“My resume looks great and I never could have written it in this format by myself. Amy was wonderful to work with and reworked the resume until it was just right. She is truly a great wordsmith! I don’t think I would have gotten into the government without her help.”
“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.”
“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.”
