A professional CV (curriculum vitae) presents a complete record of your career including employment history, academic achievements, awards, publications, skills and training.
CVs are used among medical professionals, academics, technicians and scientists, teachers, researchers and executives to present their career achievements and academic backgrounds.
Recruiters and Employment Managers in specialised industries as well as the academic community often request a CV rather than a resume when advertising a job opportunity. The best CVs present your full career history and education giving tangible examples of key achievements.
I work with you until you are 100% satisfied that your CV is the best representation of your unique qualities and accomplishments. And, if you provide a copy of the advertisement, your CV can be tailored to any selection and evaluation criteria.

Once I receive all your details I email you with an ETA, but it’s usually back within 4-5 business days. It really depends on how much information is required and how far back we need to date your CV. I stay in contact with you by email through the whole process.
