Careers and Job Search Coaching
Imagine knowing exactly where you want to go in life. Imagine knowing exactly how to get there. That’s what our coaching service is all about. Our experienced team of Graduate Career Coaches have helped thousands of graduates discover their ideal job and land a job they love.
I need my CV or application form quickly. Is this possible?
Yes. We understand that the nature of the job market means that you may not see an opportunity until close to deadline. We have recently started to offer a 24 turnaround service, although this isn’t guaranteed in busier periods. If you need help fast, please contact us and we can discuss availability. Please note, there will be a surcharge of £20 for this service.
Why should I pay a professional to write my CV? I could write one myself.
You probably can write one yourself. And it will probably be Ok. But Ok isn’t going to land you the job you want in a highly competitive job market. A professional CV Writer can write tight, targeted copy and present it in a way that will make your CV really stand out. Our CV Consultants have helped thousands of people land great jobs by writing top quality CVs, cover letters, personal statements. We’ve seen the difference a well-crafted, easy to read, strategically written CV can make – it’s the difference between getting the job you want and missing out.
It’s our goal to make sure you aren’t the one that loses out. We want you to email us weeks down the line to say “I got the job, thank you!” (we have lots of great testimonials like this, which you can read here).
One of the things we love about Graduate Goals is hearing our client’s stories and working out how to best present them. Because in essence, that’s what a CV is- a story (nerd fact ‘Curriculum Vitae’ means ‘story of life’) about your work, skills, education, training and achievements, all condensed into just a couple of sides of A4.
A skilled CV Writer does more than just write words. They listen, they ask questions and they research. When you choose to work with us, we will start by understanding your story and your goals before working out how to present them to a recruiter with maximum impact.
How much does a new CV cost?
We believe in offering a clear and transparent pricing structure – with no hidden extras. So a brand new, professionally written CV from qualified Career Coaches costs a flat fee of £60.
Other CV sites charge anywhere from £40-200 so this puts us towards the lower end. We’re not the cheapest because we believe that in order to write a great CV, we have to get to know you and your job goals first. This means our CV writers will spend time understanding what your skills and achievements are, undertake extensive industry research where necessary, and translate this into a personalised, highly targeted CV or application.
That said, we try and keep our prices low to make them affordable. £60 may seem like a lot of money until you realise that your degree has likely cost you at least £27,000 in tuition fees alone.
The plain truth is that it doesn’t matter how qualified you are as a candidate, how well you have done in your degree, or how many great experiences you have under your belt. If you aren’t presenting them in the right way, they will count for nothing.
Those few extra pounds spent on a CV can make all the difference in how recruiters view your degree.
If you think having a CV professionally written is unaffordable, ask yourself this; If a professional CV will land you the job you want, with a better salary, greater job satisfaction, and enhanced career prospects what price do you put on that?
How does the CV writing process work?
When you place an order with us, we will match you to a Consultant who has experience in your industry. Your Consultant will contact you within 24 hours to introduce themselves and discuss your requirements. We will then send you an initial questionnaire to find out more about your skills, experience and education. Throughout the writing process, your Consultant may be in touch by phone or email to check further information and details.
After four working days, you will receive a draft of your new CV to approve or amend. You can request unlimited revisions until you are totally happy with the end result.
Can you help with application forms? Will you write the application for me?
With more and more companies shortlisting via application forms, we have extensive experience in this area. We offer a detailed guidance and checking service for applications, giving you confidence that your application will stand out for the right reasons. We will edit, proofread and assess your application against the employers’ criteria, and advise you on how and where you can improve it. We are unable to write applications from scratch, as most questions demand a level of story and detail which can only come directly from you.
Do you provide help for students as well as graduates?
Absolutely. Gaining good quality work experience during your studies can be key to your graduate job prospects. In fact, some internships receive more applications than graduate jobs. We have plenty of experience helping students through internship processes, as well as writing CVs for general job and work experience applications.
I graduated a few years ago. Can you still help me?
Our expertise is the graduate job market and some jobs do place restrictions (usually 5 years) on how recently you must have graduated. However, our CV writers have experience working with all groups of clients, from long-term unemployed to senior executive level. Depending on how far advanced you are in your career, it may be necessary to charge more to write your CV if you have an extensive work history. Please contact us for a bespoke quote.
Do you guarantee results?
Nothing in the job market is ever guaranteed, but we guarantee to present your CV and applications in the best way possible. Our clients have gone on to secure internships and graduate jobs with a huge range of companies including PwC, Microsoft, the Civil Service, Teach First and Rolls-Royce. We also guarantee that we will continue to work with you until you’re 100% happy with the result – no questions asked.
What can I say? The CV Carrie worked on for me just made my day. I particularly liked the way Carrie reigned me in – hearing me out patiently, then really focusing on tailoring my CV for my audience (the UK market and HR industry), whilst bringing out softer aspects about myself that I wasn’t able to communicate clearly on paper prior to this.
Fantastic work, I was truly impressed with the quality of the work. I have never had to do my own CV but it was tailored to a specific job perfectly.
Carrie was brilliant doing her job. She was really useful and gave me plenty of advice. I highly recommend her.
I’m really impressed with the level of service. Graduate Goals has done a great job bringing my CV up to the industry standard, all in just a few of days. Great communication! I’d recommend them to anyone who is looking for a professional and quick service!
Excellent communication, fast and efficient service, top quality CV. I would highly recommend.
Having come from another country, I required assistance with my CV as my understanding of UK requirements and the conventions that recruiters are looking for was very limited. I was pleased with the CV and cover letter that I received and would recommend without hesitation. Thank you!
Extremely happy with the level of service provided, really easy to communicate, very friendly and understood exactly what I need.
I am a mature student based in Continental Europe and was particularly interested to have my CV reviewed and worked on by UK CV specialist. Carrie completely identified with my rather technical career history and researched very well into it. I recommend to really work with Carrie and brain storm her questions for best feedback. Happy customer. Many thanks.
The CV was taken on knowing it was a lot of work. I have had good communication all the way through the process and the work is 100% amazing. I would recommend this service to anyone that needs this doing. I would do again and I will be passing on to my friends and family as well due to the excellent service.
Excellent service. A very fast response that was thoughtful and personal to my experience and job aspirations. Some very simple and easy to implement tips, but also more in-depth ones. Clearly highly knowledgable in CV writing. Would highly recommend! Thank you.
Great communication and fast delivery, the order was delivered exactly as required and job was done 100% well. I’m very happy with the service and will definitely be using again.
Very professional. Carrie knows her stuff and clearly justifies every change that she made with my CV. Thanks a lot and I hope to land a job soon with my new CV.
Graduate Goals carried out their work exceptionally well and in good time. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for another pair of eyes to check their CV.
I have just had an offer from my first choice Law firm! Thank you so much for all of your advice and support. It’s made such a difference!
Excellent from start to finish. Cannot imagine anyone better! 10 out of 10
