Why choosing the cheapest CV writer may not be a good idea

Updated: Jul 12, 2023

Are you considering immigrating so you can secure a better future for your family?

If so, you’ve probably considered updating your CV – until you find out how much it’s going to cost to have an expert writer do it for you… But wait, other people out there are offering the same service for half the price, so surely it won’t make much difference who you use, right? The cheapest CV writer could cost you jobs!

Immigration is expensive, so you feel quite justified in shopping around for the cheapest price.

However, once you’ve got your newly formatted CV back, and sent it to prospective employers, you might be wondering why you still aren’t being hired. Especially when everyone else seems to be getting jobs ‘so easily’.

Upon closer inspection though, you see a few red, blue, or green lines dotted throughout your CV – indicating spelling, grammar, and formatting errors.

Or worse still, you receive feedback from (previously) prospective employers informing you that this crucial document has been poorly formatted.

The cheapest CV writer could end up costing you a future.

Some so-called CV writers out there have been known to just copy and paste your existing CV from one document to another, or use free templates that ‘they found on the internet’, and charge a fat fortune. Unfortunately, these templates are free for a reason – they don’t provide the CV format that prospective Australian and New Zealand-based employers require.

The old saying, ‘The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of a low price‘, certainly applies when it comes to revamping your CV. Your CV holds the key to your future, so it’s essential that it be compiled properly before you even think of sending it out to apply for jobs. Don’t make the mistake of trying to get this task done as cheaply as possible.
