Have you used this service? What did you think? Has it helped you to get shortlisted for a post?
Hi there Rugby Gal.
I don't work for this service myself (I do the individual face-to-face stuff and the seminars), but I have contacted Julia who is our wonderful administrator for the TES Careers Service, and asked her if there is any feedback on this.
She says that we don't have any data as to who gets what afterwards, but people do sometimes e-mail her later to givean update. Here are two typical comments that she has quoted:

I found the advice given by all
of the team… most helpful and personalised. Comments were extremely
constructive and encouraging. I really sensed the thoroughness, care and time
spent on the check that had taken place.

E-mail Julia on email@example.com for how to book a meeting with me personally.
Look forward to seeing you!
