Right now I am averaging a first, I am the president of a small charity focused society, and I am about to start working a part-time job as a cashier. I know it's not a lot but I don't think I can handle much more in terms of time commitments.

Oh yea, and I also have a website that has a portfolio of some short stories and poems that I have written. Perhaps that is relevant from a CV perspective?

Sounds like you're doing great things! Having a blog as a student is beneficial in terms of employment and achievements. This can help you showcase your skills, knowledge and passions for a particular topic! @helloblogr on Instagram is where we share tips and tricks to get into blogging

Hey workingalways!

These things sound great!
They definitely demonstrate your ability to manage your time as well as incorporating leadership skills which will be extremely valuable when getting a graduate job after uni
You are also growing your customer service and interpersonal skills - so definitely proving yourself to be a potential strong candidate for any future jobs!

Keep up with the good work!

Hey!

This is all great

How about contributing to your uni's blog? Or creating vlogs for their YouTube or social media takeovers for Instagram? Something where you don't have to commit too much of your time, you can just create something once in a while when you have an idea! You could even start your own blog, write for online magazines, think about becoming a student ambassador and get involved in any events on campus?

It's great to hear you're so enthusiastic to improve your CV

I wish you the very best of luck with your uni experience!
