Features of a Successful CV

dynamic layout and a professionally designed front cover give the visual impact needed for your CV to succeed in the battle to gain attention

Strategic development of your CV to inject a marketing-oriented approach to selling you, and to maximise your potential of winning that interview in a competitive employment market

personal profile– because employers hire people based on more than just experience and skills. They are highly motivated by personal qualities and attributes, especially when this information is presented in our unique, proven style

highly readable, succinct writing style, helping the employer to reach a positive decision to interview you without wading through pages of rambling text

Your CV will be a powerful “selling tool”– as opposed to being just the traditional list of employment and task related details offered by most people

We pay special attention to grammar and syntax as well as to the tense and tempo of the language

If you have references or appraisals available, we may use ‘excerpts’ within the body of your CV. We have found this to be a highly effective marketing and image building strategy because it brings the positive opinions of past employers into dynamic focus

A Modern CV For The Twenty-First Century

Our team of human resource, management and marketing professionals have created stunningly written and highly engaging CVs loaded with vital keywords, and presented in a professional, visually appealing style that has had proven success.  Click on the samples on the right to view some of the styles we offer – all are ATS compliant, meaning they will perform well in the software used by recruiters.

Cover Letters To Strengthen Applications

Once you have a dynamic new CV, get a cover letter to match.  Successful CVs can write powerful cover letters as part of your application for specific job opportunities.

We don’t rehash what is already in your CV, as some people do.  We focus on the benefits you can bring to that organisation, and communicate in a way that exudes confidence and poise.

We know of situations where applicants were rejected because of their poorly written cover letters.  The hiring manager didn’t even bother looking at the CV.  Don’t let this happen to you!

LinkedIn Profiles That Get You Noticed
