Thank you for your work. I’ve uploaded your work into my LinkedIn profile and within hours I have been contacted by recruiters, it works.

Jamie ... Senior Project Manager

I am glad to inform you that I received three offers, two from leading investment banks and one from a consulting company. I would like to thank you and your team for the great CV your team did for me and the interview coaching. Please convey my thanks to everyone.

KD ... Investment Banking PM

I would like to thank you for the wonderful work you did. I am very pleased and satisfied with my CV. A thank you to all those that contributed with an input, much appreciated.

Leo V ... Banking Professional

I wanted to say that I am so absolutely pleased with the outcome of my CV, I cannot thank you enough! You achieved exactly what I had hoped you would…the investment was thus worth every penny 🙂 I have already recommended you to my sister, who may be getting in touch with you soon! All the best and thank you again!

Anita ... Investment Manager

I aced round one interview with the MD at UBS in London with your advice. Rounds two and three next week!

F. E. ... Investment Banking Sales

Love the profile. Have updated LinkedIn. Thanks so much!

Kate ... Investment Banking

Thank you! I am really pleased, the CV has exceeded my expectations. Thanks both for your input, genuinely ‘over the moon’!

James ... Department Head

Form filling is not one of my strengths and you took this worry away from me by preparing convincing answers to the most important questions. I even got good feedback during the interview about how thorough my answers were. Thank you again!

Peter ... Banking

Tony is even more fantastic than you suggested. Really. Our sessions have been extremely beneficial to me. I felt much more prepared. I’ll keep you posted of the final outcome.

P.B-G. ... Banking MD

I went to City CV for help after being rejected at the interview stages of 3-4 different graduate jobs. After one session with Victoria, and one session from Tony, not only was I much better prepared to answer competency questions but my confidence had been restored. On the day of the interview every question asked by the interviewer we had covered the previous day and I found out 2 hours later that I had successfully got the job! I would recommend City CV to any of my friends!

Tom ... Broker

City CV has been a great help to me – Victoria McLean completely transformed my CV: I received nine Investment Banking internship offers within the space of a year!

Ife A ... Banking Graduate

Firstly, thank you for the time and effort that you have put into writing my new CV. First impressions are that it reads really well and I am amazed at how you were able to condense so much information onto two pages.

Zeb ... Broker

Many thanks for the CV and cover letter, they are perfect and I am very happy with the results. Thanks for a great effort on your part and hopefully it works a dream in landing me a fantastic job!

David S ... Investment Analyst/ Equity Analyst

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 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

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 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 would like to thank you for your kind support and efforts in assisting me with my CV and LinkedIn Profile. I am extremely pleased with the result and look forward to keeping you appraised of my progress.

R.I. ... Investment Manager

Thank you for your job, no more amendments are needed: my CV and cover letter now look great! I will contact you later on for an interview coaching session quotation. Thank you, Lauren and all the team!

Eliana ... Private Equity Analyst

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

Thank you very much for the first draft of my CV. I am thoroughly impressed!

Joan ... Investment Analyst

Thank you very much for a fantastic CV. Using all the right financial buzz words together with a very high level of written English I am absolutely sure that I will soon be back on the job market again. I will definitely use City CV again.

J.B. ... Senior Equity Trader

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

Wow, the CV looks stunning! I think it’s really, really good.

B.P. ... Investment Analyst

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 used City CV to help me organise a new LinkedIn profile as well as to redo my CV. The service was very good from Victoria and her team, and I am very pleased with the result which surprised me on the upside. The outcome is well worth the investment and I love the clean practical layout of my CV and LinkedIn. Highly recommend.

Anonymous ... Investment Analyst

I would say my CV is pretty damn good, you have done wonders!

A. H. ... Senior Trader

Thanks a lot for sending across the LinkedIn profile. I am indeed very pleased with the result.

A.H. ... Banking Director

Thanks for sending my CV through, looks very good. It has successfully synthesised my spread of experience into a consistent theme that is suitable for the private equity roles I will be trying for. Thanks, Nick, for the focused session you conducted.

T.P. ... Investment Leader, Private Equity

Tony is even more fantastic than you suggested. Really. Our sessions have been extremely beneficial to me. I felt much more prepared. I’ll keep you posted of the final outcome.

P.B. ... Banking MD
