How to write cv and cover letter?Watch
I am in sixth form I want to do work experience in investment banking I have no experience in finance what so ever so I want to do work experience to have a clear vision of what investment banking really is so I could make up my mind whether to pursue investment banking or not.Can anyone give me subheadings to use or information to include or some sort of tips because I have no idea how to start writing the cv or cover letter.
A greater detail on how to write each section is below.
Make sure every CV is tailored to the job and company you are applying for; make it specific, not generic.
A cover letter is your chance to sell yourself to an employer. Show them why you want this job, explain why the role appealed to you and how it will benefit you and the company. Include skills and previous experience as examples to back up your statements. Make sure you tailor your cover letter to the role and company you apply for. So this could be anything relevant that you've done (coursework, previous work experience, etc..) that could be useful when working in the role.
