"One last quick note to thank both yourself and Kim for doing an excellent job on my resume and cover letters...I sent out my resume this past Friday and I've already gotten 3 calls and 1 interview lined up. Even though it's "my past," it was your groups' expertise in putting it together on paper for me and I am grateful." -- K.G., Sales Director

Resume Relief!
"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

I cannot begin to explain the expression on my face when I first read my resume. If only I had a camera... Anyway, you folks did one helluva job on my resume, and I am thoroughly impressed. I hope you don't mind if I solicit you some business because when my friends see my resume, the will be calling you. Thanks again - I would hire me :-)

T.S., Chemist, North Carolina

On a more professional note, just wanted you to know I landed a great job four weeks a go. It has everything I have been looking for. I also got two more requests to talk about new opportunities today. Therefore, as you can see... my new resume has been working for me. Once again, thanks to all of you at ResumePower for a great job. Best Regards, "Very Satisfied Customer,"

L.S., Controller, Ontario

Last night I had a chance to really dissect the resume and it is absolutely fantastic!!! I cannot thank you enough for making me look like an All-Star! I would definitely hire myself!!!!! I truly appreciate your work and will recommend your services to friends and family. Thanks again for your awesome work, I love it. Have a great day,

J.W., Securities Trader, Connecticut

I love this resume, especially the profile section. I am so embarrassed that I sent you my old resume -- you must have thought it was from the stone ages. Anyway, I showed this to my co-workers to get some feedback and they all wanted to know who did it so they can get their resumes done. So before you are inundated with their phone calls, what is the next step for distributing this resume?

T.P., Oracle Developer, Washington, D.C.

I'd just like to say that this is an amazing resume you have done, and I appreciate you speeding it up to help accomodate my schedule.

G.G., Communications Specialist, Arizona

Thanks again for all your hard work and personal interest in my resume. I did receive the package and I am thoroughly impressed with the finished product. I am certain that it will open doors for me if I can connect with the right parties.

T.U., Security Manager, New York

I just wanted to thank you again for all you help with my resume and answering all my questions. I have since gotten a position at <ABC Network Company> as a Program Manager for <ABC Networks>. I have had to ramp up quickly but it has been challenging and exciting. I am so glad to be in the streaming media industry. It is a total blast and the perfect marriage of broadcast and internet. I have been here a little over a month. I feel I received a fair compensation package with options even though I was relatively inexperienced with Internet aspects. I hope you are doing well and one day make it out here to Washington State. Then you'll know why we don't like to leave and why native PNW people don't particularly take too well to "transplants".

K.S., Program Manager, Washington

Good news is, the guy was so incredibly impressed with my resume. He said he looks at 50-100 resumes per week, and mine was unusual, and gave all the information he wanted. He mentioned the high quality of the resume to me and showed it to his colleagues. He wanted me to go to an interview this afternoon, but he couldn't get a hold of the man. I went up to the office on the off chance that he might fit me in, but it turned out Friday at 9 am is the time. What was interesting about that, is that he gave me the original resume to give to the potential employer, and when I asked about taking the cover letter too, he said the resume was so impressive and informationally packed that it was all I needed. I will probably address a cover letter to him tonight, just for propriety, but it was really nice of him to say the resume would carry the deal. Kudos to you. Thanks for your help. As always, you are the BEST!

B.L., OTC Equity Trader, New Jersey

Good morning, Kim, Haven't talked to you for a while, how are you? I'm really glad to tell you that I've got a job! I've accepted an offer from <XYZ Company> for an expatriate assignment. They hired me as a Plant Manager for their joint venture in Shanghai, China. It's a two year agreement. By the end of it, if I choose to stay longer, I can. Or they will bring me back to the States and place me in one of their domestic plants. They had made the package really good and flexible for me. I can come home every three months for two weeks, and my wife can go with me and work in the plant if she chooses to. I don't know if you know about this company. They are the third biggest <snip> manufacturer in US. They are right next to <snip> and <snip>. So this is a good way for me to step into their door. For this, I thank you very much Kim. You sure have made a striking resume that brought this to me, and I really appreciate that. Remember that you told me to allow one month of searching for every $10,000 I expect to earn? If this was really true, then I had to wait for 18 months for this job. So you may want to adjust your estimate now. Well, I know you're busy, and I don't want to take up too much of your time. I'll be leaving for Shanghai next Thursday. Once I got settled down, I'll give you my email address over there; and let's stay in touch. Thanks again for your help, Kim. You take care!

