The most important duty of an IAG Officer is to give impartial advice to students or customers who need to make informed decisions about their futures. You should, therefore, ensure that your CV covers all the aspects or skills which are required in order to do this; communication skills (face-to-face, over the phone and through email), professionalism and respect for privacy, courtesy, sensitivity and being able to motivate and encourage people to take appropriate action.

Good Luck!
