    During uni we had an enterprise module which made us to set up our own wee stall. We had to make a business plan, do our finances, arrange stall times ect but where do I put that in my CV? Under education? Experience? or a different heading altogether

    Hi Sara,

    I would only put this in your CV if you think it will be relevant to the post, which i presume it is.

    It all depends on how you have designed your CV on where you put this information. You could include a statement about it in the personal statement at the top of your CV as this will be one of the first things an employer would read. Make it a short and snappy sentence that states what you did and what the outcome was.

    I would not put this in with education.

    You could have a section in your CV for experience or experience and achievements. If you think this experience would be important to the role you are applying for, try and put it near the top. If your CV does not get the recruiters attention then they will not bother reading the rest.
