Dear Donna,

Once again, thank you! You are a great writer.

Tom W.

Ilona-

This looks great. I can’t find anything else that needs to be changed.

Jackie G.

Donna,

I actually I have very little feedback to give as you have done an excellent job in capturing my qualifications and achievements. I would like to submit to you a piece of information that was in my personnel file that might be / could be listed on the resume (I am just not sure where or if it needs to be).

Other than that, I would like to finish up the final draft in time for the weekend/Sunday job postings, so can you let me know by the end of the business day on Friday (24th )if that is going to be possible. Thanks.

Regards,

Doug L.

Ilona:

Thanks for the quick turn around. You are a doll! I wasn’t sure if chopping up the resume bothered HR people. I am not up in resume etiquette. Whatever you think, I will do, since you are my expert!

Stephen W.

Donna,

I am impressed with what you put together. I think what you came up with conveys a better picture of my skills and abilities and should grab the attention of prospective employers.

I have made some comments and edits in the resume using track changes. Please let me know what you think.

Best Regards,

Ed H.

Peter,

Jeanie has done an outstanding job with my resumeI am extremely pleased with her work. I am having her do a cover letter for me as well, so within the next few days I should be ready to go. I would really be interested in learning more about the other services that you offer for getting my resume in front of the right people. Bounce back with your thoughts on next steps.

Thanks,

Kevin W.

Dear Rosie,

Thanks for getting back to me promptly with the resume. It looks good.

Tell me more about converting the documents to electronic format for the Internet. I don’t understand.

Thanks.

Dave G.

Rosie,

By the way, the resume looks great. It is exactly what I was looking for.

I feel like I certainly received value for the money.

Thank you

Ross C.

Hi Donna,

Thanks so much for my resume. I will be proofing it tonight and tomorrow. So far, I think it looks great!

I will email you soon with any changes on either document.

Thanks again,

Julie E.

Kelley,

I just got done talking with Jane Quick, and I shared with her how pleased I am with the final resume that you created. This represents me very well and I feel proud to use this – it’s absolutely what I needed.

You were quick and accurate, and I do appreciate that. I can’t believe how you could take so much information and narrow it down to the truly powerful and important description that you developed.

Thanks again!

Linda E.

Donna,

Your letter was perfect as written.

The resume needed a couple of reorganizations to be correct. It was easiest to delete and etc. in order to keep each word in the 2 pages.

Now, that was a real problem!!

This resume is great—I never would have described myself this way!

Patricia K.

Ilona,

I just wanted to thank you for the EXTREME MAKEOVER that you gave my resume!!!!!!!

The minute I posted your resume, the calls just began pouring in like crazy. I could tell when I read the verbiage on the resume that it was going to be effective, but I had no idea it would be this soon that I would begin seeing results! It was only 2 weeks ago when you did my resume and I have already interviewed with SEVERAL Fortune 500 companies including CNN, Georgia-Pacific, and Beazer Homes.

I was extended an offer from Georgia-Pacific for a position as Executive Assistant to the Vice President of Human Resources, starting at $51k…almost a $10,000 increase from the pay at my previous employer! I have accepted the offer, but I still have hiring decisions pending for CNN and Beazer Homes! Every since you did my resume, I have been having an interview everyday! You are “the BOMB”, (for lack of a better choice of words)!!! You are truly knowledgeable about the Executive Support industry and it shows through your articulate usage of industry buzz words and carefully selected verbiage. This was truly the best $xxx I have ever spent!

Sincerely,

Bridgett B.

Dan –

I am extremely pleased with the revisions you have made. The draft you did comes much closer to what I would expect it to be. I have reviewed the draft and made some notations in blue. I addition I have filled out the client form and hopefully offered some additional detail that will make the resume even better. Please review and let me know if you need further clarifications via email or a discussion. Thank you for your excellent work on the draft.

Alison S.

Hi IIona-

The resume looks great! You have done a good job and I have enjoyed working with you. So wish me luck… maybe we’ll have an opportunity to work together again in the future.

Also, I’m assuming the ASCII will arrive soon?

Thanks for all of your help!

Jeanette H.

Thanks Christine.

The resume looks amazing and thank you for all your help.

Kathleen K.

Denise,

Thank you for your help. From this point, its really just a couple of semantic issues (eg. its HIPAA not HIPPA), and I’ve already changed them. The cover letter and resume are great and I couldn’t be happier. On a final note, As of the end of last week, I was offered and have already accepted a V.P. position with Smith-Nephew Orthopedics.

Take care,
Mary McC.

Jane,

I received it today. Proof reading right now.

Looks great so far. Excellent job by Rosie. Exactly what I was looking for.

Ross J.

Dear Jane,

It is nice to hear from you and thank you for following up. I am currently in London on an assignment (consulting) for three months. (June, July, August) This assignment is a direct result of the emails (cover / resume) that I sent out from Malta.

Please give my regards to Peter and let him know it worked great … “GREAT JOB TO THE TEAM”

Yes, I am still very interested in doing the mail out / posting in the US market .. however I am somewhat delayed in coming back to NY until September time frame .. I think we could be targetting either July or should we wait until September – perhaps September would be better as I would be there to follow-up / be available for the interviews.

