Issue 2: Your CV
Your CV is a crucial apart of your job search. So often, people forget to update their CV before applying for jobs, therefore it is not an adequate reflection of all their skills and abilities. Here is a simple check list for updating your CV and ensuring that your potential employer forms the best impression of you. Your CV is your first contact with an employer, therefore, it makes sense that you want this to be favourable in order to ensure you secure an interview and a chance to impress your potential employer even further.
How does your completed CV measure up against this checklist?
Once you have updated your CV, it is time to put it out there for employers to consider. Look at the opportunities that are available and consider what would interest you. You can also load your CV up onto AgCareers.com so that employers may browse through it and maybe an opportunity will find you. There are plenty of graduate programmes and jobs available, so get applying!
