Frequently asked questions

An unknown fact is that Recruiters use ATS Software which works much like Google – searching through your CV for keywords at lightning-fast speed. 

If your CV is a match for the job – you move to stage 2 of recruiting. If the ATS Software cannot “read” your CV – you are most likely to be ignored by Recruiters. You receive no responses even if you’re well qualified for the job. 

Our Star CV’s are fully optimised for all Recruitment (ATS) Software. Recruiters will begin seeing your CV and your Inbox will be very different.

In addition to Optimisation, we also provide formatting  ; see below  

As mentioned in “What is Recruiter Optimisation”, Recruiters use ATS Software.

Your CV should always be in PDF/Word. There are other accepted formats but these are most used online. 

There are Structure (format) rules to follow when building a CV. The fonts, tables, spacing, headers, images, colors, symbols, location of content etc. determines your “CV Format”. 

There are many different CV formats online – we do not recommend using free online CV builders. See “Free online CV builders?”  below.  

Our Star Packages are super affordable with our most Basic Star CV for only R200.00 – other CV Services in South Africa start from R1000.00 upward. 

We don’t design CV’s – we craft Lifestyles. We’ve helped more than 8000 South Africans land jobs using our Star CV.


Imagine being the only person to walk into an interview with a Professionally Designed CV, Front Page and Cover Letter. Our Star’s leave Star Impressions, long after the interview is over. 

A R500.00 investment into the document you rely on to earn money to live is as important as a drivers license or identity book. Our Star CV’s are suited to be fully editable years from now, providing a PDF and Word version of your CV.
