CVs often form part of a job application or when applying to postgraduate study. It's a good idea to draft a CV which you can then refine and tailor for specific roles you want to apply for.

CV support workshops

We frequently run CV workshops during term-time which you can book on to via CareerHub.

Resources and templates

There are a number of resources and templates available on CareerHub+ to help you create a great CV and develop your own taking inspiration from one of the templates available on CareerHub+ CV360.

Use our resources to help you structure the full extent of your skills and experience and sell yourself in a way that does you justice. It is important to remember that a CV is a very personal and individual document and these CV templates are intended as examples only. 

Get feedback on your CV

Once you've created your CV, you can test it out using our unique tool, CV360 and get instant detailed feedback. This is a unique tool developed for Essex students allowing you to test your CV against Applicant Tracking System (ATS) software, commonly used by job boards, CV databases and large organisations to analyse applications even before a human may see it.
