I received the resume package and everything looks great!

I have some more exciting news...I got a job already!! As soon as I received your completed resume draft I applied for a job on-line. It was one of the job postings that I had send over when you were working on my resume. The posting had been out for quite some time so I wasn't sure if they were still looking for someone. I attached my new resume and within 8 hours the HR recruiter from the company was calling me to set up an interview! I've applied for positions with this company in the past and was never contacted, so , I am sure it was my new resume that caught their eye! I had two interviews here at the local office and then a third phone interview. They called me the day after the phone interview and made me an outstanding offer. I start my new job on June 16th!

I would again like to thank you and Karen, for all your help. You both did an wonderful job!!! I'll will pass on your name to all my friends and family and let them know what an outstanding service Advanced Career Systems provides. My sincere thanks,

C.M., Project Manager, New York

Dear Karen: Thank you for taking time to speak with me today. I was very, very impressed with your ability to extract info. without making it seem like an interview and I was equally impressed with your warmth and vitality. I look forward to receiving my forthcoming cutting edge resume!!!!!:):)

I just wanted to take this opportunity to formally thank you for all your help in my career search. You both did a wonderful job in writing a very attractive resume. There wasn't one human resource director who didn't compliment me on the great detail and fluentness of my resume and I just wanted to thank you on a great job. Thanks for all your help.

P.S. I landed a job with one of my top choices.

T.H., Financial Consultant, New Jersey

Hi Karen:

Thanks for your support! I am very happy with both resumes! The latest interview in North Carolina was a position very similar to the position I held in Chicago. They said I was one of the top 3 candidates they were examining but I never get my hopes up and always strive for a detached attitude. We will see what happens.

Now a potential opportunity in Vermont has presented itself. Anyway, I will
let you know what happens and do not regret spending the bucks with ResumePower as it could easily pay off. Regards,

M.C., Chemist, Ontario, Canada

Wow Kim. Thank you. It looks great. I will look it over and let you know if I have any questions, but on first glance, it looks incredible. I just don't think I could ever do what you do. Brevity is not a skill that I have...

J.H., Technical Project Manager, Washington

Hi Kim and Karen,

How are you two doing? I wanted to send you a note to follow up. First, thank you soooo very much for making my resume and cover letter look absolutely fantastic. I could have never come close to making it look that professional.

Good news. After a few interviews, I was offered a position at my old company. Thank you so much and I miss both of you!!!

B.B., Customer Service Rep, Pennsylvania

I hope you're doing well. I believe I'm pretty close to finding a job. My resume has been a real success and is generally congratulate. I even had it reviewed by 2 different so called experts that found nothing to change. So thanks again for your excellent work and I'll let you know where I'm going pretty soon.

Anyway, I have a friend that is a marketing expert with a ton of impressive experiences. I did recommend you to him. I believe he will contact you, so please take special care of him. His name is <snip>. Take care and have a great day

<from a hiring manager to a senior director in North Carolina>

A quick addendum to my previous message...after viewing hundreds of applications for the business development position with <XYZ Company>, I wanted to pass along a compliment regarding the style, layout and content of your resume. Of the many I saw, it definitely stood out and clearly portrayed your experience.

Hi Jodie, I just wanted to let you know that I have been offered three jobs. I don't believe I would have been interviewed by two of the companies if I did not use your services. I took a job with <XYZ DotCom Company> check us out on the web. Thanks for your help and best wishes in the future.

GM, Sales Rep Transitioning to a Dot Com Company, Maryland

Karen, I want to compliment you on your work. The resume looks outstanding.

H.P., CIO, Florida

We just returned from vacation and I received the draft today. Wow, it looks
great! Quite a switch from my own efforts!

K.A., HR Manager, Ohio

<note from a recruiter to a client>

The woman who did your resume did a fabulous job. As a recruiter, she highlighted some of the most important aspects of a person's skills in one glance. You do not need to work with a staffing firm. She is your recruiter. Work with her directly because she will help you land whatever you are looking for. Get me her name because I have about 3 VP's who could use her services desperately. They are cautious so they might not get in touch with her right away, but I know this gal can write some very marketable resumes.

