Summer Offer – Employability Consultations

Aug 13, 2015

At this time of year we know you might be in need of specialist, qualified help with CVs and applications more than at any other time, so once again we are running a summer offer on our ever-popular Employability Consultation.

This time though, because it is our birthday, we are running this offer for all. This means you are eligible for a £10 saving on one a consultations, making the cost £35 instead of £45.


So what is an Employability Consultation?

During an Employability Consultation we cover everything that you wish to discuss regarding your job applications. You email all your documents to us on the morning of the consultation, and we will review them in detail before we speak to you. We recommend sending us a CV, covering letter and advertisement for a job you didn’t get, and a CV, covering letter and advertisement for a job you’re thinking of applying for – but you can send as many documents as you wish. You phone in at your pre-arranged time, and we’ll cover as much material as we can within the time allowed. The session will last for a minimum of 35 minutes on a BT line or via Skype and usually takes place in the evening, so not to interfere with any work you may be doing.

Why do I need one, and how can it help me?

Very often, when looking for a job, you are far too close to your CV and covering letters to be objective about them and how they’ll be received. You’ve also probably received a lot of conflicting information about what your CV should look like, because there is so much mis-information out there. We work with employers and recruiters, all the time, so we know that a successful application with Publisher A might not necessarily work with Publisher B, C, or D. As we are fully qualified in career guidance, we are also able to help you make those difficult career decisions and ensure that you are pointed in the right direction and applying for the right jobs.

Here are just a few testimonials from clients who have found our consultations useful:
