Best CV companies in South Africa

It is January and most of us will be looking for new jobs to grow our careers and also to raise our earning potential to fit the new plans we have made for ourselves. The job-seeking journey begins with a CV, the more professional your CV is the more chances you have of booking interviews, the more interviews you book the greater your chances of landing a lucrative job offer.

Most people have no idea how to properly structure their CV, a lot has changed and the standards have risen significantly so the good old DIY CV no longer gets the job done as there are various considerations we might miss when drafting our own CVs, so if you are not in the HR/Recruitment space you may not know what makes an employer select certain CVs and trash the rest. This is the reason most job seekers now enlist the help of professional CV writers.

We have looked at a couple of CV writing companies and have realised there are so many chancers online also it is so hard to know which company to use and who will actually deliver the service you paid for. We have reviewed these companies and looked at things like company legitimacy, how long have they been around, services offered, price, and if they gave real customer reviews. Listed below are our findings with links to their websites so you can go check them out yourself.

While some people find it easy to identify their skills and present themselves exceptionally well on paper, the vast majority of us find it difficult to tell the best version of our ‘story’. An ordinary CV writer simply reconstructs a template with pre-set headings, utilizing clichéd expressions, set phrases, and well-known constructions to describe abilities and work path. In contrast, at Visualize Resourcing, our Executive CV Writers understand that each individual is different, and every industry/position is, too.
