The Art of a Cover Letter

Created 06/12/2012 16:11 Last updated 29/09/2017 20:31

I graduated six years ago. Yes, that’s right. I have been a graduate twice as long as I was ever a student. But it’s only been in recent years that I finally understood the need for a cover letter. I spent my uni days and early career thinking a cover letter was a bit of a waste of time and pointless repetition of my CV. I would start sentences with the phrase “as you can see on my CV blah blah” or “I’d like to draw your attention to xyz experience” which I now realise was a waste of valuable persuasion space!

Evidencing your skills: the so what principle

Created 06/12/2012 14:57 Last updated 05/10/2017 05:47

The most useful feedback on my first attempt at a graduate CV was “so what?” This pearl of wisdom was given to me rather bluntly by my university careers service. I was rather hoping that they would either tell me my CV was brilliant, or tell me in very specific detail what I had to say to make it brilliant. Instead I got “so what?” So why was this so useful?

Class of 2012? What now?

Created 31/07/2012 17:50 Last updated 25/01/2017 17:22

If you graduated this year no doubt you have been scouring jobs sites and doing plenty of soul searching to work out what (and where) your ideal job is, and the career path you’d like to follow. But how do you make sure you are ready when you finally see it- the prefect job, at the perfect company, that you simply must have!?
