FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I know if I need a professional CV?
There can be any number of factors why you have not received the acknowledgement and response which you hoped for, during your job application process. This is why we offer a free initial telephone consultation to critique any existing CVs you have. To book a time, simply e-mail your existing document to firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our consultants will review your CV and contact you with feedback.
There are so many CV writing firms to choose from – why should I use Grieves Pryce?
We believe that we offer a unique, cost effective service. All of our consultants have at least 15 years’ experience in the recruitment field, are up to date on the competitive nature of the marketplace and know exactly what employers, recruitment agencies and ‘head hunters’ look for in terms of format and content.
What happens once I place my order?
Once your order has been placed, one of our consultants will contact you by telephone to arrange a suitable consultation time with you and request any further information we will require such as an existing CV (if available) and details of a particular role you are applying for, if necessary. If at this stage, you have not paid, a secure payment will be taken over the telephone.
Why must I make a payment before I have received my CV?
The reason why we take payment up front is twofold; firstly because the in-depth telephone consultation which you will have with one of our consultations lasts around an hour and makes up part of the fee; secondly, because this eliminates the possibility of someone cancelling on the day of the consultation, or not making the consultation at all and taking up a valuable time slot which could have been used to assist another client.
What happens if I need to re-arrange my consultation?
We fully understand that unforeseen circumstance at work or home can arise on occasion and with this in mind, we are very flexible should you need to re-arrange your consultation time; all we ask is that you try to give us 24 hours notice, if possible.
What happens once I have received my first draft?
Depending on the service you have selected, you will receive a first draft CV in 1,2 or 5 working days. The consultant who undertook your initial consultation will then arrange a second telephone consultation with you, at a time convenient to you and discuss any comments and/or amendments and additions you would like to make before sending you the final draft.
What happens if I am not happy with the draft CV provided?
In the highly unlikely event that you are not satisfied with the draft CV provided in terms of content, or layout, simply contact our Partner Tracey Thomas who will personally ensure that the issues are resolved and the document is amended until you are completely happy with the result.
What happens after I have received my final CV?
Grieves Pryce are not only a professional CV writing firm; we pride ourselves on our ability to offer ongoing support and advice to our clients. Depending on which package you choose, we will make selected updates or amendments to your CV document free* of charge over a period of 6-12 months.
