J.S. - Career reentry after long-term unemployment
"M J - I have taken your advice and I intend to resurrect my original career. While it may have seemed logical for you to say what you said, people stopped making those suggestions to me years ago. They gave up on me; I gave up on me. Thanks for lighting the fire again."
J.A. - Electrical Engineer
"M J - I just started working for a new company as a Project Manager in Manhattan! The new resume, cover letter and Linked In profile you wrote for me helped make it happen, but only after you steered my career in the right direction and gave me the confidence to even make a move."
F.B. - Sales Manager
"Hi M J - The résumé is very, very good. Everyone I show it to loves it. The addition of all the key words and making the employment dates more concealed was an excellent strategy. I will call you tomorrow about interview coaching. I want to rehearse what to say about the job gap."
J.F. - Insurance Claims Specialist
"Just to let you know by last Wednesday I had 3 job offers. Thanks for your help in getting back my confidence and for writing the résumé and cover letter that made my phone ring!"
J.D. - Law Librarian
"M J - I got a job at a firm located in Garden City. I don't have to commute to Manhattan anymore. They said the résumé was so comprehensive that it eliminated a lot of the questions they were going to ask me on the interview. They spent the interview time telling me about the firm. Whew!"
S.S. - Administrative Assistant
"M J - The résumé you wrote was excellent. It transformed a problematic background of recent part-time jobs into a powerful message about my strengths. In addition to getting me interviews it has made me more confident in discussions with employers. I'll let you know where I land."
L.O. - Technical Writer, Information Technology
"M J - Thank you very much for the prompt delivery of the résumé and cover letter. Over the weekend, my wife and I read it several times and couldn't help being thoroughly impressed. We see no changes necessary. Thanks again."
V. G. - Director of Product Development & Merchandising
"Hi M J - I have a start date of September 15th . Thank you so much for all of your guidance and expertise. I know that my résumé was an enormous factor in landing this position, which is actually my dream job."
R.M. - Marketing Director
"Hi M J- I got two interviews from the first four résumés I sent out and I accepted one of these positions with a salary $10,000 higher than what I was making when I came to you. I feel foolish that I initially balked at your fee. I am so grateful to you!"
J.B. - Corporate Attorney
"The human resource manager at [company name] interviewed me yesterday and said my résumé was one of the most well-written ones she had ever read. I made it to the next level. Thank you so much for all of your efforts. You are truly great at what you do."
