More information about CVs and covering letters

If an employer asks for your CV to be submitted online and you don’t have access to the internet, ask at your local library about booking a slot to use a computer. There may also be local courses if you need to brush up your digital skills. If you receive Universal Credit, you can also ask your Work Coach about computer access.

Visit the National Careers Service (external website) for a walkthrough on each stage of compiling a CV and more tips and advice on how to write a good cover letter (external website).