Kindest regards,

Zoltan C.

Hi Rosie,

My dad had previously opened this file and has been handling my e-mail while I was hospitalized. I will not be able to start working anywhere until the 23rd
of June and am going to Florida on the 11th to recuperate with friends.

I will review the resume and get back to you within the next couple days. Glancing through it though it looks fantastic. Thanks so much. Be back to you in the next couple days.

Mary W.

Rosie,

Thanks for your efforts, I’ve made a few suggested edits to the document. The biggest issue concerns the population that I serve. My formal job appointment is to run the Okeechobee County Health Department serving a population of around 40,000 in the Summer and up to 100,000 in the Winter season.

I am also appointed, as is reflected in the resume to act as co-chair for the health and medical functions of the regional domestic security task force which serves a population of over 3,000,000.

Otherwise, it looks great. I bow to your wisdom on any of the above…I want this to sell me, but don’t want to over-state anything to the point that it might be challenged.

Regards,

Michael H.

Dear Ilona,

I reviewed the resume and made some adjustments highlighted in yellow (the track changes for some reason didn’t work), but it looks good otherwise. I have to admit I thought it was going to be longer, I guess for all the material I provided you had a lot to work with, but I am not disappointed, not at all! Actually, at this point, write also the other resume` focusing on my pr/hospitality/restaurant skills. Since you have the credit card on file, just go ahead and kill my budget!!

Thank you,

Ombretta DiM.

Donna,

I started my new job this Tuesday and have been very busy. I printed the resume and looked it over. It looks great! I appreciate your efforts and just wanted to say thanks.

Bob N.

Ilona,

You are GOOD! Thank you so much for your hard work on this project – and patience. I will review and send the necessary responses that you request.

Rose Ann M.

Rosie,

Thank you the resume is great, You did a wonderful job. It will get the job done. Thanks again.

Vic T.

Hello Ilona,

Thank you very much. I read the resume quickly and liked what I saw. I will definitely proofread the resume carefully and return it to you, probably sometime next week. I will talk with you soon.

Regards,

John H.

Thanks, Ilona.

This looks great!

I’m going to start posting this to the online job boards IMMEDIATELY!

Bridgett B.

Donna,

I just wanted to drop you this tremendous note of THANKS! I faxed (imagine without fancy letterhead) 4 resumes to advertised positions in my newspaper today at 9am……… At 1:00 pm I recieved a cell phone call from a title agency that was impressed with my resume, credentials and business experience. I have an interview tomorrow with the manager who is looking for a person with my qualifications and enthusiasm. I appreciate your professional attention to the details of my resume and also your helpful insights as to projecting myself with confidence regarding my education and past business skills.

The cover letter was excellent and most definately got the attention of the manager to further review my resume.

THANK YOU.

Sincerely,

Cindy A.

Rosie,

I am very impressed after the first read through, Thank You! I will take a day or two to analyze, proofread the document and get back to you.

Thanks Again,

Jim R.

Rosie:

I think you did an exceptional job.

Thanks for everything. I greatly appreciate your time and effort.

Thanks again,

Pat A.

Jeanie,

Looks great! Wow!!! I have made some minor edits/additions.

What about the “2 page rule”?

Derrick V.

Hi Ilona,

The resume looks fine. Tthanks you did a great job. If you have any other advise that would also be helpful, I have applied and followed up on many jobs and not even a call….I am seeking a position out of state..if you have any thoughts to speed up this process that would be wonderful..

Thank you again.

April S.

Rosie,

Thank you for getting this out this morning and sorry for the heated e-mail. I have made some minor changes but the overall package looks excellent. I believe your work will prove to be a valuable investment in my job search.

Thank you,

Scott S.

Ilona,

You did a terrific job, especially since these fields
are highly specialized and probably somewhat
unfamiliar to you. I was wondering why you did not include my hours at Memphis State – I went ahead and added them back in unless you think I shouldn’t.

Thanks,

Anne M.

Ilona,

You’ve done an outstanding job! I might add you’re pretty smart too! So now I need to pay you the remaining balance for your work. Just send me what I need to fill out.

Thanks,

Tom C.

Ilona,

I need a huge favor…I need a copy of my receipt for all of the services that Career Resumes charged me. Thank you…I love the resume – what a difference.

Take Care.

Gayle L.

Donna,

Again, the resume is AWESOME. I have attached my corrected copy. The only correction was under SystemOne, (I was employee of the month four times).

I can’t thank you enough for the great job you’ve done on my behalf.

Steve C.

Hello Ilona:

My revisions are attached. You did an excellent job of pulling everything together for which I am very appreciative. I am very excited to say the least and look forward to receiving the revisions from you.

Warmest Regards,
Karen K.

Hi Ilona,

The resume and cover letter are fabulous. Thank you. I took a little longer than expected to review and
re-review the documents. I only have a few questions / comments that I have marked on each document. Do let me know if any of my markings are unclear.

Thanks

Jay N.

Thanks Ilona.

The resume and cover letter both look great. As suggested by you I am going to go thru’ them a few times (and sleep over it for one night) to make sure I provide all my feedback in one go.

You can expect to hear back from me by tomorrow
evening PST (after I get back from work).

