What you get with this Hourlie

Do you need to boost your career progression profile?

In our saturated job market, busy employers can take under 10 seconds to scan your CV. Accidental errors and irrelevant information can overshadow your suitability when reaching for that first role, career change or promotion.
I provide a high-quality proofreading and editing service for CVs, cover letters and job applications.

I combine my HR talent hiring experience with a methodical and human-approach to reveal how you can tailor your application profile so your skills and experience shine through.

– Reduce the awkward task of self-reflection with an objective, outsider review
– Invest in yourself to gain a competitive edge on other applicants
– Increase confidence in your application with a professional edit
– Direct the focus to relevant information by reducing unnecessary text and the length of your CV
– Create a positive impression on the hiring team by submitting a conscientious application

– A proofread of a 2 page CV and cover letter (up to a total of 2000 words) to ensure accuracy, consistency and clarity
– One revision that covers:
• Language: spelling, grammar and punctuation
• Flow: long or fragmented sentences and paragraphs
• Clarity: suggestions to develop the text
• Typography: font style, size and colour
• Basic reformat of the layout/style to tighten up the flow of the content if relevant (this is not a redesign)
– Turnaround of 48 hours
– Returned document that’s been edited using Word’s Track Changes so you retain full control to accept the edits as appropriate and work through any queries
– Proofreading from a native English professional with a background in both HR/recruitment and proofreading/copy-editing, and a BSc in Human Communication

I also work on written materials for businesses, authors and students.
