As a creative, you’d be wrong in thinking your social media account can serve as a window into your personal and professional identity alone. Yes Instagram has been known as the CV of 2018, but the CV still reigns supreme in the professional sphere no matter what industry you’re in. CV and Cover Letter writing can be one of the most daunting and mundane tasks ever known to man, but it’s worth putting in the effort when applying for the companies you really want to work for.

Join us for a morning of light work and fun at the Workstation, as we take on pain points creative job seekers face when trying to craft a knockout CV and Cover letter.

Learning Outcomes;
Registering for this workshop and clinic is your first step to securing an interview for that dream opportunity you’ve been eyeing. Some of the areas that we’ll be dissecting include the correct CV and Cover Letter formats, how to approach a job or internship listing, the language to use when crafting your CVs and Cover letters and common errors that disqualify applicants when they apply for opportunities.

By attending the CV Clinic you will recieve a one2one diagnosic session of your CV and/Cover Letter, where you will recieve detailed feedback and suggested revisions.
