CV & INTERVIEW WORKSHOP: The One-Day Next Steps Programme

You’ve found your dream job – the one that will change EVERYTHING.  


Now you just have to get hired.  


You know you have the experience, the training and the qualifications, but that isn’t always enough to get the job. Is your CV up to scratch? Could your interview skills do with a bit of polish?

Our one-day Next Steps Programme will give you the confidence and skills to secure that coveted contract.

 The course is led by two expert tutors – one experienced recruitment consultant and one communications specialist – and includes a practical networking lunch.

Topics include:

  • Making your CV stand out: structure, layout, wording, injecting personality
  • Covering letters: are they necessary today and, if so, how do I write one?
  • Working with recruiters – how to get the best from them
  • Honing your interview skills, with on-camera practice and feedback, and discussions covering phone, in-person and video interviews.
  • Understanding company culture and why this is crucial at the interview stage
  • Understanding your personal ‘brand’ and managing your digital presence to promote and support it
  • Confident and effective networking

Participants will receive immediate feedback on their interview style as well as detailed notes on their CVs. Participants are also welcome to submit their CVs for a one-off, post-workshop review up to a month after the course
