I am really happy I got to know David through another person in the recruitment field. David is a very skilled professional within CV writing and his advices were very specific and tailored for my case.
He also scanned my CV and cover letter, together with the job ad I wanted to apply for, by using a keyword scanning software that most of the big companies’ recruiters use. The results from this scan gave me an idea of which keywords I should incorporate on my documents in order to increase my matching rate.
