I wanted to get back with you and let you know that on Friday, I accepted a job for which I am very excited. I will start December 2, 2002 as the Vice President, Sales and Marketing for a company called XXXXXXX. They provide full service packages for XXXXXXXXX. I will also be the business unit manager for a new business they will launch in the coming months. Their services are based on providing the very best and comprehensive service at very competitive prices. It is a great opportunity to leverage my last 10 years in college and university relations and youth marketing. It is also located right here in XXXXX, about four miles from my house! There will be some international travel (very exciting) but there won't be the heavy domestic travel that I've had for the last 7+ years. And so I am now embarking on my first extended vacation since college. This feels like such a luxury. I want to sincerely thank you for all of your help through this process. The resume that you created was absolutely critical in my landing this position. I had more than a half a dozen interviews within weeks of circulating my resume, was a finalist for three positions and was offered two positions. The one that I accepted is without a doubt the best fit. I am truly thankful and feel very blessed to have had my search turn out this way. I hope all is well with you and I will continue to recommend your services very highly.

Thank you for checking in to see how things are going. Sharon sent me the initial draft and I must say I'm quite happy with the result. I'm going through it to see if I want any changes done, but I doubt I will want anything major changed. I am so glad my friend recommended distinctive web for me! And I am now recommending it to my uncle who also wants to work on his CV. I already sent my cv sample (the before and after) and he was impressed :)

I used your services approx 16motnsh go and have now been in my current role for 1 year. I am 100% positive the investment in your services helped get me an interview and secure a 6 figure position. In a sea of similar resume's and great talent searching for employment you helped me stand out from the crowd. Still we remain in tumultuous time and deep recession. I think it only prudent to that I keep my resume and cover letters up to date with current employment and performance measures. I would like to consider using you to update my documents. Do you offer an update service?

J.M., North Carolina

Outstanding quality and professionalism. The writer was excellent (hope to again work with her on future updates, focus resumes, thank you letters, etc.) She was creative, thought provoking and openly shared her knowledge and experience. I could not be more satisfied with the end result. Great investment and will certainly recommend your services to others.
