Does every job seeker need professional resume-writing services?

No, not everyone needs professional help with their resume. That’s why our resume experts will review your resume; to determine whether it’s formatted correctly and successfully showcases your skills. If your resume is already in good shape, we will be sure to let you know!

How much does a professionally-written CV cost?

We offer multiple CV writing packages, so whether you’re an entry-level employee or a C-level executive looking to change careers, we have what you need.

Junior Level


Executive Level

If you’re wondering whether CV-writing services are tax-deductible, the answer is yes (in most cases). Speak to your accountant or our support team for further instructions regarding tax deductions. You can also visit the IRS website.

How does the CV-writing process work?

CVNow uses the expert knowledge of our CV writers, combined with feedback from CV-scanning software called applicant tracking systems (ATS). ATS filters applicants based on keywords and formatting, and CVNow analyses your CV using similar technology. Our expert writers break down this analysis to figure out how to make your CV more effective.

Your writer will collaborate with you to provide 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 three rounds of revisions, depending on the package. The process typically takes one to two weeks.

Does CVNow provide additional job-search services?

In addition to CVs, we professionally write cover letters and LinkedIn profiles. For help with interviews, we now also offer TopInterview, which provides proven strategies and customized interview coaching from the best in the industry.

Then, you'll have another week to provide feedback to your writer, with up to three rounds of revisions, depending on the package. The process typically takes one to two weeks.
