Purpose of getting interviews wasn’t achieved
Reviewed on | Senior CV Writing |Verified Purchase

I took senior Cv writing package with cover letter and LinkedIn Profile package for 230 Euros. I was able to bargain 1 extra Cv for that money. My senior Cv write Ms Claire Brenan was absolutely brilliant and my Cv looks very good and organized. However

1. the entire process of getting the Cv is very impersonal and not correct at all. Before buying the package, the call was made my Ms Claire, but after buying the package when I asked her to call me, It came to my knowledge that the calls were chargeable and very expensive. Like they asked me Euro 40-50 for 15 mins call. That is absolutely outrageous and wasn’t told to me about. Thats like mis-selling. The contact with the CV writer is only by dropping messages on there online software, not even direct chat. They will reply once they see the messages.

2. The Cv writers of UK for sure (like 100%) don’t know the Irish Job market and what recruiters and consultants look for, the moment they open the CV. I wouldn’t advise Irish people to get the Cv made from UK people

3. I am still not getting interviews at all and my Cv is being rejected outrightly. I bought this expensive package because my CV was being rejected outrightly by all companies when I have 10 plus years of sales banking and Wealth Management experience, solid academic background and good progression in my career as compared to my friend with no or little experience and they all had jobs. Its not James Inn group or Ms Claire’s fault but there ATS optimization software is surely not a good one.

4. There was quite a delay in my final CVs.

5. All in all, I wouldn’t go again for such services.

Katy- Chief People Officer
Many thanks for your comprehensive feedback, Varun, and I am pleased that you feel the CV looks good. However, I was very sorry to see that, overall, you don’t feel that the purpose was achieved here and would like to respond to your concerns in turn:

1. You mentioned that your senior CV writer, Claire, was absolutely brilliant, but then that the process was impersonal. I understand that this primarily relates to the additional cost for a phone consultation. For clarification, a consultation is not included as standard, but as an optional extra, so there wasn’t any mis-selling here. In fact, we quoted you just €20 for a follow-up call, and had already given you a free second CV as part of the original package.
2. Our writers do indeed have a good understanding of requirements in different markets around the world; in this case, your statement is 100% false as your assigned writer is, in fact, Irish.
3. We do not run our clients’ CVs through an ATS, and haven’t at any time suggested that we do, as there is little purpose to this. Our emphasis is always on keyword optimisation, which Claire outlined to you early on in the process. It is, of course, extremely disappointing that you are being rejected outright and we would be happy to support you further. In fact, I reached out to you on your order page asking for more examples of job roles you are targeting, and any CVs that you have adjusted to meet the requirements for these roles so that we could ensure the keyword optimisation process was being done correctly, but we didn’t hear back from you.
4. I can confirm that your first draft was delivered exactly within the original estimated turnaround times quoted to you at the point of order. Subsequent drafts and responses to feedback were also all provided promptly during UK/IE working hours, so there is no factual evidence of any delays.
5. It is disappointing that you wouldn’t use such services again and I hope we can change your mind - just get in touch directly via your order page where we would be more than happy to pick things up again and support you with your career journey.

High quality service, not worth paying for express service
Reviewed on | Premium CV Writing |Verified Purchase

Rachel provided a high quality service across CV, linked in and covering letter. Her questions in the initial phone call allowed me to get across the key points i wanted to come out in my CV and she provided good advise and feedback. The quality of the written documentation was excellent, showing she's really understood what what we'd discussed. She took on board feedback and we settled on the final CV within a couple of rounds of changes. My only negative feedback would be the timings. I'd agreed the express service within my price and although the initial draft was within the agreed timescale I had to wait for updated versions based on my feedback, the linked in and eventually the covering letter. It took in total 17 days despite generally providing feedback within a few hours to any questions and only having around 2-3 rounds of feedback.

Katy- Chief People Officer
I am so pleased that you are happy with the quality of the service and documents that you received from Claire, and appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. Looking at the order, it seems that the CV was delivered to you nice and promptly and, as we typically work on that first, it was only after a couple of iterations that Claire moved forward with the LinkedIn profile after the weekend. But there was definitely a delay in delivering the cover letter to you, so my apologies for that.

As an international applicant with 15 years of work history, who has newly discovered that global resume format has different qualities, I have searched for resume writing companies and contacted for free resume review (I am grateful to all of them for free review opportunities, in addition the tips they provide). James Innes Group explained me all detailes on the phone (I have already left one review related with this first step) which made me sure that this is the right company to work with. I requested a new resume, cover letter and Linkedin profile.

