How it works?

We already helped

  • I asked CV Abroad for help, when I found an open position in a well-known Berlin-based company. I assumed that the competition might be high, so I wanted to increase my chances to get to the interview. I asked them to correct my resume and make a professional cover letter. After the correction my resume looked much more professional with highlighted skills and experience. Moreover, it was done not only for the position but for my area in general. Apart for that, after I talked to Olga, I had a very detailed view of the communication strategy for an interview, which I did't have before. I am very satisfied with my work with CV Abroad. Thank you!

  • Thank you very much for your time, you helped me a lot. My problem was my poor copywriting. I couldn´t clearly communicate who I am professionally. With the Doctoring I was able to see how to improve my resume and make it stand out. The review was very concrete and included typos, a suggestion of a brief summary at the beginning of the CV, an overview of good and bad features of my document. I was able to get rid of unnecessary descriptions, indicate my measurable achievements and got a clue of how to personalize the CV for each job announcement. Thank you again!

  • I would like to share my view of CV Abroad Company. I have already had some experience of writing motivation letters and resumes, anyway I was not really sure I did it correctly. So I decided to ask the company for help, in particular Olga and Elshad. That was a great service with individual approach (which is really difficult to find nowadays). I was glad to cooperate with such experts. If you don’t have any experience in writing motivation letters, or have any doubts about the structure, I recommend you CV Abroad services. I want to thank Olga and Elshad, and wish them growth and moving forward in their business. All the best!

  • My dream employer unexpectedly asked me to send him my resume. I was in a panic, I had not updated it for five years. I was so confused. I decided, that I needed professional help. And oh boy, was I right! I was amazed by the working speed: the next morning my resume was ready. The structure of my resume was changed, faceless position and responsibility descriptions have been adjusted. And just like that, the employer was interested in me. I'm happy for myself and others who decide to profit from this service. It's really worth it!
