“If the purpose of the cover letter is to get your CV read, then the purpose of your CV is to secure you an interview. ”

Why can’t I use my original CV for job applications? Why should I write another?

Many of you will already have a CV (or several) that you have been using, however, there is very little published advice regarding the transition of postgraduates into more senior roles. Most of the advice centres on undergraduates and those seeking more junior roles. The Cranfield CV is specifically tailored for our postgraduate students, and will form the basis of all your job applications during your time with us.
