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 PDF document and have it randomly assigned to a volunteer ACCP member reviewer, who will provide comments and/or edits. Participants will receive an e-mail containing feedback from a reviewer within 14 business days.

In response to feedback from past users of the CV Review Service, ACCP has made two important changes. First, the CV Review Service will now be open year round so that you can upload your CV for review anytime you choose. Second, you can now receive input on your CV from a second reviewer. This option will automatically show up for you when you sign into your ACCP account after receiving feedback from your initial reviewer.

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