Contact me initially by telephone to discuss your requirements. This will
usually result in a face-to-face interview either at my office or by personal
visit to your home at a time to suit you, if necessary outside normal working hours.
When I meet you, I will discuss with you the general content, strategy and
layout of your CV, and agree a timescale for production to meet your requirements.
I will ask pertinent questions to discover facts that will demonstrate
your true worth to a prospective employer. At this first meeting, both
you and I can decide whether we think I will be able to produce a document
that will enhance your chance of securing the position you desire. Should
you decide that you do not wish to proceed, no charge will be made.
Occasionally, where a face to face meeting is not possible, the alternative
of telephone conversations and exchanges of email has proved to clients
a satisfactory way of proceeding.
With your consent, I will prepare your CV, not only to satisfy you, but
also my own exacting high standards.
To this end, no CV will be skimped, and sufficient hours will always be devoted to yours.
You will be provided with a draft copy of your CV for your careful scrutiny.
Any amendments that you require will be made, and this process of adjustment
will continue until your are fully satisfied with the document. Usually
email is used to transmit draft documentation to allow your unpressured perusal.
Charges for CV production range from £50 - £150 depending on the length
and complexity of your career. In the majority of cases, £120 or
less can be charged. Be warned against substantially cheaper options that
are often little more than hack typing services. Remember, you are seeking
a document that could be instrumental in radically altering your life's course.
The quoted price will include 5 copies of your CV on quality paper
and / or an MS Word version saved in any electronic form.
Additional copies can be provided at 50p per sheet.
Your CV will be saved on computer file indefinitely to enable future amendments or
updates should you require them.
A suitable job-specific or standard-format covering letter can be provided
for a charge not exceeding £25.
I have prepared many other usefully persuasive letters for clients for a fee
often comparable to that charged for covering letters.
