One of the best ways to grow your CV while you are a student is to do an internship or work placement. Whether paid or unpaid, they are a great way to get some experience in an industry that interests you, as well as also an opportunity to try a particular company to see if you like their work culture and find out whether you would be a good fit. Moreover, it will give you more confidence when applying for jobs in the future and prepare you for what’s to come! Before you know it, you’ll have gained the capabilities to be able to pursue a far more experienced job role in the future.
To make your CV even more competitive, you can consider doing a work placement abroad — even if it’s just for a few weeks during the summer. You will show that you are able to adapt to different environments and always ready for a challenge. If it’s in a country where they speak a different language than your own, even better! You can gain fluency and boost your language skills at the same time
