disappointed
Reviewed on | Early Career CV |Verified Purchase

I am genuinely disappointed in the service. I decided to pay for it thinking i would be able to get a great cv that didn't sound like waffle or your typical clichés. Well that's exactly what I got! I even provided feedback to that effect giving specific examples of what part really didn't sound like me... proven track record in supporting notable customer objectives? That I love market research.... this is clearly a copy and paste job rather than taking the time to get to know the person it is being written about

some of the parts of the cv were even labelled wrong... competencies rather than skills...

in the work section achievements rather than main responsibilities. I am overall really disappointed and ended up re writing it myself! I am clearly a student and paying that amount is a lot of money and really think I have wasted my money and time.

The document which I received from James is fantastic. It mirrors everything which is contained within my CV and is so elegantly written. The format in which it is sent is literally a step-by-step guide on how to make your profile look better with helpful suggestions, but also a copy/paste exercise so you don't even have to think about it.

Reviewed on | Advanced Career CV/Resume |Verified Purchase

I am someone who was always in two minds about using a service like this, because I was one of those people that was too proud to admit that my CV was lacking. If you have any doubts in your mind, please don't! The service is absolutely amazing.

I ordered the Advanced Career CV/Resume on 16th August and received my first draft on 24th August. This was down to me, as I had mentioned that I wanted to apply for a job which closed on 31st August. I am sure that the first draft could have been completed before this date (if you're someone who needs a CV quicker), but I am so happy with what I received. The CV itself is so professionally designed and arranged, with the content so beautifully written (with use of so many important keywords). The covering letter is terse and to-the-point (James provided me with a template for the field/industry that I asked for), and the LinkedIn profile document is an extremely helpful step-by-step guide mirroring all of the content in the former documents.

Throughout the entire process, I had Maria and James in contact with me. Any questions that I had (although few) were answered promptly, and they knew exactly what they needed to ask in order to make the CV exactly how I wanted it. The documents that I have received have genuinely exceeded my expectations, so thank you again!

Peter- Chief Executive Officer
Hi Egle! We have a wide array of template options that have all been developed in-house over the years to maximize ATS parsability. One of them allows selection of a custom cover image and might afford for more of a personalized aesthetic.

That being said may of our more creative clients opt to take the text we have written and apply it to a template they create for themselves using InDesign or similar. We can also provide this service as an addon upon request if you would prefer a more bespoke and creative look/feel.

I am very sorry that you felt like a number - that is not our intention at all. We aim for deep and personalised interaction with every single client we work with across a series of drafts until you feel satisfied with the work that was done. The more you open up to us with your feedback and information about your goals and things you feel passionately about in your career the easier it is for us to capture your voice.

Please do stay in touch and let us know how you get on with your new CV - we're eager to hear how applications go for you and are here to provide support and further assistance any time you might need it!

James Innes Group - your best friend in social networks jungle :-P
Reviewed on | Professional LinkedIn Profile |Verified Purchase

The most honest, reasoned, and friendly advice you will get from them that you would not be able to get even from your friend, on your social networks, and your LinkedIn page.

You receive a detailed analysis of all the sections, with their recommended version of the content of each section.

Also, their recommendations on what is missing and what would be useful in your profile (sometimes we forget about some features the LinkedIn has, and they will remind you of that).

In addition, they will give you an advice how to be active on LinkedIn to get the most of it.

It is an essential professional networking platform, and many employers look at your profile before the employment, even if the employment itself has not come through LinkedIn. So, it is important to get it right.

Thank you!

Prosperity and Success to You!

They have edited my Cover letter highlighting my achievements and capitalizing on my experience; deeply insightful work made by the James Innes Group.

What amazed me was their understanding of my goals and best areas where those can be achieved.

Depending on what you want, you can ask them to write a Cover letter tailored to a particular employer, or a general Cover letter that shows your best talents, strengths, and achievements.

James Innes Group is a group of professionals who will make your goals achievable!

Reviewed on | Senior CV/Resume Writing |Verified Purchase

I am absolutely amazed at the results of the work that has been done by James Innes Group!

Their ability to grasp the idea of what was my particular role in each job, and describe it in the best fitting, best-suitable words is beyond commendation.

It feels like they have known me for ages, while all they got from me is my draft CV, Cover letter and a couple of links.

Work with James Innes Group is easy and very rewarding: you just drop them your Resume, and they come back to you with the best version of You that you have always known exists. And here it is, manifested on paper!

They don’t make up things, everything is based on your actual experience. But after their work it just looks right - the way you would want it to look if you possessed all the skills and knowledge as they do in finding the right words and style to get your message about yourself across.

Thank you, James Innes Group!

Prosperity and Success to You!

Katy- Chief People Officer
I can see that the initial cover letter was produced as a general one, because you mentioned several different roles that you might be interested in. However, once you clarified that you wanted the letter to have a specific direction, this is what was done. We asked for more information from you, and even gave you a call to discuss this, after which you sent in some sample job ads to facilitate this process. After the next drafts were sent to you, we received feedback that "Everything is perfect" and that you had just some very minor amendments. These were actioned, and you personally hit the Approve Order button on 29th September, which suggests everything met with your approval. Do please let us know via the order if you would like us to action any further changes - we are more than happy to help.

The CV writer was out of words and he did copy paste my uploaded resume which on the first place was uploaded to be as a guide and not to be used as it is.

Katy- Chief People Officer
There was some initial confusion regarding your CV whereby, after the first draft was prepared, you actually asked James to ignore the source document that you uploaded because the description of your current job role that it contained did not accurately reflect what you did in that position. We asked you for additional information that would enable us to better understand your role, but unfortunately this was not forthcoming. It was at this point that I gave you a call directly to clarify the information we needed, which resulted in you sending across some job roles that were really helpful. After the next drafts were sent to you, we received feedback that "Everything is perfect" and that you had just some very minor amendments.

We would have loved to help you with the creation of your LinkedIn account, Nasser, especially if it would have rounded off the service provided very nicely. Unfortunately, we have to abide by strict data regulations, and indeed LinkedIn policy, which prevent us from accessing password-protected content. Here's a link that explains LinkedIn's policy on this: https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/4270/changing-account-information-on-behalf-of-someone-else?lang=en
Also, clause 8.2.1 of the User Agreement underlines this further still:
