People looking at CV writing should not take a one-size-fits-all approach when applying for their jobs.
That is according to Elizabeth Bacchus, founder of The Successful CV Company (thesuccessfulcv.com) and a leading career coach and writer, who added that people will need to tailor their CVs to the roles they are looking for.
She added that graduates should look at any initiative they have been involved in and put that on their CV as they will have had limited work experience.
However, the main point is not to send the same CV for every different job role somebody applies for, Ms Bacchus added.
"The other important thing is to provide measurable examples. So it is not good enough to say that they are a team player – they could say they have gained excellent team skills by working within a particular project or a sports team, but they need to provide measurable examples," she explained.
It comes after the government announced that it will be investing £20 million into manufacturing, renewable energy and healthcare to help drive growth and create new jobs.
