CV Checking with #AskKath!
ONLINE: 19 May 2021, various appointment times available
We know that writing a CV is difficult; most of us don’t like talking about ourselves and don’t know where to start! Why not send yours to Kath for some advice on how to tailor it to your subject or career area?
You can book a 20 minute appointment for Wednesday 19 May to have your CV checked or another date that is convenient for you.
Just visit the Careers webpage to book.
Apply to be a Bunny Minder!
ONLINE AND AT CATALYST: 19 May 2021, all day
For one day only the Careers team is taking applications for the exclusive Edge Hill Bunny Minder position! Are you energetic? Can you count fast moving objects? Do you like lettuce? Tweet @ehucareers with a couple of sentences about why you think you would be a good fit for the job, and you could be the winner!
(Please note that this is a competition and Careers do not actually need a bunny minder – but they will give you a nice goody bag if you are picked as their favourite!)
Tweet your submissions to @ehucareers or submit them in person at the Let’s Talk Careers event.
