Getting involved at university – start adding to your CV early

Have you seen the Guardian Careers website article ‘Why I’m thinking about employability during my first year of university’ this week?  It’s an interesting piece from a student at York who’s just finished first year and used his time outside of studying to build experiences for his CV.  I just thought I’d highlight it as I think it’s interesting and certainly echoes the messages we often hear from employers about wanting potential recruits who have more than just a degree to offer.  So when you’re back at university after the summer (or starting your first year at Manchester), maybe you might want to think about what you can do outside of your course to add to your CV and build up experience and skills!
