THREE Huddersfield University graduates have launched a service to help jobhunters impress potential employers.
And partners Adam Rhodes, Adam Wishart and David Moffat have been praised for their enterprise by the town's MP, Barry Sheerman.
The three former multi-media students set up ID30 last December, to provide internet-based advertising services.
Now, they have launched an online, interactive CV-writing service to help graduates make a good impression when applying for jobs.
ID30, based at the Media Centre in Northumberland Street, has teamed up with Milnsbridge-based G2 Career Coaching to set up the service at www.cvcreate.co.uk
Mr Wishart said: "We have all had to go through the process of writing CVs for our student placements.
"Our main target is graduate students who want to prepare a CV which will stand out from the crowd."
Students can put information on CD, including details about their education, achievements and interests, as well as images such as large drawings, architectural designs or paintings.
Said Mr Wishart: "Instead of carrying around a massive folder with dozens of pieces of work, they can take the CD to show examples of their work."
The three graduates have all chosen to stay in Huddersfield to get their fledgling business off the ground.
Mr Wishart hails from Bristol, while Mr Rhodes is from Leeds and Mr Moffat comes from Liverpool.
Mr Sheerman, who chairs the Commons Select Committee on Education, was invited to visit the firm.
He said: "It is nice to see three young graduates who are not from Huddersfield choosing to stay in the town following their studies and start a business."
He said the CV service was a "brilliant" business idea.
Mr Sheerman added: "I recently advertised for a job in my office and I had 20 applications.
"Employers in a similar position would start by weeding out the rotten- looking CVs. Those people would not even be considered," he said.
