Highlight
examples of
your main
achievements
showing what
you learnt.
Match the
skills you
learnt to the
job for which
you are
applying.
Try to give
measurable
achievements
that prove the
quality of the
work you
achieved, eg:
add numbers
and
quantities to
show how
fast and
efficiently you
worked and
how you dealt
with
challenges
such as multitasking and
deadlines.
Give dates,
employer’s
name and key
duties you
performed.
Remember to
use the same
chronological
order in all
sections, ie the
most recent
information
first.
Use two referees and check in advance they are willing to be a referee. Ideally for part time jobs use someone you
have worked or volunteered for. Possibilities also include an academic referee from your course. You could also use
a family friend or neighbour who knows you well. If you use a person living overseas, include their email and/or fax as
telephoning is expensive! If you are worried that your UK lecturers do not know you well enough, when you ask them
to be your referee, give them a list of the strengths you would like them be aware of.
If you do not have space to add in referees’ details, simply write: ‘Available upon request’
Don’t just list
your activities –
give some
indication of
what you
achieved or
positions of
responsibility
you have had.
Unpaid work
experience and
community
activities can be
listed in the work
experience
section.
In the UK, work
does not have to
be paid to be
called ‘work’ and
employers
appreciate the
value of your
skills and
experience
developed
through
volunteering.
