Frequently Asked Questions
Building your new Curriculum Vitae requires effective information gathering and collaboration for an end-product that feels genuine and authentic. The client intake process helps to gather information on important variables like your desired job title. The intake process consists of an introductory questionnaire and a telephone call.
After completion of the intake process, your first drafts are prepared and uploaded into the client portal within 5 business days. You may request 30 days of draft revisions to ensure full satisfaction. Final documents are prepared in both MS Word and PDF along with additional information and resources to make the most of your new CV.
We pledge to deliver on the following timelines:
- First drafts delivered in 5 business days (after completion of intake process)
- All draft revisions delivered in 3 business days (per each round)
In general, the CV-writing process typically lasts from 10 to 30 business days (start to finish). This timeline takes into consideration completion of the introductory questionnaire, telephone intake call, first draft development, draft revisions (up to 30 days), and preparation of final proofed copies.
If you purchase LinkedIn Optimization, it begins upon completion of the CV Writing process. This is comprised of two parts: (1) developing the content for your LinkedIn profile (2) performing the actual live profile updates.
Developing the content for your LinkedIn profile means preparing custom descriptions for each component of your LinkedIn profile including the introductory summary, work history, projects, education, certifications, organizations, and much more.
Similar to the CV Writing process, unlimited revisions allow for refinements and improvements to the proposed content before it goes live on your LinkedIn profile. The end-result is a LinkedIn profile that is on-par and working in compliment to your new CV. For more information, please see the LinkedIn FAQs on this page.
Yes, an in-depth phone consultation with Doug Levin is a standard part of the intake process. This discreet and confidential phone call is beneficial to the Resume Writing process for familiarizing with your background and fleshing out your objectives (occupation, industry, and seniority level).
Upon first draft delivery, document revisions are typically handled through written correspondence, although phone calls are happily arranged upon request.
Unlimited Revisions allow for edits, revisions, and questions for a period of 30-days after receiving your first drafts.
We do our very best to develop flawless documents on the first try! Your input is helpful in building documents that are properly aligned with your goals. Constructive feedback and helpful comments and questions are welcomed and encouraged.
