First of all, I want to thank you
for the great resume. Wow! I can
see why hiring a professional is
worth the cost. I must admit that
I had some reservations at first
since mine is not a "typical"
business career (if there is such
a thing) but seeing how you took
the material and developed it is
R.S., Minister, Massachusetts
Just a quick note to let you know that
I appreciate your efforts during
the entire process of gathering
the needed information and producing
the actual resume. Unfortunately,
or fortunately, a person who has
not had to change jobs often does
not have the experience to create
a decent resume. I am very happy
with what we produced, and I believe
it will be invaluable in my future
job search. Karen did an excellent
job and please pass along my congratulations
on a job well done. Thanks again,
C.D., Financial Executive,
Thanks for your help with both my resume
and my cover letter. I received your package
at the beginning of the week. The new resume
has been getting great attention. I already
have one offer on the table which is about
34% higher than my current comp. I finally
feel like I'm being considered fairly for
the value I'm bringing to the table. I'll
keep you posted on how things turn out.
L.H., E-Business Consultant,
Thanks so much for the information. I
appreciate you thinking about me. By the
way, I just got my rough draft and love
it. I am so pleased with my results. Really
helped with meeting my objective! I am
moving through it for finalization. Karen
G.S., Sales Executive,
Just wanted to let you know that I received
the rough draft of my resume today....Wow!
Is all I can say. I forgot that I was reading
information about myself at one point.
I like what I see so far...Again, thank-you
for the great resume...I'm very pleased
at this point. The layout is upbeat and
contemporary, plus the wording is incredible.
You used the right words and made key points
in ways I never would have thought...
D.S., Business Development
Hi, Thank you for the article. I have
reviewed and discussed the first draft
of my resume with Karen. Wow, I am very
pleased with her work! We made some minor
corrections/modifications and she should
be sending the final draft back to me today.
Again, I would like to stress that her
talent and skill reaffirmed that I made
the right decision to have a professional
compose my resume. Thank you.
J.M., Human Resources
I want to thank you for your help with
my search, I have positive news to report.
As you know I kicked off my search in early
October with goal of having working options
by Thanksgiving and offers by Christmas.
The pace was faster than expected in that
I had several options and 3 offers by Thanksgiving.
I have accepted a senior role at <XYZ
Company> in Boston as Principal of the
financial services practice. In the course
of my search I heard comments on resume
that included: it's the strongest I have
ever seen and best resume because it answers
a lot. With your help, my resume targeted
my search and the subsequent discussion/
interviews process so I could focus on
finding the right next opportunity.
J.K., Principal, Financial
First off I need to say Thank you! Second
would be WOW. Karen I guess I needed
an outside source to re-inject the
qualities I have gained over the
years. I didn't take time to stop
and analyze what talents I did have!
J.G., Customer Service
Professional (career changer), New York
Thank you for a job well done. I certainly
like it and I am equally well impressed
with your writing abilities. I am glad
I chose ResumePower!
M.C., R&D Chemist,
Just wanted to drop you a line to say
THANKS for the great job you did on my
project. (Resume and Cover Letter.) I took
one look at it and had to say "Wow,
I'd even hire me now." Everyone I've
shown it to said what a great job you (all)
have done on it. I'll keep you all updated
how things turn out. Again, Thank You Karen!
M.D., Manager, Pennsylvania
Sorry for the delay in responding to your
note on any changes to the draft of the
resume you created for me. Unfortunately
the work you did on it has become disturbing
to me. For some reason I cannot seem to
turn off the flood of offers that have
come in the last few weeks and now I am
in a position of trying to determine which
to accept after 2 weeks of interviewing
with a number of companies :-) :-)
Had you there for a minute on that second
sentence, eh? ;-) the power of words and
resumes for the matter!
As you might have guessed I am quite happy
with the results. In any case I only sent
the resume out to 5 places and of those
5 had offers on 4 of them. The other is
one I actually turned away as it was not
of interest after talking to the HR person
in more depth. I have narrowed my choice
down to 2 firms and I am leaning toward <XYZ
DotCom> at this point. While my salary
won't be that of an Executive yet, the
position sounds awesome and I hope in a
few years to have some new experience to
add to the resume. Since I am sure your
business will still be around, seeing how
well your work makes things happen, I will
be in touch down the road when I am ready
to move onward and upward.
Other than that I wanted to say thank
you so much. Your ability to shape into
words my experience provided me the conduit
to launch myself into the prospects I chose
and land an awesome position. I am just
glad I only sent this to a select few otherwise
I think my email and phone would have been
overloaded :-) Thanks much Kim! You are
R.M., IT Consultant
/ Applications Architect, New York
Thanks Kim! I looked over the resume briefly
and I love what I see! It is amazing to
see who I am and what I can do on paper.
I don't think that I could have described
myself that way.
