The CV has had a huge impact, as well as the LinkedIn page that you did also. I immediately saw an uptick in folks messaging me for new potential opportunities, and even got compliments from friends and colleagues who look at my profile and were impressed with how it looked and the context. I have recently secured a Director level position at large global electronics company with a package that exceeded my current one by far and believe my CV played a huge part in getting the conversation started and my foot in the door.
City CV provided me with exactly what I was looking for. Fast response times, quick, easy, and straightforward processes resulting in a CV that accentuated my skills in a truthful but excellent fashion. Devin was very professional and easy to work with, giving great recommendations and letting me know his option on something but always ultimately wanting me to be satisfied with the result.
G.P. ... Director
Over the weekend I shared my revised Non-Executive CV with a number of bodies that I had previously approached for Non-Executive Director positions.
I have received two phone calls already this morning from different people who want to discuss opportunities with me.
What a fantastic result! Thank you for your help.
M.J. ... Director, Finance
I received my new look CV earlier this morning and initial glance is one of ‘I would want to hire myself!’ – really excited to see its impact when applying for roles which will hopefully lead to landing commensurate opportunities.
Alistair ... Finance Director
Thanks a lot for sending across the LinkedIn profile. I am indeed very pleased with the result.
A.H. ... Banking Director
I would like to thank you for the professionalism I experienced when I asked you to re-write my CV. In my opinion, the CV you wrote was outstanding and better presented my experience and showcased my results throughout my career. I’m looking forward in the next few weeks to applying for NED and potential new opportunities with more confidence.
David ... Chief Information Office / Chief Operating Office
I have looked over the CV and letter and I am very impressed and indeed overjoyed at the outcome. Thank you, thank you and thank you
John ... Senior Executive
Thanks for sending through the CV, I’m really pleased with it as it looks fantastic. A million times better than I could have ever achieved!
Mark ... Head of Finance
It's one of the first times I haven't procrastinated on spending/investing in this kind of support and it's so far given me a great boost to read my history with greater clarity than I could have ever written myself, so you lot, in my book are stars for just that!
S.H. ... Head of Human Resources
Not only did I get an interview, I bypassed the long list interviews and went straight through to the shortlist.
Niamh B ... Board Executive
Many thanks to you both and the rest of the team for your work on my LinkedIn profile.
I am very happy and I would have no hesitation in recommending you going forward. The process was as straightforward, useful and easy as promised.
N McB ... Commercial Director
Thank you! I am really pleased, the CV has exceeded my expectations. Thanks both for your input, genuinely ‘over the moon’!
James ... Department Head
This looks great. Thank you indeed for all the hard work you have put into this in a very short space of time. I know it was a tall order over the weekend.
S. Ali ... Senior Strategic Leadership Executive
Looking to reach the next level in my career, I found that despite my technical competency, I wasn’t best placed to communicate how my particular skill set would translate to the executive level.
Initially sceptical of the merit of a professional CV review, I arrived at City CV after realising that the conversion rate for my applications was around 7% - not great.
The consultant I was given, Karl, who, contrary to my rather arrogant assumption, knew my industry backwards, and was able to walk me through my profile from the perspective of my target employers, and through one-to-one conversation, iterated through until we had a CV that communicated exactly what was needed – no more, no less.
The effect was immediate, with my conversion rate skyrocketing to 40%, 4 job offers, and ultimately a 38% salary increase.
Naturally, I now consider the services of City CV as essential to my career progression as networking and conventional CPD. An absolute no-brainer, worth every penny - cannot recommend strongly enough.
M.G. ... Project Manager IT
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
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
Thanks a million again for what is an excellent piece of work. First outing for my new CV has already got me an interview so fingers crossed!
Kevin F ... CFO
Thank you for the excellent and dynamic CV and LinkedIn profile you have prepared for me. The achievements you have included reinforce very positively my experience and competencies. The result is very impressive.
I.B. ... Director of Finance, Switzerland
Thank you SO much for your support and advice. The interview was a success and I have made it to MD (at top tier bank).
I cannot express how grateful I am with your support in such short notice. I had a quick look at my CV and cover letter, there is no way I could get this outcome on my own. Both look great.
In addition, thank you very much for all your side suggestions (e.g. websites) as well. I really appreciate your work. I will definitely mention your valuable services to friends / colleagues.
Anonymous ... Senior Marketing Executive
I really appreciate the effort you put into both my CV and Linked In profile, and the quality of the output. Thank you once again for all your help, and I look forward to working with you again in the future.
A.C. ... Transformation Programme Director
I sent my new CV out and immediately got my first contract!
I secured a month long contract with a bid consulting company which was exactly what I wanted. I've not doubt that Devin's brilliant writing and the amazing format, with all the key information pulled out and presented in a compelling way, secured me the contract.
Can't thank you enough.
S.J. ... Global Head of Bids
I would like to say thanks for the tremendous work you carried out. I am extremely satisfied with the work. The amount of calls I am having from agencies who are viewing my CV is enormous.
M.S. ... Senior Accountant
Your team have done a very nice job on my new CV and LinkedIn profile and I feel it is money well worth spent. Thank you all for your efforts.
J.P. ... TECHNOLOGY LEADER
Thank you for your attention and patience at all times in concluding my CV. I found your services to be very professional and of a high standard.
Sukhbir ... Senior Business Development Leader
First of all a huge thank you, I am so happy with the words and expression that he found to describe me and my career and how he pointed out my achievements. I love the cover letter and the CV.
Amira ... Managing Director
I’ve reviewed the CV (and used it already a couple of times), and I am very happy with the result, so you can consider this mail as official sign off. A special thank you for Lauren for her excellent work! I will not hesitate to recommend you to colleagues, actually I’ve already started doing so.
M.T. ... Senior IT Contractor
The City CV team did a great job of my CV. I’ve just started my job as a Director in Operational Risk, a lot of credit to the City CV team as I now have exactly the role I want.
Simon ... Director Operational Risk
Thank you very much for writing my CV. I am very happy with the final product. Really appreciate the time you took during our consultation to really understand what I was looking for and identifying my strengths. Thank you very much for all your assistance and for writing my CV so quickly. I will definitely recommend City CV to friends
R.A. ... Senior Human Rights Advisor
Thanks for assigning such a great team member to work with me, my CV and then with my LinkedIn profile. He has great interpersonal skills, adapts well, is fast and does give one the feeling being in ‘good hands’. He must be one of the best in your team! I thank you very much for staying in touch and for coordinating the effort to get me a professional CV and I think a good LinkedIn profile.
Martin ... Senior Executive
You may recall that you helped me to reorganize my CV and LinkedIn profile a few months ago because I was looking for an opportunity that would help me moving from Italy to the UK. I would like to thank you very much for the help and effort that you put into this, because in fact it has been the turning point of my professional and personal life: after so many months going nowhere with my original CV, something clicked and I was extremely honoured to be interviewed by many startups and corporations such as Google, HP, Dell, Amazon and Philips.
I am very happy to share the news that my family dream has come true and that we are now happy residents in London.
What’s more, I managed to change my job from a technical job to an evangelist and marketing job, which is what I was truly looking for. In fact I have recently accepted an offer and have started to work as a Cloud Evangelist and Product Marketing Manager in the Cloud Centre of Excellence in London and very much happy for my new adventure! The whole family moved over and are already enjoying our new home and English life. Thanks again for being instrumental for such a huge change in my life.
Marco C ... Business Relationship Manager
