We are revolutionizing the job market: READ MORE: Business Awards 2020 (mea-markets.com)
The “Visualize approach” makes for a creative, fresh brand philosophy that includes elegant writing, concise informative language usage to quantify achievements combined with uniquely custom-designed layouts. This is accomplished through a targeted content-collection process.
We write each CV from scratch and use NO templates. We transform careers through this one-on-one approach – Our tailored CVs not only look good and read well, they also communicate your value to employers effectively.
Visualize Executive CV writers work with you to identify your value proposition, outstanding attributes, desired career path, preferred work style, ambitions as well as skills, and then present it in a professional, unique and non-boastful way.
During this journey, the CV writer and client will be in direct and constant contact to allow the writer to personally engage with and understand the clients’ aspirations. This creates a culture of trust between the writer and the client.
The game has changed. Headhunting and online candidate searches are becoming industry standard. It is imperative to ensure your CV consultant understands the latest local and international trends.
We provide a full, top-down view of the recruitment industry – from hiring trends to how executive-level headhunters operate – given that many within the organisation have first-hand experience of these roles. Our team combines years of experience in HR/Recruitment and qualified Graphic Designers.
Due to the large volume of job seekers, some recruiters/hiring managers may also use various algorithms/Ai/ATS (applicant tracking systems) to shortlist and rank CVs. ATS-friendly resumes/CVs contain relevant keywords that match the job ad, highlight relevant work experience and professional skills.
Recruiters take a couple of seconds to scan your CV for relevant content when shortlisting. Our carefully constructed summaries and creative modern CV layout ensure that your profile will rank high and be shortlisted.
Depending on the target audience, the tone and the priorities of the narrative of a CV can shift drastically. Restriction of a CV’s format and narrative to fit narrow, cookie-cutter paradigms (i.e. templates) will not create the best branding. The secret of our advanced CV writing service lies in our individualistic approach to writing and designing combined with a sincere passion for people. We are staunchly against using templates and pre-set boring layouts
Our team of professionals will transform your image and position you for success by writing/designing your tailored and individualized professional curriculum vitae & a very handy 1 page resume summary. From Graduate or Consulting Profiles, Non-Executive Director CVs to Executive Bios and CVs for immigration purposes – whether you want to transform your C-Suite Resume to a Board CV, wish to change the direction of your career completely, or simply want to make the move from Senior Management to Director level – Our innovative CVs are suitable for the local and international market, or country-specific if preferred. We specialize to individualize, and we are eager to get to know you.
Your LinkedIn profile is more often than not your digital introduction and first impression with the world. If your profile doesn’t showcase your skills and portray you as a polished professional you are letting the ultimate opportunity just slip away… Uniquely designed professional LinkedIn profiles are critical to your next career move, so it needs to make the same professional impact as your CV. Let us transform your understated LinkedIn profile into an effective career tool that enhances your professional image, highlights your skills, uses keywords to rank you in LinkedIn search, and builds your network.
We supply you with a list of the most suitable CV registration options and assist to create keyword-optimized and searchable profiles, as many candidates don’t make it past the first hurdle due to incorrectly structured or incomplete information uploads.
Personalized cover letters are written and designed to match your unique CV. We provide guidance to ensure each cover is customized according to the specific job spec/advert requirements, targeting the right audience. We also assist with writing individualized application follow-up letters.
We offer personal one on one sessions to assist you in a practical manner or telephonic / written advice and tips to ensure you are well prepared. We have over 15 years executive recruitment/headhunting and HR experience.

We strive for 100% satisfaction in every client we work with, prizing word-of-mouth referrals to further grow our business.
JOHAN MARAIS – Executive Business Development CV (North West Province)
“If you need a CV that is truly mind-blowing, exciting and beyond anything you ever expected, look no further! Vanessa and her team are extremely professional and efficient, and with their industry knowledge and expertise, they have the ability to create magic in a very short time, able to encapsulate a lifelong career in a concise and visually attractive manner. This is not a simple re-write, but rather a complete re-design that suits your skills and personality perfectly.”
FRANKY BOTHA – Mining Industry CV (Globally)
“Vanessa and her team at Visualize Resourcing were tasked to ‘revitalise’ my Curriculum Vitae. Firstly their prompt responses and good communication were impressive, but what was even more impressive is how they gained an in-depth insight into the person (me) from some basic information and a ‘clever’ questionnaire. I can safely say that they will not just re-shuffle the information on your CV and give it a bit of lipstick; Visualise Resourcing will accentuate the unique and pertinent characteristics or strengths that you have to enable you to confidently reach for the sky.”
AMANDA FOURIE – Engineering Industry CV (Johannesburg)
“Visualize did a phenomenal job! The in-depth questions they ask really help bring out the type of person you are, the colour and style of the CV and cover letter in the end complement the information so well. They highlighted all the main points in my career so well and really helped elevate my experience and expertise, which I really struggled to do on my own. Their prices are extremely fair for the incredible work that they produce and the level of service that they give.”
DANIEL DU PLESSIS – Medical Industry Executive CV (United Kingdom)
“I couldn’t afford to make use of the UK CV writers and pay in £. I asked Visualize to assist and am extremely impressed by the feedback I am getting from all the UK recruitment agencies. One even said that it’s the best CV she has ever seen and another said my CV outranked all the other CVs in all of his searches. My new CV got me 3 online interviews within the 1st week after my Visualize CV writer told me where to register my new CV!”
PHIL HOREY – Telecom Executive CV (UK)
“The compliments I am getting are staggering. Most professionals have never seen such a well scripted and designed CV. Recruiters use various algorithms/Ai/ATS shortlisting programmes and the design used by Visualize is making me the number 1 candidate out of all applicants.”
RIANA GREYLING – Head of Human Resources CV (International)
“Very few professionals have the skill to reflect personality, business skills, talent and experience on paper. Vanessa Carlson has that skill. Vanessa captures the essence of you and she portrays your personality in a very abbreviated summarized CV.”
