Hi Sharon- I just wanted to let you know that I sent my resume in Tuesday morning to the Xxxxxxxxx Association and they called my Tuesday afternoon to schedule an interview for Thursday morning. The job I applied for is Director of Events Planning and Volunteers. Thanks for writing a great resume. I'll let you know how it turns out.

B.O., Colorado

I want to thank you with all the effort you have done! I have found already some companies which are like to have me and they want to employ me here in my favorite Country. I know, that the key was also the work you did, brushing up my career on paper and make it in a way I would never be able to. Again, thank you so much ! Receive my best Regards and I will stay in touch with you. Maybe some day I will need your help again if I would come to the US.

I.H., Hong Kong

I've been so busy with my job hunt, I haven't been able to write you! I've gotten responses from many recruiters and most of them mention how great my resume is. Eli Lilly is supposedly very interested in me right now, but I haven't heard from them. I had a rep recommend me for a position with them. Otherwise, I'm interviewing with a biotech company for a great sales position and I'm going through the process with Abbott, Merck and AstraZeneca. I actually received the call out of the blue from a district manager with AstraZeneca last night. He was looking over my resume because he just had a position open up in his territory and he wanted to talk with me. We connected this afternoon and he invited me to interview with them on Friday! ... I've had a lot of people ask me about my resume and I belong to many bulletin boards and discussion groups for pharmaceutical sales wanna-be's. Many people ask for resume advice and tips. I always point them your way! I'm so glad I picked you. I just can't say enough about what a wonderful job you did on both my resume and cover letter. My husband is definitely going to ask you to do his resume once I get a position. I hope some of these other people take my advice as well, it will make their job search so much easier!! Thanks again, really. I'll let you know when I land my position!

...then a couple of months later, L.C. wrote again to say:

I just wanted to send you a quick update. Everyone was definitely impressed and dazzled by the resume you created for me! Since I started my search, I've seen dozens of other sales resumes and yours left them ALL in the dust! Some of them were even professionally designed and I really can't believe how little they got for their money. Although I did receive offers from pharma companies, I finally accepted an offer from a medical device company! I'm now a medical sales consultant and I LOVE my new career! I want to thank you again for helping me get my foot in the door with landing interviews and for all of the stress you took off my shoulders by taking my resume on. Now that I have my dream job, my husband will definitely be contact you SOON!

L.C., Rhode Island

Hooking up with Michelle Dumas and Distinctive Documents three years ago was like adding rocket fuel to my career trajectory. I subsequently was promoted from senior writer to editorial creative director and then editor in chief with Muscle & Fitness, a major national fitness magazine. Concurrently, I also opened a series of new freelance writing accounts, including one with Men’s Health, the world’s largest men’s magazine, and signed three progressively more lucrative book deals, most recently with LL Cool J as my collaborator.In every instance, the resume Michelle initially created for me, and the lasting impression it leaves, cracked open the door. It’s an amazing confidence builder to sit down for an interview with the CEO of a major American publishing company and have him look down and say, “Wow--that’s a really impressive resume.” And the fact that a professional writer turns to her for assistance tells you how good she is.

I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that hiring Michelle was the best investment I’ve ever made in my career. I probably have been repaid 100-fold for what I spent.

Above and beyond the quality of Michelle’s work, the way she goes about doing it is a revelation. Her adherence to process, deadlines and quality control is so unyielding that I’ve been inspired to apply it to my own work as well. When she says something, she inevitably holds herself to it, which is rare these days.

In sum, to anyone looking for a resume consultant, I give Michelle Dumas the highest recommendation I can possibly give to another person: A+, five stars, you name it. You won’t be disappointed.

J.O., California

Michelle, I just wanted you to know that a recruiter commented positively on my resume today...she said the body of the resume was impeccable, the best she has seen in a long time.
