DON’T PANIC, JUST REACH OUT — EVEN AT 2am
A CV-writing service is running a 24-hour online helpline to support graduates having a late-night panic about their job applications.
Purple CV started the 24 hour CV advice web chat service in response to demand from young jobseekers, who often turn their attention to job hunting in the small hours. The firm’s founder Andrew Arkley told Graduate Fog:
“We’ve noticed a trend for young jobseekers in particular wanting out-of-hours assistance with their CV.
“Sometimes that’s because they already have a job so they’ve been at work all day. In other cases it’s because they’ve been procrastinating, or because they can’t sleep because they’re worried about their future.”
The most common queries come from graduates who feel they don’t have any experience, or who have experience in a different field from the one they want to get into (for example, they want to be a lawyer, but have only ever worked in Primark or Pizza Hut).
Graduates with CV gaps from long periods of unemployment also have questions about how this can be hidden from prospective employers.
Happily, Andrew says Purple CV has never had a customer they couldn’t help. “Writing a CV isn’t always easy but whatever the problem we can always find a way around it,” he says. Their prices start at £25 (or £22.50 with the special Graduate Fog discount – see below).
Purple CV won’t start work on a graduate’s CV in the middle of the night (get a grip, people!) but they will explain exactly what services will be right for you, and assure you they can help. Work will start on your CV the very next morning, and the first draft will be with you in under 48 hours.
Graduate Fog thinks Purple CV are definitely on to something — it’s clear they understand the graduate mindset well. Like them, Graduate Fog has also noticed higher-than-expected activity on this website late at night. Job hunting can be a lonely business, and moments of crisis can strike at any time. So it’s nice to know there is always someone out there who can help, even at 2am!

Purple CV has been personally recommended to us by the graduate recruitment agency we partner with on the Graduate Fog Job Board. Cary Curtis, founder of Give A Grad A Go, says:
“We were really impressed with the standard of the CVs and covering letters that Purple CV produced. They were definitely good enough to go straight to one of the employers we work with, without any further changes.
“The market is flooded with CV providers who use one-size-fits all templates, so it’s great to find one that offers a top quality, affordable service that is genuinely bespoke. Purple CV’s quick turnaround and offer of free revisions for 12 months are a real bonus too.”
