Employers will often receive hundreds of CVs for one job, so having a CV which employers will consider at every stage of the process is critical for getting shortlisted. A strong cover letter to accompany your CV is also important to make sure you are considered for the job. We can help you to develop your CV and cover letter, whether you are re-entering the job market and need to start from scratch or are an experienced job hunter in need of some tweaking.
We offer both a proofreading and copy editing service for your CVs and Cover Letters.
If you opt for the proofreading service, we will comb through your CV and/or cover letter thoroughly and correct any errors in spelling, grammar or punctuation. We will also ensure that the format and layout are correct. The content of your CV and/or cover letter will remain largely unchanged.
If you opt for the copy editing service, in addition to proofreading we will ensure that the content is appropriate, of a good standard and flows well. We may restructure the text, alter the format or suggest certain parts are removed or rewritten. We may also make stylistic alterations and suggest changes to the text where we feel they are necessary to improve its tone and fully achieve its intended impact. For a small additional cost we can offer a ‘final edit’ service, where you can send your CV and/or cover letter back to us after making the suggested amendments for a final check.
We specialise in working with entry and graduate level clients and for these services we aim to have your CV and/or cover letter edited and returned to you within 3 days. For more technical or specialised services this may be longer. We will provide you with a specific timeframe upon enquiry, and a final deadline will be agreed in writing prior to payment. We may also be able to offer an express service if you need your CV or cover letter editing quickly.