Once again, Thanks for efforts

Jaideep N.

Peter,

Thanks for your support and passing the message to Jeanie .. The attached resume V2 really came together. She did an excellent job. I believe it will be a WINNER, (needs just minor clean-up). If you are happy with it than I am also and lets start the next phase.

I await your response, comments, and suggestions.

Kindest regards,

Zoltan C.

Christine,

The resume and cover letter both look great. I have no changes whatsoever, and I believe it is much better than what I had. I can’t wait to start
testing it to see what kind of reception I get.

Thanks,

Emerich E.

Hello Jane,

Thank you for the info. It is good to know that if I need any additional assistance in my job search, you are willing to help.

I loved my new resume and cover letter Ilona prepared for me. This girl has got some goooooooooood skills!!!

Thank you once again for your assistance, Jane. It was a pleasure to work with both you and Ilona.

If I have any questions or concerns, or if I need any other services from you, I will let you know.

Regards,

Anna C.

Hello Ilona,

Thank you for my documents. I really liked what saw, reaaaaaaaaaly. I am going to work on the final changes tomorrow and as soon as I am done, I will let you know.

Regards,

Anna C.

Hello Ilona,

Thank you for all your hard work. I am pleased with the result. I have attached the first proof of my resume with some corrections/questions highlighted in red. Please review. Additionally, I am also very pleased with the cover letter. I ask, if possible, for you to write an ending statement for a situation where I am applying for a position online and may not have the information to contact a hiring manager directly – I guess a more general closing statement would be appropriate.

Thank you for you attention to these matters, and I look forward to hearing back. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Regards,

Ryan B.

Kelley,

This looks pretty good to me. I’d say let’s go with it. Thank you very much for your quick turnaround. This resume certainly looks and flows better than what I’ve done and other “so-called pros” have prepared.

Hopefully, I can send some business your way.

Regards,

Jim B.

Ilona

First of all, wow! I think I gained at least 2 inches in height after reading this. Talk about standing proud. Thank you for being so thorough, it really is excellent. That means I’m nearing 6’4″ and towering over people… as if I didn’t have enough of a presence.

Greg D.

Dan:

The meeting went very well. Thank you for your support.

I guess he was more prepared than I was and offered a spot for me by addressing the reservations that I had.

So, THANK YOU again for the way you shaped my bio.

Regards

Padma N.

Thanks Dan,

I appreciate your help. The resume looks great, I’ve been getting some really great feedback from friends and colleagues. I’ve been telling everyone to call you guys. I’m sure I will get interviews once I start sending it out.

Thanks again,

Ollie P.

Ilona,

I have proof read the resume and cover letters, and will fax you some slight changes tomorrow. They look great!

Thanks!

Cynthia H.

Hi Christine,

What a nice job! Thank you for all this.

Michael R.

Ilona,

Your efforts have produced an excellent resume.

I’ve answered your questions, added a few points and made some factual corrections using red type. The factual corrections were needed due to
information I sent to you which was inaccurate.

Again, The resume is excellent. Transitioning into medical sale will be difficult but I’m going to give it a try before accepting a position in printing.

If I were to request a cover letter, how long would it take you to prepare it?

Thank you,

John R.

Peter:

I am delighted with the work Kelley Smith has done; I hope it works.

On the strength of her work how do I use you resume distribution service.

Thanks

Andrew F.

Jeanie-

Thank you very much. I am very happy with the ‘end result’. The true test will come in the upcoming months as I focus on the career search. Once again, thanks for our patience and understanding over the last few weeks. I appreciate your efforts.

Best of luck!

Nancy C.

Hi Ilona,

Just wanted to let you know they were very impressed with my resume! In fact, they’ve already asked me back for a 2nd interview! Thanks again for the great job.

Carol G.

Hi Jane,

This is just a note to tell you that I’m thrilled with Ilona’s draft of my resume. I think it will need just a bit of tinkering and then be good to go.

Thanks.

Susan T.

Peter,

I can’t thank you enough for assigning Ilona as my writer. She’s done a wonderful job and has been very easy to work with. This entire resume building process has been exceptional. Filling out the questionnaire forced me to examine what I’ve done over the years-and boosted my self-esteem in the process. I’m in a much better place now and I have you to thank.

I know a good job is on the horizon for me. Thank you for helping me see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Carol G.

Jeanie,

I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the outcome of this document.

I have made only a few changes and added the information you were asking to fill in.

Keith B.

Hi Ilona,

I reviewed the resume proof and have made changes/corrections using the Track Changes tool. As for my HR background, early in my career at Covance

My first reaction when I read it, was “Wow! I’d hire me!!” Great job on capturing my experience in a very positive way.

Carol G.

Thanks Ilona.

You did a FANTASTIC job and I’ve already recommended Career Resumes (and YOU) to a colleague of mine.

Mary B.

Hi Ilona,

I wanted to let you know that the resume looks great! I have a few changes, but probably won’t be able to get everything written up for you until this weekend. You should have my changes by Monday.

Mary B.

Peter –

I think Jeanie has done a great job with the resume. Please give me a call and we can talk about the additional services you offer.

Thanks,

Brett G.

