"Thanks for all your hard work. The CV's and letters are quite brilliant and there is no doubt that your input will make the chance of employment so very much more likely." A.B. Bottesford, Leics.

"Just had to contact you to thank you for the CV you did for me.
It's been fantastic! I have applied for three vacancies, got three interviews and already been offered the jobs for two of them, and expecting to hear from the third soon. All the interviewers said the CV was excellent and one said the cover letter alone got me the interview straight away as he was so impressed with it. The CV was the best he's seen. So thank you for the quality of your product and the promptness of your service. And the cover letter was absolutely fantastic - this must be an essential part of any CV." S.L. Oldbury, West Midlands.

"New CV is faultless. I appreciate the time and effort you put into it, and you're right about the cover letter, very powerful and strong. Once again I appreciate your time and will 100% be recommending you to anyone who requires your services." S.N. Middlesbrough.

"Thought I'd mail you some more feedback. I had sent my old CV to a company that I have been trying to get into for a while and also a number of colleagues have also tried with no results. I thought I'd chance my arm and retry using the CV you prepared for me. Guess what? I got a reply within 24hours inviting me to meet with the Global Operations Manager when I'm next back in the UK. That alone has shown me how useful and valuable it has been to use your service. It has given me reassurance that I will certainly receive replies now when I submit my new 'Powerful' CV. Thanks again and apologies for initially being a 'doubting Thomas'!!" J.D. Saudi Arabia.

"...To see how good your CV was I showed it to my sister who is a sales manager and used to viewing CVs. She thought it was excellent and that I've done a good thing in finding you to write it. My confidence has certainly been boosted and I want to thank you." V.G. Birmingham.

"Just wanted to drop you a few lines and say a very big thank you for the excellent service that you provided me with. My CV was so professional. I used it to apply for two positions and have been luckily enough to have been offered them both - not bad in the current climate!!! I fly out on Friday to start my new job and firmly believe the CV you prepared for me was a big factor in getting me to interview. If you have anybody who is unsure about the quality of the service you provide I'm more than happy to vouch for your excellent service and professionalism." F.G. Chesterfield

"I have just seen both the cover letter and CV. I'm happy to say that I am very pleased indeed with the result. I offer you my most sincere thanks for your work. Hopefully with this I will be able to find employment much easily. Again, thank you very much for your time and consideration." J.M. London

"Having compared the old/new versions, there is certainly no comparison - you have done a fantastic job and I am very appreciative of the clarity and focus you have given me." E.D. Middlesex.

"I have accepted a job today which I got with the help of your CV. In total I was offered 3 jobs, not bad going in this dreadful recession. Your CV was a big help! Thanks again." D.B. York.

"Just thought you would like to know that I have secured a position for the 4th January. Since contacting you I have had four interviews, two of which would have led to job offers in addition to the job I have taken. Many thanks for your help." R.P. Stafford.

"Thank you very much for this great work. The letter looks perfect! I will not change a word in it. I will certainly recommend you to my friends and, in future, will directly ask for your services. I will not go through the agony of writing this kind of matter myself ever again." A.G-S. Luxembourg.

"This [CV Update] is perfect - thank you very much indeed. This was another excellent service. I will certainly use your services in the future." J.A. London.

"Thank you so very much for your time, effort and the finished CV. I'm very impressed by the way it has been written to take into consideration every aspect of my career to date and keep it to the two page length. I now feel confident in applying for jobs and distributing my new CV to the marketplace. ... Thank you for the covering letter it really does read well and as you said does not ramble on. I feel supremely confident that with the CV combined with the covering letter you have created for me, any job I apply for from now on will lead to interviews and job offers. Just to make sure that your efforts are not wasted and to improve my chances in stage two, I have purchased a copy of your interview skills CD-ROM. Any changes or developments that happen in my career I'll be in touch to request that you update my CV according to the same high standard as this version." J.H. Aberdeen.

"Many thanks for your reply. I am very impressed with the improved layout of the CV and approve both the CV and the cover letter. I am very grateful of your great support and professional assistance and hope to use your services once again but will recommend friends and acquaintances to your services." M.W. Nottingham.

"I have reviewed the CV and am thrilled with the results. The combination of the covering letter and CV should ensure some excellent results. Thanking you for all your assistance and I have already recommended CV-UK to a number of colleagues and my own staff." M.L-E. West Sussex.

"Just a short note to say that I posted my acceptance letter for my 'dream job' today. I truly believe that the CV you made (as well as the dynamic cover letter and the CD-Rom) had a lot to do with it. I spent ages on the CD-Rom. It was amazing to see all the traps I have fallen into in past interviews. ... During the panel interview, reference was made to my cover letter which was a great hit! ... Upon my return home, the phone rang at 8 o'clock with the headmaster offering me the post. ... I just wanted to say an enormous THANK YOU for your help with the whole procedure. There is no doubt in my mind that you helped to build my confidence which made me more relaxed and self-assured on the day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." P.F. Cambridgeshire.

"Thank you very much for the fast delivery. I am very confident with your work, and I will recommend you to whom it may concern." N.F. Switzerland.

"WOW! Not that I am in the position to judge but that looks excellent. It reads better and looks better as well. Thank you very much. Even if I say so myself a job very well done." C.P.A. London

"Perfect ... many thanks! This is exactly as required and I am most grateful. What more can I say! Thanks once more for all your kindness and efforts in producing the CV ... I guess the rest is up to me!" C.B. Leicester.
