Specialist Marketing Resume Writing Service Portsmouth

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

Creativity has a place

People looking at your Resume need to be impressed very quickly for all the right reasons. There is a massive difference between a portfolio and a Resume. 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 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 gross margin of their products and services. creativity for the sake of creativity has no place on a Resume.

Why a dedicated Marketing Resume Writing Service?

Having seen and reviewed many CVs for people who were highly talented but not being successful in finding their dream role, we decided to spend some time and explored the reasons why marketeers were failing with their Resume. The main common factor was that whilst many people were very good at selling or marketing services for others, they were not able to market themselves.

Our Marketing Resume 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 Resume at no cost using video so you can see exactly what needs to be done to get your CV performing for you. If you find you can’t do it yourself, give our specialist Marketing Resume 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 over 1400 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 didn’t have to be refunded. In some cases (two in total), we paid back all or part of the cost of the service as we couldn’t meet the expectations of the customers that used the 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 put on the on-line job boards and have it gather dust because no-one calls you for interview.

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

Up until now the only answer for getting through to the 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 problem 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 organisation know that you are looking for a new challenge.

That’s why right now, 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.

We leave nothing to chance so we write as necessary, making certain that spelling, grammar and punctuation is perfect and most importantly ensure that the UCAS personal statement leaves the best possible impression in the mind of the admissions officer.

We create the UCAS 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 elderly family member?

Your UCAS personal statement editing service

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

  • The correction of incorrect or inappropriately applied spelling, punctuation and grammar right through 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 admissions officer.
  • Editing sentences as needed, reducing down the amount of words in each paragraph without making the meaning too brief.
  • Creating a “tone” of communication that is consistent throughout the document and gives a positive portrayal of the applicant.
  • Ensuring that the whole piece hangs together in its entirety and relates a tale rather than simply being disjointed sentences.

The finished document will have taken into account current best practices that are effective today and have delivered success for applicants’ UCAS personal statements. For example, we will:

  • Create an interesting, engaging and above all memorable introductory paragraph.
  • Ensure that the right amount of space has been allocated to each element of the UCAS personal statement and that priority is allowed for those points of most impact.
  • Sell you to the University as a suitable and motivated student that will bring credit to the University and become a successful ambassador for the University later in your career.
  • Explain your choice of course, what you are planning 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 UCAS personal statement order will be emailed to you in the timescale that we promised with a detailed report/ critique explaining the changes that we have made to your UCAS 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 happy with the resulting UCAS personal statement. If you’re not happy, we’ll do everything we can to ensure that the completed UCAS personal statement is perfect.

Over the last few CV clinics that I’ve carried out, there has been a tendency for people to want interview advice as well as having their CV reviewed and re-written.

It may be that in those meetings, the message is getting through and the CV seems to be working for people.

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

Before the interview

Plainly it is important to research the organisation 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 in this article.

Get to an interview at least 15 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 starts are way more useful than the interview itself.

While 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 useful technique and it certainly is effective.

In the interview

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

Answering the question they ask you

When people ask a question, they usually expect an answer and preferably an answer to the question that was asked. It makes sense then that answering the question is the right thing to do. So many people waffle on in job interviews and don’t answer the question. From the interviewer’s perspective, this is frustrating and annoying so please do not do it.

The CV is largely redundant in the interview, but it makes good sense to print out a couple of copies of your CV so that you have one to hand and also have one for the interviewer to read if they need one.

What is behind the question?

Interviewers ask  many questions during an interview for a reason. They do not just ask questions for the sole purpose of filling space in the conversation. It makes sense then that thinking about why they are asking a specific question will help you to give a more satisfactory answer.

If you’re in the Portsmouth area and looking for a brand new or better role then we’d be delighted to help you. Just complete the short form above, attach your current Resume and a professional Resume writer will record a brief video giving you truthful and accurate personalised feedback and e-mail it to you.

A Free Resume Review can give you an amazing advantage over those people you are competing with for that dream job.

You will know exactly what is wrong with your Resume and also exactly what you need to do to get it right. Stop guessing about what is wrong with your Resume, get a free Resume review and you will be sure.

Feedback is such an essential thing in pretty much everything that we do. Getting honest feedback regarding your Resume is difficult, especially 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 sense but beware of some 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 simple cut and paste method for their Free 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 demoralise you and convince you to use their service. Our review service is completely unique. We record a personal Free Resume Review using video which goes through your Resume in detail and is tailored to you and nobody else.

Having exact and accurate feedback, along with helpful tips to show you exactly how to fix the errors gives you the very best chance to polish off your Resume and give yourself the best opportunity to be interviewed.

The sole purpose of the Resume is to get you interviewed.

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

Once you are sitting in front of the interviewer, the Resume is largely irrelevant.

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

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

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

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