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 ou CL 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.

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)
