CV Proofreading

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


It's a time when you can do without the added doubt that surrounds spelling, your use of grammar and punctuation. 

Potential employers are in the business of expecting CV perfection. A CV or cover letter with sloppy grammar and spelling errors, will make the wrong first impression. In a competitive job market, can you afford to risk it?

For the sake of a few pounds, why waste time and effort on writing and delivering your CV and covering letter, 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 proofread your existing CV and/or covering letter for you and with fresh eyes. I can even proofread your job application too! 


This means you can deliver all your information to your potential employer with complete confidence in the clarity 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

  • Read clearly, without grammatical mistakes 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. My words will instil confidence and give you a competent, polished edge.
