Friday, 28 May 2010
Graduates have been told by James Caan that they must maintain a disciplined approach if they want to add value to their CVs.
Writing for the Daily Telegraph, the Dragon's Den star highlighted that many individuals were wise during the recession and found the time to complete new courses which provided them with skills that were transferable between industries.
As well as increasing their likelihood of standing out to a potential employer, this also shows a good attitude, according to the business entrepreneur.
Furthermore, Mr Caan offered some advice to graduates in ensuring they get the basics of a CV right to not scupper their chances of securing a position.
He said in the publication: "People need needs ensure it is succinct, includes relevant experience and is checked for accuracy.
"Candidates need to make especially sure they sell themselves from the first sentence."
In a previous article for the Telegraph, Mr Caan told businesses that they should not neglect graduates when looking to fill vacancies as they should analyse all of the talent in front of them.
