    "Highly Recommended – Great Results. I would highly recommend Lena from My CV Consultant for your next CV and cover letter. Lena spent several hours on the phone discussing my background, experience and achievements. She is very good at drawing out your achievements and presenting it within the CV, a key aspect to highlight to potential employers. The final presentation of the CV and cover letter is very professional and eye catching. Lena is very easy to deal with and knowledgeable."
