EEC’s CV Writing Workshop

CV Writing and Interview Skills Workshop

September 11th, 2011, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm, Tabligh Auditorium

The EEC organised a CV writing and interview skills workshop on the 11th of September 2011 at the Tabligh auditorium. It was open to everyone in the community regardless of age or employment status. The workshop was conducted byof Genius Consulting, a consultant and trainer.

Prior to the workshop, each participant had to submit a copy of their current CV to the EEC, which was then passed on to Br Al-Junaid for review. This helped him prepare a tailor made workshop suitable to the participants’ needs and requirements. The workshop covered the types of CVs, how to write a CV, choice of wording, format of CV, basic interview questions etc. The workshop had a CV writing session where participants were asked to rewrite their CVs and compared them to their old CVs. The workshop also covered a constructive criticism session for the rewritten CVs. There was a refreshment break in between sessions where participants had the chance to network with other participants. The workshop ended at 1.30pm, an hour later than scheduled due to the length of the feedback session on the rewritten CVs.

The participant feedback on the workshop was astounding with every participant stating that they thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and gained a lot of valuable information that would help them in their job hunt. Many indicated that they were interested in attending workshops similar to this in the future. The EEC plans on regularly holding workshops similar to this one for members of the community.
