CV and Interview Preparation

At Sligo LEADER Partnership we recognise that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to assisting jobseekers. Therefore, as part of the range of supports we offer to assist people into meaningful work, we are running a series of videos around CV and Interview Preparation and Job Search techniques. You will find below a series of links to videos which aim to assist you through all of the stages of your job search.
