Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of a professionally written CV?

While technology has helped to make jobs more accessible, it has also made the job search process — and the CV writing process — more nuanced. To have job search success, your CV has to appeal to both the CV scanning software and the hiring manager.

If you’re not trained to understand what each are looking for, your CV might be getting lost in the “CV black hole”. When you work with a CV writing service, you’re investing in a quicker job search, and a more fruitful and satisfying career.

A professionally written CV…

  • ...helps you find a job faster.

    Working with a professional CV writer ensures your CV will not be passed over by applicant tracking software. Over half of TopCV customers find their next job within 90 days of receiving their completed CV.

    For every day you go without a job, you’re missing out on that day’s pay—even if this only shortens your job search by a day or two, you’ve made your money back and more.

  • ...makes you more valuable in the eyes of recruiters and hiring managers.

    Recruiters valued candidates with professionally written CV to be worth 7% more than when assessed using their self-written versions. With a professionally written CV, you can help ensure your next position will come with a bigger paycheck.

  • ...saves you the most precious resource of all — your time.

    Your time is valuable and finite. You can spend your precious free time writing an ineffective CV, or you can outsource the task to professionals, get your time back and see results faster.

How does the CV-writing process work?

TopCV uses the expert knowledge of our CV writers and feedback from CV-scanning software called an applicant tracking system (ATS). An ATS filters applicants based on keywords and formatting.

If your CV is not created with the ATS in mind, it may prevent you from securing callbacks and interviews for jobs. TopCV analyzes your CV using ATS technology and our expert writers break down this analysis to figure out how to make your CV more effective for the jobs you want.

Your writer collaborates with you on a first draft, which will be delivered to you in about a week. Then, you'll have another week to provide feedback to your writer, with up to two rounds of revisions. The process typically takes one to two weeks.

Does TopCV have writers in my industry and region?

Our network of over 1,200 writers has experience in over 65 industries. We connect you with a CV-writing expert for your industry.

Our CV writers with expert knowledge of your industry are qualified in showcasing your accomplishments by using the same terminology, that hiring managers look for in your field. This means that important keywords, along with your skills and achievements, will stand out to hiring managers and satisfy all electronic screening tools.

How do I collaborate with my CV writer?

Once you’re matched with the perfect writer for you, communication and collaboration are simple and effective. All communication with your writer is done via email. If you would prefer telephone communication with your writer, you can add it on to your CV package for an additional fee. Our CV-writing process is completely confidential and collaborative between the writer and the client.

We use your old CV and a CV worksheet, which is provided to you during the process as primary sources of information. If you don’t have a CV, don’t worry, your writer will send you a brief questionnaire that will provide all the information that we need to get started.

What is TopCV’s 60-day guarantee?

Professionally written CVs get results. Our team of professional CV writers are trained to position you as an achiever, which will help you find a job faster.

If you are not receiving two times more job interviews within 60 days of receiving your professionally-written CV, we will write it again one time, free-of-charge. You must notify us in writing within 180 days of receiving your final copy. Only certain packages are eligible for our guarantee.
