Student Employability Programmes
Graduate employability is a key metric for business schools, universities and colleges worldwide. The pressure to support students and ensure they succeed in their future career has never been greater. At City CV we work with a range of Higher Education institutions to maximise students’ chances of securing their target role.
City CV is the winner of ‘Best Graduate CV’ and ‘Best International CV’ in the international TORI awards, the ‘Oscars’ of the CV writing world.
For the past decade, we have worked in partnership with Russell Group universities and international business schools, providing tailored employability programmes that sit alongside existing career services. These can be designed as stand-alone programmes or specifically as add-ons to undergraduate and postgraduate pathways, including international MBAs.
Students have gone on to successfully secure internships and roles at all of the Big Four firms, bulge bracket banks and a huge array of blue chips, boutiques and SMEs across the UK, EMEA, MENA, Asia, the Americas and Australasia.
City CV’s specialist market knowledge enables students to gain a real advantage over other applicants by optimising the impact of their CVs and applications, and by developing interview confidence and performance. This includes expert advice and insider knowledge of the recruitment and application process for investment banks, investment managers, the Big Four accountancy firms, magic circle law firms, consultancies, media and the FTSE 500 across all major industries.
It is this professional insight, knowledge and background that gives City CV the edge, and creates the distinctive focus that surpasses generic career training.
