Sample graduate CVs and job hunting resources

Build your CV using our example CVs and covering letters, and find extra job hunting tools and tips to help you organise your job hunt.

Our CV examples show you the basics of how to build your CV for internships and graduate jobs. They are based on an imaginary student applying for an internship in her penultimate year and a graduate job in her final year. The CVs are chronological but focus on skills and you can compare them to see how your CV should evolve while you are at university. We’ve included an annotated version of the final year CV to show you the thinking behind the way it is structured and written.

Look through the sector CVs for more ideas on layout and phrasing and remember to tailor your CV for every internship and job application.
