Don’t Let Your Dreams Pass You By: Writing an Effective School Leaver CV

As a school leaver, you may be feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of writing your first CV. After all, it’s the document that will help you land your dream job and get your career off to a great start. But don’t worry – writing an effective school leaver CV is easier than you think. Here are some tips to help you get started.

Know What to Include

Your CV should include all the relevant information about your education, skills, and experience. Start with a brief introduction that outlines who you are and what you’re looking for in a job. Then list any qualifications or certifications you have, such as GCSEs or A-Levels. If you have any work experience, include details of this too. Finally, list any skills or hobbies that could be relevant to the job you’re applying for.

Keep It Concise

Your CV should be no more than two pages long – employers don’t want to read through pages of information about your life story. Make sure each section is concise and only includes the most important information. Avoid using overly complicated language and keep sentences short and to the point.

Proofread Carefully

Once you’ve finished writing your CV, it’s important to proofread it carefully before sending it off to potential employers. Check for any spelling or grammar mistakes and make sure all the information is accurate and up-to-date. Ask a friend or family member to read over it too – they may spot something that you missed.

Writing an effective school leaver CV doesn’t have to be difficult – just remember to include all the relevant information, keep it concise, and proofread carefully before sending it off. With these tips in mind, you can create a CV that will help you stand out from the crowd and get one step closer to achieving your career goals.