Ilona,

The first draft needs minor revisions. I need to review tomorrow with fresh eyes. I’m impressed!

Thanks,

Pat C.

Hi Rosie,

A fantastic job. I never knew I had really accomplished so much. It shows what attitude and an independent view can do.

I’ve made some changes and highlighted them in yellow as you indicated. I went through all my projects and put them in an excel file to get values. I was shocked at the value, even when I went through to avoid duplication.

I’ve sent back the resume’. It looks great. I’ve done a lot of work through the years. 667 million less 325 million which was an estimate for Lockheed Martin facilities here still leaves 342 million dollars. Take inflation rates that vary from 1974 projects to 2005 projects and you are still left with an amazing figure of 750 million dollars of value in projects. enough of this, but I am very impressed with the resume so far.

It’s unbelievable! I never would have totaled them if the resume’ you typed hadn’t brought it to my attention.

Thanks,

Craig

Hi Rosie.

Wow – what a difference! I was pretty happy with what I’d done until I saw your work – thank you!

Thanks again for your hard work. I look forward to seeing the final draft soon. Please don’t hesitate to email or call if you need additional feedback from me.

Have a nice weekend,

Dan

Dear Ilona’

This looks great!!

Please find enclosed the corrections. FYI, under the resume portion, I made a correction to ‘actors’. This is ok, but I didn’t have the time to try to figure out how to undo this:

(Types of flights ranged from road shows to rock tours and prominent actors.)

Thanks again for your help, and it would be great to finalize this by tomorrow.

Regards,

Robert F.

Ilona,

Um, all I can say is WOW – money well spent!

I’ve made a few minor tweaks to the file, but I would call what you sent me final.

Thanks a million – it looks great!

Regards,

Steve W.

Hi Denise,

I must first say that my resume and cover letter look outstanding! I am very happy with the outcome of both documents than Dan Dorotik produced.

Now, I am interested in hearing about other services offered as you hinted to in your email, about getting the exposure I need to move up and out of my current position. Please feel free to contact me with the details at you earliest convienience.

Edward H.

Hi Ilona,

I have taken a little time in reviewing the final resume and I am very happy with the results. I appreciate the professionalism you have brought to the presentation on my somewhat complex career.

Sincerely,

Ed B.

Jeanie,

You did a nice job. I don’t know how you guys do it, but it was pretty good.

Thanks,

Jim C.

Hi Illona:

I don’t know whether to compliment or complain. For the past two months I have been cranking out your cover letter and two page resume’ (yes you are right 2 pages is fine), to Monster.com and other web job sites, and recieving no response. However, I knew I had a great cover letter and resume, and said to myself, it’s all going to happen at once.

Sure as heck, I got at least 12 phone calls this week, 4 were inquiry’s, 3 were interviews that I declined, and I now have 5 interviews scheulded between this week and next. In fact, one was so important that a regional manager had the district manager meet me in the Brooklyn Home Depot where I was working at, and I had my interview in my work clothes, a bit bizzare, because he lives in astoria queens and a long way to drive . But I think they want me pretty bad and were taking no chances.

Will keep you informed. Hope you enjoyed your holiday.

Thank you,

Frank W.

Hi Jane!

Received your e-mail this morning. I’ve left you a phone message, however I do have one question: is there a difference using your resume distribution service vs “the other guys” (ie Monster.com, careerbuilder.com…etc)?

By the way – Laura did a fantastic job on my resume and cover letter. When I saw the first draft the first thing I said was “WOW!” I’ve made only minor changes.

Thanks so much for your help!!

Marlene R.

Jane,

I wanted to let you know that Laura done a wonderful job with my resume. I start my new job this Monday.

Thanks,

Ken G.

Hi Rosie,

I received the text version and I just wanted to thank you for your time and patience. The resume is fantastic !! How you turned a simple list of past employment into a work of art, I will never know.

Thanks again.

Sincerely David R.

Donna,

I never did thank you for the work you did on the resume and the cover letter. You are very good and very patient. Thanks very much.

Donald T.

Hi Ilona,

I have reviewed and made some minor changes to my new resume (see attached). I am very happy with the results and quality of your work. I think my resume now reflects the scope and depth of my career. My career has always seemed too complex and I think you have done a wonderful job of making it into a cohesive presentation. It is so good not to see the word ‘I’ everywhere.

Edward B.

Jane,

The cover letter Jeanie prepared looks great, I have made a change in the second paragraph and have underlined. If this change is Ok, go ahead; if not please modify.

Many thanks to you and Jeanie for the talent and professional approach that has been applied to both CV and cover letter.

Don W.

Ilona,

Looks great. Heck, I’m impressed with myself (ha, ha). I made a few changes to the resume that are notated in plum. I added am additional comment from this years appraisal. I’ll let you determine if it is necessary or not. I did not make any changes to the cover letter.

Thanks-
Marcie C.

Ilona,

OK. You did a terrifc job…you are a real pro! I felt like I should learn to walk on water!

Vincent DeF.

Hello Ilona,

I have made a few changes to the rough draft of my resume. The changes are highlighted in red. Thank you for your reply to my email on February 2.

Thank you and Career Resumes for your assistance in my career change.

Sincerely,

Gwen S.

