Similar to a resume, your CV provides a first impression for employers. Typically, a CV is reserved for professionals in academia, medicine or healthcare, or for those seeking teaching or research roles. “Curriculum vitae” is a Latin phrase that is loosely translated to "(the) course of (my) life," so unlike a resume, it doesn't need to be brief, but can be as long as it needs to be. Those reviewing CVs are not reviewing hundreds of applicants because they are usually reserved for very selective positions, fellowships, or admissions consideration. These positions are competitive which means you still need to stand out. Your CV needs to be organized, comprehensive, and well written, while still displaying your value through the results you've produced in your current and previous roles. We offer three services to help professionals improve their CVs to ensure that they stand out on paper for the most selective opportunities.
New CV $199 (+$50 for each additional page)
In order to create a new CV, we will find a time to talk about your experience in more detail. You will speak with a career coach to provide more information about your current and previous roles, duties, responsibilities, accomplishments, research, publications, presentations, professional affiliations, teaching experience, and other relevant experiences to produce the initial draft. Then, we will edit the document until we agree on a finished product. We do the heavy lifting while you provide us with all of the information we need to create a winning CV tailored to specific positions and opportunities. We will have a conversation about your background, education, goals and experience and develop a CV that has proven to stand out in a crowded job market of hundreds of professionals just like you. If you've ever taken the time to work on your CV, you understand how tedious the process could be. This service is sure to save you valuable time and energy, while decreasing your stress levels when seeking new opportunities.
CV Edit $99 (+$25 for each additional page)
For the budget-conscious professional who has the time and the will to make updates to their CV under the direction of a career coach, this service is the perfect option. Often times, the content of your CV does not need much work, which is why the CV edit involves reformatting the document to ensure that it is appealing enough to stand out in a pile of other qualified applicants. We will also reword bullet points to ensure that they communicate your value in a format consistent with what employers are looking for in applicants. If we determine that you need a new CV, we will let you know. This service will be completed via email.
CV Review $59
If you want a professional opinion on how you are presenting your value on your CV, this is the service for you. For this service, we will review your CV, and provide very detailed feedback on what you can do to improve it via email. You will be responsible for making the changes and incorporating the suggestions we provide. We will then provide additional feedback on the updated version of your CV. Sometimes, it doesn't take much for your CV to stand out, it could be formatting, it could be language or word-choice, organization, or how you articulate your value in your bullet points. This service will be sure to identify what stands between you and the interview.
