Thank you so much for the great resume. Thomas did a superb job and should be commended for such. The resume looks great and Thomas made the entire process easy and smooth. I would like you to know that since I was laid off the day I returned the worksheet to you I was in a scramble to draft up my own just so that I would have something to use in my job search until I received my "Distinctive" resume. When I received my resume, I was blown away at how much better Thomas was able to present the same information. More than that though, my resume from Distinctive Documents is truly a confidence booster and for that I'll never be able to thank you enough. Please recognize Thomas for his great work and professionalism. And thank you, thank you, thank you! I will recommend your services to others without hesitation.

You're awesome! Due to my new resume I actually see myself as qualified and marketable. Now let's see if I can put it into action. Thanks so much Michelle.

Hi Michelle. Since our mailing,I have had six phone interviews with recruiters leading to being a candidate for Chairman of a {Name of State} based company, CEO for a {Name of State} Company and being introduced to two private equity firms by another recruiter for Board Directorships. Two others want to introduce me to private equity firms they partner with for proprietary deals. Finally, {Name of Recruiter} of {Name of Firm} out of Silicon Valley said the resume was among the best five he has ever seen from both a format and content standpoint (maybe all 5 are your clients !)...On the VC side, I received a couple Email responses. I thought you might want to know all of this. Thanks for the great work.
