Jobseekers have a chance to get advice on preparing their CV at a special event at Hucknall Library.

The South Street library will hold the workshop on Thursday 5th September between 3.30pm and 5.30pm.

The event, which is organised by Nottinghamshire County Council, is free of charge and open to anyone currently looking for a job.

Those attending will learn what a CV is, the importance it plays when finding a job, how to get a CV started or updated and what information employers are looking for.

Coun Diana Meale, chair of economic development at Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “Employers will often see your CV before they see you, so it is absolutely vital that you create a favourable impression and include the right information.

“Many of the people who come to our work clubs have limited experience of preparing a CV, either because they’ve not worked much in the past or have recently lost a long-term job and are out of touch with what makes a good CV.

“Regardless of how long you’ve been unemployed, I’d urge anyone looking for work in the Hucknall area to attend this event and access the free support the work club can provide on a regular basis.”

Hucknall Work Club meets every Thursday (3.30pm-5.30pm) at Hucknall Library.

The club gives people the chance to meet others looking for work, build new contacts, share job hunting experiences and get advice on job searches, job applications, interview techniques, CVs, volunteering and training opportunities.

In addition to the regular sessions, special events like the CV workshop take place from time to time, including guest speakers from local employers and confidence building workshops.
