We all know a compelling CV is a vital job-searching tool, but I don't provide a CV-writing service – and never will. Read on to find out why

A great CV is make or break when you’re looking for a job. So it’s a problem when writing it seems like a mountain to climb. You might be tempted to reach out to a CV service or career coach who will write one for you.
There are many people out there who will do that for you and do a great job. But I’m not one of them.
It’s not because I don’t care about your CV. I do. I want you to have the best possible chance of getting a job you will love, that will fulfil you, that pays well. And that’s why I won’t write it for you.
To get that job you really, really want, the one you know is perfect for you, but secretly fear is out of your reach, you’ll need to become confident and bold. That means understanding who you really are. What you have to give to the world. That you are enough.
There are many people out there who will do that for you and do a great job. But I’m not one of them
You won’t find this out if you take the easy path.
Self-discovery takes time. It takes courage. It takes investment. That’s why I won’t write your CV for you. I can’t encourage you to take that shortcut.
I want to help you take a more challenging, but ultimately, much more rewarding journey. To a place where you are confident and bold. Where you know what you want and how to get it.
And when you’re there, I’ll be right there with you, giving encouragement and support while you write your CV. And I’ll be cheering from the sidelines when you send it out into the world, fuelled with ambition for what you will achieve.
That person won’t need anyone to speak for them. That person knows how to speak for themselves. So no, I won’t write your CV for you.
