                            • 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!
