Tips

  • Knowledgeable: An Immigration Advisor should be someone who is well-grounded in all aspects of their job and have an outstanding and up-to-date knowledge of the law. Your CV should clearly reflect that you are an authority to speak on these issues. For example, does the statement; “completing application forms” demonstrate a breadth of experience to the prospective employer? Certainly not! A better way to rewrite that is to say: “Completing visa and residency applications, including student visas, entry clearance, partner visas and indefinite leave to remain applications.”

Good Luck!
