The Merits of Free CV appraisals

Summary

Over the last few years, many companies have started to offer CV appraisals to the extent that the market is now flooded with offers of free advice. I remember the days when we and one or two other CV writing companies offered such a service and it became a very effective way of building relationships with customers and strutting our expertise on all things CV related.


Over the last few years, many companies have started to offer CV appraisals to the extent that the market is now flooded with offers of free advice. I remember the days when we and one or two other CV writing companies offered such a service and it became a very effective way of building relationships with customers and strutting our expertise on all things CV related. Now it seems that every man and his dog is an expert on CVs and the concept of having a free appraisal is often greeted with scepticism. I agree that there are some bad practices in the market ranging from over zealous sales people to emailed CV appraisals that contain more or less the same information for each and every person it is sent to. There was even a misinformed article on Lovemoney.com where a Journalist was accusing recruitment agencies of advertising false jobs purely to sell CV services to job seekers (anyone in the recruitment sector would know that placing a candidate is hugely more lucrative than selling a CV so I’m not sure where that notion came from). I do however think that if you are careful about whom you chose to appraise your CV, you are likely to receive highly informative and credible feedback that will either help you to write your own CV or give you that nudge that encourages you to seek professional assistance. Here at the CV & Interview Advisors, we provide all CV appraisals verbally (none of these standard / templated emails); you will talk to a down to earth and highly knowledgeable Consultant who has been senior management level in their own career; we will not just tell you what is wrong with your CV but what you (or we) could do to make it better; we don’t pressure you into a sale - in fact, most of our customers buy from us several days after first talking to us; and last but not least, we have spent many years researching our market so that our appraisals are based on fact and not conjecture.


Our appraisals truly are FREE of charge with no obligation, and we believe passionately that the vast majority of our customers feel very positive about how we approach the service. Why not contact us on appraisal@cvandinterviewadvisors.co.uk, visit our site at http://www.cvandinterviewadvisors.co.uk/jobseeker/6, or telephone us on 01274 408 222.
