Are you considering a career in the charity sector? Unsure how to write an effective CV and covering letter that really communicate your passion and motivations? Want to know what charity employers are really looking for at this first stage of the selection process?
On Monday 9th June 2014, 1-2pm we’re bringing together a small panel of charity employers to ask them what they look for in CVs and covering letters and how those looking to work in the charity sector can make the most of their skills and experience on paper. As part of this discussion we’ll be asking panellists to critique a small selection of genuine CVs and covering letters submitted to us by University of London students and recent graduates.
We’ll be broadcasting this discussion live via a FREE webinar – participants will be able to view the CVs on screen and listen to the accompanying discussion, as well as having the chance to put their own questions to the panel. Our panel of charity employers will include James Wilson, Service Manager at British Red Cross and Jack Lewars, Director of Operations at School of Hard Knocks, with more names to be confirmed.
To take advantage of this unique opportunity, click here to reserve your place on this webinar. Places are limited and expected to fill quickly so early booking is advised.
If you’d like to submit a CV and covering letter for feedback in the webinar please send it by email to Anne.email@example.com by 9am on Friday 30th May, and include a brief summary of the position or type of organisation to which your CV and letter are targeted. All CVs and letters will be anonymised and we can’t promise to feature all those we receive.
