In this course, you will learn how to position yourself for formal employment and how to grow your career. The course includes handy worksheets for each lesson as well as demonstrations of the Novoresume CV tool and LinkedIn. Whether you are newly qualified, unemployed, moving jobs or returning to work after a break, this course will teach you the techniques you will need.

You can have the same breakthrough in your working life, get into the company you want and have the career start that gives you the greatest advantage. I’ve seen thousands of CVs in my career and I’ve interviewed hundreds of people. There are definitely some things you can do that will help you to stand out. The global coronavirus pandemic of 2020 has affected many economies around the world and it has become even tougher to get formal employment; you will need to ensure you have every skill you need to give you the greatest advantage.
