I don’t know of any services but I ask my friends to review my resume. You can reach out to someone at the company you’re applying to and ask for a resume review - on LinkedIn. Some people will ignore, while others are happy to help.

What's your background?

LBS MBA 3 yrs in IB (early career) 7 yrs in mckinsey (left as a Sr EM) 2 yrs in a sovereign wealthfund/property developer as chief of staff to CEO and building out their corporate venture fund On the side I have built 3 start ups(2 retail focused ecommerce and 1 logistics tech) and actively coach at 2 large incubators in the Middle East. Have a finance/economics undergrad but I can program in basic languages such as java and php as well as analytics in python or r. Have also done those micro masters programs at mit and Colombia focusing on analytics and big data.

OP - that’s an impressive background. I’m sure you have done your share of thinking before landing on FAANG as your next career step. Regarding CV review - I think connecting with someone at FAANG would be your best bet. I highly doubt a prof CV review service will be able to fathom the diversity of your experience and then help weave a coherent narrative that resonates with FAANG recruiters. Accumulating micro-credentials is certainly going to help, but I feel that unnecessarily puts your rich experience in a narrow box. FWIW - I’m going through a similar-ish process (incidentally have a long ME mega projects strategy experience myself...) and would be happy to bounce ideas if that helps. Otherwise, wish you all the best! Thanks.

Awesome, thank you. I will dm you and we can hustle in together

I second all the advice to find someone in a similar role at the companies you want to apply for who can help you understand what’s most appropriate for those teams. You can likely tap your network to find someone who is in a similar position. When I moved to FAANG recently I did this and got great insight and advice from a former colleague who had moved over a year earlier. I think it would be difficult to find a professional service who’s really attuned to what these companies are looking for because (at least in my case) it’s very non-traditional.
