Jodie: One last quick note to thank both yourself and Kim for doing an excellent job on my resume and cover letters. As a side note, I sent out my resume this past Friday and I've already gotten 3 calls and 1 interview lined up. Even though its "my past," it was your groups' expertise in putting it together on paper for me and I am grateful. I will look for my package and thank you again!


I did receive the package and everything is terrific. In less than 3 weeks (I know this sounds trite but its true!) 1)I sent out my resume (via email) 2)Received 2 phone calls from executive recruiters 3)4 phone calls from corporations 4) and already have one job offer on the table! This is almost too heady for me because I am not used to and was almost (I say almost) not prepared for the initial quick responses I received. Will this continue this way? Maybe, maybe not but it is the best I have received in my career. If this doesn't tell you how happy and pleased I am with your services, I don't know what will! Thank you is about all I can say right now for lack of a better phrase! You and Kim are true hardworking, integrity driven professionals. In this day in age when everyone is looking to make a quick buck and not put a good-days' work, your services stand alone.

K.G., Sales Director, Minnesota

Four months ago, the president of <snip>, a wholly owned subsidiary of <snip>, was replaced. The new president studied the subsidiary for a few months to determine what changes would be made. As expected, the new president closed several facilities in a number of states and terminated employees here in the <snip> facility...My position was among those eliminated this month.

Luckily you and I started preparing my career campaign documents early enough for me to see some real results at this time. So far I have been contacted by recruiters across the country, by a few local companies and recruiters during the past few days, and completed an initial interview just this morning. The resume that you prepared has received tremendous praise from recruiters, companies, references and friends.

Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for what we have. In addition to my regular celebration, this year I am thankful that you expertly crafted a perfect set of career marketing tools for me, and that you completed them in time for them to make a real difference.

- D.S., Engineering Manager, Illinois

Hello Karen and Jodie,

I just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for all your work. In less than two weeks and exposure to as few as 7 companies, I just accepted a job at a software company a few minutes ago. And I turned down an offer from another company. My old resume was posted for three months and forwarded to over 80 companies without any results.

To sum it all: You girls did a great job, I had a great experience working with you and I truly feel that this was money very well spent. If there is anything I regret…is not contacting you a long time ago.

P.G., IT Manager, Massachusetts

Hi Jodie,

I received the package yesterday, and everything looks great! I have already recommended your services to people who have seen the work you have done on my resume. Great job! Thank you again.

M.B., Operations Manager, Pennsylvania

Karen and Kim -

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to wish you a happy holiday season and to update you on how my job search has been going since you completely revamped my resume.

I've consistently been getting serious feedback from recruiters and I have interviewed with two companies so far - the most recent one looks very promising as they have a number of positions for which they want to consider me. Interestingly, the opportunities are in fields as diverse as security, IT, and financial services. This speaks volumes as to how effective you were in preparing a resume for someone with diverse skill sets - someone who was looking to market the transferable skills in order to change careers. Unanimously, anyone who has read my resume has been blown away - they simply respond with"WOW!" The testimonial page, in particular, leaves them shaking their heads and thinking they have just stumbled upon the greatest hiring opportunity in years.

I would like to wish you and your team all the best for a wonderful holiday season and a happy, healthy, and peaceful new year. Best Regards,

J.F., Senior Project Manager, New Jersey

Update from client:

Karen and Kim -

As promised in my email from a couple of weeks ago, I'd like to bring you up to date on the progress of my job search. In short, "The Eagle Has Landed!"

Even in a relatively bad economy, I ended up in a new industry (financial services) with a position that provided better pay, better benefits, and increased growth/mobility opportunities. Slam dunk! Ultimately, I attribute a great deal of that success to a resume that was designed and written with all of my transferable skills in mind and it proved to be more than effective. Anyone who has read my resume has unequivocally been impressed. For those who did review the resume, the look on their faces is a dead give away...they look as if they've just struck gold and they are not afraid to say so.

For all of this, I can't thank you enough. You have won a client for life and I will, as promised, direct toward you anyone I know who can use such a service.

You and your staff are all aces! Thank you...Thank you...Thank you!

Please stay in touch and I will do the same. If you should ever find yourselves in the NY/NJ area, please let me know as I would love the opportunity to meet you. With sincere hopes of talking to you soon...

J.F., Senior Project Manager, New Jersey


Thanks for checking back with me.....Yes I received your package and everything looks great!

I applied for a position 2 weeks ago using the new resume and got called in "immediately" for an interview. It went well and I have been asked to come back for a second interview tomorrow. The position is for "Network Administrator" for a Banking Company here in Colorado.

I appreciate your help and support. I will stay in contact with you and advise you on my progress.

