What to expect when you work with TopCV

You know that a professionally written CV is key to an improved job search. In fact, it's been proven that a CV written by an expert makes you 32 per cent more likely to land a job and worthy of a higher salary.

Now you're looking to take the plunge toward a shorter, better job search. But what is it actually like to work with a professional CV writer? Here, we've outlined the steps of the TopCV process. When you choose to upgrade your job search, your experience will look something like this:

Consider your options

TopCV offers three different professional CV-writing packages to choose from based on your needs. Whether you want only a CV rewrite or are seeking a cover letter and LinkedIn overhaul, you can pick what's best for you. Learn more here.

Sign up

Once you've decided to up your job-search game, it's time to place your order. To sign up and purchase your package, you can go to this link or reach us by phone at +44 (800) 0293 253. A TopCV representative is available to speak with you Monday through Friday from 7:00 to 16:00 GMT.

Complete the questionnaire

Upon placing your order, you'll be directed to a questionnaire asking for information about your career. Expect to include your current CV, job listings that interest you, and details like your key strengths, major accomplishments and job-search concerns.

You may wonder why your CV alone isn't enough. Well, your CV only tells us what you did in the past, and we need some insight into your future goals so we can help you get there. Additionally, some of the most precious gems of your work history may not be in your current CV. Your writer needs all the information about your career story so they can highlight the absolute best bits.

Since this is the information your writer will use to craft your new CV, it's important to be as thorough as possible.

Make a profile

Upon submitting your questionnaire, you'll be invited to make a profile on our portal. Here, you can communicate with your writer and track your order's status with a progress bar. Consider it your hub with everything you'll need for a smooth rewrite experience.

You'll also find options to upgrade to further boost your job search. If you decide you want to add to your order, whether it's a cover letter rewrite or LinkedIn makeover you previously overpassed, you can do so through the portal. Plus, there are extra bonuses available like a phone consultation with your writer or a thank-you letter for when you follow up after an interview.

Meet your match

Our network features over 1,000 professional writers across a variety of industries. Your questionnaire will give us insight into your industry, goals and needs, and we'll use that information to match you with the expert best poised to make your career story shine.

In the portal, you'll see a timeline of your writer-match process. Or, just look out for an email notification that will let you know when we've found the right writer for you.

Sit tight

Your writer will work their magic on your CV. You'll be notified via email when your first draft is ready to be viewed in your portal. It will be delivered within seven business days of the submission of your questionnaire. If you want it sooner, you can upgrade to a 48-hour rush service.

In the meantime, you can check out these tips for what to do to set up for a more successful job search.

Provide feedback

Because your voice matters, you will have the opportunity to provide feedback for your writer. Through the portal, you can work together on up to two revisions of your new CV, to be completed within seven business days of receiving your initial draft.

Seal the deal

After collaborating with your writer, the final draft awaits. Download your polished, professional CV and get ready for a renewed job search. Because you will always have access to your portal, you can return at any time to view and re-download your documents.

With interviews surely on the horizon, you may want to consider preparing with the help of an interview coach.

Land the job

Armed with a shiny new CV, you're ready to tackle the job search. We wish you the best of luck as you submit your professionally written CV. If you're anything like our past customers, who were job seekers that worked with one of our CV-writing pros, you'll be signing a contract in no time.

If 60 days of job hunting goes by and you haven't received double the amount of interviews, some CV-writing packages are eligible for a rewrite, free of charge. Just let us know and we'll take another look.

Now that you know what to expect from the TopCV process, take a look at your options for getting a polished CV by the pros.
