You Have One Chance to Make a First Impression. Make it Count!

“I just want to let you know that this week I had four interviews and 3 job offers! One is with my mentor’s company, XXXXX, another with XXXXX, and a third with XXXXX. The salary ranges are from $80-$100k. I’m deliberating now about my options, and will start “negotiations” this afternoon. Two job offers came on the same day (yesterday). Three of the interviews came from my on line responses to ads. The XXXX interview was arranged by my mentor…This all happened (the callbacks) between 1-3 days after I posted my resume. The VP at XXXXX who interviewed me said that he reads thousands of resumes, and that mine was really exceptional. He was talking about your work. Thank you!” – C.R., New York

“Thank you for your services and the excellent resume you produced…There is no question in my mind that this distinctive resume provided me with far more opportunities to talk to recruiters and principals than I would have had otherwise. More than once I heard recruiters say “I pick out two resumes from over 1000 internet responses and you were one of them”…Bottom line I achieved exactly what I was looking for in terms of position, location, and income AND I had choices in terms of multiple offers. It all started by getting someone to notice my resume in with a thousand others.” – C.M., Indiana

An Investment In Your Career & Resume Is An Investment That Will Pay Rewards For Life!

“Great news ! After not much success with my job search I had your company rewrite my resume. Immediately after I received my resume from you I started to get interviews. Sometimes up to 3 different companies a week. After only 4 weeks of interviewing I am delighted to tell you today I have received a job offer for a wonderful job. Not only is a great company and location it is also a pay increase of 28%. I did the math and the cost of my resume has only 1% of my pay increase. The Human Resource Manager said that she literally received hundreds of resume and mine stood out among all of them. Thanks so much.” – M.B., New Hampshire
