What advice would you give to job hunters? We took to the streets to find out…

Veronica Ely, 23, a singer and songwriter from Essex
‘Get experience. Everyone’s CV looks the same, so you make yours stand out from the crowd by giving proof of your amazing skills.’ 

Georgina Childs, 25, a writer from London
‘Always tell the truth! Also, it’s so important to have your phone number amd contact details on there – you’d be surprised how many people forget to include those.’

Emma Allwood, 19,  a part time office assistant from London
‘Put relevant work experience on there, and do something to make it stand out, like highlighting your significant achievements’ 

Hannah Brager, 20, a shop assistant from Sweden
‘You need to have a simple, easy-to-read CV – don’t fill it with everything you’ve ever done! I always ask a mate to check the grammar too.’ 

Lucia Walker, 29, a journalist from London
‘Keep your CV to one page in length. Make sure it’s relevant too, containing only things that are specific to the job you’re applying for.’ 

Emma Clarke, 21, a student from Portsmouth
‘Extra-curricular experience is important, as it shows you’re a well rounded person, not just an academic and mention your blog if you have one.’
