Getting rejected is demoralising, and you start to doubt your own creative abilities.
Clearly Creative CVs gives Freelancers looking for work proven techniques to communicate their skills and experience clearly so they win more work.
Ivan was struggling to find work
He kept sending his CV out, but his mobile wasn't ringing with offers.
Then he discovered the Clearly Creative CV Course.
“I have implemented the suggestions you made. Things have been going well. I’ve had the chance to film in China, Sri Lanka and for ITN on multiple occasions since I updated everything 🙂"
Ivan, Camera Person

Frequently Asked Questions about the Course
1. Can these Clearly Creative CVs really help me grow my career?
The simple answer is yes. I can’t promise you’re going to get a call from Netflix the day after completing the course, but the practical advice and mindset changes you’ll learn will get your CV a higher response rate that help you get closer to your career goals every day.
2. Is this the best course for me?
There are lots of courses out there helping freelancers. Clearly Creative CVs is geared to freelancers win work more effectively from new employers. We have testimonials from Editors, Make Up Artists, Producers, Animators, Camera Crew… all of whom have won more work thanks to my course. They’ve scored the content 4.7/5 stars.
3. Do I need to take the offer NOW?
Yes, you need to act now. That might not be buying my courses. But you need to make a change today. If you don't know what to change about your CV, then this is the course for you. The price of my courses will be going up as I add more content. So getting in now will lock you in to the content at the best value.
4. What if it doesn’t work for me?
Of course you’ve got doubts, maybe thinking, “Well, the course has work for everyone else but I don’t think it will work on me.” One make up artist thought just that. “I bought your book and I admit it sat on my bookshelf as I thought it might not be right for me. And when I did start reading it I slowly cringed into the sofa whilst pressing delete a lot on my CV. It’s still a work in progress but it has helped.” There will be sections that will resonate with you more than others, but you will find the majority of it relevant to you.
5. Will there be good after-sales service?
If you’ve got any questions about the course you’re welcome to contact me directly, but I recommend putting them on our LinkedIn group, where the community of freelancers can answer your questions.
