I just got my application answers from you and read them over. I am so happy with them. Thank you so much for the hard work and I am 100% satisfied.

Hyonsoo ... Banking Graduate

The CV is really well written and a huge improvement over what I had accomplished by myself, it flows nicely and is clearly set out. I feel it now has a higher quality without going overboard on quantity, everything is snappy and to the point, making it easier to read and delivering all the information about me which is critical to impart to employers.
Thank you so much.

Sam ... Graduate

I am really happy with my CVs and cover letter – please pass on my thanks!

Maria A ... Finance Graduate

Thank you very VERY much for such a fantastically impressive letter. It is a pleasure to read. It has an excellent writing style which catches the eye, reads with an easy flow, yet keeps positive tension and curiosity.

Iunian ... Banking Graduate

I wanted to share the good news that after several rounds of interviews and applications I ended up getting the graduate analyst role I wanted at an Investment Management firm.

Thanks to the coaching on Skype I was able to show myself in the best light possible at each of the 4 rounds of interview. The interview coaching also helped me emphasise the key points of my CV to really show how I could add value, something I had difficulties with in the past. It took quite a bit of practice but in the end it paid off and I am absolutely delighted with the results!

Once again, thanks a lot for your help in securing a great first job and I look forward to keeping in touch with you and the City CV team in the future as I progress in my career!

Pablo ... Investment Baking Gradute

I have done very well with my search for a job. I have recently been offered a place as a graduate trainee for Ernst and Young, Assurance, which I have accepted. I can’t wait to start. It was only my second interview and my first assessment centre. Whilst they were challenging, I felt confident going in and they said it showed. Thank you for all the help you gave me, it was invaluable.

James ... Audit

The interview coaching package is more helpful than I thought. After I failed one interview after another, I bought an interview coaching package from City CV. With your help I built my interview strategy, spotted my mistakes during interviews, learnt how to tell my story and can respond almost any competency question confidently. I would not have obtained the offer from DB without your help. Many thanks! I really appreciate the help I received from City CV and would highly recommend City CV to anyone who wants to improve his/her interview skills and success rate.

X.S. ... Accounting Graduate

Thank you for resending the finalised version of my cover letter. It does look fantastic! The cover letter commendably outlines my background and addresses all the relevant points. Thank you for concerted effort in amending my CV and cover letter. I am very pleased with the outcome of both projects. Looking forward to working with you again in the future.

Esther ... Analyst Graduate

I was completely daunted by the volume of questions on the application I had to submit until I had some training with you. After a short chat, my writer completely grasped my motivations for applying and the answers on the final form sounded exactly like I’d written them. Gave me the confidence to submit the form and talk about my answers further at interview. Great job!

Michael ... Graduate

I just wanted to say thank you again, Victoria. I truly believe that this new CV is the start of many wonderful opportunities to come my way this year. Please say a big thank you to Carter for the amazing job he's done for me.

A. Lewis ... Legal Graduate

I am thrilled with the CV, I really think it shows everything I’ve done in a light that the banks and Big 4 will be very impressed by. I was especially pleased with how Devin projected a real sense of professionalism and maturity throughout the whole document, and also the sheer volume of positive information that was included! It truly is an excellent piece of writing.

Piers ... Graduate

I absolutely love the CV, it exceeded my expectations and has already got me to the interview stage with some good companies which is obviously very encouraging and pleasing. Please pass on my gratitude to Godfrey and the rest of your team involved. I will almost certainly be using your expertise again in future and will be recommending you to others.

Sebastian B ... Banking Graduate

I am extremely pleased with the documents sent over and believe them to be excellent quality. I believe the greatest document of all was the cover letter and I am shocked at how well it was written, quite possibly the best cover letter I have ever seen in my life.

Alex ... Banking Graduate

I always thought my CV and interview technique was quite good, but after City CV totally revamped them I realised I was definitely in need of some changes. We did coaching sessions on everything from the competency interview to the group exercises and numerical and technical skills. I felt so prepared on my interview day that I actually really enjoyed it rather than feeling nervous and stressed like I normally do. To top it off I received an offer for the job and the interviewer remarked what a professional CV I had compared to many he had seen.

Sophie ... Banking Graduate

Over the summer I got you to do my CV, cover letter, LinkedIn profile and 300 word motivation letter for Goldman Sachs/JP Morgan. They have been a terrific help with regards to the quality of my applications and time I have saved.

Ryan ... Banking and Finance Graduate

I have got my new CV and feeling so happy. This is unbelievable. My CV could not be better than this. I really appreciate the help.

V.T. ... Banking and Finance Graduate

I have just been made an offer by J.P. Morgan which, given my poor application success rate, is attributed to City CV. I met Nick twice in person for both first and final round interview prep. His advice is invaluable and I recommend taking his suggestions fully on board. Nick does a terrific job of ensuring that you maintain coherence in high pressure interview situations. Thank you again for everything and I will most certainly refer friends over to you!

A.K. ... Graduate Analyst

Just to inform you, I have received the CV. I think you have done an exceptional job on it! It’s above the standards I could have expected. Once again thank you very much!

Franki ... Graduate

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for all the coaching you gave today; it has certainly put a lot of things into perspective for me and I now feel more confident about approaching interviews. I thought the session was very well thought out and I really enjoyed the banter; it made things a lot more easier to process. I hope you continue to deliver sessions with the same passion you both displayed today and hope City CV’s success continues.

Ali ... Finance Graduate

You are the best expert in CV-building I've ever talked to in my life. You really know what you are doing. I'm simply impressed.

K.M. ... Graduate Analyst

Thanks for all your help. The interview went really well, so well that I got the job.

Tristan ... Graduate
