Is it worth using a professional CV writer?

Using the services of a professional CV writer has become increasingly common in the employment market, which gives a competitive advantage to those with a professional CV and cover letter. It means their CV has been designed and written by an expert CV writer who understands how employers and recruitment agencies review CVs and how they reject poor applications. It is well worth investing in professional CV, as a professional CV writer’s insight can be critical in winning an invitation to interview.

Employing a professional CV writer to make an effective CV and cover letter is suitable for candidates at all stages of their career journey and throughout every employment sector. It is a particularly suitable option for candidates in these situations:

Who should use a CV writing service?

1. No existing CV

It can be daunting to find yourself in a situation where you suddenly need a CV for a role and have no experience in terms of what is required to sell yourself. In this situation, a professional CV writer can eliminate the risk of submitting a poorly prepared CV by writing the ideal CV for you.

2. An out-of-date CV

One of the most common reasons people make contact with a professional CV writer is to help them improve an out-of-date or outmoded CV or cover letter. A CV may lack the most recent experience and skills, be missing a contemporary presentation, or be focused on areas that are no longer relevant to a person’s career level or aspirations.

3. Refinement

Minor details can have a big impact when an employer is reviewing a CV. Many candidates with existing CVs use a professional CV writer to make precise refinements, where the CV writer can bring their wealth of expertise in producing top-class CVs to give an existing CV a competitive edge.

4. Graduates / Early Career

Employing a professional CV writer can be especially useful for graduates at the beginning of their career journey. When considering an internship, graduate programme, or travelling abroad for work, a specialist writer can play a crucial role in supporting a graduate in their early career.

5. New to the Irish employment market

CVs prepared outside of the Irish market may not be suitable for use when applying for jobs in Ireland. A local, professional CV writer can be extremely beneficial in supporting candidates to localise their CV and cover letter and help them avoid key mistakes.
