CV Coach


 
CV Coach
by Aspect Resourcing Partners
Free
Available for iOS mobile platform
CV coach is an appropriate starting point app to provide hand holding advice whilst preparing your CV on a PC/Mac.  Demonstrates why you need certain sections on your CV.   An app I recommend to my first year students to help them to get started preparing their CV for placement applications.

However note that the advice on Reference on Request is only appropriately when you are further up the career chain, at the start of career you are competing with 100s if not 1000s just creates another hurdle that recruitment staff have to jump will not adhere you to them, you are adding work to their day.

Also, note that the Interests and Hobbies section at the start of your career this need to be more descriptive than a list, the type of interests to show are those that you can describe your involvement in to show off, imply and demonstrate in practice your employability skills in action, for example football referee, Youth Worker, Active Member of University Sport or Society or Charity Fund Raising show leadership to entrepreneurship.