The final resume looks great. I am not sure if I mentioned it to you but the resume you prepared for me last year got me 3 job offers in the space of 8 weeks so I am pretty confident in my ability to pick up a new job quickly in the event I need to.

D.S., Software QA Engineer, Massachusetts

Hi Karen,

I must say, I am impressed. I never thought I could look this good on paper.

S.W., Advertising Assistant, Illinois

Looks beautiful! I've enjoyed working with you and Karen. My sincere thanks. Will let you know how it sorts out. So far, I'm on a very short list for 2 opportunities.
Enjoy the holiday.

I.L., Executive Recruiter, New York

The cover letter looks great. I might have you construct a thank you letter for me in the near future! You did a fantastic job with my resume and cover letter. Thanks once again,

J.K., Equity Trader, Connecticut

You may not remember me, but my name is <snip> and you did some work on my resume earlier this year. I was really impressed and I got the job I was seeking.

D.S., Senior Consultant (Big 6 firm), Washington, DC

After having the opportunity to review the resume and cover letter you prepared for me, I would like to take the time to thank you. At a time in my life when my personal and professional plates are past full, the service you provide through your business is so greatly appreciated. My resume and cover letter look great.

RR, Director of Sales and Marketing, Maine

I think you did an outstanding job! I'm not sure if I will leave my current position yet, so I might be back to update my resume in the first quarter of year 2000. Again, your work is outstanding, professional, and concise. I will definitely recommend your services to anybody entering the job market!

(Initials withheld upon request), Investment Professional, New Jersey

I just recently got a job offer in Phoenix, AZ as a consultant. They said I can start as soon as I finish school. They are also going to pay me about 70% more money than I had expected. Thank you so much for your excellent work on my resume. Think of yourself as a great start to the rest of my life.

By the way, I wish that all business was conducted in such a personalized yet professional manner.

S.S., Systems Analyst/Programmer, Illinois

Once again many thanks for an outstanding job on my resume and capturing so well my career.

R.G., Executive, Oregon

Well, it looks wonderful. It's so good to see it, you girls work miracles! I look forward to hearing from you again. Thanks.

M.M., Child Life Professional, Florida

You folks have done a very professional job. I won't hesitate to recommend your company to my friends for their needs in future. Thank you much! I believe these documents will bring me some good opportunities and luck.

W.K., Vice President of Engineering, Georgia

I've been swamped trying to put a deal together to sell <ABC Company>, so I've only been able to get my resume out to a few individuals at this point. However, I wanted to share these comments from an inside contact I have at Intel: "I see a lot of resumes and I have never seen anything like this. Bravo. Not a bad career. It will be a lot of fun to shop this around. Perhaps you should start the bidding on eBay!" You probably get a lot of great feedback like this, but I wanted to share it with you anyway.

W.A., Senior E-Commerce Executive, Oregon

I just read it. I'd even hire me. Actually I sound so good on paper I'm asking myself if I can live up to it. Nice work - I'll get back to you.

C.J., LAN Engineer, California

Hi Jodie,

I have not forgotten you; in fact, I am about to commence a new job. As soon as I get established there, I will ask you to update my resume-seeing as you did such a great job last time.

M.D., General Manager, California

Hi Jodie,

Long time since we've talked. I landed a great Product Management job with <comany name snipped> in August. I used my resume from ResumePower (with some additions to fill in the time gap) and it worked very well. Based on my resume I was selected as one of two finalists for interviews (out of more than 100 applicants), and I landed the job! I'm convinced that a great resume makes a huge difference in a difficult job market. Thank you, and do keep in touch.

M.H., Product Manager, Utah

Hi Liz,

Thank you for your note and kind words. I must admit that I have reviewed about 7 or so agencies and have found that your staff is the most talented. The resumes you generate stand out and are inviting to read, unlike the others. I trust you will do the same with mine.

C.M., Senior VP, New York

Dear Karen: Greetings. Excellent work. Thank you for everything...If that is OK with you, I wish to continue briefing you with the pursuit of my job. Best regards, and my gratitude to an excellent job.

A.A., Library Director, Virginia
