Writing your CV or Resume – Sydney Course

If you are looking for a job, then you will need to create or update your CV (Curriculum Vitae) or Resume at some stage. This workshop will teach you how to write a CV or Resume that improves your chances of securing your desired job.

We will cover the basic principles that apply to a quality CV/Resume. This will include both content, presentation and delivery options with reference to real examples. We will also address some of the contentious aspects of a CV/Resume that employers may have different views about.

Each student will walk away with an updated draft of their own CV/Resume. There are no prerequisites required – but it would be helpful if each student brings a draft of their current CV/Resume to work on during the workshop.

Macquarie Community College operates from a range of venues across North and Western Sydney. We have campuses in Carlingford, Chatswood, Mt Druitt, Richmond and many more. Enrol today or enquire now!
