There is a lot of buzz these days about professional support for Resume and CV writing services. In today’s day and age, one has to use their resumes as an advertisement targeted towards their prospective employers. When I first came across the concept of resume writing, I wondered, what can be so difficult in drafting my work experience that one needs to hire a professional? This led me into researching and understanding, how and why this has become so important today.
Now, when it came down to understanding the need, I had to speak to people from both sides of the coin. Hiring Managers and Applicants; across various seniority levels. Most of them had different views on what they might be looking for from a professional Resume Writer or Consultant. Most of them had common requirements that revolved around the CV being ATS friendly, short and crisp that captured their experience, well drafted content that highlighted their seniority and most importantly appealing on immediate view.
When I spoke to leaders in the hiring chair, the most important element for them seemed to be facts and reality. Most top corporations and MNC’s use an Application Tracking System, commonly known as ATS. They feel, while it has made their lives easy in many ways, it has also become a source to reject qualified applicants, just because, they did not sport the much-needed industry related terminologies. Speaking to applicants, gave me the insight that many did not really understand what these terminologies were, irrespective of the cadre that they were at.
There are many players in the market today, who offer resume writing services. Many offer placements along with this. Now, I am not here to suggest whom to approach to draft your resume. However, my research into this, led to spotting 5 different brands with high credibility from the Indian market, catering to CV writing services.

1CV Designer — www.cvdesigner.in

This firm is headquartered in Chennai, with virtual offices pan India, helping applicants globally. Here is a quick insight into why they reign as market leaders. CV Designer steps forward as a premium service provider in the field as highly qualified resume consultants. They pride in stating, they are not just another resume writing company and have complete understanding of region-specific demands and seniority-based writing support. This brand mostly caters to leaders who fall under the Mid to C suite cadre. Clients who approach this CV Designer stretch across multiple walks of life. As much as they have Corporate Leaders approaching them, they also have Business Owners and women who are re-starting their careers. As premium service provides, who aptly suggest what is needed for the client and what will work in their favor, post a careful analysis of the client’s candidacy even before they place an order. They help their clients stand out from the rest in the market, through real time conversations with skilled certified resume writers.
Taking a consultative approach towards drafting content, they believe in holding a dialogue with their clients rather than just skimming through existing CVs. They do not flinch to have pre-sale discussions and consultations. Their only motive is it ensure, the client who approaches them, is provided what is needed and will work to the client’s advantage. The entire team is in-house and they do not work with freelancers. Here is a quick brief into their process and teams involved in the entire process.

Step 1: Discussion Panel — Teams Involved: Certified Resume Writers. (It is worth to know, that this brand puts their writers through a vigorous training session, before they are allowed to handle their clients accounts. They render a thorough consultative approach to their clients, by gathering all the needed details and understanding the client’s requirement / expectation before suggesting to them what works and what does not. They later send out a detailed MoM to capture what was discussed and what may be needed from the client in addition to what has been provided already. Content plays a very critical role for this group and their immediate priority is to get the content right and they do not think twice to edit and iterate the content multiple times. They do not close any project unless the client says they are happy with the services.

Step 2: Drafting and Quality Check — Teams Involved: Content Head and Quality Assurance Managers. They run a complete analysis on the content drafted, overall health of the content and data points put together and later administering the needed corrections that may be needed to further refine the raw draft.

Step 3: Step 3: Client Feedback and Approval — Teams Involved: Writers and Operations Manager. They schedule a call to discuss the edits that and the client’s feedback, post which the draft is re-edited, truncated if needed and resent for the client’s approval.

Step 4: Content Approval and Design Discussion — Teams Involved: Operations Manager and Design Team Lead. After the client has provided his or her consent on the content developed on their behalf, the file is moved to the designers for a discussion to understand how the client wants to visualize their profiles. Aesthetics are given equal importance by this firm, as they believe immediate reaction to a well formatted document always has a positive impact.

Step 5: Design finalization, Feedback and Project Closure — Teams Involved: Operations Manager. The team reaches out to understand if the client is genuinely happy with the process and if they need any further assistance. With the client’s approval, they close the project and beyond that, they leave a one-year support line open.

As for their approach to writing content, they also begin with a call, where the writer is involved and makes a careful note of the requirements.

While exclusive designs are not supported here, you can express your desire to have a different color tone it. I must add here, their pre made design elements are pretty neat.
