CV360

On MyCDES+ (career information and job search platform) you can find CV360, an online tool where you can get feedback and tips on how to improve your CV. It is scored against more than 50 checks and you will get feedback on your presentation, structure, content and language.

This CV360 check is just the first step. The second step is to get your CV reviewed by a person. No matter what your CV360 score is, please come and see us in the Business School Careers Centre (drop-in or appointment).

When you come and see us it would be great if you could bring your report with you. And remember we have workshops on topics such as CVs, cover letters and LinkedIn.
