Marketing yourself for employment

Free Guidance Booklet

Produced by UNV India office, with text-drafting support from miniAID, this booklet is targeted to National UNV volunteers in India, but could be useful to anyone who needs a few ideas on how better to market oneself for the employment market.

Using parallels from the selling of a motorcycle, the reader is offered practical guidance for the key steps in the search for employment: defining one’s hopes and aims, drafting a CV or résumé, developing one’s marketing strategy, reviewing job advertisements, tailoring one’s CV for a particular post, writing covering letters, following up on applications, attending interviews, and starting work.
