Specialist Marketing Resume Writing Service Basingstoke

Marketing is one of the areas where people’s views on the format of the Resume differ markedly. Marketeers are by their nature imaginative individuals and by far the biggest blunder that we see in a Marketing Resume is that people think that they have to be imaginative in the layout and presentation of their Resume.

Creativity has a place

People looking at your Resume should be impressed rapidly for all the right reasons. There is a massive difference between a portfolio and a Resume. A portfolio is the best place to highlight all areas of your creativity and can be used in all manner of creative ways, highlighting publications, videos, press releases, advertisements, etc.

A Resume needs to highlight the value that your creativity has delivered for the organisations that you have worked for. In the end, people employ marketeers to increase the revenues and margin of their products and services. creativity for the sake of creativity has no place on a Resume.

Why a Specialist Marketing Resume Writing Service?

Having seen and reviewed many Resumes for people who were experts but not being successful in finding their perfect role, we decided to spend some time and explored the reasons why marketeers were failing with their Resume. The main single factor was that whilst a good number of people were very effective at selling or marketing services for others, they were less able to market themselves.

Our Marketing Resume writing Service

We now specialise in writing CVs for people looking for roles in marketing, from Marketing Directors through to Marketing Assistants, we can help. Why not call and have a discussion about how we can help?

We are happy to review your current Resume at no cost using video so you can see exactly what needs to be done to get your CV working for you. If you find you can’t write it yourself, give our specialist Marketing Resume Writing service a try, you’ll be pleased that you did!

CV Services, are they any Good?

Using our professional & proven will guarantee that you will get interviewed. We have written over 1400 CVs for job seekers since we started editing CVs for a living and as far as we know every single one has been successful.

By successful, we mean that people got interviewed or got the result they wanted (for example, got in to University) and didn’t have to be refunded. In some cases (two in total), we paid back all or part of the price of the service as we couldn’t meet the expectations of the people that used the service.

There is nothing more disappointing than having spent ages (even years) writing a CV that you really believe will get you interviewed, only to then put on the online job boards and have it gather dust as no-one contacts you for interview.

You feel as if you’ve failed and the seeds of disbelief begin to grow in your brain as you question your value and think if you will ever get the role that you definitely want.

Up until now the only solution for getting through to the interview was to either get a professional HR colleague to write your CV or to get your boss to write your CV for you.

The problem with these options is that professional Human resources people who really understand how to write a CV are difficult to find, and even if you do manage to find someone happy to help you out, you’ll be letting everyone in your organisation know that you are looking for a new job.

That’s why today, I’m delighted to share with you my CV writing service that is guaranteed to get you interviewed. I know that may sound unbelievable, but in a moment you’ll see how it all works, so please just keep reading.

We leave nothing to chance so we re-write as necessary, making certain that spelling, grammar and punctuation is absolutely perfect and most importantly ensure that the personal statement gives the right impression in the mind of the reader.

We write the personal statement as if it was being written for ourselves or one of our family- nothing is left to chance and every possible effort that we can bring to the statement writing is brought and then some.

We may ask you for additional information if the content is light. For example: Have you been recognised publicly, privately or singled out for praise in the past? Did you do voluntary work, help people in difficult situations, help a neighbour or look after an older relative?

Your UCAS personal statement writing service

We help you to get an interview or offered a place at University by:

  • The correction of incorrect or inappropriately applied spelling, punctuation and grammar throughout the whole statement.
  • Making certain that capitalisation and sentence construction is correct throughout the statement and that the flow of writing is easy on the eye and therefore makes maximum positive effect on the reader.
  • Re-writing sentences as necessary, reducing the amount of text in each sentence without making the meaning too brief.
  • Creating a “tone” of writing that is clear throughout the statement and conveys a positive portrayal of the applicant.
  • Making certain that the whole document hangs together in its entirety and relates a story rather than simply being disjointed sentences.

The completed statement will have taken into account current best practices that are working presently and have delivered results for applicants’ UCAS personal statements. For example, we will:

  • Create an interesting, engaging and above all memorable introductory paragraph.
  • Make certain that the right amount of space has been allocated to each element of the personal statement and that priority is allowed for those areas of most impact.
  • Sell you to the University as a suitable and interesting student who will bring credit to the University and become a successful ambassador for the University later in life.
  • Explain your choice of course, what you are trying to gain from it and explore multiple career choices resulting from successful completion of your studies.
  • Above all, highlight your very best points and give you the very best chance possible of being interviewed or offered a spot at the University to study your chosen course(s).

