CV Preparation Tips

On Demand CV Review Service

A well written Curriculum Vitae (CV) creates a positive image to future selection committees or employers, and distinguishes you from the rest of the crowd. As questions arise in preparing your CV, and once finished, wouldn’t it be helpful to have a seasoned professional review it?

ACCP student and postgraduate trainee members may submit their curriculum vitae online as a Microsoft Word document and have it randomly assigned to a volunteer ACCP member reviewer. The ACCP reviewer will provide his/her comments and/or edits using the track changes feature in Microsoft Word. Participants will receive an e-mail containing feedback from a reviewer within 14 business days. Please check the web site for updated information regarding the online service.

Please review the examples below which further illustrate the features of our online curriculum vitae review program:
