give your CV much of an edge over your peers, but taking on a leadership role within the organization certainly will. From it, you will gain valuable skills that are bound to impress potential employers.

  1. Volunteer

Participate in volunteer work! Not only is volunteering a rewarding experience but it also makes your CV stand out. It will help you gain important experiences and show that you care about improving the lives of others. Most universities, advertise volunteering opportunities online, so take a look and get involved!

  1. Make Contacts

It’s never too early to start making industry contacts. Your lecturers/ professors could be a great resource in terms of helping you make contact with the outside world.

Your contacts now, would add a glow to your references . You could also get in contact with recent graduates too who may be doing well in this regard.

  1. Learn a New Skill

Use your holiday breaks to learn useful skills that would look good on your CV.  You could choose to sign up for a language course or become an expert in website designing or do learn something else.

  1. Do Research

If you are not yet entirely sure of what you want to end up doing , do some research on a couple of fields you might be interested in.

  1. Be Active on Social Media

Social media is becoming more and more essential, and knowing how to use it, is considered a big plus by employers. Hence, build up a strong social media presence across different platforms and include the links to your accounts in your CV for potential employers to see.

A little advice please: ALWAYS make sure there is nothing on your profiles that you would not want your potential employer to see!

  1. Do Not Forget Your Studies

Having lots of work experience will make you stand out for jobs BUT employers also care about your grade, so do not forget your studies.