Thanks to everyone there for all your help, I am very pleased with your services. It was a pleasure working with all of you. Please tell Kim Isaacs that I say 'hello'. Sincerely,

M.D., Network Engineer, Colorado

Thanks Jodie. I am really impressed of how fast and professional is the service of ResumePower. Thanks again.

S.Y., LAN Administrator, Toronto

This looks great; clean, refreshed and up-to-date. Once again, I am indebted to your resourcefulness, promptness, professionalism and helpfulness. Everything looks fantastic! Once again, thank you.

M.D., Sales Representative, California


I just like to acknowledge hard work and dedication when I see it. Both you and Karen have been a prime example of this.

By the way once I land a job (smile) both you and Karen can expect a really, really nice gift from me.... trust you have my word... and it will be worth every penny spent.

J.W., Financial Analyst, New York

Dear Karen, Jodie and Staff, November 22, 2002

I have been looking to change jobs for over 18 months. I have applied to countless ads and gotten very poor results. I received the final draft of my cover letter and resume on November 12th and immediately sent it to two companies. One of the companies called me the very next day and I am very happy to say that after a four interview process and only ten days I accepted a job offer from them today. This is truly amazing. I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to each member of your staff for a job well done. I will most definitely recommend you to friends and colleagues.

Best regards,

J.D., Store Manager, North Carolina


Please let Karen know I think she did an exceptional job on my resume. As tough as the job market is right now, I know I made the right choice selecting ResumePower to craft my resume.

J.C., Supervisor, Oklahoma


Wow! Is this me!? I guess. I always stayed in the background and let my clients take the kudos. If their senior management was happy, I was happy.

The resume is great (I'd say awesome, but then I would be dating myself).

Again, thank you very much. I could not have come close to putting this into words with the skill you used. Best of all, I'm not in that "They All Lie" category.

B.H., Event Manager, Massachusetts

Hi Karen -

Finally... some time to write down this note and give you my here it goes...

Awesome!!!! Totally awesome!!! You have captured exactly what I wanted and how I wanted it (even though I did not know it). It highlights my Marketing experience and minimizes my engineering experience is such a clever way.

It was a huge pride and morale buster to see my accomplishments described in such's all true, I just never stopped to savor the moments...always onto the next big thing...Thanks a lot!

C.M., Product Marketing Manager, Texas

Good morning...
Was away yesterday, but jumped back on the laptop to be greeted by this wonderful email :-) This reads *so* much better than the hacked-up version I'd trudged around before...thank you...thank you...thank you...Take care,

J.W., Senior Director, Product Development, California

Hi, Jodie...

Thank you. I did receive my packet and everything looked great. I did have my interview with the board. I felt good about it. I did get on the slate for May 21st. The voting will take place at that time. I will be ready for my favor or not. Thank you for your support and for putting together my wonderful resume, which impressed the board interviewees a lot.

I will let you know how it goes....Thank you again for your ability to put things in writing in a way that paints a very nice picture. Fondly,

M.K., Business Owner, California

Thanks again and I'll keep you posted as to my job search. Take care,

N.S., Network Technician, Pennsylvania

Just had to add this comment, having always been upfront in both praise and criticism......I am very impressed with your talent in packaging my background and completely blown-away with this resulting first draft. Much appreciated and well worth the investment. "The Eternal Skeptic"

J.S., Marketing and Sales Executive, California

Hi Kim, I would like to extend my gratitude for all the time and effort you and Karen spent on my resume. I told Karen that the resume looks incredible and different from my original draft. More power to you and your colleagues. Again, thank you. All the best,

You did a great job! So I know I will get a great job! Thanks.


Your work on my resume has paid off! I will be accepting an offer from a very new e-commerce start up company. I got everything I wanted. I am reminded of your response when I said that e companies would not be interested in my resume and you said that I might be surprised. Well I am surprised and happy. Thanks for making my life easier and much better. I would like to keep in touch and continue to update my resume as my situation changes. If you need another testimonial just ask. You are the best. Thanks and may the turn of the century be good to you.

Follow-up Letter:

I also want you to know that my new resume' has gotten me so many interviews that I don't think I would have gotten with my old resume'. I am also getting a lot of hits on and have received several calls from people finding my resume' there. I've turned down two offers so far because they just weren't quite the right position. I want to take my time and make sure I make the right next step, but the resume' is definitely doing its job. A big thank-you one more time.

N.S., Network Technician, Pennsylvania

Just got the package yesterday, and I'm absolutely thrilled -- it looks awesome! Thank you so much,.

L.R., Architectural Intern, North Carolina

First impression when I read the resume. - WOW couldn't do a better job if I tried for a million years. I actually want to call myself for an interview now. ;~)

I reviewed the new resume you girls have written for me, and I had four people review it for me as well. Two people of which are directors at large companies, one was a resume critique at the career place and one was a CEO of a hi-tech software company. We all felt that the text in the resume was put together in the best way passable, and were very positively impressed. All four people really liked the way you marketed me in that resume. Thanks for all your help.

