Frequently asked questions

How will our package workflow be structured?

We have developed a 5-step methodology for working with you. You can see a detailed overview of each step in our handy pdf workflow process guide.

How can I use the hours of personalised consulting in my package?

The number of hours of personalised consulting in each package go in addition to the list of fixed deliverables (e.g. New CV, Updated LinkedIn profile, Cover Letter template) to better respond to your unique needs in preparing for every stage of your job search and application process.To achieve the best result, we recommend that you divide the allocated hours of personalised consulting to:

 

  • Discuss your job options, employer types, visas etc.
  • Formulate the best job search strategy, including the use of LinkedIn
  • Prepare for interview and assessment centre training in English or German
  • Review additional cover letters, application forms, LinkedIn messages, email comms with a recruiter etc.
  • Get your documents proofread by a native English/German speaker
  • Cover additional questions, from visas to a job role, via WhatsApp/Email support

 

We track your time of personalised consulting – and you will always know how many hours you have remaining.

How long are the packages valid for?

Our packages are valid for 3 to 12 months from the date of purchase, depending on the package. Please see individual packages for the exact duration of validity. We would like to highlight that if for some reason you are unable to start working on the package straight away after the purchase, we will extend the validity of the package starting from the date of the first consultation as opposed to the date of purchase.

CV and LinkedIn writing – how does it work?

CV & LinkedIn writing service is performed in 4 stages.

1. CV formatting

We change the layout of your resume according to what employers want to see using our template that captures the best practice and years of our consultants’ experience.

2. Writing the compelling content

Wondering who actually writes the CV? We do. But to get from a blank page to a finalised document, we need your input and answers to our questions about your experience. First, we define your responsibilities and achievements, find correct job titles in English/German, highlight key competencies and add keywords to resonate with an employer in seconds. It then takes 2-3 rounds of iterations to produce a compelling CV.

3. Proofreading

Our native proofreaders check your CV for errors – your CV has to be mistake-free. We then send you the final version in a word doc format so you can adjust it to any relevant roles. Our clients often say, “I cannot believe that my experience and achievements sound so impressive!”

4. LinkedIn profile optimisation notes

Based on the proofread resume, we send you instructions on how to optimise your LinkedIn profile in English. The instructions cover every little detail, from URL and overall settings to every section of your profile. Once you have updated your LinkedIn profile, we will look through it again to make sure you did everything correctly and provide further improvement recommendations when needed.
In addition to your CV and LinkedIn notes, you will get a 17-page CV ebook, a 12-page LinkedIn ebook and a guide on how to adapt the CV for each role.

What is a cover letter template and why do I need one?

A Cover letter template is one of our most important deliverables that are essential to your job search and application process. We write a Cover letter template personalised to your positioning and job search strategy. You can then use this template as a starting point and key guide for your multiple job applications.
We make sure you fully understand how to work with your Cover letter template most efficiently when applying for different jobs. That’s why this service includes the following process:

  • We create a personalised template based on your experience and career goals.
  • You pick one live job ad and use our template to create a draft of a tailored cover letter.
  • We study the draft, make amendments if required, providing you with further recommendations (this can take 1-3 drafts).
  • Once we finalise your tailored cover letter for the job you picked, we send it to a native speaker for proofreading.
  • You then receive the proofread tailored cover letter you can use as an example for future applications as well as the template you originally received.

How long will it take to write my CV/cover letter/LinkedIn messages?

It largely depends on your schedule and how fast you reply to our consultant’s questions and return the drafts to us. Here is the usual timeframe:

  1. CV & LinkedIn writing service (CV & LinkedIn profile optimisation) takes 5-7 working days.
  2. Cover Letter writing and editing take 3-4 working days per cover letter.
  3. LinkedIn message tailored templates creation takes 1 working day.

Do you prepare for interview for graduate schemes?

Of course! Our consultants Ksenia Goncharova, Elena Lvova and Andre Atallah have many years of experience preparing for interviews and assessment centres in the UK and Europe. They have already helped hundreds of our clients to secure a job at a large corporation or a graduate scheme.

Brainteasers, competency-based questions, video interviews and company-specific questions are just some of the assessment types they will train you for.

Will I work with only one consultant?

Not always. Even though you will have one lead consultant allocated to you, there may be other consultants involved in the process. For example, your CV could be written by someone else or we might suggest an interview training with a consultant specialised in a certain industry or country.
