Sharp eye for errors

“I submitted my CV to Cambridge and was impressed by the quality and speed of service. It was returned in just five hours and the editor managed to spot several errors that I certainly would have missed. I intend to send my cover letter in soon. Thanks.”
Jeremy, Manchester, UK

Personable service

“After receiving the proofreader’s edited version of my resume and cover letter, I made some suggested changes based on his/her comments. Afterwards, the proofreader was kind enough to review my changes again which was very helpful and a great confidence boost.”
Michael, Boston, MA

CV proofreading services

“I wanted to get my grammar and punctuation checked on a job application I had drafted. Cambridge Proofreading did a good job of this. I also found them to be much more affordable than other CV editing services that I saw advertised online. I would use this service again.”
Gary, Dublin, Ireland
