I was a little dubious about using CV Writing Services to begin with, but after 3 months of not receiving any interest from numerous online applications (and being pretty sure it was not to do with a lack of skills or experience) I decided to give it a try. After checking a few companies out and sending off for some free CV reviews, CVpal's initial feedback was the most detailed and explained exactly where I had gone wrong. I then spoke to them on the phone and had a very valuable and not too sales-pitchy conversation, which made me feel comfortable handing over the service fee.

In less than a week I received the initial draft and was most impressed! It was beautifully presented, included all the relevant information and added key words that I can see now were really important. If I was to be really picky (with my ex-IT Teacher and new IT Trainer hat on) the only issue I had with my CV was that it was manually formatted throughout, rather than using Styles, but this is certainly something I could overlook! After going back and forth a couple of times to make some minor adjustments I felt it was time to start sending it out and seeing how well my new CV worked.

I had stopped applying for jobs for a period of 2 weeks while I was hunting for CV Writing Services and waiting for CVpal to redo mine, so on the following Monday I sent out 5 new applications. By the next day I had had 4 responses of which I turned down 1, 1 never followed up and 2 went to the telephone interview stage. One of these then went to final face-to-face interview and within 2 weeks of sending out my new CV I was finally offered a new job (which I start in the next week or so and am really looking forward to!).

There is clearly a knack to writing CVs as recruiters seem to be looking for very specific information presented in a very specific way, and the staff at CVpal clearly know what they are doing. Although it may seem a lot of money to begin with, on reflection it was definitely a worthwhile investment and I would have no hesitation in recommending CVpal's services ( I will most probably use them again in a few years when my CV needs an update!) If in doubt, give their free CV Review service a try and give them a call - I'm sure you won't regret it!

This is the first time I have used such a service and I have found what you are providing to be invaluable. I am absolutely delighted with the CV, and will have no hesitation in using your service again, as well as recommending CVpal to others. Many thanks to the team.

George Finch, Harpenden

CV and cover letter was was completed to a very high standard and with a quick turn around from payment to first draft. The people were very helpful and respond to any questions by e-mail very quickly. Very happy with the Service I have received, would recommend to anyone looking for a CV.

Ben Humphries, Westbury

This is the second time I have used the service. As a busy senior HR professional I have to have a 5 star CV but needs to be realistic.
I worked very well with Andrew and we discussed and exchanged ideas. He is open to understanding his customer and not afraid to challenge where necessary. The company is very current with what the market wants and I would recommend this company to anyone wanting a good professional, solid CV.

D. Rowe, London

Andrew was very helpful from start to finish and he spent time on the phone with me discussing what I wanted first which a lot of other company's I looked at failed to do. When I received my CV back I was extremely happy I did not need to make any changes and it is much better than anything I could have written myself. I would defiantly recommend CV Pal and I will be using the service ahgain in the future.
