CV Editing

Writing and sending your CV and cover letter to potential employees is nerve wracking.


This coupled with the anxiety that surrounds spelling and grammar, can leave you wondering if your CV reads professionally AND sells you as well as it could.  

Potential employers are in the business of expecting CV perfection. A CV or cover letter that doesn't flow or contains sloppy grammar and errors, will make the wrong first impression.


In a competitive job market, why leave it to chance?

Why waste your time and effort on writing and delivering your CV without being 100% confident that it's word perfect?


Whilst modern writing software and computer programmes are a useful aid, they still leave room for error. Moreover, when you write your own words, it is difficult to notice errors and small mistakes within the syntax.

Following a specific style guide, I edit your existing CV and/or covering letter for you and with fresh eyes. I can even edit your job application too! 


This means you can deliver all your information to your potential employer with complete confidence in the power of your words.


A professional reflection of you, your qualifications, experience and skill set, your CV and covering letter need to:

  • Demonstrate your ability to communicate

  • Flow clearly, without grammatical mistakes, loose threads or poor punctuation

  • Stand out from a crowd of other job seekers

  • Paint a professional picture of you, with no room for error and sloppy spelling

I make sure your CV and associated documents are professional, sharp and easy to read; by checking and correcting your spelling, punctuation and grammar. By also including gentle rewrites and paraphrasing where necessary, my words will instil confidence in your hiring manager and give you a competent, polished edge.
