Hi Lucy, I just wanted to update you regarding the Business Traineeship I applied for with the cover letter you helped me with! I’ve secured an interview and I’m very happy (and nervous).

It definitely wouldn’t have been possible without your help so thank you so much.

Even if I don’t end up with the position, just knowing that I’m even capable of getting the opportunity has made such a difference to my employment confidence!

Huge thanks,

Hello Lucy,

I was struggling to find a job for a few months. Although my previous work experiences with reputed MNCs were impressive, my CV did not reflect my true merit.

My CV was like pieces of an unsolved jig-saw puzzle.

Lucy, you tuned my CV so well that I got an overwhelming responsean incredible three interview calls within four days of applying with my updated CV. 

I talked with several CV writers before engaging you, and I am so happy with my decision to go with you.

My best wishes and many thanks.
