The 4 steps to a perfect CV! Here's how we guarantee to get you hired faster.
Targeted Position Research
Firstly, it's important to understand that we're not a budget CV mill, and we don't just re-write your existing CV. After all, the reason you're here is because that CV isn't working! The mistake most job seekers (and some 'professional cv writers") make is they continually add content to a CV that's lost its relevance and targeting as their career has progressed over the years. CV People's point of difference is that we write your new CV from scratch, working in reverse by studying the positions (or job adverts within the same profession if you haven't shortlisted particular positions yet) that you wish to apply for as the starting point, then ensuring only relevant, targeted content is presented within your CV moving forward. This process creates ruthlessly effective application documents, giving recruiters exactly what they're searching for, without sifting through irrelevant, legacy fluff.
In-Depth Strategy Consultation
Once we've seen the requirements of your targeted positions, we review your existing CV (if you have one) to see where it's falling short. This is where we identify the exact requirements for your new CV and doubles as our scope of works. At this stage we complete a strategy consultation call with you (via video call or by phone), which typically lasts around an hour. We'll discuss your key skills, experience and achievements and how they are relevant to your targeted position(s). This also serves as great interview practice.
Exquisite Writing & Design
On average, our CV writers spend 10 hours drafting and designing your new CV from the ground up. You won't leave our process with anything less than a world-class CV, expertly written and designed to the very highest standards, professionally optimised for the 2023 job market. Your CV gets an average of just 10 seconds to make an impact, and our CVs do just that! Immediately affirming not only your suitability for the role but presenting you as the perfect candidate of choice.
Keyword & ATS Optimisation
Applicant Tracking Systems! Aaaargh! Did you know that 3/4 CVs are never actually seen by the recruiter after ATS processing?! They're a recruiter's best friend and an applicant's worst nightmare! An Applicant Tracking System (ATS) is the software built into all major job boards, with 9/10 recruiters using them. They save recruiters time by parsing your CV and filtering out unsuitable applicants. Through our vigorous research and writing process, we guarantee your CV will pass the ATS for your targeted positions.
