How do you choose someone to write your CV?
Of course, we hope that you will choose one of our professional CV writers to help you with that job; however there are a lot of choices out there and you need to choose wisely.
In the first instance, we recommend speaking to your chosen writer personally and not simply allowing the company to choose someone for you. A good CV writer will take the time to get to know you and should be able to draw out some information from you that you may never have thought about before. For example, accomplishments and highlights from your career are a vital element in a winning CV and you should have confidence in your chosen writer.
It’s important that you choose someone who you can get along with, listens to what you have to say and also like. The CV writer isn’t going to end up being your best friend in all probability; however you definitely need to have a good relationship.
CV Writing Experience
I’ve worked with many CV writers in the past and they are not created equal. Try and work with someone who writes CVs for a living and don’t simply get advice from unqualified people. Well meaning senior managers can help but they don’t write for a living and you definitely won’t get the same results through them as you should do by having someone professional to write your CV
The purpose of the CV is simply to get you interviewed. If you are able to do the roles that you are targeting and aren’t getting interviewed then the problem is definitely the CV or how you are using it. There are thousands of jobs out there and the CV should be getting you through the door. If it isn’t, choose a different CV writer.
