Specialist Marketing CV Writing Service Portsmouth

Marketing is just one of the areas where people’s views on the presentation of the CV differ markedly. Marketing professionals are by their nature artistic people and by far the biggest error that we see in a Marketing CV is that people believe that they need to be artistic in the layout and presentation of their CV.

Imagination has a place

People reading your CV need to be impressed rapidly for all the right reasons. There is a massive difference between a portfolio and a CV. A portfolio is the best place to present all areas of your creativity and can be used in all manner of creative ways, highlighting publications, media projects, press releases, advertisements, etc.

A CV 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 sales and gross margin of their products and services. creativity for the sake of creativity has no place on a CV.

Why a Specialist Marketing CV Editing Service?

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

Our Marketing CV writing Service

We now focus on 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 CV 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 CV Writing service a go, you’ll be delighted that you did!

CV Services, are they any Use?

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

By this, we mean that people got interviewed or got the job they wanted (for example, got in to University) and did not have to be refunded. In some cases (two in total), we refunded all or part of the cost of the service as we couldn’t meet the expectations of the people that used our service.

There is nothing more disappointing than having spent months (even years) crafting a Curriculum Vitae that you really believe will get you interviewed, only to then post it on the on-line job boards and have it gather dust because no-one calls you for interview.

You feel as if you’ve failed and the seeds of disbelief start to fester in your brain as you question your value and wonder if you will ever get the job that you really want.

Up until now the only answer for getting through to the job interview was to either get a professional HR colleague to write your Curriculum Vitae or to get your boss to write your Curriculum Vitae for you.

The issue with these options is that professional HR people who really understand how to create a Curriculum Vitae are difficult to find, and even if you do manage to find anyone happy to help you out, you’ll be letting everyone in your company know that you are looking for a new job.

That’s why today, I’m happy to share with you my Curriculum Vitae 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.

Nothing is left to chance so we write as necessary, ensuring that spelling, grammar and punctuation is perfect and most importantly ensure that the personal statement gives the best possible impression in the mind of the reader.

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

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

Your UCAS personal statement editing service

We help you to get interviewed or offered a place at University through:

  • The removal of incorrect or inappropriately applied spelling, punctuation and grammar throughout the whole document.
  • Ensuring that capitalisation and sentence construction is correct throughout the document and that the flow of writing is easy on the eye and will make maximum positive impact on the reader.
  • Re-writing sentences as needed, reducing down the amount of words in each paragraph without making the meaning too brief.
  • Creating a “tone” of writing that is consistent throughout the document and conveys a positive portrayal of the applicant.
  • Ensuring that the whole piece hangs together in its entirety and tells a story rather than simply being disjointed sentences.

The completed document will have made sure that current best practices that are effective presently and have delivered success for applicants’ UCAS personal statements. For example, we will:

  • Write an interesting, engaging and above all memorable introductory paragraph.
  • Ensure 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 qualified and motivated student that will bring value to the University and become a successful ambassador for the University later in your career.
  • 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 getting an interview or offered a place at the University to study your chosen course(s).

Your personal statement order will be e-mailed to you within the timescale 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 purchased and we 100% guarantee that you will be delighted with the resulting personal statement. If you’re not delighted, we’ll do everything we possibly can to ensure that the finished 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 single purpose of the curriculum vitae is to get you interviewed. If you are able to carry out the roles that you are applying for and are not getting interviews then the issue 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 research the company that you might potentially be joining and there is a ton of information on the internet about that so I will not be talking about it here.

Get to the interview at least 20 minutes early. It’s 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 itself are far more profitable than the interview itself.

When you are waiting to be seen, take yourself away somewhere completely private like the lavatory and perform the “Sarnoff Squeeze”. Simply search out this on the net and you will find that those feelings that were bothering you will have disappeared. It’s a handy technique and it certainly is effective.

In the job interview

Remember that the reason that you are in the room in the first instance is that the company needs to employ somebody. It might as well be you and not somebody else. The job interview is an artificial environment and in most instances, the interviewer will be equally up tight.

Answering the question they ask you

When someone asks a question, they usually require an answer and preferably the answer to the question that was asked. It makes sense then that answering the question is the best thing to do. So many interviewees 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 irrelevant in the job interview, but it makes good sense to bring a couple of copies of your curriculum vitae so that you have one to hand and also have one for the interviewer to use if they need one.

What is behind the question?

Interviewers ask  many questions in the course of an interview for a reason. They don’t just ask a question for the sole purpose of filling space in the conversation. It makes sense then that thinking about why they are asking a particular question will help you to give a more interesting response.

If you’re in the Portsmouth area and looking for a new or better role then we’d love to help you out. Just complete the simple form above, add your current Curriculum Vitae and a professional Curriculum Vitae writer will record a brief video giving you useful and accurate personalised feedback and e-mail it to you.

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

Need a Curriculum Vitae Review?

Many Curriculum Vitae writing companies use a generic cut and paste method for their Free Curriculum Vitae Review service and just look at the mistakes that exist in the Curriculum Vitae, cut out standardised and pre-written  answers and suggestions that have been professionally written with expert sales copy to demoralise you and convince you to use their service. Our review service is completely different. We record a personal Free Curriculum Vitae Review using video which goes through your Curriculum Vitae in detail and is tailored to you and nobody else.
