CVpal have undertaken a complete review of my CV and LinkedIn profile to enhance my standing in the facilities management interim sector. The process was very professional and thorough and I was impressed by the one-to-one consultation which I believe is essential for a successful outcome. Andrew's thinking on the total redesign of both elements was thought provoking and I would highly recommend CVpal.Patrick Thorpe, Rickmansworth

I have found CVpal to be professional, friendly and proactive in every interaction with them. Andrew did a fantastic job of questioning and challenging me to think about the skills that I have gained and then produced a fantastic CV that described me to a tee and in a way that would appeal to the job market. I have already noticed an increase in the volume of interest and contact from potential customers and am confident that it won't be long at all before I am in my new role! Many thanks for your support.Cara Halliwell, Liverpool
I contacted CVpal after being made redundant and stuggling to update my CV. I met with Andrew and we talked through my CV and experience in detail. I felt he really listened to what I said and offered his opinion and professional advice whilst still being motivational. I'm so pleased with my new CV, it really encapsulates my skills and experience in a way I never could have done myself. I would definitely recommend Andrew and CVpal to anyone.Louise
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.Peter Holl, Chatham
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!
I was going through a very stressful time looking to leave my current profession and start over and had no idea where to start with regards to looking for a new job or what a CV should look like after 20 years. I rang CV Pal and spoke to Andrew who was completely down to earth, very easy to talk to and understood where I was at and what needed to be done. I cannot recommend the company enough for their professionalism, their experience and their great service. Thank you to Andrew and Steve and the rest of the team at CV Pal.Michelle F, Aylesbury
