Yep, it’s 100% free!

BUT… there's always a but :)

Before you turn in your resume, we need to make a deal: I’ll gladly help you out for free, but in return you have to promise me you’ll invest 150% of your effort into preparing the content. Each individual CV will be prepared by hand, nothing is automated, so designing each one requires effort and my main goal is that you are successful. Content of your CV is much, much more important than visual look of it.
 

What doesn't count as "giving 150%":

  1. Preparing your content in an hour (try 1 whole weekend instead)
  2. Having 1 grammar mistake (yep - even one is not acceptable)
  3. Not having your LinkedIn on the “All-star level” (Getting to All-star level)
  4. Having a bad quality or a nonprofessional photo (selfies are a no-no)
  5. Not having at least 1 testimonial

  4. write the CV content in English


Have someone check your grammar

Having grammar mistakes in your CV is simply not acceptable. If you’re not specialized in writing and not a native English speaker, hire an expert or ask a friend who is studying English to go through your content. If you don’t feel like paying up, you can use this nifty tool to correct your basic grammar mistakes - but keep in mind that this will only show you the most critical issues in the text and that it won’t be able to write up good content instead of you.

Double-check your grammar

I can’t stress this enough. Double check your content before submission.
