A Professional CV Writing Services Southampton Writing Service

We Will Get You Interviewed

What is a CV editing service?. Writing a CV is not simple as you don’t have to do it very often. CV That Works was only created as it dawned on us that creating a CV was something that many people needed help with.

A CV has one simple task – it must get you interviewed. The job interview is the place you will be offered the job if you do well at the job interview itself.

Please give us a call on (01656) 880648 or 07930 673053. We can help you to get interviewed for the roles that you want to land.

We write great documents for job seekers who need to get an advantage over their competition for the role.


If you are living in Southampton or anywhere else, here are some of the main reasons why our past customers use our service:


CV That Works has been in business since 2009 and guarantees their work. We guarantee that you will get interviewed after having your CV written professionally by us.

We work with you and will never give up. If a CV needs to be modified, we edit it, and we’ll change it again until it does succeed for you.

We don’t just stop at writing the CV – we’ll help you target a job, find potential employers, get your CV distributed and more.

We never, ever take for granted that you are the client. Our service is personalised and it works, time and again.

people contacting us through LinkedIn, perhaps because our own LinkedIn business profiles are well optimised and bring in large amounts of website traffic.

Your LinkedIn profile is not simply an extension of your CV. The style of writing used when writing your LinkedIn profile needs to be informal but not sloppy. LinkedIn is a professional networking site and many different types of people will view your profile.

Our LinkedIn writing service will make certain that you stand out for the right reasons on LinkedIn when recruiters and organisations look for people who could be useful for their organisation.

We identify the skills that you have and match them with the most applicable skills that are suggested by LinkedIn themselves. This gives you an additional opportunity 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 opportunity to be endorsed or recommended by colleagues for skills that you actually possess and are beneficial for employers.

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

Specialist Marketing CV Writing Service Southampton

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

Creativity has a place

People looking at your CV should 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 highlight 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 benefits 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 CV.

Why a dedicated Marketing CV Writing Service?

Having seen and reviewed many Curriculum Vitaes for people who were experts but not being successful in landing their dream job, we decided to spend some time and investigatedthe reasons why marketeers were failing with their CV. The main common reason was that whilst many people were very effective 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 Managers 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 precisely what needs to be done to get your CV performing for you. If you find you cannot write it yourself, give our specialist Marketing CV Writing service a go, you’ll be delighted that you did!

We attend regular CV Clinics or CV Centres each and every month in a City Centre location such as Southampton where people can bring their CV and have it looked at on the spot.

Our Head Office could also be easily called a CV centre. Our qualified CV writers work incredibly hard each and every day to deliver amazing work for our clients\customers.

Get your CV to us and we’ll go through it in full and you will be on your way to getting interviewed and into a new or better job in no time.

CV Services, are they any Use?

Using our professional and proven will guarantee that you will get interviewed. We have written over 1400 CVs for job seekers since we started writing 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 cost of the service as we couldn’t meet the expectations of the people that used the service.

There’s nothing more disappointing than having spent months (even years) crafting a CV that you really believe will get you interviewed, only to then put on the on-line 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 start to grow in your brain as you question your value and wonder if you will ever get the job that you definitely 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 CV or to get your boss to write your CV for you.

The problem with these options is that professional HR people who really know how to create a CV are hard to find, and even if you do manage to find someone 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 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 write as necessary, ensuring that spelling, grammar and punctuation is perfect and most importantly ensure that the UCAS personal statement gives the best possible impression in the mind of the admissions officer.

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

We may ask you for additional information if your content is light. For example: Have you been recognised publicly, privately or singled 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 get interviewed or offered a place at University through:

  • The removal of incorrect or inappropriately applied spelling, punctuation and grammar right through the entire document.
  • Making certain that capitalisation and sentence construction is correct through the document and that the flow of writing is easy on the eye and will make maximum positive effect on the admissions officer.
  • Editing all text as needed, reducing down the amount of text in every sentence without making the meaning too brief.
  • Creating a “tone” of writing that is clear through the document and gives a positive portrayal of the applicant.
  • Making certain that the whole piece hangs together as a whole and relates a tale rather than simply being disjointed sentences.

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

  • Write an interesting, engaging and above all memorable introduction.
  • Make certain that the right amount of space has been allocated to every element of the UCAS personal statement and that priority is allowed for those points of most impact.
  • Sell you to the University as a qualified and interesting student who 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 possible career choices resulting from successful completion of your studies.
  • Above all, highlight your very best qualities and give you the very best chance possible of being interviewed or offered a place at the University to study your chosen course(s).

Your UCAS personal statement order will be e-mailed to you within 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 guarantee that you will be delighted with the resulting UCAS personal statement. If you’re not delighted, we’ll do everything we can to make sure that the finished UCAS personal statement is perfect.

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

It could well be that in those meetings, the lessons are getting through and the resume seems to be working for people.

The one purpose of the resume is to get you interviewed. If you are able to carry out the roles that you are applying for and are not getting interviewed then the problem is the resume or how you are getting the resume out there.

Before the interview

Plainly it is vital to research the company that you will potentially be joining and there is a ton of info available about that so I won’t be talking about it in this article.

Get to the interview at least 15 minutes before you need to. It is as easy to be there early as be late so it stands to reason that being on time makes sense. I’ve often found that the meeting before the meeting, i.e. the conversations that you can have before the interview itself are way more profitable than the interview itself.

While you are waiting for your interview, take yourself away somewhere completely private like the toilet and carry out the “Sarnoff Squeeze”. Simply Google this on the internet and you will find that those feelings that were concerning you will have disappeared. It’s a practical trick and it certainly is effective.

In the job interview

Remember that the primary reason why you are in the room in the first instance is that the organisation needs to employ somebody. It might as well be you and not anyone else. The job interview is an artificial scenario and in many cases, 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 right thing to do. So many interviewees waffle on in interviews and avoid answering the question. From the interviewer’s point of view, this is frustrating and annoying so please don’t do this.

The resume is largely irrelevant in the job interview, however it is sensible to print out a few copies of your resume so that you have one to hand and also have one for the manager to read if they need one.

What is the real reason for the question?

People ask  many questions during an interview for a reason. They don’t simply ask a question for the sole purpose of filling space in the conversation. It stands to reason 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 Southampton area and looking for a new or better job then we’d love to help you out. Just complete the short form above, attach your current Resume and a professional Resume writer will record a short video giving you useful and accurate personalised feedback and send it to you.

You will find out precisely what is wrong with your Resume and also precisely 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 certain.

Feedback is such an essential thing in almost everything that we do. Getting honest feedback about your Resume is difficult, especially if a friend or family member created the Resume for you and you do not want to offend their sensitivities.

Getting a Resume Review makes perfectsense but be aware of many so-called professional Resume writing services companies that simply 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 Complimentary Resume Review service and simply look at the errors that are present in the Resume, cut out standardised 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 opportunity to polish off your Resume and give yourself the best opportunity to be interviewed.