Dan,

WOW! I know writing these for a living is what you do but I had no idea it would look so good! I noticed Minacs was miss spelled. That’s all I can see.

Do I need to just let you know to write a cover letter or contact Mrs. Horton? I am very impressed and would like the cover letter as well.

Thanks!

Ed H.

Christine,

Attached is the resume with my edits. I think you did a terrific job with the resume and I like the format very much. I will follow up with you later this week regarding the cover letter.

Thanks,

Maura H.

Christine,

You really do AMAZING work. I will look it over and let you know if there is anything else.

Thank you,

Matt W.

Denise,

Just reviewed a first draft of Jeanie’s work on my resume. I wanted to let you know what an outstanding job she did. There is no doubt I will be referring others to you.

Marc K,

Hi Peter –

Several months ago I contracted with your firm to revise my resume. Donna Allen took the ball and ran with it, and did an incredible job. Her work helped me to land an interview with a top-tier firm and they just offered me a Director-level position. And for those people who are curious about the cost-benefit analysis on your services – the salary increase alone (not including bonus, etc.) is 40% greater than what I’m taking home right now.

You guys really know your industry, and Donna did a great job on my resume. Thanks again!

Andrew O.

Dear Donna,

While the Lincoln Center gig apparently did not work out, I wanted to write to you in any case, just to say how much I appreciate everything you did in getting my resume and cover letter in tip-top shape.

After having used another service just in the past two years, your insight and laser-precision use of the language and ability to make sense of my diverse background stands miles above the others.

After hooking up with you, I feel confident I’ve seen how the best of the best works! Thanks again for all of your input.

Happy Holidays,

Peter W.

Donna,

Thank you for your hard work. Please remember, I never intended for you to see those worksheets, they were the product of some very early mornings (we have four children 6 & under so no other time). After I spoke to you, I was too anxious to re-work the word.doc. So I give you an A+.

Mike H.

Peter,

I received my resume from Ilona a few days ago and just had the opportunity to review it this evening. It is INCREDIBLE. She did a wonderful job.

Thank you for matching us up. Thank you for offering the free consultation – that led me to trying out your services.

Thank you! I look fabulous on paper. I definitely will get interviews with this resume.

Happy holidays!

Alice S.

Hello Ilona,

Thank you very much, with a little tweaking it will the finest resume out there!!! Great work, I will get you the updates you need.

Have a great weekend,

Richard C.

Hi Jeanie,

You may not immediately remeber me but you did some excellent work on my resume earlier this year.

I just wanted to let you know that your work helped me a great deal and that I got the job I wanted!

Kind regards and a Merry Christmas!

Joost W.

Peter:

I’d like to thank you and Jean Oscarson for creating an outstanding resume for me. After a single offering of my new resume I was offered the type of position I was seeking.

Roger G.

Hello Jeanie and Denise,

RE The Resulting Doc and Your Firm (Denise) was right. Jeanie is/was able to do *everything* needed to get my resume to be a (much, much, much) better marketing document; something I knew I needed during my conversation with Denise. In fact, I found, and find, myself thinking every time I read my own resume that if I could just write that well, that is EXACTLY what I would want to convey about what happened and what it means to the person reading the resume. Plus ‘less-than-strong’ areas look a lot better. And the points being brought out now emphasize and present what needs to be brought out (ie, as a marketing doc to get the meeting and cut through the clutter) – I recognize this because I often am in the position of plowing through piles of resumes as the person needing to hire someone.

It would be a pleasure to be a reference (!) and I will pass on your firm and services to others who need it.

Thanks very much so far…

Best regards,

Kirk D.

Dan,

Wowza. It looks fantastic. I actually like the format you have, sort of a hybrid between straight reverse-chronological and cross-pollinated with functional specialization.

If we expand the summary, will it be too wordy and thus too lenghty for the reader to plow through?

Sandy M.

Donna,

I wanted to drop you a quick note to say THANK YOU for your help. I just got the first “hit” on my new resume, within 24 hours of sending out. I
can’t say that’s ever happened before. Thanks!

Andrew O.

Ilona,

Hi there,

I’m very pleased with this draft…..as many asked before me, is that really me??? I like the info, format, font, and excerpt. I’ve reviewed and
adjusted as much as I can. See attached….let me know if you can ascertain correctly. Also, see below in caps for answers to your questions.

Thanks,
Meloney S.

Rosie,

I want to thank you for the wonderful finished resume I received from you after final editing. I am very impressed with end product and look forward to it achieving its desired result.

I am interested in a better method of distribution. Peter mentioned this in an earlier email as well. I was wondering if you might forward this email with a request that Peter contact me so options can be developed.

Thanks and once again, thank you for developing a wonderful resume.

William M. (Mark) F.

Jeanie:

As I always say good is good and then there’s excellent and that your skills truly are. It looks great to me. I’ll have Mark Cooper review our final product.

Again I thank you for your effort and time I will be referring you consistently in the future when I return to the work force.

Sincerely,

John F.

Hi Ilona,

I’ve looked it over and you have done a fantastic job on it. Thank you so much for taking the time in creating such a wonderful resume…it truly reflects who I am. Now there are a couple of minor changes to the resume, but you’ll be able to see them through the track changes. The attachment is presented for you to do the minor corrections. I look forward to seeing the final draft again thank you for your service. Take care.

