I wanted to take a quick minute to thank you and your excellent associates for helping me in my job search. Prior to using your services I was averaging about one call from every 10th resume or application I submitted for a potential job. This had led me to increase the number of positions I was applying for which meant that I was going after positions that were not really right for me. After working with Distinctive Documents and reworking my resume I was getting responses from about 40% of the applications I was sending out, and I was only applying for positions that were directly in-line with my qualifications and expectations. Within one month of working with my new resume I was in the position of having multiple offers and have ended up accepting the perfect position. When this job was posted on LinkedIn (where my profile had also been updated by Distinctive Documents) the employer received over 300 applications and I was one of 6 people interviewed. My LinkedIn profile and resume were instrumental in getting me the interview, and in helping me secure my new job. Prior to utilizing your services I had a good resume that was producing results, but after working with your firm I have a great resume that is formatted in way that clearly demonstrates my value to prospective employers in a way that separates me from most other job seekers. The process of working through the worksheets and talking with my writer also helped me articulate my experiences in a value driven perspective that has served me exceptionally well during interviews. I have directly recommended your services to several colleagues and will continue to do so. I had been looking for a job for 6 months prior to working with Distinctive Documents and I found myself applying for positions for which I little excitement. After going through the entire process with your team I was able to narrow my search and land the perfect career position as a Xxxxxxx Manager with a major European company expanding operations in the U.S. market. Thanks so much for your help!

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 am very pleased indeed with the results you've produced on my behalf, Michelle. One of my former business associates, whose judgment I generally regard as excellent, said that the resume "hits a home run"! I am in fact in the process of scheduling an interview with a large Wall Street firm that, after reviewing my resume, apparently concurs with this assessment.

Hi Michelle, Just wanted to update you that I have accepted a position with a consulting company that focuses on sales force effectiveness. The resume and cover letter clearly caught attention with the managing partners. I called them and the one I talked to had a call to me on his 'to do' list...Thank you for the discussions and for the work you did on preparing me for the employment market. I really needed the expert advice and work on my resume since it had been so long since I even tried looking. Best of luck to you for a successful 2012.
