Description: Customer service works during business hours – less than that to be more precise. Price range is rather unreasonable.
This CV writing service offers a range of job-search related products, such as CVs, personal statements, completion of job applications forms, and LinkedIn Profile writing. The website does not impress much, the details about the service are few, and are mostly written as an advertisement rather than description of services.
This company has offices in London, Manchester, and Birmingham. As for the latter, customers can even make an appointment at the office, but it should be scheduled in advance. Do not expect this company to provide customer support round the clock. In fact, they work between 9 am and 3 pm Monday to Friday only. However, their phone lines are open 9 am to 9.30 pm 7 days a week.
Prices for certain services are surprisingly low, at the same time some services are quite expensive. This company offers CVs to people with different amounts of experience. So those who only start careers – with 0 to 3 years of experience – can get a CV at £23. That price is very low. I haven’t seen prices like that at other websites. Management CV costs £129 – and this is not cheap at all. These guys complete application forms at £49-£129, depending on the type of form. This option is also expensive. LinkedIn profile writing costs $£49.99, and specialist LinkedIn profile costs £89.99; I did not find the explanation of difference between these 2 services. Anyway, the price range is quite wide and while some prices are reasonable, some aren’t really. Well CV writing would cost me £39, it’s because my category is 3 to 10 years of experience. I thought it was too cheap, besides the jobs that I had were quite demanding and I had many duties, so there is a lot to write actually. I was convinced that it was better to pay a bit more and to be sure that my CV would look perfect in the end – I don’t trust low prices. So I ordered at another service at a reasonable price I must say.
There is a standard delivery option – it’s 3 days, this one is sold at the standard price. And rush delivery costs additional £20 and allows getting documents the next day.
I was not really impressed by the website. I think they could have made a section with explanation of all their services so I would not have to contact customer support to find out which service implies what. I could not appreciate huge difference in prices for CVs of different levels. However, I think that those who only start their career and can’t really pay a lot for a resume might try this service; if it does not work as expected, at least there’s not much lost.
