Questions people ask about our free CV review.

Why don't you run my CV through an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) as part of the review?

That would be entirely meaningless - it's a gimmick some companies use to try to impress you and convince you to spend money with them. Keep in mind that by uploading your CV to a third party ATS service they may also be selling your data on. Providing you with an indication of how well your CV performs on a single ATS configured in a single way by a single person is very misleading. The fact of the matter is that companies who do this probably don't really understand how ATS work and that the report you get back will be full of highly irrelevant information as they're not even configuring their ATS for the type of role you might want to apply for. Ask for our ATS factsheet to find out more about this.

Why don't you give my CV a score like other companies do?

Scores are meaningless magic numbers; we don't deal in false information as this would be extremely dishonest of us. Instead we take a deep and honest look at your CV and report back on ways it can be improved in line with your goals. You are not a number and your CV is what represents you in the hands of recruiters, employers and head-hunters alike.

Another company said I come across as a doer and not an achiever; what do they mean?

If we had a Dogecoin for every time we've heard this one... This is standard copy-paste text that they use to bait you into placing an order with them. The same text is used in every single CV review they carry out no matter what the CV contains.

Do I have to buy your CV writing service if I go for a free CV review?

Absolutely not. We'll provide you with our full list of recommendations and you can then decide whether you want to rewrite your CV yourself or pay a fee for your CV writer to tailor it for you.

What if I don't want to have a call about my free CV review?

That is absolutely fine - just let us know once you have signed up for your review and your CV writer will message you their feedback instead.

How do I book my free 15 minute CV review call?

Once you have signed up for your free CV review you will be redirected to your review page. Use the 'Book Call' button there to schedule your session.

What if I don't see any convenient times and days for my free 15 minute CV review call?

Send us a few times and dates that work for you via chat on your review page. We always do our best to accommodate!
