CVs and Covering Letters

Graduate zone cv

If you're ready to start applying for jobs you'll need to know how to craft a solid CV and covering letter. Not all application processes will require these, but often a CV and covering letter are your first chance to sell yourself to an employer. You can find some tips and resources on writing and tailoring a CV and covering letter here. You can also drop-in to chat to an adviser or book yourself a Graduate Zone appointment here


Graduate zone applications

Some jobs require you to complete an application form of some kind along with or instead of a CV and covering letter. For a successful application you need to be able to effectively demonstrate your skills and competencies, and you can find help to get you started here. You can also drop-in to chat to an adviser or book yourself a Graduate Zone appointment.


Graduate zone interviews

Interviews usually the final stage of a job application process, and they can often be the most nerve racking! We can help make the whole process a little easier for you with plenty of written guidance and videos, as well as one-to-one advice and support via Graduate Zone appointments.
