|Useful tips for preparing your CV|
Before you start writing, spend some time reading the job advertisement carefully, do not rush. Ask yourself whether you have the abilities and skills to undertake the job. What would make you different and oustanding from other candidates? Why would the employer select you? What can you contribute to the organisation? Make a sketch and some brief notes of what you are thinking.
Writing a successful CV will be one of the more challenging pieces of work that you will undertake after or even before graduating. UTM encourage students to start sending in job applications + CVs before they graduate. The CV will be your marketing document and must be written in a such a way that it addresses the needs of the employer. It must convince the employer that you have the potential to carry out the roles and responsibilities of the job applied for and for this reason alone, it must create interest and persuade the employer to call you for an interview.
