CV and Cover Letter Writing Workshop 

Have you ever wondered why you are not invited to that job interview you put so much effort in during the application phase? Did the HR receive your application? What details do they look for to determine who should be shortlisted for interview? 

As an entrepreneur and employer, I have reviewed thousands of cover letters and CVs and have come to the conclusion that most graduates and applicants do not understand what the difference between a CV and Resume' is; or when to use either. Yes! They are different. There are do's and don'ts in writing a CV and a resume'. There are also myths surrounding how to approach a prospective employer about your job options.

You do not necessarily need a professional to review your CV or Resume' for you. How long will you keep at it? Join us in this one day hands-on seminar to review your CV or Resume', gain in-depth understanding of the interview process, how to develop a job search strategy, the interview process and so much more.

Target Audience : Recent Graduates, Youth Corpers and Job seekers.