I think I have really been underestimating
myself for a long time. I have been told
that before but to actually see my experience
and qualifications on paper makes a big
difference. I have butterflies in my stomach
as I am talking to you just thinking about
what may be ahead once I start circulating
this resume! (That sounds a little weird
doesn't it). I will look at it very carefully
this weekend and make the necessary changes,
Thank you again and I will touch base
with you next week. Have a great weekend!
C.M., Sales Representative,
Karen, I received the first draft of my
resume and although I only had a minute
to spare I was thrilled when it first appeared
on the screen and couldn't wait to read
it. You made me feel proud and confident
with each line I read and I can't wait
to take the time to carefully go over it.
You are a talented Genius! Thank You for
exceeding my expectations.
I just wanted to reply to the e-mail you
sent me roughly a week ago. I'm extremely
pleased with the resume you and your staff
developed for me. My apologies for not
giving you feedback sooner, but I kind
of needed to get the job search process
going :) I greatly enjoyed working with
you and Jodie.
J.F., Chief Information
You really have a knack for bringing out
the best in people - my compliments! Our
conversation was illuminating, invigorating,
and just about the most fun that I've had
in quite some time. You have a wonderfully
effortless laugh and I had to fight tooth
and nail to resist the urge to continue
to say things that would encourage it.
Seriously though - it really was a pleasure
dealing with you and my confidence has
sky-rocketed knowing that I have someone
with your abilities on my side. Here's
to a long and mutually profitable relationship!
<After receiving first draft:>
I have to admit that I really had the
highest expectations imaginable so you
can just imagine how pleased and surprised
I was to discover that you were able to
exceed those expectations. My compliments
to your talent and ability. You have really
elevated your craft into a true artform.
I raise my glass (figuratively, of course,
since it's only a little past nine in the
morning) to you in salute! This is only
the beginning of what I hope will be a
long and mutually profitable relationship.
D.S., Network Analyst,
Thank you for the beautifully written
resume draft! Wow, I've read it several
times and am impressed with my skills,
LOL! No, I'm just kidding about that part,
but you did a fabulous job of showcasing
I wanted to ask your advice on what I
might say if I have an interview and someone
compliments me on my beautiful resume and
asks whether I wrote it. What would you
suggest is the best way to answer that
question without raising eyebrows that
I'm applying for writing positions yet
didn't write my own resume? (Believe me,
I've thought about this several times and
keep telling myself that it's not because
I'm a bad writer but that you are so much
more experienced in this very specialized
field. Would that be convincing to a recruiter?)
I would also really appreciate any feedback
you might be able to give me regarding
my cover letter samples. As I mentioned
on the phone, I wouldn't want to "ruin" your
great work with a poorly written letter!
Thanks so much,
R.L, Copywriter, Minnesota
Thank you for the excellent work you've
done on both this resume and the original
two years ago. I've already referred a
co-worker to your site and would gladly
refer anybody to whom I show the resume
V.S., IT Technician,
Hi Jodie, What at great job!!! Spoke to
several people about having resume professionally
written. After seeing my own resume, I
will insist they look no further than ResumePower.com.
D.R., Senior Programmer,
The resume looks outstanding! I am really
impressed with your ability to convey my
career so eloquently.
K.W., Logistics Manager,
It looks beautiful! Probably my best investment
to date! I'll review tonight and add any
changes and also complete the highlighted
information. I think you made me look great!
K.H., Division President,
Financial Operations, Pennsylvania
The more I read and look over my resume,
the more I love it!!! Thanks for bringing
out the best in me and transforming these
qualities so eloquently and succinctly
onto paper. You are a gifted writer and
interpreter of facts, and and I am truly
awed by the results! I am sure the resume
you have crafted for me will open the floodgates
S.C., Executive Assistant,
My resume looks great! I wanted to thank
you for your hard work and time spent on
my new and improved resume. I look forward
to using it to help me secure a new and
better job. Thanks again!
M.C., Mechanical Engineer,
Hi Jodie! I received each of your emails!
Thanks for sending them over tonight...I
appreciate that you stayed late to send
them to me.
The resume looks great!!! Please let Karen
know she did a great job, she is very talented.
I would also like to thank you for all
your assistance and patience. You have
been very accommodating in setting up all
of our phone calls around my schedule -
I really appreciate this! You are very
professional and yet easy to talk with,
I felt very relaxed and comfortable speaking
with you. Jodie, thank you for your help!
A.M., Business Consultant,
Quick update (I always appreciate news
from my clients). Submitted the updated
resume that you performed your magic on.
1st submittal, 2 interviews and an offer.
Interviewers complimented the resume (and
relevant work experience). Accepted the
offer today - drug screening tomorrow.
All that is left is telling my current
employer (of 12 years!!) of the change
in career path. How are you at emotional
resignation letter - I'm kidding. Just
wanted to thank you again - and let you
know how it worked out. I am certainly
available to endorse and generally tout
the quality of your services. Do you have
a preferred forum (the newsgroup, or simply
the letter above, or?)
C.S., Director of Marketing,
