Individual CV Review and CV Clinics

Individual CV Review (for Professional Opportunities)

 N.B. During peak periods, please be advised that significant delays in sending CV feedback may occur.

Ce que nous offrons:

Des commentaires détaillés sur la version finale de votre CV pour vous aider à vous présenter à un employeur avec un maximum de clarté et d’impact. Vous devez soumettre une seule version (français ou anglais.)

Les commentaires sont fournis par courriel, en mode « commentaires » sur une version Word de votre CV. Vous êtes libre de commenter vous-même la version soumise, pour nous aider à bien comprendre vos choix et vos interrogations.

*New Option: If you would prefer, you may opt to make an appointment with the Career Development Officer for an in-person review. Note that weekly spaces are limited for this service. 

What we don't offer :

  • La traduction et la révision linguistique.
  • La révision de brouillons. Before submitting a CV, make sure it follows the guidelines of the Career Development Guide or CV Mini Guide, or you will be asked to comply and resubmit it later, resulting in delays.
  • La révision de CVs en dehors du processus de recherche d’emploi (échanges, concours, gouvernance étudiante, cours crédités, etc.)
  • La révision « rush ». Veuillez soumettre votre CV aussi à l’avance que possible.
  • Multiple reviews and re-reviews (though, if you have a precise question or two about a new document or integrated changes, you are welcome to touch base)

Comment procéder :

Email your CV in Word format (so we can use "track changes" to make comments) and make sure to follow these three instructions, depending on your situation.

  1. In-person or electronic review (specify which you would prefer)

    If you wish to book an in-person review, cdo [dot] law [at] mcgill [dot] ca (e-mail the CDO) specifying three (3) time-frames within CDO opening hours that you would be available during the week following your request. Specify if you are looking for a General Review or Upcoming Application Review (points 2 and 3 below). If you wish to book an electronic review, proceed directly to points 2 and 3 below.  
  2.  Général review (« I want to be prepared just in case an interesting job comes up! »)

Le courriel par lequel vous transmettez votre CV pour une révision générale doit comporter le titre "General review - no deadline".

       3.   Upcoming application (« I already polished my CV just for this, help me make it even better!»)

    If you need your CV reviewed for an upcoming application, as opposed to a general review, make sure to:

    • include the application deadline in the subject line;
    • include proof of deadline: name of organization and link to the online job offer, or myFuture reference number.


    CV Clinics (for Organized Recruitment)

    The CDO offers a number of CV Clinics throughout the year, timed to coincide with the various recruitment processes.

    Virtual or In-person CV Clinics are offered for the US OCIs, Vancouver, Calgary, and Toronto OCIs, and the Montreal Articling Recruitment processes. 

    Registration is mandatory on myFuture. Students are typically made aware of these events through the relevant distribution lists (See Organized recruitment).
