CV Skills – How to make your yearbook work for you

girl_j1a

Just this morning I was chatting to a student who had started a project with an ulterior motive in mind. She wasn’t making it purely for the memories (it’s a nice little bonus though) but as a means to fulfilling an academic project 🙂 Courses such as the AQA Baccalaureate include an extended project which lends itself perfectly to modern day yearbooking – you choose a project, research, manage and evaluate the process once completed – awesome right?! So with this in mind, we thought we’d discuss the benefits of being a yearbook editor in relation to your studies.

In some cases, such as the example above, the relationship is evident straight from the start but you might not have considered the CV boosting skills that are part and parcel with being a yearbook editor. Many of you will be facing interviews for college and university soon and why not share your experiences! By being part of the yearbook team you’ll gain:

  • Organisational/Time management skills
  • Project Management skills
  • Research skills as you source photos and other content
  • Design skills
  • Problem-solving skills
  • Proof-reading skills

and many more! So if you’re intrigued about how your yearbook can work for you, or if you’re a member of staff interested in the academic benefits discussed, just get in touch. We’re always delighted to answer any questions you may have 🙂  Reach us on 01223 503259 or pop an email over to us at hi@allyearbooks.co.uk
