How long does it take?
Writing the first CV draft usually takes 3 - 5 working days from the moment that I receive all the necessary information.
If you have an eye on a job ad that is about to expire and want to keep this timeline shorter, you have an option to order your CV as express service with a first draft sent to you within 48 hours.
If during our initial consultation I ask you to send additional details, this time counts from the moment I receive all the information that I need to complete your documents.
If you order a package with multiple documents, I always write the CV first. I want to make sure that I get it just right before starting to work on a letter or a profile (which may take an additional 1 - 2 days).
I always try to inform and keep you updated on the estimated document completion time, and I often manage to complete the work before the deadline. This is hovewer not a guarantee. If I am in the middle of a particularly busy period and the waiting times are longer, I will let you know during my first call.
Coaching dates and times are set individually.
How does the whole CV writing process look like?
After you place the order, I will contact you by phone or email.
Of course, I will need your employment history to write a good CV, so I'll ask you to send me your previous CV during our initial consultation. Do not worry if you do not have one - I am prepared for that, and I can send you a questionnaire to fill in.
I will also ask you a few questions about your future career plans. If you have any job ads that you find interesting, let me know.
At this point, I will ask you to choose a CV template for your new documents. I created an extensive CV template gallery from scratch and there is plenty to choose from.
After receiving all the information, I will start writing. It usually takes me a few days to create, edit and proof-read documents. I will send the first draft CV in .docx and .pdf format as soon as I finish. If you want to make any changes or revisions to documents, I am happy to help.
Can I suggest changes after you send me the first draft?
Yes, each CV / cover letter / LinkedIn profile order includes 3 series of revisions.
If you want to make any changes to the document I have sent you - email me. Send the document with your alterations and comments. Clearly mark the changes in red, add your suggestions and I will take care of everything for you.
I can call you to discuss, but I will still request that you sent the document with comments to me, regardless of the phonecall. I do not apply changes to the documents over the phone, because it is extremely easy to make mistakes this way.
If you need more than 3 series of revisions, please contact me.
3 revisions included in the price of the order do not last forever and will be forfeited: after 2 weeks of no contact from you or after you accept the order.
If you need any changes to a CV that I have made for you in the past, please contact me.
Does your CV writing and coaching service work?
It's subjective when I say that they do, but the number of satisfied clients shows that my CVs and coaching helped many people change and advance their careers. I have a lot of happy customers for whom my services and support made a real difference.
I strive to create documents that are modern, well-written, and adjusted to the market requirements and ATS systems.
However, even the best CV will not work if it is not utilised correctly. For example, I am not able to guarantee that you will get an interview after responding to only a few job ads. Or that after using a CV that I tailored to sales-specific roles you decide to to apply to job ads calling for an accountant.
No CV will give you a 100% success rate. Career search is not a short process and it requires a lot of effort. If you always match your CV to the type of position you're after, your chances of landing a great role increase dramatically.
In which formats will I receive my new documents?
I prepare and send all documents in .docx and .pdf formats.
Remember that when applying, it is best to send a .pdf file, unless the employer requests a different format in the job advert explicitly.
Can I edit my documents?
I write all of the documents in Microsoft Word (2016 or 2019 version), and if you have this software, you can edit .docx files.
Since I create the files in Word, I am only able to guarantee document compatibility with this program, not with other applications (for example, Mac or open-source software).
What if I'm not happy with my CV?
Each CV is custom-made to your specifications. Also, each order includes 3 series of revisions. I'll be happy to help you with any changes you want to make.
If you think this is not the right solution for you, please contact me.
I don't know what service to choose. Can you help me?
I am happy to help! Write to me or call me, and I will help you choose the best service just for you. Not every situation is the same, so I'll advise you the best I can.
What about GDPR?
Can you prepare a CV for various international markets?
Of course! I am aware of various requirements that are put before candidates seeking employment in other countries.
I have extensive experience in preparing documents for the global markets: German, Swiss, Polish, Australian and many more!
Safety & Security
In exceptional cases, your order may be closed, and your money returned.
I do not take this kind of decision lightly, but I do not tolerate any cases of abuse or harassment. I reserve the right to cancel orders of clients contacting me or answering phone calls under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Do you have any more questions? Contact me! I am happy to help.
