CV writing can be tough. So, this is where you’ll get step-by-step help with your CV writing.
You sit with your CV, late into the night. You’re tearing your hair out!
Yep, you may be finding that your CV – curriculum vitae or resume (USA version) – well, it’s just not the promotional tool you’d like it to be. It’s long, average. And it looks like every other CV out there.
There’s nothing special about it. No spark.
So what do you need? 1) Maybe the personal assistance I can give with my Professional CV writing service – I’ve written CV’s for doctors, CEO’s, MD’s, Engineers, Admin Clerks, Accountants, Students – I’m confident I can help you too (wherever you are in the world (Aus, USA, Uk, RSA).
Now, which of these questions fits you?
- Do you need to write a CV that really sells you?
- Do you need a step-by-step guide to writing a CV or cover letter from scratch?
- Do you need your CV to showcase your unique value?
- Do you need your CV to get better, quicker results from recruiters and employers?
- Do you perhaps need a CV or resume that is acceptable internationally?
I’ll be sharing my insider insights with you – as a professional CV writer and recruiter – here. I know your CV can be a powerful promoting document. It can make you stand out. But … writing it – especially writing it yourself – is a tough challenge. Like “LB” found.
Recently I got this testimonial from him (“LB”) – a cv writing client:
“Hi Gerard, Thanks for your help, I sent my C.V out the day after receiving it from you. Within two days I had four interviews lined up and I’m glad to report I got three offers. I picked my favourite and I’m starting at [the company] on Monday. Its a great offer and more than I was expecting.” – LB, 04, 2009
Why do I mention this? Because in LB’s case – he’s an Engineer – writing a CV isn’t his ‘thing’. It’s my ‘thing’. And I know this pretty much for 100% sure:
Your CV isn’t doing you justice. It looks like a million others. It doesn’t capture how valuable you can be to a business. It doesn’t show how you’re special.
How can I say this? I’ve personally reviewed and re-written thousands of CVs over the last 10 years – some of which have been written by the cheap, one-size-fits-all CV writing services you’ll see advertised on Google – and – I wish I didn’t have to say this – 99% of them have been lousy. Maybe yours is different, I hope so. But even so, I guarantee there are some major improvements you could make.
