Thank you for your services and the excellent resume you produced as a result. 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.

Happy belated new year! I hope that things are going well for you and all the gang at Distinctive Documents. This note is to let you know that I’ve moved to Jacksonville where I have accepted a position with XXXX the title and escrow insurer. As such, I’ve moved back into operations and although it’s early in the game, things appear to be going well.

Michelle, et al., I want to thank you for your assistance during this last job search. Fortunately, I was able to make the change quickly and to a familiar locale. I’ve also referred a number of people to you as your resumes have always brought me luck. I was only out of work for 6 weeks and everyone said I had one of the best resumes they have ever seen.

Last Monday I received a call from a low level recruiter that had read my old resume on the Institute of Packaging Engineers job site. She was looking for a candidate to fill a Packaging Engineer position that paid $60-$70,000 per year. I emailed her my new resume, the one you created, and immediately received a call from her boss. The boss was a much more savvy, high powered, recruiter. She had a much higher position in mind for me...The interview went very well. My second interview, this time with the CEO and the directors of the companies two current divisions is scheduled for this Wednesday...The position is for a Business Development Manager to start a new division. Once sales hit $4 million dollars the position will become the director of the division and expansion will begin in earnest. The salary for this position starts at $120,000 per year. I just can not thank you enough for the all the hard work you did to create such an outstanding resume and set of support letters. The recruiter received the recruiter letter and resume. The company received the resume and the thank you letter. Things are looking good to land the perfect job for my experience and aspirations.

I got this comment from an executive search firm that we are discussing an opportunity...“By the way, you have one of the sharpest resumes I’ve seen! The design is very professional and readable.

The job search has ramped up into high gear since I starting using the resume you prepared for me. I interviewed today for a position as a Property Accountant with a real estate management company. My "skill set" was a great match with what they were looking for, so thanks for your efforts. I feel confident I will be offered the position. Thanks again, I'll keep you posted.
