Our approach to cover letter and resume writing
The first thing we’ll ask you about is the job you want to apply for. Why? Because every cover letter/resume should be geared to that specific job. We’ll also ask you to tell us about the company and why you want to work for them, because that HAS to come through in the cover letter.
Then, we’ll ask you for your current resume so we can get to know your work history. Don’t worry if you don’t like it right now, because that’s why you’re hiring us. We’ll look it over, ask any questions and then get to work polishing it up and customizing it for the job.
Copyediting and proofreading for names and taglines
If you’ve written your own cover letter and resume, we’ll give it an objective look. We’ll look for typos (which can sink you before you even have a chance to swim), and we’ll also try to truncate where we can — because the shorter and more concise you are, the more likely someone is to read through the whole thing.
But more than anything, we’ll go over your cover letter and resume like a hiring manager would. We’ll point out anything that creates more questions than answers. We’ll recommend format changes if what you have now is difficult to read or follow. And we’ll find clever ways to separate you from the crowd using nothing but professional, persuasive language.
French translation for cover letters and resumes
But the process works the same way as English to French. Our translators capture the essence of what you want to put forward.
