Our entry level CV service is ideal if you are currently studying or have recently graduated and have little or no employment history.
Despite Brexit uncertainty, 2019's graduate labour market didn't appear to be negatively affected. However, research completed by independent market research company High Fliers suggests the UK’s top employers are cutting graduate vacancies by around 1% in 2020 following a two-year increase. A hard-hitting and attention-grabbing CV is more important than ever if you’re to stand out from other applicants.
Our in-house team of specialist graduate CV writers will utilise expert awareness of graduate recruiter requirements gained over the past 20 years to identify your strengths and promote to potential employers what you have achieved; be it academically, professionally or personally.

The primary objective of a graduate-level CV is to demonstrate your motivation, academic achievements and goals.
Recruiters will look to invest in your recent qualifications to prepare you for a position in their company. Employers won't expect you to possess years of experience on your CV, rather that you can demonstrate enthusiasm, motivation and a positive attitude. This can be achieved by including details of projects and dissertations that you have worked on - showcasing skills needed for the role.
What to take into consideration when writing a graduate CV:
Unless you have employment that is more recent and relevant than your qualifications, follow your opening profile with details of your academic achievements – including the university, dates, title of your degree and all relevant modules.
Provide evidence of your transferable skills by including all unrelated paid experience. For example: although your part time Sales Assistant job might not relate to your chosen career path, this period can be used to highlight skills, such as: communication, team collaboration and organisation, which are all transferable into any role.
Have you gained any unpaid (but relevant) experience? If so, include it! Just because you were not paid, doesn't mean you shouldn't include details of the skills you gained.
Usually, extra-curricular activities are not needed in a CV unless they relate to the position you're applying for. However, in a graduate / entry level CV, you should provide details of any extra-curricular activities that can
be used to highlight your motivation / achievements.
Entry level CVs are usually expected to be one or two pages.
"For anyone that thinks professional CV writers create a generic CV that employers will see-through, think again. I work in a very specific niche market that many people aren't aware exists and the CV consultant provided a highly personalised result. The CV consultant was more than happy to make any updates and was always available to discuss issues.
The service is worth more than double the amount charged. I personally do not know anyone that would not benefit from this service. I wish I came across this service many years ago. Go for it...."