Sincerely,

Jackie C.

Hi Donna–

I received everything and am reviewing it all. I will circle back to you by end of day Friday to give you my edits. My first impression is oh my god!

Many Thanks.

Donna L.

Hi Ilona,

I made a minor change myself but do not worry. It was exellent job. Everyone I showed this was so impressed with the job. It presicely discribes me…..

I want to say many thank you’s. At first i was scared because it is not easy to dish out 500 plus dollars in a two page paper, but it was all woth it…can i ask you a question, do you think I should be looking for a job now or wait until Thankgiving is over? Or does it really matter….

Anyway you are verrrrryyyyy gifted individual and may the good lord keep safe…..

Have a great holiday.

Thank you,

Christine S.

Hi Ilona,

Sorry it’s taken me sometime to persue everything and get back to you. I feel really good about the revamp you did for my resume. I felt like I was in that
awkward place between right our of school/entry level and growing professional and think you did good with the look and feel of both the resume and cover letter to portray a more sophisticated professional.

Claudia C.

Hi Ilona,

I appreciate the effort that you have put in to write a resume for me.

Thank you for your support.

As pleased as I am with the resume, I would like your services for a cover letter as well.

Regards,

Robert C.

Ilona:

Thank you for the draft resume. I am pleased with the creative style used in capturing my professional life. Truly, you are a gifted writer.

I have proof-read the resume and all is in order except for: the word “claims and made”. The word is “claims-made” policies.

You are correct, I am not interested in storage of the document. I Look forward to receipt of the finalized version of the resume.

Thanks,

Martin M.

Peter,

I wanted to tell you what a great job Kelley Smith did on rewriting my resume. It might be worth giving you a bit of history as to how I reached the point of looking for help on my resume.

I decided to search Google one day for resume writing services and came across Career-Resumes.com. I submitted my resume and was called the next day by Jane Quick to give me a critique of my current resume as well as a quote to reconstruct my resume. I have to tell you that while I was impressed with Jane, the quote seemed like it was a lot to pay for a service that on the surface might or might not be beneficial to my job search.

I can tell you that Kelley did a great job and in the end I feel as if the value I received was far greater than what I paid (but please don’t take that as an approval to bill me more!). I have already gotten very positive comments from a couple of recruiters and other professionals that I have shared my resume with. I had never gotten comments before except for asking why I changed jobs so frequently during a short period.

I would recommend this service to anyone I know who is trying to market themselves for other employment opportunities and I would especially recommend Kelley. She really took my thoughts and articulated them much better than I could have imagined.

I just thought you would want to know when someone in your organization does an outstanding job.

Patrick M.

Peter,

I have reduced my concerns to a single complaint: I am not a good one to toot my own horn. Try resolving this when I tell you that I own two
pipe organs, probably over 1,000 horns!

The cover letter and resume done by Sherri Morgan seem powerful. They capture my achievements and do so without exaggeration. I can identify my current and past efforts in the documents. So, well done.

I passed some minor suggestions back to Sherri and I would like to move forward.

One item we spoke of was a bio for obtaining director positions. I would like to explore others.

Craig S.

Peter,

Jeanie did a great job!

I’d like to take you up on resume storage and a cover letter please.

How shall we precede?

Jason S.

Hi Christine

Thought I would end your week on a happy note! I just did the email campaign and web posting with Yaron and he is very very happy with his resume and the service we have provided. He said he is referring some of his senior colleagues to me to have their resume done. I will send them your way if they do buy!

Have a great weekend!

Jane Q.

Ilona,

I have read and proof read both attached documents. You have done an outstanding job and I am extremely pleased. There are a few changes such as changing the font to Garamond, centering my name and information at the top of the page and I am requesting that the line under my name for all pages be removed. All changes and questions noted have been highlighted and answered. Please let me know if there are any questions or you need further assistance.

Again, thanks so much!

Sandy M.R.

Hi, Ilona,

I’ve given the resume you’ve sent a cursory review, and will be sending you changes. I think it’s much better than my old version, so thank you for that!

David A.

Jeanie,

This resume looks great.

I have made some minor changes. I numbered the top list indicating my order of preference for those catch phrases, I do not want them numbered. My number is a suggestion and if you have any thoughts please incorporate yours. You are the expert here. I have made a few suggestions but if you don’t agree, then go with your thoughts.

At this point I do not need a cover letter. Actually I need information on services and costs that the company provides after the resume is complete. I did speak with Peter some time ago about these but have since forgot most of that conversation. If you do not have that information then please let me know who does. I appreciate the help.

Michael R.

Jeanie,

I made a few changes but make sure you got them and we are good to go.

Thanks for the help. Great work!

Sincerely,

Dave G.

Hi Ilona,

I finally had my interview with F. Lee Bailey. The feedback was quite favorable. Mr. Bailey was impressed with the resume. I have to take a test
after an online course. I have begun and it is going well. If I do well on the remainder of the testing I will have a second and final interview.

In the meantime I had another interview with a financial services company and am pretty certain I will be offered a position tomorrow, with the
understanding that if the VP position with Bailey becomes a reality, taking the position will be fine with the other company.

