Graduate CV Format – Page 1
The first page of the CV should contain practically all the core information you wish to convey via an original Profile, Skills (Usually Tabled) and Notable Education/Achievements section. When applying for any Graduate role, be it for a multinational, agency or one of the ‘Big Four’, it is imperative that the CV and Cover Letter reflects your innate ability as a potentially valuable, productive and dedicated employee. It needs to demonstrate your Educational achievements, talents at multitasking, working in teams, delivering and working within a profitable culture within the company. A Professional and effective Graduate CV and Cover Letter is probably the single most effective investment your will make to secure your future. It is simply the difference between success and failure.

Graduate CV Format – Page 2
This page should only serve to reinforce and reflect much of the various factual statements that is reflective of a potential long-term employee looking to build a successful career within the company. A normal ‘Run-of-the-Mill’ CV and Cover Letter that is void of Educational skills, Keywords and Power Verbs is probably going to do you more harm than good when applying for Graduate roles. Regardless of the Sector, Industry and Specific roles, there is unique and fundamental information that needs to be conveyed when applying for any Graduate role, both here in Ireland and beyond. Format and Wording is everything. Let us take over from here. Order Below.
Graduate CV - Framework
Educated, Productive and Professional
Filled with positive qualities and specific skills that match the Job Spec, Company ethos and Sector. These need to be at the forefront of your CV and Cover Letter.
For Graduate roles, research on Power Verbs is extremely important in order to pass the ATS Software that many large employers utilizes to weed out badly written CV’s.
Training and Upskilling
Includes professional in-house Courses, Awards and Accolades from previous employers, companies or organisations.
Highlight successful completion of Courses, Projects and Extra Curricular Achievements to reflect the ability to multitask, learn new skills and work within a large multinational company.
Clarity and Likeability
Design your CV in an easy-to-read format. Lean towards the ‘conservative side’ when it comes to design and formatting. Convey a warm writing style that avoids a robotic factual-based document.
