   Home      The how, where and what of CV writing

Whether you need a quick touch up to your existing CV, a complete overhaul or a CV from scratch, you have come to the right place!!

The how, where and what of my CV WRITING services


I will ensure that your CV has the HERE I AM effect it deserves.


There are two options, email or if it's close enough to come and see me in Goodwood, Cape Town. Obviously meeting face-to-face is the preferred method but I can still assist with your CV via email.


You need to email your old updated CV or all relevant information (personal info, work history, education, etc.) to me. Having a solid recruitment background it's not always necessary to see the person, although I am still very old school and love to meet the people I work with.


More importantly I need to know what your future plans are as this will have a major impact on how we structure your CV.


Your career can be defined as the pathway you choose that will determine the types of work you will be doing to make a living. It's in your best interest to give yourself choices and opportunities to optimize your efforts, productivity and enjoyment.


Please note that I provide a Professional CV Writing Service and not a copy writing / typing service.  My approach to compiling a CV is making sure that it becomes your personal branding document and therefore you need to work with me. The most important question I will ask you is – “what are your future plans?”


This is a very important but very difficult question to answer, and the best is that you think about this before you engage with a professional CV writer. The better understanding you have of your needs and desires when it comes to your career, the more guidance you can give me. And the more direction you give me, the better the end product will be.

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.  – Steve Jobs
