FAQ



Q. What is a CV example ?
A. CV example is basically self-descriptive - it is an example of a CV. Most CV examples are too generic to be of any use when it comes to applying for real jobs. Our CV examples, on the other hand, have been specifically optimised by professional CV writers for real jobs. Consequently, our CV examples are far more effective in the job market than typical examples.

Q. Do your CV examples work?
A. Whilst no CV can guarantee you a good job it is commonly accepted that the better your CV, the better your job prospects. Our CVs have been professionally written by vastly experienced experts and have been professionally targeted for genuine jobs in your sector. So yes, our CV examples can, and often do achieve results real in the job market.

Q. Is it the same as a professional CV writing service ?
A. No. Professional CV writing services work on a completely individual basis, tailoring your CV exactly to your own personal requirements. With most professional CV writing services you will get your own CV consultant who can work with you on a one-to-one basis, creating a brand new CV specifically for you. CV examples, on the other hand, are less personalised. Nevertheless, since our CV examples are targeted for real jobs in your job sector they should still give you a very good starting point for a fraction of the cost of a typical CV writing service.

Q. Do I have to amend my CV example?
A. The CV example has been professionally written towards your job type. As such it should be appropriate for the types of jobs you are applying for. Nevertheless, you should still expect to need to tweak /personalise your CV as you see fit.

Q. Will all of the entries apply to me ?
A. As mentioned, the CVs have been specifically targeted to different job roles. Entries therefore should be relevant to the job you are applying for. Nevertheless, as this is a CV example, rather than a bespoke, completely personalised CV, some entries may not apply to you personally. In such cases you can tweak/personalise your CV as you see fit.

Q. Who wrote these CVs?
A. The CVs have been written by leading professional CV writers with many years CV writing experience.

Q. How do I know the CV is relevant for my job ?
A. The CVs have been written with specific jobs in mind. Not only that, but they have been professionally optimised to real job specifications for your job type. You therefore know that it is relevant.

Q. Who orders your CVs ?
