In a competitive job market, your CV is your first chance to make a good impression on a potential employer! Even if you are the perfect candidate for the job, if your CV has omissions, errors or an unprofessional layout, it is less likely to be considered by employers. A top-quality CV will considerably boost your chances of getting a face-to-face interview. With ELBA’s CV Surgery Project, we aim to help you to get past the first hurdle by reviewing your CV and providing you with valuable feedback on ways it can be improved. All students need to do is email their CV to email@example.com along with the following details: Mobile number/date of birth/student ID/are you an international student?/university/course/year of graduation/borough of residence. ELBA will then match you up with a suitable volunteer(s) who will review your CV during April and we will return it via email along with feedback on its strengths and areas for development.

Is your society ready to play? On the 2 February EY will be launching our Cryptic Campus competition, 30 fiendishly cryptic canvases representing 30 individual universities, of which City is part of. We are contacting you because this year we’ve put societies at the heart of the game. We’ll be challenging students to solve as many of our cryptic clues as possible in an attempt to win one of 12 iPad mini’s we are giving away. Our challenge to you is to recruit and persuade as many of those students as possible to play on your behalf! Each registered student will equal one point for the society they register on behalf of. At the end of the competition, the society with the most registered players will win the top prize of £5,000, 2nd most will get £2,000 and 3rd most £1,000. So there’s plenty of reasons to play! We are doing this because we know that societies are the lifeblood of campus culture, as well as primers for the future. Nothing better prepares you for a life after uni than working collaboratively, sharing ideas, solving problems, and achieving goals – essential skills in business too. And just like the world of business, there’s one obstacle that keeps societies from reaching their potential: cash flow. That’s why we’re giving your society the opportunity to prove itself and win essential funds for growth. Register your society now and find out more about the competition and how it works. We’ve attached below, cover photos for your social channels as well as images to post when you’re drumming up support. With the game going live on 2 February we encourage you to be creative and really engage your networks to play on your society’s behalf. Are you ready for Cryptic Campus? Good luck. #EYCrypticCampus
