Have you written a CV for my industry?
When choosing a CV writer, remember that the most important attributes to look for are not niche expertise but their:
1) Quality of writing
2) Ability to ask pertinent questions, leading to an impactful document that drives results
3) Bespoke service
CV writing is also a collaborative process.
During your consultation, we’ll clarify your goals and ensure that we have a strong understanding of your niche before we get to work.
Do you work with international clients?
We work with clients from all around the world including Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
We’ll conduct your initial consultation over the phone or via a Zoom conference call, so we can help no matter where you are based.
We also tailor your CV’s content and formatting based on where you intend to apply for jobs.
What does your process look like?
Once you place your order, we will email you our questionnaire and details regarding next steps.
After we receive and review the background information we need from you, we will set up a phone call to discuss your experience and goals in more detail.
Then, we’ll get to work! Once your drafts are ready, you’ll have a chance to provide feedback so we can make any necessary tweaks if needed.
Why are you priced higher than other CV writing services?
Simply put, we put a significant amount of time into understanding your background and crafting your document.
The time devoted to each client includes:
- reviewing your initial documents
- a one-on-one phone consultation
- outside research
- a follow-up call (if needed)
All of these components tend to be equivalent to at least a full working day.
We know that many larger CV writing companies offer a much more automated service and frequently outsource their writing internationally.
Our clients hire us because we promise - and deliver on - exceptional quality.
We pride ourselves on the strength of documents we produce and price our services accordingly.
Will I get to provide input during the writing process?
However, we may push back and challenge your recommendations if they do not conform to industry best practices or would not be in your best interests.
That said, we will work with you and make requested changes to ensure you are satisfied with your final document.
Is the investment worth it?
We’ll let our reviews speak for themselves!
But to put it into perspective, your investment is likely to be less than 1% of your annual salary - and can lead to the opportunity for further salary growth.
I’m not sure if I will benefit from your services. Can you take a look at my CV before we get started?
We only work with clients if we believe we will be able to add value.
If you would like us to review your CV before we get started, please email it to email@example.com.
We will get back to you with feedback on how we can improve your document if needed.
You also encourage you to book an introductory call to discuss our services in more detail.
Do you guarantee results?
No trustworthy CV writer should guarantee interviews or job placement, but we can assure you that we will provide you with well-written documents that adhere to industry standards.
There are too many factors outside of our control that prevent us from guaranteeing results. These factors include your:
- Experience level
- Quality of other applicants
- Interview performance
- Fit for role
However, based on the feedback we receive, our clients do tend to be successful in their subsequent job searches.
Can you update my CV with my new role?
If you have already worked with us and need an update to your document, please email us for a custom quote. You do not need to purchase a new package.
Where are you based?
We are based in central London.
While most of our clients work in the UK, many of them are based internationally.
Our CV writers have worked clients all over the world based in Dubai, Hong Kong, London, Milan, Tokyo and Zurich, among others.
We work with all clients remotely via phone, Zoom and email.