Thanks again for a wonderful job.

Clearly your efforts were a good investment in my future. I will be happy to write a testimonial if it would be of help.

Sincerely,

Dan G.

Good Afternoon Ilona;

My apologies for the delay in getting this back to you. It seems that I went to bed last night and when I woke up this morning, half the year had gone by.

Anyhow, I have attached my resume and have notated comments on the document itself. It looks really good, I will have to hire myself! Thank you.

There were also several questions that you had asked me about in your initial email. I have responded to them within your email that I have attached below.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

The cover letter looks great!

Thank you again for all your help!

Could you provide me with a current price listing of the other services you offer?

Thanks,

Jeff D.

Denise,

Kelley Smith completed my resume and I really like the job that she did. You mentioned that you might be able to assist with next steps in a career search. Would you be available to discuss this with me sometime on Tuesday, next week?

Let me know. I attached my new resume, just in case you had not seen it yet.

Best regards,

Ted D.

Hi, Ilona.

Got the resume, but my internet server was down yesterday. Thank you for all of your hard work. …… ……..

I have enjoyed working with you!

Mary L.

Ilona,

First, thank you for doing such a great job.

As I read over what you’ve prepared, I realize that I wouldn’t have been able to do this on my own. I’ve made notes onto the document itself. As well I’ve made some notes for clarification.

Tracy H.

Hi Ilona,

I have reviewed the resume and cover letter and they are great. I have made suggested changes in red and in green are statements that I am not 100% sold on.

Thanks again, you are a wonderful writer.

I will call you at 8:00 am my time and11:00 am your time to review.

Shelly D.

Thanks Rosie,

The resume looks great. It is exciting to see all of my experience and qualifications presented in such a striking and attractive package.

Steve G.

Dear Donna –

I can’t thank you enough for your input and regardless of how this opportunity works out, I will always appreciate your kindness and support.

Warmest Regards,

Peter W.

Hi Jane,

I was very happy with the resume Donna Allen put together for me. She didn’t have much to work with and ended up doing a great job.

I’m writing you today because I would like to have Career Resumes provide me with a cover letter and then, in the future, possibly take advantage of the other resources you offer.

Please feel free to contact me.

Thank you.

Patty K.

Ilona,

You’ve done a great job on my resume.

Here are my corrections and edit. I hope I didn’t make a mess of the document.

Also, I am going to Japan on Nov. 4th for two weeks. I will be back on the 17th. I’m not sure what are time frame is but I don’t imagine I’ll have any thing to add after this go through. But let me know what the next step is.

Thanks H.

Tracy

Hi, Ilona.

I received the resume this morning. I have read it and really like the format. I appreciate all of your hard work.

Mary H.

Ilona,

Thanks for all your help – and the encouragement. I’m really glad I got a hold of you – you’ve given me a great starting point! Thanks again,

Jason W.

Ilona,

I’ve taken a quick look at the documents and they look really good. I’ve answered some of your questions in the body of the resume and asked a couple of questions as well. I thought that I had done a pretty good job writing my own resume but what you’ve done is 100 times better. I guess that’s why you do it for a living!

Thanks,

Rick A.

Hi

Jeanie did a fine job on my CV and it certainly looks
a lot better now. Thank you for your assistance.

Best regards,
Erik K.

Ilona,

Thanks for resume. I really like it. I made a couple small changes and tracked them. Please take a look and see that you think they make sense. ………..
Generally, I am really happy with it. Thanks again. ………..

Joe L.

Hi Peter,

The resume that Dan wrote worked. I posted it on Dice on Monday night and Tuesday morning received a call from a consultant firm. they hired me for a long term project, at higher then my normal billable rate, plus expenses. I could not believe that the resume worked in less then 12 hours. I am recommending you all around, so I expect you will be getting some calls.

Thank you,

Chris Howell

Ilona,

You did a great job-thanks! I feel much better about myself. I made some changes in a couple of lines. I moved one line from E.F. Mahon up to Motophoto. My rambling on the phone must have been confusing. I answered the questions. Most of the changes are highlighted or have strikethrough. This is a huge relief.

Thank you so much for your help. I look forward to
seeing the final.

Get some rest!!!

Dan G.

Hi Dan,

I am not sure if you received this when I sent it to you on Oct 8. Anyway, could you please make these changes and forward the changed resume to me. I made the changes on my copy. I then posted it on Dice and the next day I landed a long term contract for big money. The recruiter for the consulting company that hired me said that this is the easiest, most professional resume he has ever seen.

Thank you,

Chris H.

Dear Ilona:

After carefully reading my new and improved resume, I feel that it was written very professional and at the same time, captures my work expereince
beautifully.

I want to thank you for all your help in this process.

Thanks for eveything and I will keep you in my address book for future
recomendations and writting services.

Sincerely,

Manuel M.

Good Morning Ilona,

Everything looks great! I have one question; I have always heard that your resume should be one page is there any truth to that?

Other than that I am very happy with the resume. Thank you again it has been great working with you.

Regards,

Steve M.

Denise,

Jeanie and I have pretty much finished the resume, it looks about 100 times better than my original. I was curious about what types of resume distribution services you offer that you mentioned in your earlier email.

