Time to get yourself noticed

Graduate recruiters receive hundreds of applications each day. Research shows that shortlisting decisions are made in just 30 seconds of reading a CV. That means your profile needs to be pitch perfect, your skills and achievements need to dance off the page, and your format needs to be high impact. Anyone can write a Graduate CV, but only a professional can write a Graduate CV which gets great results.

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.


HR, India

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.


IT Graduate, Newcastle

Carrie was brilliant doing her job. She was really useful and gave me plenty of advice. I highly recommend her.


Health and Social Care, Cambridge

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.


Sociology Graduate, Norwich

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!


LLB, London

Extremely happy with the level of service provided, really easy to communicate, very friendly and understood exactly what I need.


Media student, Manchester

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.


Catering Graduate, Germany

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.


Music Technology Graduate, Cardiff

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.


Politics student, Bristol

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.


Marketing MSc, Nottingham

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.


Business student, London

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!


LLM, Liverpool
