STEM sectors are vital to Scotland’s economic success, however, only 24% of the total UK STEM workforce are women. Women face significant challenges in entering these sectors. Your CV may be the first point of contact with the hiring company, so how do you ensure your CV stands out from the crowd and gets noticed? Whether you are a first year STEM student pursuing an internship or a final year student seeking a graduate post, the search to find your first step on the career ladder takes time and a high level of self-analysis. The purpose of this workshop is to ensure that all women STEM student applicants are given the best possible chance to stand out through the submission of a great CV and cover letter that matches your skills and personal attributes to the actual job requirements. The ultimate aim being to secure the desired interview.
