“Your resume preparation helped me a lot! You did an excellent job! Thank you!”
“Prior to your assistance, I got absolutely nowhere! I applied for at least 12 positions without being referred and I could not understand why. I was really frustrated! I searched the web and found The Resume Place. I realize now how different the federal application process is from private sector. Resumes must be in a proper format, you must write answers to KSAs, provide additional documentation, and target the right jobs. Without the professional assistance, guidance and advice you provided, I would have never realized these results. The investment I made with The Resume Place has paid off!”
“I want to first start by saying THANK YOU! You were always prompt in your responses and very patient with me. I applied to only 2-3 positions before being selected for an interview for a position as GS-12 Procurement Analyst with the Dept of Health & Human Services DHHS. I was offered the job AND a salary increase of $10K over my private sector salary. I will strongly recommend your company to family and friends.”
“Everything looks and sounds amazing! I know I couldn’t have done this without your help! Sounds very professional and makes me really seem like I have at least one year’s worth of contract experience! Thank you so much for all your hard work!”
“I just wanted to let you know that I got the government secretary job! They pulled all veterans first, then they came back and pulled me and others … today was my first day! Thanks for all of your help!”
“I wanted to thank The Resume Place for helping me secure a position with the federal government. I am frugal by nature so I had concerns about paying for a resume writing service. In the end, I decided to go forward with The Resume Place because securing a position would mean a large return on my investment AND peace of mind. I applied for numerous federal positions prior to working with Resume Place but did not make one cert list. I applied for three federal positions using my resume written by The Resume Place and made all three cert lists!”
- Administrative Law Judge Candidate (and private sector Social Security law attorney), upon completion of the online component of the exam (May 2013)
“Soooo are you going to be at the NOSSCR Conference at any point??? If so, I’d love to thank you in person for all your encouragement and guidance!”
- Steve, upon notification that his (non-veteran) multi-grade application had scored 100 points (May 2013)
“You certainly have done your job and I am very proud of you and all that you do. You are valued and appreciated.”
- Former US Ambassador, regarding new resume and presentation bio (July 2012)
"I appreciate your professionalism and responsiveness. Your research skills are outstanding; you probably found more references, news stories and the like about me than I have seen. You did a fine job and I appreciate your recommendations to make this document as airtight and presentable as possible."
- Joe, Military to Federal, GS-14 (April 2013)
"Thank you so much! I am sure you hear this all the time, but there is NO WAY I could have done this without you. I am sure you must feel good knowing that you literally help people out every day."
- Ray, SES candidate (May 2013)
“Just a short note to let you know I’ve been scheduled for an interview next week. I certainly wouldn’t have made it to this stage of the process without your assistance. Thank you again for all of your hard work!”
"I just wanted to let you know that my resume has been referred to the selecting official. I’ve applied previously for similar positions with my old resume and those were never referred. Thank you so much for your work on my resume."
"Thanks again for your help with my resume! I got the job!! I had my interview last Monday, Friday I got an E-Mail from the HR Dept. Could not have done it without your help!"
- V.J. (A Military service member stationed in Okinawa, Japan)
"Thank you for the outstanding service and professionalism, this was a very rewarding experience for me. I am not sure what the outcome will be, but I was very happy with the service provided by you and your staff. Starting over after 21 years is not an easy thing to do, going from hero to zero, but the little time communicating with you and your staff created an ease in this transition process. I am very happy with the product I received and will recommend your company to other service members."
"I’m delighted that you were on target and in sync with me in this application process. I’m pleased with the resume and the cover letter. Regardless of the outcome, I am proud of the documents that I submitted. Thank you, and I will let you know how this process unfolds."
"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your help with my resume. As a result of your hard work, I landed 5 interviews with federal agencies and had to turn down another one. I got a job offer with the NIH and accepted their offer. Originally, they interviewed me for HR assistant, but I did so well at my interview that they called me the next day and said they wanted to consider me for the HR specialist position. I start my new job on October 12 as a Human Resources Specialist!"
"I would like to thank you all for your hard work, dedication and commitment as you assisted me with my resume and KSAs. I could not have done it without the training. I will continue to tell others seeking to acquire a career with the Federal Government about your organization."
"I just wanted to give you an update on the job search. I got the job offer for the VA Hospital in Connecticut yesterday! I was so happy and they said I was by far the lead candidate. I will be accepting the offer and the position as a GS-12 HR Specialist in employee relations. It’s a great opportunity. Thank you so much for everything again. If it weren’t for you, I am sure I wouldn’t have been given this opportunity."
"Amy was a prompt, courteous and experienced writer who not only dealt with my incessant questions but provided me with the best looking resume I could have expected. Your books and services are PRICELESS. I did struggle with the price at first but I came to the realization that the costs are an investment in my future and are a small amount compared to my government earning potential. I will HIGHLY recommend your services to any of my colleagues that ask about my resume."
- C.J., Landed Job with Department of Veterans Affairs
"My resume looks awesome! I have received numerous considerations – opportunities in Washington DC, Valdosta, GA, Orlando, FL, Germany, and Tallahassee, FL, to name a few. I have chosen to take an offer in Orlando, FL with the Dept. of Veterans Affairs on 1/3/11 – The Land of MICKEY MOUSE! Thank you for all of your efforts, expertise, and guidance."
