Volunteering 'a great way to boost a CV'

Many people fill their CV with academic accolades and achievements and, often rightfully, boast that their qualifications are excellent, but this is sometimes not enough to set them apart from other candidates.

This is where an experience such as volunteering comes into play, according to Stephen Hoare, writing for the Independent, who noted that overseas trips or even projects in the UK give people the chance to help their community and enhance their chances of employment by giving them something different and impressive to include on their CV.

"Whether you are in the sixth form, at university, or taking a gap year, volunteering is a good way of boosting your CV. The work is often highly motivating and volunteers develop confidence and skills you would not otherwise have acquired," he explained.

Mr Hoare added that people who fail to add something unique to their CV are unlikely to stand out and may therefore be hampering their recruitment prospects.

Meanwhile, Neil Taylor, language expert at The Writer, recently said there are many recurring problems in CVs – mainly silly and avoidable spelling and grammar mistakes, and these need to be addressed before anything else.
