The job market is highly competitive and it is not therefore unusual for there to be many applicants for one vacancy. If you are interested in applying for a job, the first step will of course be preparing a new CV, or revising and re-vamping an old one that you already have. You will most probably need to write up a persuasive cover letter and/or a personal statement.
These documents will be your first contact with your prospective employer, and indeed first impression lasts. If these documents are presented to your potential employer with spelling, grammar or other errors or any clumsy language structures or formations, the person in charge of filtering job applications will certainly form a negative view about.
So to ensure being shortlisted for your dream job, it is crucial that you present all valuable information related to your qualifications and experience in your CV in English language that is free of errors, idiomatic, concise and coherent.
This is exactly where we can help.
Our proofreading services for job seekers are performed by experienced proofreaders who will put a professional touch on your CV and cover letter, by thoroughly and carefully checking it for grammatical, punctuation and spelling errors, as well as for coherence and general presentation.
Some think that they can just proofread or check their own script; however, it is a known fact that when we check our own writings, we ‘see’ what is in our mind rather than what is printed on the paper.
Others think that automated spelling and grammar checkers are sufficient and that there is no need to hire a proofreader. However, while automatic grammar and spelling checkers are useful, they do not always detect every mistake. For example, many words have acceptable alternative spellings and dictionaries permit either spelling.
Therefore, an automatic spell checker will accept both alternatives, but whatever alternative you choose, you should consistently keep to that throughout the document. This is why we check documents manually. Proofreading is important because it may increase the chance of your prospective employer being impressed by your CV.
That is why it is definitely beneficial, and worth little investment, to sign up a professional proofreader or a proofreading service provider that sees your document as the prospective employer sees it.
At the Ultimate Proofreader, we have been helping many job seekers with proofreading and editing services that are very affordably priced, completed within fast turnaround times and - above all - of the highest quality.
Proofreading for report writers
We live in an age where almost everything needs to be documented. Whatever one’s job, the amount of paperwork has increased exponentially over the past 20 years. Most employers and employees are required to make reports of their work activity on a regular basis.
This ranges across many areas of work such as: annual reports of major international companies as well as small companies, the legal, educational and medical professions, the commercial, financial and retail areas, the construction and manufacturing industries, the transportation and tourist industries, local and national government as well as amateur and voluntary organisations.
If you are responsible for preparing and publishing a report, however large or small, you will of course be aware of the importance of the accuracy of the report. It could be a report that will be read by company directors or by members of a particular company or organisation or it may read by the general public. Irrespective of who reads the report, it is essential that it is accurate, well written and well presented.
If it is important that reports are made, then it equally important that they are free from language errors. This means that it is important to hire a professional proofreader. All too frequently, those who write reports are under great pressure at work, and if the writing of the report is rushed, then even simple errors can occur. In fact, if the writer of the report is particularly busy, there may be no time to check the report and read over it a second time.
We offer a proofreading service to writers of reports, in which we check manually for spelling and grammar errors and general presentation. This is an ideal service for all report writers from professionals to amateurs, who may simply have insufficient time to check their reports themselves.
Proofreading for bloggers
Millions of blogs and posts are written every single day, whether for sharing personal views, informative insights into a topic or promotional information about a product or service.
If you are blogging for a large following, a company or a business, then ensuring your blogs and posts are free of any embarrassing basic spelling, grammar or punctuation errors is essential.
Of equal importance is certainly the way you have written your blog, the language you have used and the structure you have adopted. Several questions arise in this regard.
Is it written in clear and understandable English?
Is your choice of words suit your topic and audience?
Does it convey the message to the target audience?
Is it well-structured?
Generally, a professional blog would need to be clear, concise, readable, engaging and error-free.
This is where our proofreading services can help you. We have proofreaders and editors who are published authors and can expertly proofread your blog to ensure it is written and tailored to the expectations of your readers.
Although a language error or badly structured sentence here or there may be condoned if you are writing for non-professional purposes, it is particularly important for blogs written for professional or corporate purposes to be free of errors, impactful and engaging.
Our professional proofreaders are available around-the-clock to help correct, amend and improve blogs and posts written by individuals, businesses or organisations.
Who are we?
We are a professional dissertation proofreading services provider that is based in the UK. We are located close to London, in the southeast.
Over the years, we have helped a large number of academics, postgraduates and PhD students from various universities in the UK and across the world with proofreading services of the highest quality for their dissertations.
We have clients from universities such as the University of Cambridge, the University of Oxford, the University of Leeds, the University of Reading, and the University of Sheffield, the University of New York, Utrecht University, University of London, among many more.
We strongly believe in our name, so we strive to provide immaculate thesis proofreading services of a quality and standard that can hardly be matched by any other service provider.
We have come to exist and thrive, fully aware that, if we do not deliver high-quality services, we would not stand an opportunity in this highly competitive dissertation proofreading services market.
For this reason, delivering academic proofreading services of an excellent quality has been our first guiding principle.
Our second guiding principle is affordability. We are equally aware that if the services that we deliver to clients in the UK and abroad are highly priced, we would be beaten by others who provide thesis or dissertation proofreading.
So, we have been determined to provide outstanding, yet affordable and reasonably priced, proofreading services. We are a caring, rather than greedy, service provider; we appreciate how students often run a tight budget, especially with the high cost of education in the UK.
We have therefore priced our service offering in a way that would make them accessible to everyone.
The third guiding principle we have been working to is to deliver our excellent, affordable dissertation proofreading services in a timely fashion. Although we try our best to complete assignments within fast turnaround times, we never give priority to speed over quality.
For us, priority always comes first. Unlike other providers, our proofreaders and editors may spend one or even two hours on a single page to correct, improve and clarify the text. We do not work on an hourly basis; we give every document we receive all the time and care it needs, no matter how much time or effort we put into it. Our ultimate goal is to produce a text that is proofread or edited to a high academic standard that would help the student or the academic.
Having said that, we still strive to meet orders with tight deadlines by making sure that we have proofreaders and editors available 24/7, ready to step in when needed.
The Ultimate Proofreader prides itself on having a very experienced team of proofreaders and editors who help us deliver those unique proofreading services to our UK clients.
We are also a very friendly service provider, and are always happy to interact with our clients, whether before, during or after the completion of their assignments.
We also believe that our task goes beyond the mere improvement of the language and style of writing to an informative, insightful educational service to academics and students. For this reason, we provide feedback, as appropriate, on the areas of language that need to be worked on. Additionally, we have created a blog on our website that is purely dedicated to language-related matters.
Our aim is to help academics and students, particularly non-native speakers, to learn and improve their knowledge about the use of the English language for academic purposes.
We can be reached by email ([email protected]) or by phone (07717750188), around-the-clock.
