Over fifteen years, I have developed a CV writing service, which clients really value, and which delivers a powerful professional CV. These are the four steps I take to deliver you a professional CV service.
Step One: We set up a professional CV interview. Clients have a choice of interview medium: face-to-face in my office, on the phone or via Skype. This step is the crucial foundation of writing a professional CV. We discuss your career goals, your past experience and I elicit powerful competencies from you that may have been shaded by humbleness. This gives me a strategic “backbone” for your professional CV. The interview usually takes an hour and most clients leave feeling inspired, empowered and excited. Most other professional CV services don’t offer this as part of the CV writing service.
Step Two: I then write your professional curriculum vitae. I call this stage “putting the meat on the bones”. I research your targeted role/s and assess the language and selection criteria used by employers. I then strategically expand the “backbone” using this research and the professional knowledge I have of a wide range of roles. To add value to my CV writing service, I will often add selling points that clients didn’t mention in the interview, but they greatly appreciate them when they see them added to their CV. That’s what a professional CV writing service should be doing … adding value.
CV Writing Service Step Three: I present your professional CV to you, explaining what I have done and why. I recommend we do this face-to-face, as it is a more professional and collaborative process than doing it by email. But, it can be done via email if that suits the client. When we meet, you have plenty of time to read through your professional CV, ask any questions and we collaborate on any improvements or changes. That’s part of what a CV writing service should do. Having said that, most professionals and executives make very few changes. For example, I think you would agree an IT Manager’s role is senior and very technical. The last professional CV I wrote for an IT Manager, the client made only one change ¾ it was the name of some software.
Step Four: I give you your professional CV on paper and electronically. It is a Word file, so you can use it as a base as your professional career progresses: a one-off investment in your future! Here is a tip: whenever you email your CV to a recruitment company or employer, send it as a PDF.
Those are the professional CV writing service steps I use to deliver a professional CV writing service to you. You are only four short steps away from powerful professional curriculum vitae.
