At Vic Careers we see many poor quality or instantly forgettable CVs and letters during dropin and this makes us happy. Why? Because we prefer to see an unsuccessful CV before the employer does! We want you to look great to a prospective employer and coming to see us communicates to us that you are serious about your job search and care enough to want to create products of good quality that market you effectively to your audience. A poor job application reflects badly on you and unfortunately on the university too. It wastes your time and even worse, that of the employer.
Creating an impressive CV and cover letter takes time. At Vic Careers we have given a lot of thought to providing resources for you. These include the Resume Builder tool on CareerHub, workshops, free publications, reference books and the free CV checking service. Use them!
