Do You Need Help With Doing A Resume?

If you need help with doing a resume, you've come to the right place.

I'm an recruiter and interviewer and I read CVs and resumes every day. I'm able to provide professional help with CV and resume writing so you land interviews.

On the page before this I introduced my services and promised you 'before' and 'after' resume examples so you could see for yourself the difference professional resume help can make to your CV or resume.

Here is the 'after' resume example, reproduced by kind permission of Jane, the owner. You can see Jane's resume 'before' my help here.

Help With Doing A Resume - Is It For Me?

You've just read Jane's resume after my help. She wrote to me asking for help with doing a resume as she was concerned that hers wasn't good enough. She'd been invited to only 1 interview in 14 months.

In the last 3 months, she's been invited to 4.

If you would like help with doing a resume please contact me.

And If you'd like a second resume example, before and after my help, there's one here.
