Currently i have the one from back in the day with a small sattement about me, Education going back to GCSEs and a section on volunteering/ skills although the volunterring stuff now years later seems irrelaevant or at least maybe streamlined.

Hey there,

As you're preparing to apply for jobs over the summer, it's great that you're thinking about updating your CV!

When updating your CV, consider focusing on relevant experiences and skills that align with the positions you're applying for. While volunteering experience is valuable, it's okay to streamline or prioritise other sections if they're more relevant to your current career goals.

You might want to highlight your academic achievements, relevant coursework, projects, internships, and any relevant work experience. Tailoring your CV to each job application and emphasising key skills and accomplishments can help you stand out to potential employers.

At the University of Salford, we have a dedicated careers service that offers support with CV writing, mock interviews, and more, which can be incredibly helpful in securing a job. Don't hesitate to reach out to your university's careers service or explore similar resources to get personalised guidance and feedback on your CV.

Best of luck with your job applications!

Best Regards,
Arslan University of Salford Student Representative
