I worked with Alisdair, who took a great care of my CV, considered my requests, requiring just 1 iteration for minor tweaks after initial draft. My new CV highlights my strengths very well in accurate and integrated fashion.

I am overwhelmingly glad I have reached out.

Highly recommend 👍

Reviewed on | Premium Resume Writing |Verified Purchase

I originally thought I'd just put together my own resume, but then decided there is enough riding on it that it is worth an investment. The writer I worked with was patient and professional. Some of the changes and suggestions they made were subtle, but the all added to a higher quality resume. Highly recommend.
