Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I would like to book an individual consultation, but I am not sure which type of service I should choose. Could you help?
Usually, we advise clients to choose the type of individual consultation based on the experience level and their geographical location. The only exception is IT & Tech specialists who have a separate service page. So if you are:
an experienced professional and you are living in the UK, you should choose Career Development and Change in the UK.
a student or graduate (based anywhere) and you are looking for ways to kick-start your career in Europe, then go ahead with booking Student and Graduate Career Advice.
an experienced professional who is thinking to move to Europe for work (UK, Ireland, Germany or Switzerland) in the next 6-12 months, the right service for you would be Moving to the UK, Ireland, Germany or Switzerland Career Advice.
an experienced professional who is currently based in Russia/CIS and is interested in building an international career in Russia/CIS (working for international companies, using English at work) or thinking to move abroad in the next 2-3 years, you should choose International Career in Russia and CIS.
an IT & tech professional looking to advance your career in Russia/UK/Europe, then you should choose IT & Tech International Career.
If you still need help figuring out which service is the most suitable,

Q: Which sectors do you cover?
We work with Russian speaking professionals across all sectors, including finance, banking, legal, education, journalism, marketing, IT & tech, accounting, sales & business development, property & real estate, administrative, HR & recruitment, translation & interpreting, and others.
Q: Do you conduct career consulting sessions only by Skype? Can I have a face-to-face consultation?
All of our individual career consultations are conducted by Skype. Although it is not possible to have a face-to-face individual consultation, you are welcome to attend one of our offline events!
Q: How fast can I have my first consultation after the payment has been made?
Usually, your consultant will have the availability to conduct a session with you in the next 2-3 days. There are rare occasions when we are extremely busy and all the available slots for the upcoming week are already booked. In this case, the waiting time can be up to 7 days.
Q: What happens if I am late for my session? Can I reschedule the session after booking?
We have the following Cancellation or Postponement Policy: You may cancel or change the time of your scheduled career consulting session up to 24 hours prior to the session’s start time. In the event of you cancelling or postponing the agreed session less than 24 hours before the scheduled time, the session will be cancelled and no refund will be provided to you. In the event of you being late for the session for more than 20 minutes, the session will be cancelled and no refund will be provided to you.
Q: What happens after the individual consultation is over? Do we keep in touch? Can I write to my career consultant if I have any further questions?
We always keep in touch with our clients. We can reassure you that after the consultation you will have a plan with clear steps of what you should do next to achieve your career goals. In addition to that, you will also have either a follow-up Skype call or will be able to ask your consultant any job search-related questions within 2/4/8 weeks of your consultation, depending on the package you have purchased. Please refer to the individual services' page for more details. Should you have any more questions after the above period has passed, it is best to book an additional 30-min consultation.
Q: Will the CV you write be suitable for job applications only in the UK or other countries as well?
The format of our templates reflects the international standards. The CVs we write for our clients get them jobs in Germany, Ireland, Switzerland, Dubai, Russia, Spain, USA, and Asia. Despite the belief that in some countries the CVs must include a photo and date of birth, it is less common nowadays. European and American employers prefer more factual resumes with a focus on the experience and soft skills rather than age or appearance of the candidate.
Q: How long does it take to complete the Profile Optimisation services: CV Clinic, LinkedIn Optimisation, and Cover Letter?
It largely depends on your schedule and how fast you reply to our consultant's questions and return the drafts to us. Usually, this is the timeframe:
CV Clinic service (CV & LinkedIn profile optimisation) takes 3-4 drafts and proofreading or 5-7 days from the date of purchase.
Cover Letter writing and editing takes 3-4 days.
LinkedIn - 2-3 days.
Profile-Pro package takes 1-2 weeks from the date of purchase.
Q: All of your consultants are Russian speakers. How do you make sure that all of the documents in English (CVs, LinkedIn profiles, Cover Letters, etc) are written well?
All of our consultants have been living in the UK for many years. Some of our career coaches have also studied at British universities. Nevertheless, to deliver the best possible service and avoid any mistakes, all of the final drafts are vigorously checked by our native English-speaking proof-readers.
Q: It's a big investment for me. What happens if I do not enjoy the service?
We are happy to report that 99% of our clients are happy with the service we provide, as evidenced by our average rating of 5 stars. Nevertheless, our customer care team is standing by and is committed to resolving any issues that come our way. Just contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any problems.
Q: What if I am not satisfied with my career consulting session?
Once a session is completed, we cannot issue a refund. However, we strongly recommend you express any questions, concerns or comments to your career consultant. In nearly all cases, we will be able to help you find a resolution, as long as you communicate with us.
