Professional Writing Services & Interview Skills Coaching
A well-written professional CV gives you a powerful advantage over other applicants. It is the primary professional self-marketing tool, so it's vital that your valuable skills and experience are clearly and effectively highlighted. A CV needs to differentiate you and help you stand out. The more relevant it is, the more likely you will be selected for an interview. Our professional CV writers tailor CVs for particular roles, sectors, companies and even countries.
A targeted, well-written cover letter will gain the attention of the hiring manager or recruiter and actively increase your chance of being invited to interview. A powerful, tailored letter will not only demonstrate your potential strong match for a position, it will also send a positive message to a prospective employer of your interest in the role and commitment to the job opportunity.
Good first impressions are imperative, as judgments are made quickly. Your personal presentation will be an influential factor in the interview outcome. Through a face-to-face (also via Skype) consultation we assist you in promoting yourself through a well chosen interview outfit for the respective company's profiles and culture. This helps the interviewer visualise you in the organisation and makes you feel at ease and confident. We also advise on important non-verbal communication signals.
The most effective interview preparation is specific and timely, targeting the particular company and people you are meeting. We advise on information to gather ahead of your meeting, as well as recommended areas to research. We help you develop what to convey, then plan and practice your performance across a range of interview questions, providing constructive advice on your technique. We also advise on the post meeting follow up.
When applying for a job abroad your CV needs to be presented in the correct CV format and language of the country in which you are seeking employment. A CV that doesn’t meet local best practice or address contextual nuances will put you at a disadvantage. We also assist with CV translations for those wishing to work in the UK and need a UK CV, as well as CV translations for overseas roles.
Application forms standardise information, however, there is still ample opportunity for you to stand out. Additional information sections provide the perfect place to highlight skills and achievements that closely match the role and person specification. Compelling profiles, personal statements and cover letters are valuable ‘selling’ tools. These not only establish your interest in a specific position, but also emphasise sought after qualities.
If you are not on LinkedIn, quite simply you need to be. The right profile will lead to networking and a choice of career moves to explore, through direct company approaches and recruiters. We assist by ensuring that your LinkedIn profile is informative, engaging and tailored to business social media. We also provide an overview of this online business network for those new to LinkedIn, allowing you to optimise its benefits and increase your contacts.
Outplacement services offer a positive departure experience from a company, and transition support into a new job. We assist by preparing interview winning CVs and cover letters, as well as LinkedIn profiles that generate interest and advice on job search strategies. Our interview preparation and coaching service enables departing employees to optimise their interview performance.
Personal Statement Writing
Whilst admissions for coveted higher education places require strong sets of examination results, your whole application needs to shine regardless of excellent predicted grades. Work experience, volunteering and extra curricular activities are now expected as standard and no longer enough to set you apart from your competition. Compiled and written well, your personal statement will make a strong persuasive case for your admission onto your desired course.
