Get the job you want
When you turn your mind to finding a job either for the summer or as a permanent career, it's a real step change from the focus on getting reports, papers or dissertations completed. That said, the pressure can feel just as intense in a different sort of way.
Just knowing there will be lots of students, graduates and other job seekers out there all potentially going for the same jobs makes it crucial to get yourself into a place where you will be the best applicant and get the job you want.
Getting into a place of comfort in being a great applicant takes a bit of practice and Careerbite can take you through some helpful, simple steps to set you up for success.

Use a CV template that is easy to follow and easy to fill in so you give any prospective employer the best first impression. There is a simple template for Business to download from Careerbite for free, plus templates for Creatives, Finance and Law.
Make sure you describe your best strengths in your personal profile, the first paragraph which kicks off your CV.
