A Professional Resume Writing Service

Job Interviews Guaranteed

Should you use a Resume writing business?. Settling down to write a Resume can be stressful and difficult. CV That Works was only started as it dawned on us that creating a Resume was something that people needed help with.

The main function of the Resume is just to get you into the interview. The job is only going to be offered at or soon after the interview.

Our consultants are waiting for your call. Please call 01656 880648 or 07930673053. Our E mail address is: success@cvthatworks.co.uk if that’s better for you.

The service that you get from us is second to none. Personal, professional writing services that you can trust.


If you are living in Reading or anywhere else, here are several of the main reasons why our clients use our service:

Your LinkedIn profile is not just an extension of your Resume. The style of writing used when making your LinkedIn profile should be informal but not sloppy. LinkedIn is a professional networking web site and many different sorts of people will look at your profile.

Our LinkedIn editing service ensures that you stand out for the right reasons on LinkedIn when recruiters and organisations search for people who could be useful for their company.

We identify the skills and attributes that you possess and match them with the most applicable skills that are suggested by LinkedIn themselves. This gives you another chance of being found by recruiters who are seeking potential employees with specific skills.

A side benefit of this is that this will give you the chance to be endorsed or recommended by colleagues for skills that you really have and are useful for employers.

This service is necessary nowadays as more recruiters than ever are using LinkedIn to find ideal candidates like you!

Specialist Marketing Resume Writing Service Reading

Marketing is just one of the areas where some people’s views on the format of the Resume differ markedly. Marketeers are by their nature creative people and by far the biggest blunder 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 rapidly 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, 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 sales 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 landing their perfect job, we decided to spend some time and explored the reasons why marketeers were failing with their Resume. The main common reason was that whilst a good number of people were very effective at selling or marketing services for others, they were not 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 precisely 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 go, you’ll be delighted that you did!

CV Services, are they any Use?

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 refunded all or part of the price of the service as we couldn’t meet the expectations of the people that used the service.

There’s nothing more annoying than having spent months (even years) writing a Resume that you truly believe will get you interviewed, only to then post it on the on-line job boards and have it gather dust because no-one contacts you for interview.

You feel as if you’ve failed and the seeds of doubt start to grow in your mind as you question your value and think if you will ever get the job that you really want.

Until now the only solution for getting through to the interview was to either get a professional or senior colleague to write your Resume or to get your boss to write your Resume for you.

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

That’s why right now, I’m delighted to share with you my Resume 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 re-write as necessary, making certain that spelling, grammar and punctuation is absolutely perfect and most importantly ensure that the statement leaves the best possible impression in the mind of the admissions officer.

We create the statement as if it was being written for ourselves or one of our family- 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 weak. 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 elderly relative?

Your UCAS personal statement writing 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 throughout the entire document.
  • Ensuring that capitalisation and sentence creation is perfect throughout the document and that the writing flow is easy on the eye and will make the best possible positive effect on the admissions officer.
  • Re-writing all text as needed, reducing the amount of words in every sentence without making the meaning too brief.
  • Creating a “tone” of communication that is clear throughout the document and conveys a positive portrayal of the applicant.
  • Ensuring that the whole piece hangs together as a whole and relates a tale rather than simply being unconnected sentences.

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

  • Write an interesting, engaging and above all memorable introduction.
  • Ensure that the right amount of space has been given to every element of the statement and that priority is given to those areas of most impact.
  • Sell you to the University as a qualified and motivated 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 planning to gain from it and explore multiple career choices resulting from successful completion of your course.
  • Above all, highlight your very best qualities 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 statement order will be e-mailed to you within the timescale that we agreed with a detailed report/ critique explaining the changes that we have made to your statement and outlining the reasons why we have done so.

Revisions will be made in line with the package you bought and we guarantee that you will be delighted with the resulting statement. If you’re not delighted, we’ll do everything we possibly can to make sure that the completed statement is perfect.

Over the last couple of curriculum vitae clinics that I’ve carried out, there has been a trend for people to want interview advice as well as having their curriculum vitae reviewed and revamped.

It may be that in those sessions, 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 qualified for the roles that you are targeting and aren’t getting interviewed 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 will potentially be joining and there is a mountain of info available about that so I won’t be covering it here.

Arrive at an interview at least 15 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 far more profitable than the interview itself.

While you are waiting to be seen, take yourself away somewhere completely private like the lavatory and carry out the “Sarnoff Squeeze”. Simply search out this on the web and you will find that those butterflies that were bothering you will have disappeared. 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 instance is that the company has to employ somebody. It may 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 more often than not expect an answer and preferably an answer to the question that they ask. 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 do not do this.

The curriculum vitae is largely irrelevant in the interview, however it is sensible to bring a couple of copies of your curriculum vitae so that you have one available and also have one for the manager to use if they need one.

What’s the real reason for that question?

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

If you are in the Reading area and looking for a brand new or better job then we’d be delighted to help you. Just complete the simple form above, attach your current Curriculum Vitae and a professional Curriculum Vitae writer will record a short video giving you truthful and accurate personalised feedback and email it to you.
