CV Creation & LinkedIn
Everyone should have a CV they feel proud of. It’s the first document that potential employers see and should tell your story, and describe your skills beautifully. I will work with you to make the tricky process of writing a flawless CV as easy as possible.
CV writing is what I do – working hard to create CVs that impress for each and every client. Having worked with hundreds of clients to create their perfect CV, I understand what employers are looking for and how to write CVs that get interviews.
I offer expert advice on CV presentation, providing constructive and impartial feedback on your resumé and LinkedIn profile. My tips and methods on how to draw out your strengths and experiences, and describe your skills, will help you put together a CV to impress potential employers (and yourself).
In a world where we are increasingly meeting employers online, having a LinkedIn profile that reflects you and your career journey is essential. Creating your LinkedIn profile may follow on from working on your CV and follows a similar process of getting to know you and helping you to present your skills in a way that invites connections and opportunities.
How does it work?
We'll work together to create a standout CV or LinkedIn profile, through conversation and discussion. I'll share my expert advice on how to write up your skills and experience so your details stand out from the crowd.
Creating a standout CV or LinkedIn profile is usually spread out over more than one session. We can work on this together in face-to-face sessions, or after an initial brief I can create your document for you.
A one-to-one session to understand your skills, experience and the roles you are targeting is charged at £85 - following our session I will be able to tell you how much additional work will be required on your document. Additional work outside sessions is charged at £45 per hour.
What clients say
"Asked the right questions, clarified my sense of purpose and was lovely to work with"
"Catherine was instrumental in helping me secure the right job. After a very stressful period of time wandering aimlessly in my career, she helped me change perspective by taking an in depth and full spectrum approach to my job search. As well as helping me improve my CV and giving me interview training, Catherine asked the right questions, clarified my sense of purpose and was lovely to work with. I couldn't recommend her more highly."
"You gave me so many suggestions that I would never have considered alone"
"Catherine worked with me on improving my CV and immediately it attracted a lot more interest from recruitment agents. I liked her gentle approach when we worked together, I have very strong sense that the new CV is "mine" but at the same time she gave me so many suggestions that I would never have considered alone."
"Working with you was the one bright spot in an otherwise very stressful redundancy process"
"Working with you was the one bright spot in an otherwise very stressful redundancy process, you were always very supportive and understanding. We worked together on my CV, I found your input very helpful and constructive and I have had good feedback on the final document."
"Extremely skilled at asking the right questions"
"I can't praise highly enough the service I received from Catherine. She was extremely skilled at asking the right questions to help me work out my own career path, leaving me in control of my decisions and the outcome of the process. I had been following a career path I fell into seven years ago, with no real clue of the direction to take in the future. The sessions helped me to clarify my skills and priorities, giving me the space, and tools, to work out a solid career plan for the next five years and more."
