To support you while schools and colleges are closed and some businesses are working from home, the National Literacy Trust have put together a checklist of activities and resources that will boost your skills and help you in your next steps. The first thing they are asking you to do is to review and send them your CV.
This week we’re challenging you to write your CV and send it to us for feedback. A killer CV can boost your career and help you achieve your dreams, but it can be hard to know how to get started. Don’t worry: our industry experts are here to help! We’ve also got plenty of tips for you on how to write a CV that will get you noticed by employers.
