C.V writing for year 13 at the Hundred of Hoo Academy
Year 13 students at the Hundred of Hoo Academy participated in a C.V workshop with recruitment professional , Daniel Goodwin of Pearson Whiffin.
Having spent class time the previous week on preparation for the workshop, each student brought along their C.V and had the opportunity to hone these essential skills supporting the students to create outstanding documents.
Beginning with discussing what should appear on a C.V and indeed, what should not, students responded well to advice which emphasised the importance of clearly selling their achievements.
Students then looked at sample C.Vs discussing what worked- and what did not! This included not only content, but the layout.
The hour and a half workshop ended with students making notes on how they should update their own C.V’s in readiness for when they will need them.
Sincere thanks to Dan for coming to The Hundred of Hoo and we look forward to welcoming him again to work with year 12 next.