First I was requested to chose a template and express my needs and based on that one of the resume writers was assigned to me. I'd liek to thank Ozzy, too. I had a chance to review the first draft and make my comments. However the collaboration with Ozzy did not continue due to technical reasons and I was assigned to work with Claire.

Working with Claire was wonderful. We did not waste time on explaining too long what I am looking for in my resume and cover letter. She took the inititative to change the template in accordance with my experience and background, personally approached to my needs and gave me a lot of explanations and information which helped me to navigate (it is very important for me). 2 resume drafts were enough.

The cover letter is very rich and editible. Little more about the cover letter I wrote in my other reviews.

I expected the Linkedin profile instructions to be a couple pages. But it came as a rich document with a lot of necessary information, tips and guidance.

If to summarize alongside with receiving the requested documents, I received the necessary guidance and explanation which helped me to understand why, when, where :) The only uncomfortable side is you need little patience, since communication goes through email registration/passcode system in the portal of the company for transparency purposes and you can't communicate with writers personally and quickly via your own email for faster results. Now I think that it is good, since the writers need time to do their job as it is a creative process.

I greatly reccommend James Innes Group for resume, cover letter and Linkedin profile writing and will cooperate with them in future with great pleasure.

It was a very professional and fascinating experience.

They helped me understand how they bring out the best of a position and making it clear - the designs of the resumes are great - and they would mold together a profile based on your old resume, your reference letters and job postings that you are interested in.

Service was not good
Reviewed on | Senior CV Writing |Verified Purchase

Took long to get allocated a writer. There was no point in answering the questions of what you want, because I don't think anybody read it. First product was a template with zero professional services input on CV 're-write' the second one allocated was much better but the fact that I had to complain to actually get the services I paid for was rather disappointing to me. If you want a new CV template I would recommend, but beyond that I felt there was no real value for money in the offering. But rather they were very focused on selling the next additional thing instead of just providing the service, additional call, additional speed of delivery time. If a CV can not be written without these additional services then maybe don't sell such a bundle.

Katy- Chief People Officer
Thank you for your feedback, Thokozani, and I am sorry that our service didn’t meet your expectations. You mentioned that it took a long time for a writer to get allocated, but your order was actually assigned to a writer, and an initial draft sent to you, exactly within the average 6 days that we quoted to you at the point of order. I understand that you were not happy with the initial drafts, but we stepped in as soon as we became aware, added a completely FREE phone consultation (with no attempt to sell any additional services) and reallocated your order to a brand new PREMIUM writer, whose work you stated that you were happy with before marking it as approved on 9th February. If you feel that there is anything more that we could have possibly done here, please do reach out via your order page to let us know.

I passed up on so many job postings which required a cover letter because I didn't really understand how to put it together and differentiate it from my CV. I have been given a good draft which is adaptable depending on exactly which job I am applying for and having this so well written means I am confidently applying for double the jobs now.

My LinkedIn page was a muddled mess, at best. Again, Claire (who was my senior consultant) managed to make it easy to read, complete, and point out a few errors in the way I was presenting myself to hiring parties.

Really transformative to the CV
Reviewed on | Senior CV/Resume Writing |Verified Purchase

I wasn't really too fussed about having someone work on my CV. I always thought that the information was in the CV I already had and that the hiring party could pull it apart to find the information they were looking for. With the work done on mine I found I got a shorter, simpler, snappier version of the same information which is both more professional looking, and more easy to digest for the hiring parties who are having a quick glance at the CV's to decide which ones to invest more time on. I could not recommend this service higly enough.

Reviewed on | Senior CV Writing |Verified Purchase

I requested a CV to be delivered in a very short space of time, and it was ready even before expected which meant I had heaps of time to look it over and discuss with the writer! I was super impressed with the insightful 'Professional Profile'. Thanks Claire!

For easier writing and faster results
Reviewed on | CV/Resume Review Call |Verified Purchase

I'd made a mess of my career and was about to change it to customer service. The companies I was applying to weren't interested in my CV. After a short consultation, adjustment, and corrections it's not only my CV was selected, but I got the proper understanding of CV writing and a general sense of self-representation. With James Innes Group everybody still looking for a job can make it easier and more professional.

Benefits of choosing the Premium service
Reviewed on | Premium CV Writing |Verified Purchase

Claire was my Premium CV writer and also provided my Cover letter and Linkedin profile update. We had the 30 minute phone discussion which enabled her to immediately understand my expectations for my future career. Her professionalism and experience meant all elements of the Premium package were successfully delivered in the 1st draft. My tired old CV and Cover Letter now have a new vibrancy about them which I would not have believed possible. Thanks again Claire
