What I can say is this, ten years ago I credit your resume for providing the edge over the competition with regards to "getting my foot in the door" after relocating to a new city. Within two weeks of distributing my resume I landed a 100K+ engineering position that I still hold today. What else can be said, that is a quantifiable edge. I also found that your service is absolutely as outstanding today as it was ten years ago.

Hi Lisa, I just wanted to say Thank You for the wonderful job on my resume and cover letter! The difference I must say is night and day; it's really amazing:) I feel so much more confident distributing my resume now. Before, I was often hesitant to apply for more competitive jobs because I subconsciously didn't think my resume was up to "par", or worthy enough to distribute, especially to top tier jobs like Google, and other Fortune 500 jobs...Silicon Valley is known for its very competitive job market (and I must say it definitely lives up to this reputation) and before I felt that while I had the skills, experience, and drive to compete for a job here in the San Jose and San Francisco area, my resume did not allow me to show it. Now, with my new resume and cover letter, I feel so much more CONFIDENT that my resume will get me noticed in the more competitive jobs, which is exactly why I hired Distinctive Document's services! So, in this case, I did definitely get what I paid for :0) (This sounds so much like one of those accolades on your website lol but it's true!) I cannot thank you enough, and I cannot stop admiring my resume and cover letter...I love them that much!

Hi Michelle: hope you are well. Just a head's up that I've referred about 10 people from Xxxxxxx to you. Hope a few turned into clients. I never let you know that thanks to your services I was 'one for one' -- one resume sent, one interview, and one job offer! That's all it took! Happy holidays.
