Eric's CV Case Study

Previous Job


In a nutshell

Wasn't sure what he wanted, needed affordable fix.

The challenge

Eric has struggled to find work for quite a while. He's intelligent, but on paper was never the perfect fit for any employer looking at his old CV. And, he wasn't ready to spend a lot of money on something that already felt "good enough."

How Jacob, a TopCV writer, helped Eric

Eric used the kitchen-sink approach to CV writing and threw everything he might want to do into one page. This is a problem for a number of reasons, even if everything he talks about is right. First, we wove all his objectives together to help them relate to each other, in a narrative that made sense. Second, we replaced vague skills like "interpersonal communications" with specific assets like "complex calendar management." In Eric's situation, specific reads much better to both the human eye and sorting algorithms (computer programs that let hiring managers find people with certain skillsets).

We also spent some time with the presentation. A great confident story needs a look to match, so we went with a more professional look than his unformatted CV. Overall, I was happy we could get so much done with just the Professional Growth package!

In his own words

I bought TopCV's CV review and have been recommending it to all of my friends. Applying for jobs online is like fishing - you're only going to catch something if you have good bait. TopCV gives you that bait... Worth every penny.
