"After our hour and a half on the phone the other Friday, I got a very good feeling about the final result of my CV. You didn't disappoint; the result is exactly what I expected. Your professionalism and the service you offer is first class."
"CV looks REALLY good. Very happy. Thanks"
"Can’t quite believe that this is me to be honest! I think that Melanie has done a great job."
"Firstly to say I have had my telephone interview this morning (competency based) which I had planned for yesterday, using STAR based answers in response to the questions asked. It went so well that I have already been invited to attend second stage interview, so thank you for your help on this."
"I am very happy with the CV and Judy has been fantastic and supportive all the way through."
"I got my first draft and to be honest it is an excellent CV which will get attention from employers."
"I have been more than happy with the service provided and I think you have done a fine job of bringing me back in touch with the real world. Although I found the two hour interview gruelling, I thought it nonetheless harsh but fair and I think you got the best out of what is in my case only a short working life. I would certainly recommend you to anyone interested in professional CV writing help."
"I have some very good news - I applied for a position on the xxx website - one of two ideal positions for me which I discussed with you at the early stage of my CV preparation, and I received a phone call from their central resourcing unit this morning informing me that I have been short-listed for interview. Once again thank you so much for all your help!"
"I have taken your comments into consideration - thank you so much. If any of my friends or colleagues ever need a CV company I will recommend you - you have been brilliant!"
"I must say, the CV looks amazing."
"I showed the CV to my sister who is a HR manager and receives CVs daily and she thinks it is possibly the best CV she has ever seen."
"I thought I'd share with you the good news that I have successfully secured an offer at a Big Four consulting firm. I would also like to commend you on the excellent level of service you provided, not to mention an "exceptionally strong CV" as one interviewer put it. I can confidently assure you that should I wish to refurbish my CV in the future, you are at the top my list to consult with."
"I was very happy with the service I received. My completed CV far exceeded my expectations and I felt Pat understood exactly what I was trying to achieve. I am now considering the interview service."
"I'm happy with my CV and I will continue to make amendments myself as and when I need to. Thanks for all the help and I'll be sure to recommend your services to any contractors if they ask me."
"It has been great working with you! I am very pleased with the outcome of the CV."
"Just sent payment for CV which I think is great, thank you!! I can hardly believe its me!!"
"Just thought i would email you to say thank you for all your hard work on the CV. It really is first class, and if I can't get a job with Alan Sugar I will not hold you responsible!"
"Looks great, thank you for your assistance. Now on with the job search."
"Many thanks Matt for your services. I have found both Sue and yourself helpful and professional."
"Many thanks for all of your hard work and professional approach! It has been a pleasure working with you."
"Many thanks for the completed CV and the covering letter. I would like to say how pleased I am with both the level of service and the end products. I know I asked you to work to fairly tight deadlines and not only has that been easily achieved, but there is time to spare. Many thanks again and if I, my wife or any of my friends and colleagues require assistance, I shall not hesitate in returning to you or recommending you."
"Many thanks for your and Melanie’s work on my CV. I must say that your professionalism and end result have met and exceeded my expectations!"
"Many thanks to yourself and Judy for the help. Hopefully this will get me a breakthrough."
"My CV featured heavily in the many discussions with the agency and the panel from the company. They commented how professional it was and I am convinced that it played a major part in the selection process. Thank you."
"My partner had no interviews for 12 months and then got her CV written by the CV & Interview Advisors. She got 9 interviews and has landed the perfect job. I have signed up to have mine done today!"
"On another note, I will recommend you where I can because I believe you offer an excellent service. Thanks again."
"On first reading I like what Sue has achieved and I like the initial impact it creates."
"Once again 'thank you' (and Sue - who was brill) for doing my CV - 'when' I get the job I'll send you the good news!"
"Since you compiled my CV a few months ago there has been quite a lot of interest. I dare say with the current down turn in the job market there are a lot more people looking for new jobs than usual. However, there is a company that are showing interest in myself and it is looking good for an interview."
"Thank you again, I really appreciate the level of service that I have received, and would definitely recommend yourselves to others."
"Thank you for helping me out with my CV. I shall pass on your contact details to the doctor friend who is also doing an MBA at Oxford."
"Thank you for my new CV and I am very happy with your services. I really do like those two testimonials and all the changes you have made in my CV. I'm glad I picked your services."
"Thank you for the completed copy of my CV,I found it very difficult to articulate the worth of 22 years military experience into civilian language but you have done that very well. I particularly like to the format and presentation. I am more than happy with the final product and this will provide me with a basis from which I can continue to amend and update as I go. Thanks for all your help and if I need any further assistance I shall definitely use you again in the future."
"Thank you for the revised CV. It's perfect. Thank you for everything. The service has been exceptional."
"Thank you very much for the work you have done. I was pretty confident to begin with, however, having seen my new CV, your efforts have boosted that confidence even further. My CV will be winging its way to various job applications later today, so I will let you know how things go. Again, many thanks for your excellent work and service"
"Thank you very much for your help and a great CV. I would recommend this service to any banking professional."
"Thank you, I am happy with the changes and with the finished version. I am also very happy with the service I have received, particularly with the speed you have been able to produce the CV and deal with my comments."
"Thanks for all your help once again. I am in need for an urgent help. I have come across a perfect position and require my CV to be edited a little to match this role. There won’t be much change to the CV as you have done a perfect job already but wanted the maximum chance of getting this role."
"Thanks for the CV and Covering letter. I have just finished a telephone conversation with Sue who has made a few 'tweaks'. I have to say I am very impressed!"
"Thanks for the service you have provided. I am very happy with the results and would definitely use your services again. The CV that you have provided helped to achieve the job that I was targeting."
"The CV looks great, I'd certainly hire me! Thanks again for all your hard work."
"The completed CV is excellent, I really like it, its looks very professional and is formatted in a way that it is easy to read. I have promoted you by word of mouth to most people in my office and I am more than happy with the service I have received and will continue to recommend you to any one who talks about a CV."
"The service Judy gave was great as was the CV and letter. The process was relaxed and she drew out lots of information I may not have thought of. Very good."
"The service has been fantastic and I will certainly recommend you. Please can you thank Judy."
"Without a doubt you have done a super job with the CV and we're very pleased with the outcome. I'm sure it will prove a great asset in helping secure the right position. Once again, many thanks."
"Yes, understood your changes, CV looks even better now. A great round of revisions thanks for all your help. Keep in contact."
"You have done me proud, I would recommend you to anyone."

What the ATS finds on your CV and presents to the recruiter might be completely different to your intended message depending on what headings you use and where you include certain pieces of information.Read more