W.K., Plant Manager, China

Jodie, I received the package on Monday. I appreciate the chance to work with Resume Power. I have already passed along your information to another person and will continue to recommend the services of Resume Power to others.

G.B., Purchasing Manager, Texas

Could not have hoped for a better response. Now I have a new problem, how to choose.

J.R., General Manager, New Jersey

You guys are amazing. I already received a call from <snip> to schedule an interview for the position of Director of Direct Marketing. Do you offer services related to coaching for interviews? I would like to take up your offer for the three-pack cover letter package. I will highly recommend your services to friends and colleagues I know currently engaged in job searches. Thank you kindly.

I have completed my review of the cover letters and do not have any changes. Thank you kindly for a job well done. I appreciate your time and effort.

I will keep in touch to let you know how my job search progresses.


I had my interview yesterday with <snip>. I met with several people and they all complimented me on my resume. Kudos to you and your wonderful colleagues. I will stay in touch and let you know if I am asked back for follow up interviews.

With deepest regards.

G.A., Marketing Director, California

Thanks Jodie. I received my package. Again thanks to you, Karen and your organization. The resume demonstrates my knowledge, skills, abilities and experience in a profound display. I will continue to recommend you to others.

J.K., HR Director, New Jersey

WOW!!!! there is no adjective to describe what I thought when I opened the attachment and saw my "new" resume! I am absolutely floored! I will post my "new" resume asap!

L.B., Attorney, North Carolina

Karen, just wanted to say thanks for everything! I will keep you posted on my job search. I am slowly working through the links that you sent. Thanks. I have been very impressed by your work and I would definitely recommend you guys to other people. Thanks again.

M.H., Elementary School Teacher, Santiago, Chile

Karen, I found a new job yesterday, I start in two weeks, I'm making $10,000 more a year with excellent benefits. Thanks for the killer resume. :)

P.W., System Administrator, California

Hi Jodie,

I just wanted to say thank you very much. I have such good success with my resume! I have had 5 responses and 2 interviews set up for next week! I am hoping that they just keep coming! I appreciate all of Karen's hard work on my resume as well as all the help that you have given me. I will definitely recommend your company in the future and will probably use some of your other services. I did receive the package and it looked wonderful and included a lot of great information! Thanks again!

N.C., Assistant Store Manager, PA


I would like to thank you and ask that you also extend my gratitude to Kim. I've never had my resume professionally done before and this was a painless experience! I'm already waiting for my second interview with MCI based on the resume you provided. I've also recommended your company to friends. Thanks again,

B.F., Technical Installer, Illinois


Thank you for all your help. Karen was wonderful to work with and I am extremely pleased with the services I've received. Best regards,

C.R., Career Changer--Security Specialist to Paralegal, Massachusetts

It all looks great! Please proceed with the final version you have sent for both print and my computer. Also please let me know how to make changes to this information on my computer. Thank you again for all your help and hard work to make me and my resume look as professional it can be. I could not have made it sound and look as good without your help. Please feel free to contact me if you have any question. Have a great and well deserved vacation.

M.R., Senior Sales Executive, North Carolina


About a year ago you wrote my resume for me--just wanted to let you know that I was able to secure my same position at another company (my previous company was sold and the new owners let all management go). And, my new employer actually paid me more!! Also, I took 6 months off work for <snip> and had to tell people calling me that that is what I was intending to do! So, thanks for a fantastic job on my resume--I found a great job, am getting paid more and had a very enjoyable 6 month vacation this summer!!!

S.M., IT Project Manager, Michigan

Once again you have demonstrated an unparalleled ability to provide "added value." Thank you. The time you have saved has allowed me to meaningfully participate in helping to get the <snip> battle group ready to deploy, no easy task given the hurdles they have faced. On behalf of a greatful nation...

