has anyone ever used these services, had the CV written professionally?

If so was it worth the money?

I personally haven't used one but a mate who recently got retrenched did and he reckoned he had to do most of the work himself.

What are they charging?

A professional resume gets you in the front door so if the charge isn't over the top then it would be worth it.

Thats the idea, I have only ever been to 1 interview where i was not offered the job, so its getting my foot in the front door.

It costs about $200 I am thinking it is probably worth the expense

It'd be worth it for the $200 Dan.

Just make sure they put enough into presentation and visuals to give it "cut through".

It pays to be "remarkable" when looking for a job, doesn't it Wheel?

What are you going to apply for. Maybe I could create a position that suits?

Some advice. I looked into this a while ago. I spoke to my sis who is HR manager for a large multinational and she advised me against it. Recruiters can spot them a mile away and view it more as laziness than anything else.

thanks for the head up. I still might go through with it as my CV is a mess at the moment and want to maximize the potential

Clon - ive had the same advice from someone in the same position. They also added the best thing to do is get as many resumes as you can and copy the things that you think are good.

I followed the advice above and I landed my current job on my resume alone - i was the only 1 interviwed and only 5 mins before being offered the job. Didnt even apply for it.

Basically on the front page you need to win the job - have your job skills in point form for quick understanding is the underlying rule i think.

Yeah I know all of the tricks and tips for a cv and mine is fairly good now, but think for $200 it could benefit from being jazzed up a bit

Its clean and has some good content, but it could do with being a lot neater. Its landed me a lot of interviews in the past, but on my salary $240 is well worth the cost if just to see if it improves