P.G., IT Manager, Massachusetts

Hi Karen,

The cover letter is great! It really complements my resumes and highlights my skills/accomplishments for potential employers. Thank you so much for all of your work. I appreciate your thoroughness and attention to detail. If this doesn't get me an interview, then they must not be hiring! Sincerely,

B.L., Kindergarten Teacher, Hong Kong

Thanks for the first draft of my resume. It looks great. I would hire me sight unseen.

S.F., Healthcare Director, Michigan

I am so happy with the work you've done. The way you've turned this around is going a long way to helping me feel positive about this experience. As I haven't hunted for a job since I was a clerk typist in NYC 30 years ago, this is really foreign soil for me. The only ideas of how to go about this that I have have been gleamed from the Internet and chatting with friends. I do well on interviews, so I know that all I have to do is snag their attention. Your work is helping me do that and I appreciate it.

B.M., HR Strategic Business Partner, Virginia

Hello Karen,

The draft resume that you created is EXCELLENT, far beyond what I expected.

D.S., Engineering Program Manager, Illinois

Hey Karen,

Just got the resume and wow!! it looks great! i am going to look it over and fax back any changes (I doubt there will be any)...Also one request I also needed a cover letter is that still possible? Thanks again,

T.J., Pharmacist, New York

WOW!!!!!! I just came home from class and I was pleasantly surprised! You are fantastic!!!!!!! I could never have done what you accomplished for me! You are great!!!! I most certainly am happy with all of your hard work. I wasn't even expecting to see this yet. I appreciate your diligence in the matter. If you need a testimonial, you got it!

CS, Manager, Illinois

I'm faxing my approval to print. Thanks ... you guys are real pros and I'm so glad I ran across your services on Monster!

S.L., HR Manager, Texas

Thank you very much for the excellent services composing a rather difficult resume, at least from my perspective. Please accept this email as confirmation that you have completed your services as contracted, in a most exemplary fashion.

S.B., Company President, Connecticut

Morning Kim, Thank you for working so hard. I received the draft late last night. I appreciate it and am very happy with what you've done. Regards,

M.H., Civil Engineer, South Africa

I think I'm falling in love with you. As much as I write, I could have never written that letter. Thanks so much....

I have had the most amazing thing happen. I actually got a "letter of inquiry" from <snip>. Oh Lord - the job of my dreams. (Did you have anything to do with this? If you didn't I would still "fib" and say yes, then I will follow you to the Moon!)

L.C., Director, Nevada

Hi Jodie!

My thanks to you and Karen for the great work and but more so the even better result!! Karen truly is incredible, as I'm blown away at the resume that she has created for me.

I'm confident in my abilities and what I can do for a business and this resume reflects that. I'm excited and look forward to taking it "out for a spin" and distributing it to prospective companies I have targeted in my search.

Please pass on my thanks to Karen and Kim!!!! I will let you know how it goes!

P.L., Supply Chain Director, Wisconsin

You helped me with a great resume in a previous job search that landed me my current position. Looks like I need your help again!!

D.T., IT Project Manager, Pennsylvania

First I want to thank you for all your help and the incredible resume you and your team put together for me.

Believe this or not, I landed the first position where I used my new resume. That is exactly what I needed after 4 months of searching, the right tool. A professional presentation of my skills on paper. In person I do well in interviews but the first point of contact is the resume and with your help I did it. Thanks.

F.E., Administrative Assistant, Washington, D.C.

<client note to a friend>

The link is They did an excellent job for me. I worked with Jodie and she's wonderful. Kim reviewed and approved it. Plan on spending a few hundred dollars and several hours of your time to have your resume done right.

J.B., IT Project Manager, California

Thanks Jodie, everything looks great!! I will keep you updated on the job search. Thanks again to you and your staff for all of the help. You have a great group of people and a fantastic service. I will definitely reccommend you to my friends! Warmest regards,

S.L., Educational Administrator, California

Hi Jodie,

Thanks for your follow-up note. Things have been busy. I received your package and please accept my thanks! Everyone I've sent my resume too that I've talked with likes it, they say it is very impressive. Thanks again and it was nice hearing from you. Regards,

K.M., Executive Assistant, Georgia

A million thanks Karen for your sending me suggested books and for your great services at resumepower.

I had composed a nice and longer email saying you are an angel for sending me all data I have asked for.....and a lot more! Maybe it was better that I lost it because now this one is short and simple.

R.R., Senior Engineer, California

Hi Karen,

Thanks so much! It looks great! The turnaround time was perfect also. I'll be sure to recommend your services!

K.B., Account Manager, New Jersey
