Curriculum

Section 1: Course Introduction
07:07

This is very much an introductory lecture. The course objectives are laid out, along with an outlining of the format of the course. There is an emphasising of the significance of your CV, and a stressing of the importance of having a high quality CV when applying for a new job.

08:49

It really cannot be overstated how important it is that your CV look clean and professional. The key questions of Why make a CV look professional, and how to make a CV look professional are addressed here. Some of this stuff may seem obvious, but I needs to be said, and even a seasoned CV writer may stand to learn something here.

Section 2: Building your CV
09:39

In this lecture I guide you through the first steps of writing out our CV, talking you through the 'Personal details' and 'Education' sections, giving tips on formatting and content.

16:36

In this lecture, we cover what is probably the most important section of any CV - the work experience section. Here I give clear guidelines for use of language, formatting and other hints and tips to help you produce your own outstanding CV.

13:41

lecture five is centred on the importance of a quality personal statement. Once again, practical tips are given for this. An example personal statement is also provided within the lecture, in order to more fully outline how the practical tips can be applied in the real world.

06:14

the final sections of a quality CV are covered here, including references, and more information. As always, this lecture contains real world practical advice and tips on how to achieve this.

Section 3: Conclusion
05:38

in this concluding lecture, we recap on the previous teachings briefly and wrap up the teaching series.

Instructor Biography

Blair Grove, Online Learning Center

I have worked in recruitment for many years, helping some major companies here in the UK to find some truly exceptional people. Over those years I have amassed a wealth of knowledge and experience which I want to share over a range of courses I am currently developing.

I am an educator by nature and am looking to fulfil a long held desire to teach and instruct. I think that Udemy is the place where I want to base my operations. Writing books is all well and good, but video instruction feels much more intimate, much more personal. I love this medium as much as I love my field of expertise.
