What about Your Test ?

There is nothing mysterious or secretive about our test. Essentially it involves asking the candidate to amend an existing CV, but following some guidelines. The guidelines are intended to help the candidate write more concisely yet powerfully at the same time. And this is the main stumbling block. It’s not easy to write more powerfully using fewer words. On the contrary, it’s very difficult! (Which is one reason why other companies don’t do it)

The first test we give candidates is essentially as described above, and this test alone rapidly sorts out the wheat from the chaff.

After this we have other tests, again based on various aspects of CV writing.

It sounds easy, but there is a lot more to it than meets the eye.

However, if you would like to become a CV writer, and think you can make the grade then please feel free to contact us to apply.
