Specialist Marketing CV Writing Service York

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

Creativity has a place

People reading your CV need to be impressed rapidly for all the correct 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, videos, press releases, advertising copy, etc.

A CV needs to highlight the benefits that your creativity has brought to 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 Writing Service?

Having seen and reviewed many CVs for people who were experts but not being successful in landing their dream role, we decided to spend some time and investigatedthe reasons why marketeers were failing with their CV. The main common factor was that whilst many people were very effective at selling or marketing services for others, they were less 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 for free using video so you can see exactly what needs to be done to get your CV working for you. If you find you cannot do it yourself, give our specialist Marketing CV Writing service a try, you’ll be pleased that you did!

CV Services, are they any Good?

Buying our professional and proven will ensure 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 paid back all or part of the price of the service as we couldn’t meet the expectations of the customers that used our service.

There’s nothing more annoying than having spent months (even years) writing a CV that you truly believe will get you interviewed, only to then post it on the online job boards and have it gather dust because nobody contacts you for interview.

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

Until now the only answer 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 know how to write 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 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 a bit far fetched, 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, ensuring that spelling, grammar and punctuation is absolutely perfect and most importantly ensure that the statement gives the right impression in the mind of the reader.

We write the statement as if it was being created 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 extra information if the 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, assist people in vulnerable situations, help a neighbour or look after an older family member?

Your UCAS personal statement editing service

We help you to get an interview 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 perfect through the document and that the flow of writing is easy on the eye and will make the best possible positive impact on the reader.
  • Re-writing sentences as needed, reducing down the amount of text in every sentence without making the meaning too brief.
  • Creating a “tone” of writing that is consistent through the document and conveys a positive impression of the applicant.
  • Making certain that the whole document hangs together in its entirety and tells a tale rather than simply being disjointed sentences.

The completed document will have made sure that 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 effective introductory paragraph.
  • Make certain that appropriate space has been allocated to every element of the statement and that priority is given to those points of most impact.
  • Sell you to the University as a qualified and interesting 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 planning to gain from it and explore multiple career choices resulting from successful completion of your studies.
  • Above all, portray your very best qualities and give you the very best chance possible of getting an interview or offered a spot at the University to study your chosen course(s).

Your statement order will be e-mailed to you in the timescale that we promised with a detailed report/ critique showing 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 100% guarantee that you will be happy with the resulting statement. If you’re not happy, we’ll do everything we can to make sure that the completed statement is perfect.

Over the last couple of resume clinics that I’ve done, there has been a tendency for attendees to want interview advice as well as having their resume reviewed and re-written.

It may be that in those sessions, the message is getting through and the resume seems to be working for attendees.

The one purpose of the resume is to get you interviewed. If you are qualified for the roles that you are targeting and are not getting interviews then the problem is the resume or how you are getting the resume out to employers and recruiters.

Before the interview

Clearly it is important to research the organisation that you might potentially be joining and there is a mountain of information on the internet about that so I won’t be talking about it in this article.

Get to an interview at least 20 minutes early. It’s as easy to be early as be late so it makes good sense that being on time makes sense. 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.

While you are waiting to be seen, find somewhere completely private such as the WC and carry out the “Sarnoff Squeeze”. Simply Google this on the web and you will find that the feelings that were concerning you will have disappeared. It’s a handy technique and it certainly is effective.

In the interview

Remember that the reason why you are in the 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 many instances, the interviewer will be equally nervous.

Answering the question they ask you

When someone asks a question, they usually expect an answer and preferably the 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 interviews and don’t answer the question. From the interviewer’s point of view, this is frustrating and annoying so please do not do this.

The resume is almost redundant in the interview, but it makes good sense to bring a few copies of your resume so that you have one to hand and also have one for the interviewer to use if they need it.

What is the real reason for the question?

Interviewers ask  many questions in the course of an interview for many reasons. They do not simply ask questions for the sole purpose of filling space in the interview. It makes sense then that thinking about why they are asking a specific question will help you to give a more interesting response.

If you are in the York area and looking for a brand new or better role then we’d be delighted to help you out. Just complete the short form above, add your current CV and a professional CV writer will record a short video giving you useful and accurate personalised feedback and e-mail it to you.

A Free CV Review can give you an incredible advantage over those people you are fighting with for that dream role.

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

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

Getting a CV Review makes sense but be aware of some so-called professional CV writing services companies that simply use their supposedly useful service as a vehicle to sell you on their service

Need a CV Review?

Many CV writing services utilise a generic cut and paste method for their Free CV Review service and simply look at the mistakes that exist in the CV, 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 completely unique. We record a personal Free CV Review using video which goes through your CV in detail and is tailored to you and you alone.

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

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

We decided that if someone was going to entrust us with their hard earned cash that we had better be sure to produce what our customers needed.

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

Our promise is that the CV that we write for you will put you in front of potential employing managers and recruitment agencies or we’ll give you your cash back. 

Once you are sitting with the interviewer, the CV is to a large extent irrelevant.

Of course, you may want to have a copy or two of your CV  copied out ready for the interview and the interview might include a couple of questions based around your CV. 

Our cast iron guarantee was and always will be that your CV will get you job interviews. We do not mess about with mealy mouthed amounts of times that your  CV can be edited before finishing the job.

We simply work with our customers for as long as it takes for the CV to work.

Put another way, you will get job interviews after having your CV created by us.