C.R., Operations Executive, Virginia

Thanks Karen. The whole experience was a very pleasant one and I certainly appreciated the job you did as well as the enthusiasm you brought to the task. I look forward to receiving the materials and putting your writing skills to good use. Thanks again.

T.D., Chief Information Officer, Arizona

Karen, Everything looks great to me. I especially like the format you used, since it allows me to add or delete various projects, ect. to narrow the focus of my response. Thanks again for the excellent work.

J.B., Project Manager, Florida

Hi Jodie and Karen,

Thank you so much for getting this back to me so quickly, It looks great!!
You gals are the best! Thanks again. I'll keep you posted, hopefully soon :). Thanks again,

M.G., International Logistics Manager, Nevada

I did receive the package but have been away for several days and have not even been able to use any of the wonderful resources you all created for me. Thank you for your help with everything. Hopefully the end result will be a wonderful new job! Kind regards,

K.M., Employee Development Manager, California

Jodie was very punctual with sending the ASCII files with well written instructions. Thanks! My resume went into distribution this morning and I have received more email replies then I can handle for the first day. Thank god for this weekend. I know where my time will be spent. I will keep you posted as to the results of this campaign. Once again, thanks very much to you and your team. regards........

D.E., Technology Executive, New Jersey

Wanted to let you know that I got a great job at <snip>. The first job I went after using the new resume. Thanks again.

S.B., General Counsel, Michigan

How are you doing? I am writing this letter to thank you again for doing a great job on my resume. I have been faxing my resume out trying to get a job, and I have been getting calls back and going on interviews. I thought it would be hard for me to get another job since I haven't been working since January 1999. But my phone has been ringing off the hook. Thanks a lot Kim. Keep up the good work. Sincerely,

D.L., Returning to the Workforce, New York

The package locks great and I have already started to distribute the resumes and the feedback is great. I will be in touch in April or May to do a broadcast email campaign.

F.D., CEO, Pennsylvania

Got the resume. I'm going to take it home tonight to review it in detail, but it looks unbelievable and great! I'm really impressed. I'll get in touch with you tomorrow about revisions, if any. Thanks again. I'd hire me!


Good morning, Kim. So far, I have interviewed at <XYZ>, twice now, for an executive assistant position with a strong opportunity to advance to office administration within six months based upon their growth and need for someone to perform that task, and also based on my qualifications which you so beautifully presented in my new resume (the HR director commented on what a great resume it was, by the way, worth every penny!). They are completing their interviewing process next week, and have kept me in the loop the whole time informing me that they'd checked my references, and assuring me that I'm still the top choice on their list. They will be making a decision some time in the next two weeks, so we'll see what they come up with. I think I've got a pretty good shot at it. Just waiting to see what kind of offer is made should I turn out to be the one they choose -- good benefits though and lots of stock options given, apparently several times a year, plus 1,000 given off the bat as a "signing bonus" for coming on board. They know what I'm looking for salary-wise, and told me in the interview that I was "in the range." Anyway, thanks for following up with me! As soon as I know what happens, I'll let you know. Have a great day!

More follow-up:

Hello, again. Just wanted to check in with you to let you know that I landed the job at <e-commerce company> as Executive Assistant to the president (the one I interviewed for a couple of months ago). I got everything I set my sights on, and I think due in great part to the fantastic resume you prepared for me. It really turned out to be a great sales tool. Thanks again!

R.R., Office Manager, California

Hello Jodie,

Yes I did receive my package and I have been getting very good feedback from my resume. I am very happy with it. Thank you very much for your help. I have also referred you to a few of my friends. Thanks again,

M.A., Administrative Assistant, Connecticut

I accepted an offer a few days ago and started this job as a controller at an ecommerce start-up company called <XYZ>. I even got interview opportunities in Microsoft, Eddie Bauer, Arthur Andersen recently. It is a pleasant experience to work with you. Thank you for any efforts you made for my job search. Keep in touch.

T.F., Controller, Washington
