Frequently Asked Questions

Q:
Will the CV you write for me be tested on an ATS?
A:

South African recruiters may use applicant tracking systems, but it would not be necessary to run your CV through one—each one is configured in a particular way, meaning your CV would not necessarily be more visible to the recruiter of your choice. Instead, we optimise your CV in accordance with the specific keywords and phrases most recently used by the company you’re interested in. For more information on how we approach this, see our ATS factsheet: https://jig.is/ats-info

Q:
Will my CV writer have experience or be specialized in my field?
A:

Our CV writers have extensive experience in working with clients from all sorts of backgrounds and industries which they use to tailor to your specific needs to create a professional, polished CV that will appeal to South African employers. Using our breadth of knowledge from over 20 years of experience, we will work with you and your expertise in your field to optimise your CV to reach its highest potential and impress the recruiters from the employer you choose.

Q:
Are CV writing services worth it?
A:

South African recruiters are used to seeing lots of CVs per day. Your best chance of getting their attention is by working with a CV writer to distil your experience, skills and achievements to best showcase what you have to offer. Much like most people would not cut their own hair, it is worth giving the raw material to a professional CV writer to refine it for you and get it into the best shape possible. You might overlook mundane day-to-day aspects of your work that a CV writer will identify as being advantages which could elevate your CV even further than you expected.

Q:
How much does it cost to have a CV written?
A:

South African clients can choose between our four CV writing services whose costs range from R800 to R3300, based on your years of experience and your industry, as well as four corresponding packages which include cover letters and LinkedIn profiles, costing between R1700 and R3700.

We also offer a premium service, starting at R5000, which is ideal for high-level candidates. With this service, you can work directly with best-selling author James Innes’ hand-picked team of writers (and a call with James himself as an optional addon).

Chat Directly With Your CV Writer

When you order from us you will gain access to our portal complete with chat and document management. Through there you will have a constant link to your dedicated CV writer as well as easy access to your new CV.

Most other CV writing services run everything over cumbersome, old-fashioned email or insecure, outdated WordPress plugins leading to limited interactivity and data security/privacy issues.


Unlimited Revisions

Our process is extremely collaborative. Your CV writer will work with you across multiple feedback cycles. You'll be in discussion with them throughout as they home in on your most glowing achievements in line with your goals.

Once you are satisfied you can approve your order. We will only ever close your order before that if you go inactive for a full two weeks.


Flexible Design Of Your CV Template

We have a team dedicated to keeping our library of templates optimized and contemporary. Over the years this has included introducing a wide range of design options and colour palettes.

Our templates are developed for cross-platform compatibility whether it be an ATS or a human recruiter doing the reading. Our experts take care of all the details so that you don't need to, including: both editable & presentational file formats, adequate print margins, cross-platform fonts / iconography, acceptable file size and enhanced typography / readability.


ATS Optimization and Keyword Analysis

Recruiters use applicant tracking systems to read your CV into a candidate database that can then be searched with various terms.

It is impossible to ensure that your CV will perform equally well in all scenarios given the wide range of ATS packages and how differently they can all be configured.

That being said we do apply best practice by ensuring that we leverage targeted keywords per job title and even for a particular job post.


Honest Turnaround Times (Recalculated Daily)

We are the first and only CV writing service to calculate real, live average turnaround times based on our current workload.

The last thing we want is for you to miss a job application deadline because we hard-coded turnaround times on our website to ensure you buy from us.

This will help you decide whether you need to purchase an express delivery option at checkout to make sure your CV is ready for that job application deadline.


Express Delivery Available At Checkout

If you need to meet an urgent job application deadline we can have a first revision of your CV ready for you within 6 hours.

We offer 6, 12, 24, 48 and 72 hour options that guarantee delivery of the first revision of your new CV so you can plan ahead.

You will be able to browse through all of these options and their pricing at checkout.


Support Team Ready To Help At Any Time

Not only do you gain the expertise of your dedicated CV writer by ordering from us but also that of our entire team.

The team communicates daily, bouncing ideas off of each other from a particular CV they are working on and generally sharing best practice.

Our support team are always ready and willing to step in to help you get the most out of your CV writing service.


100% Satisfaction Guaranteed

We operate a 100% satisfaction guarantee, no questions asked.

As long as you do not go inactive for two full weeks, we will continue to work with you until you have a new CV that you can be proud to use.
