Young lady at a desk looking at her CVI believe you’re an expert on yourself and therefore best suited to draft your own CV or application form(s). What’s more, pulling together all the information to include is an excellent and indeed eye-opening voyage of discovery and a great pre-cursor to interview preparation. That said, CV writing doesn’t come naturally to many of us and we are often guilty of procrastination. Getting an independent careers expert to review your CV / application form(s) will help get you noticed by employers and / or legal recruiters, enabling you to secure that dream job more quickly.

Who is this for?

Trainees looking for external NQ roles, associate lawyers at all levels of PQE, career changers looking to draft a non-legal CV, and returners

What’s involved?

2 x Zoom sessions lasting 60 mins each

Rather than simply doing all the preparation and drafting for you, a CV / job application advice session with me comprises an initial one-to-one session, lasting up to 60 minutes to discuss your needs as well as top tips for pulling together an eye-catching sector specific CV or application form. You will then be encouraged to go away and have a go at putting together a draft. For clients wanting help with CVs I can share relevant templates with you. Once ready, you can book an optional follow-up session with me, also lasting up to 60 minutes, to run through relevant edits / changes.

*It is customary to invoice clients in advance of session(s). Assuming you decide to go ahead, I will send you an invoice via email with my bank details. As soon as payment is received I will send you a Zoom invite, and though I aim to be as flexible as possible and happy to schedule sessions in around your work commitments, the fee is non-refundable if you cancel with less than 24 hours’ notice.
