Graduate CV Examples

If you are in your last year of University and are looking for a Graduate position then you need to make sure your CV reflects all the hard work that you have done over the past 3 years (or longer depending on the course) and shows how you would like to put the information you have learnt into practice.

Start by listing all the important parts of your degree and what you will take away with you hopefully into your career and think about how you think you will use these skills and outline what you still need to learn.

Remember about your own personal qualities and that of what you have learnt at university, such as, time keeping, working to deadlines, working in a group/team etc, all things that you take for granted but are key factors to an employer.
