I have spent hours on the final draft that you sent, I also showed it to a dear friend and mentor who has seen 100X more resumes than I and hired and fired more high level execs than I will ever know, she was quite impressed!

...Although we have never met you and I are the team that will insure that my family is taken care of. All of this to say that I am extremely pleased with the final product! I have been too close to see how truly efficient and functional the document is. You fit a tremendous amount of "stuff" in a pretty concise package. The biggest problem with writing your own resume is objectivity, when to include something and when to leave it out, it should be easy (if I'm as good as the resume makes me sound), but it is very difficult. I learned a long time ago that all business is basically the same, but as humans we think that just because we are unique, our situations are unique and no one else can understand what we do, have done and/or need in business. You delivered a product that proves that you too have that understanding but more importantly know how to make us feel and look as unique as we are. The resume is outstanding, type style, layout, conciseness and its packed with good quality writing. I am very pleased. Our exchanges have been lively, thought provoking and insightful, I'm glad you are my side! Again thanks for everything, you will get referrals, and if its okay I will keep you posted on my success.

All of the folks I spoke to while trying to decide to use DCS and while preparing my resume and bio with DCS were just great. They are all very personable and professional and quite knowledgeable of the DCS products and services. I am happy with the resume prepared for me by Sharon Green. Her first draft only needed a few modifications to get to a completed draft. I appreciate her patient nudging to move me along in providing input to her. Also, it was so good of her to quietly listen to my description of my job duties and experience so that she could weave those tings into my resume and bio. Thank you Sharon!! I was at first very tentative about using a professional resume service. But DCS customer support personnel were very good in addressing my concerns and alleviating any anxiety I had about using DCS. In the end I feel that DCS has given me a much better resume and bio then I would have drafted myself. I am confident that the DCS product will help me greatly in obtaining another position. Friendly, professional, helpful and empathetic personnel at DCS.

I just wanted to thank you very much for your help. The resume is great and I can't believe that I did not do it sooner. It is a night and day difference between my old and new resume. After I received the resume the response went from 1 in 10 [originally] to 9 in 10 [with new resume]. I have accepted a position with a large insurance company less than 4 wks after I received the resume. Again, thank you very much and I am sure that I will be back to update my resume.

I felt Nancy did a wonderful job and I enjoyed working with her. The quality of the resume was far beyond anything that I could have ever created myself. This was my work experience, but Nancy gave my resume a life of its own. I would highly recommend your services. I really never thought that I would need a resume writing service, but its amazing what a professional writer can accomplish.
