“Thank you so much for crafting such a great resume for me. You are really great at picking up on details and capturing the essence of a person. I really admire the way you are able to go through the process of asking the right types of questions and extracting the key information from those answers in a way that weaves together a person’s professional narrative. You definitely show my story better than I ever could have on my own. Your work is impressive and I’m very grateful to be working with you.” – May, Teacher/Teacher Trainer, Los Angeles, CA
“Two days after receiving my final resume from you I applied to a non-profit that I’ve always admired. This is the only job I’ve applied for since. 36 hours after submitting my resume and cover letter I received an email expressing interest in interviewing me!
The bigger thing here is that I have sent out hundreds of resumes over the last 3 years with only 2 responses and those were for more administrative positions. I’m aware that you did the resume writing that got me in the door, and your process allowed me to line up with a better version of me — I never felt great about my resume before and that energy went with it when I applied for jobs. This time, I was confident (just as your company name implies) and I’m already further ahead than I’ve ever been. Thank you Shannon!! –Teri – Non-Profit Director/Coach, Vienna, VA
“Thank you Shannon. This process definitely gave me more than I bargained for — in a good way. This was a giant step in taking back control of my life. I’m thrilled with the end product and will keep you in mind for updates. It was a true pleasure not having to figure out how to get my professional life down on paper. I’m excited to move forward with this document. I will certainly be recommending you to others“. –Teri, Non-Profit Director/Coach, Vienna, VA
“Thank you for the time you spent on this (resume) with me . . you’ll be pleased to know that this one you helped me with got me a prestigious job as a camera man with the New York Yankees.” – Scott, Videographer, Florida/New York
“I deal with enough business professionals in my career to know that the truly proficient ones stand out. You are very good at what you do. I’ve recommended your services to a couple of my co-workers (in hopes they can) enjoy your competence and positive outlook.” – Joel, Business Systems Analyst, FL
“I will say that my resume & its format . . .are definitely working . . AT & T Broadband called the same day they received it. This is the same firm that rejected me with my old chronological format in the past!” – Scott, IT Professional, Oregon

– Vickie, Family Programs Coordinator, Florida
“I called upon Shannon for her assistance in preparing for an interview with a federal government agency. Preparation was essential. Shannon was very familiar with (behavioral) interview process and her expertise was incredibly helpful in assisting me with identifying potential questions I would be asked.
She walked me through my answers and gave me a significant amount of constructive feedback. Engaging in a mock interview session with Shannon was a great preparation tool and also served to boost my confidence as a candidate.
Her many years of experience allows her to tailor her sessions to each of her clients. She knows what information will make you stand out from the crowd and give you the advantage over the other candidates.
Shannon’s expertise and experience gave me the preparation necessary to give a strong interview and I ended up receiving a job offer. I would definitely recommend her services in preparing for an interview, reviewing/writing a resume or assistance with cover letters.” -Lauren, Special Agent Recruit, FBI, Florida
