You’ve written your CV in readiness to apply for a role. It’s a masterpiece! Best to get it checked over by Careers+Placements first though…

*Log-in to Aston Futures to book an appointment*…

Oh, there aren’t any available right now. What should you do?

Don’t worry, we have a brilliant new tool called CV360 that can provide you with instant feedback on your CV. It’s a really clever resource that scores your CV against over 50 checks that commonly can make or break a candidates recruitment chances. You’ll get useful and detailed feedback that can then be implemented to help optimise your chances of success with employers. All you need to do is upload your CV as either a word document or PDF file and CV360 will work its magic!

What will CV360 check?

CV360 will check all the basics of your CV including the format and layout, including the sections you’ve used and what you’ve put in them, your spelling and grammar and use of language, which skills appears to be represented most strongly in the document and optional sections such as personal profiles and achievements.

A full list of the check can be found here.

What should I do if require additional support after using CV360?

You can still book an appointment via Aston Futures with a member of the Careers+Placements team if you require additional support following the feedback you get from CV360. We hope by students using the tool as their first port of call, it should free up more appointments for students who require an extra level of support with their CV or anything else.
