The Careers and Employability Service CV Competition is back with more opportunities for students to win work experience opportunities with 9 local organisations. This year the majority of vacancies are funded at £300 per week! Competition entry is open to all students. Details of the competition are available on the webpage http://www.kent.ac.uk/ces/cv-competition.html
To be in with a chance of winning all you have to do is send your CV and a covering letter. The organisations will then be sent the CV’s and asked to choose a winner. Confirmed experiences include marketing, event planning, conservation, community arts, curating, archiving and finance. Experiences will last 2 weeks over the summer vacation at a time suitable to the winning students and employers.
Employers were impressed with the applications and winning students from last year’s competition. Students were also very positive about the competition with one of our winners commenting: “It went very well. I had lots of things to do, I met lots of interesting people there, and had the opportunity to handle the water voles and mice, and take care of them which was really fun. It was a great experience.”
The competition is now open and will close on the 28th Feb
