CV / LinkedIn Profile Clinic

A team of PhD students, who are fully trained CV Reviewers, offer a weekly clinic to review your CV, cover letter or LinkedIn profile. This is a 15 minute meeting with a CV Reviewer who will review one document and give you feedback.

This service is ideal if you want a quick general review of the layout and content of one of these documents and tips on how to target your CV for specific roles.

Usage is restricted to once a month during busy periods.

During the COVID-19 period CV/LinkedIn clinics are being delivered remotely with Microsoft Teams App. It is necessary to download the MS Teams desktop app -  https://teams.microsoft.com/downloads to review your digital CV, Cover Letter or LinkedIn Profile.
