CV support

Get noticed. Get the job.


Employers are busy people and they're trying to solve a problem.


So make your skills and experience stand out with a CV and cover letter that are relevant, professional, chock-full of measurable achievements (not your job description) and easy-on-the-eye. Then back up your applications with an engaging LinkedIn profile that builds your network and gets you noticed.



My standard service (advice and high-level editing)

  • A one-on-one session to:

    • plan your documents

    • tease out your achievements (and put metrics on them!)

  • A toolkit of handy tips (see below)

  • Templates for your CV and cover letter

  • Copy-editing and proofing your documents (checking spelling, grammar, punctuation and formatting). 

Your investment: $185.

My 'for even better results' service (advice, writing, detailed editing)

  • My standard service (as above): $185

  • Plus: producing your documents:

    • Option one (recommended): I'll write your CV and/or cover letter (with one round of edits)

    • Option two: you write your CV and/or cover letter. I'll do a detailed edit for structure and writing style.

    • Both options include copy-editing and proofing (included in my standard service).

Please contact me for pricing and more information.
