Top CV Tips and Guidelines
Presenting and conveying information is one of the most important aspects of this job and should make it clear on your CV that you have experience of doing this (even if it was on projects in College or University).
You should demonstrate excellent research and analytical skills by giving real-life examples of how you utilised these skills when it comes to gathering, analysing, distributing and presenting information.
CV with No Experience: It is adventitious, in fact, it is usually an essential requirement, that you have some kind of experience with information-related processes. Volunteering in entry-level positions such as Information Assistant or Library Assistant will enable you to get a feel of a job and gain good work experience which will prepare you for the Information Officer job.
