Michael's CV Case Study

Previous Job

Finance Executive

In a nutshell

Needed Top-Notch, Fast, Relevant, Professional Writer.

The challenge

Michael is a successful CFO who had been passively looking for a new opportunity. He got a lead on a great new position, but needed to submit a formal application in two days.

How Joe S., a TopCV writer, helped Michael

I've been writing CVs professionally for six years and write about four finance CVs a week. Michael didn't have to spend much time teaching me business jargon, and in my first draft I made a suggestion to highlight his current technical skills, which he loved.

We were under the gun to get his application submitted, so I spent my first pass giving his CV a professional polish and rewording all of his tasks into accomplishments. "Managed quarterly cash reporting" didn't have the same zip as "Reduced quarterly financial reporting cycle from 50 days to 35 days."

Once he was comfortable with the general story arc and the look-and-feel, we reprioritised a few accomplishments and delivered a complete CV in less than 24 hours. I made him an updated LinkedIn profile using the same content in time for the application as well!

In his own words

Thanks! I already updated my LinkedIn page, looks impressive. I am happy with the new setup and revisions and will send it out very soon to another great prospect who has called me recently.
