Is it Necessary to Meet a CV Writer Face-to-Face?

Over many years, candidates have availed themselves of CV writing services across the UK, whether in Birmingham, London, Manchester, Bristol, Glasgow, Southampton, Newcastle or Leeds, or for that matter any one of our great cities and towns nationwide.

In the past, prior to the advent of online CV writing services, individuals did used to pop in to recruitment agencies to speak with a Recruiter at a desk and often used to be referred to preferential CV writers.

This CV writer would have been within an office and the candidate would meet them to discuss their background and then have their CV written professionally within a set period of time. They would then use this CV and apply for jobs via recruitment agencies or by handing out their CV directly to employers for roles being advertised and also speculatively for them to keep on file.

Then came the advent of CV writers offering services online via the internet. No longer do you need to visit a CV writer at his or her physical location, rather, all communication can be undertaken via e-mail and telephone in the convenience of your own home. Nearly all CV writing companies and independent professional CV writers had moved to providing services digitally by late 2014, with some still offering face-to-face services, but only in locations such as Central London on the whole. Following the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting lockdowns in 2020 and 2021, almost every CV writing service had undertaken a digital transformation, providing their CV writing services online only.

So in answer to the question of whether it is necessary to meet a CV writer physically, we would say no. In this day-in-age of technology, communication via digital means makes it so easy for you to liaise with your writer and discuss all things required and changes can be made very swiftly and e-mailed across to you. To further emphasise the point of a move to digital / online methods, almost all jobs require you to submit your CV online now via portals.

No matter where you are in the country, whether in a small village in Sussex or a major city like Oxford, you do not need your CV writer to be near you, thanks to the wonders of modern technology!