Your personal statement order will be emailed to you in the time that we promised with a detailed report/ critique showing the changes that we have made to your personal statement and outlining the reasons why we have done so.

Changes will be made in line with the package you bought and we 100% guarantee that you will be delighted with the resulting personal statement. If you’re not delighted, we’ll do everything we can to ensure that the completed personal statement is perfect.

Over the last few curriculum vitae clinics that I’ve done, there has been a trend for people to want interview advice as well as having their curriculum vitae reviewed and re-written.

It could well be that in those meetings, the message is getting through and the curriculum vitae seems to be working for people.

The only purpose of the curriculum vitae is to get you interviewed. If you are qualified for the roles that you are targeting and aren’t getting interviewed then the problem is the curriculum vitae or how you are getting the curriculum vitae out to employers and recruiters.

Before the interview

Plainly it is important to find out about the organisation that you might potentially be joining and there is a ton of information available about that so I will not be covering it in this article.

Arrive at an interview at least 20 minutes early. It is as easy to be there early as be late so it stands to reason that being on time is the right thing to do. I’ve often found that the meeting before the meeting, i.e. the chats that you can have before the interview starts are way more useful than the interview itself.

When you are waiting for your interview, take yourself away somewhere completely private like the lavatory and carry out the “Sarnoff Squeeze”. Simply search out this on the internet and you will find that those butterflies that were concerning you will have gone away. It’s a practical technique and it certainly is effective.

In the interview

Remember that the primary reason that you are in the interview room in the first place is that the organisation has to employ someone. It might as well be you and not somebody else. The interview is an artificial environment and in most instances, the interviewer will be equally nervous.

Answering the question they ask you

When someone asks a question, they generally expect an answer and preferably an answer to the question that they ask. It stands to reason then that answering the question is the correct thing to do. So many people waffle on in job interviews and avoid answering the question. From the interviewer’s perspective, this is frustrating and annoying so please don’t do it.

The curriculum vitae is almost redundant in the interview, however it is sensible to bring a few copies of your curriculum vitae so that you have one available and also have one for the manager to read if they need it.

What’s the real reason for the question?

People ask  questions during an interview for many reasons. They don’t just ask questions for the sake of filling a gap in the interview. It stands to reason then that thinking about why they are asking a specific question will help you to give a more interesting answer.

If you are in the Basingstoke area and looking for a brand new or better role then we’d love to help you out. Just complete the simple form above, attach your current Resume and a professional Resume writer will record a short video giving you truthful and accurate personalised feedback and email it to you.

A Free Resume Review can give you an amazing advantage over those people you are fighting with for that perfect role.

You will find out exactly what is wrong with your Resume and also exactly what you need to do to get it right. Stop worrying about what is wrong with your Resume, get a free Resume review and you will be certain.

Accurate feedback is such an important thing in pretty much everything that we do. Getting truthful feedback about your Resume is difficult, particularly if a friend or family member wrote the Resume for you and you don’t want to offend their sensitivities.

Getting a Resume Review makes perfectsense but be aware of many so-called professional Resume writing services companies that just use their supposedly useful service as a vehicle to sell you on their service

Need a Resume Review?

Many Resume writing companies use a generic cut and paste method for their Complimentary Resume Review service and just look at the errors that exist in the Resume, cut out standard and pre-written  answers and suggestions that have been professionally written with expert sales copy to undermine you and convince you to use their service. Our review service is totally unique. We record a personal Free Resume Review using video which goes through your Resume in detail and is personal to you and nobody else.

Having exact and accurate feedback, coupled with helpful tips to show you exactly how to fix the errors gives you the very best chance to finish off your Resume and give yourself the best chance of being interviewed.

Ever since we started trading in 2009 and continuing until today, we have always guaranteed our work.

We figured that if a customer was going to trust us with their hard earned cash that we had better be certain to produce what our customers needed.

The single function of the Resume is to get you interviewed.

Our guarantee is that the Resume that we write for you will get you in front of potential employers and recruitment agencies or we’ll give you your money back. 

Once you are sitting with the interviewer, the Resume is mostly irrelevant.

Of course, you may wish to have a copy or two of your Resume  printed out ready for the interview and the interview might involve a few questions based around your Resume. 

Our guarantee was and always will be that your Resume will get you interviewed. We don’t mess about with mealy mouthed amounts of times that your  Resume can be edited before finishing the job.

We just work with you for as long as it takes for the Resume to work.

Put another way, you will get interviewed after having your Resume written by us.
