I was fortunate enough to have attended Mildred’s CV workshop many years ago and so when the time came for my own CV makeover, it made perfect sense to go back to Mildred. I needed a CV that would attract partners and employers from the global education and training sectors. In order to achieve this result, Mildred and I worked together going back and forth as she suggested styles, words and phrases and I fed back based on my experience in the global market and in the end, we had a finished project with which we were both satisfied. The results have been evidenced in the positive responses I have received since I began disseminating my new CV. I would not hesitate to recommend Mildred and her CV makeovers as a tool to enhance your entry into new career spaces.
Taking voluntary severance after 14 years with the same company, to say my CV needed an overhaul is an understatement! Mildred is THE go to person for providing an up to date and comprehensive CV in no time at all. Before the makeover, my old-and-battered CV and covering letter wasn’t doing the trick with agencies and interim consultancies and received few responses from enquiries. Since distributing the version from Mildred, I found my CV was generating genuine call backs and conversations with recruiters and clients – for roles that appealed to my interests and skill set. I have no hesitation in recommending CV Makeover Expert to anyone looking for work at any level within their career path.
I needed to create a professional and concise CV for a very important interview. I knew of Mildred’s services and had heard many great things about her. I first had a CV review which highlighted all the areas that needed improvements. Due to time restraints and her obvious expertise in this area, I decided to have the Silver Makeover. This was completed speedily and to say that I was impressed with the results is an understatement. She condensed a very wordy CV to just 1 page (which is what was needed in this situation). The information was punchy, concise and clearly set out. I am pleased to say that I got through to a second interview. The CV definitely was a part of that. I would categorically recommend using her services. Having a professional CV is paramount. Thank you Mildred.