I would like to know more about this service.

Please either call me or email me with some specifics on this.

Thanks in advance for your help.

John M.

Thank you Ilona.

It looks great. I made the changes they are high lighted in red. I look forward to seeing the final resume.

Thanks again,

Steve M.

Ilona,

It looks wonderful. You did a fantastic job.

Thank you very much.

Linda B.

Hello Donna,

I have recieved the resume and cover letter, which I am in the process of reviewing and making just a few corrections. All in all, I have to say I’m very impressed with the resume in general! I’d hire me. 🙂

Sean S.

Ilona

Thanks! So far you are my favorite resume writer (don’t let my aunt who wrote one when I was trying to get a summer job in high school hear about
this). If I get the job I want with this one I am going to write not just an outstanding review but also I will be completely vindicated with my “doubting thomas” friends and will make the job hunting fools use you folks!

Thanks again for your help.

Steve F.

Donna,

You are an artist!

Upon reading your draft this morning my wife observed that you have transformed me into the “car god.” I will proof the document and return it today. There may be a question or two that requires us to have a brief telephone conversation.

Again, Thank you for your professionalism.

Best Regards,

Mike A.

Hello Ilona,

I have reviewed the resume and it looked really good. Its all about word smithing isnt it! I have used the tracking function to make the changes and attached it to this document. I didn;t have any trouble with the formatting so hopefully it comes back to you in one piece as well.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Nichole A.

Hi Donna,

It looks and sounds amazing! Thank you so much!

At first glance, I didn’t notice a couple of minor things that need to be changed. I will review it more closely this week and get back to you on Monday. (I’m going out of town and Monday is the soonest I can get back to you.)

Thanks again.

Patty K.

Donna,

You are a pleasure to work with. Thank you for taking such excellent care of my paper work. Great meeting today. We should be close. Look forward to reading the 2 C/L options , then seeing the near final draft. You are the BEST!

Tim H.

P.S. (to Jane – she is very good!)

Hi Jeanie:

Attached is your draft of my resume that includes my comments. I just named it versions 1.0 so that I won’t confuse documents. I think it is a great improvement. In fact, I found a job on Monster.com this morning that I think is a perfect match for my background and skills.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could edit my opening summary to focus on this position.

Again, thanks for the great work. Hopefully, it will help me secure an interview for this position.

Mary Ann M.

Hello Christine,

Please see enclosed suggested resume revisions for your review. I was very pleased with the draft resume in which my professional experience is presented in a concise manner.

If you would please let me know when I can expect the final version. I am very anxious to distribute to prospective employers.

Thank you for your help in this matter.

Sincerely,

Nat B.

Hi Jeanie,

I have one small change at the very end of page Once that change is made am I free to use the material?

I am very pleased with your work and will recommend to people that they use your services.

Thank You,

Rich M.

Ilona,

I thank you for all of your help. Other than the comments above, the draft looks fine. I still can’t believe the difference you made in my resume. You are truly amazing.

Phillip

Ilona,

Is this me? I can’t believe the difference between what I first sent your company and this version. I actually had to put it down after reading the first paragraph I was so embarassed.

Thank you,

Phillip M.

Ilona,

Thank you for your expertise and the resume looks
great.

Ian P.

Hi Donna!

I received your e-mail and just at first glance, my resume looks amazing! Thanks so much for your hard work. I will review it carefully and let you know if there is anything I want you to add.

Thanks again,
Harriet K.

Ilona,

Awesome!!

OK now we can text convert it… now what exactly does that do in application to sending out my resume?

Michelle L.

Hi Jeanie,

The new resume looks great! I am reviewing it now and will have a few edits. I will e-mail you my edits in the morning.

Best Regards,

Rich M.

Jean —

Nice work. I’ve attached a Word doc with a few revisions and comments.

Vance K.

Hi Jean:

Thanks–this is good stuff. Most of it is right on the money (or darn close ). Yes, I would like a draft/template built for use in a cover letter.

Thanks again.

Catherine D.

Hi Jean,

I am just starting my recruiting and I have had excellent response to the resume you prepared for me. I think now it’s time to add a cover letter. Please let me know if you can take care of for me.

Regards,

Jim H.

Ms. St. Julian,

I appreciate all of your help. I was offered a new job on yesterday with Defense Intelligence Agency. My new resume helped me get noticed. Thanks!

Solina J.

Ilona,

The process was alot quicker for my reviews, then expected. Please note the additions in red are only suggestion of information you could add… not necessary changes.

Thank you so very much, you are doing an awesome job.

Let me know,

Michelle L.

You got it, Donna.

I like the document, I will review it carefully tomorrow morning, but on my first reading you really got it.

Well, I am really positively surprised with your speed and work.

Great job thanks!

Julio G.

Jane,

Thanks to you and Rosie! A quick glance of the resume and it looks great. I may request some minor change in the “highlights”. I look forward to start using it right away. I’m sure it will help in my search.

I’ll be in touch next week.

Bill M.

Ilona,

I have reviewed the resume draft and filled in where info was needed. I am very pleased with the draft. I appreciate all your hard work. I will await to see if you have any more refinements. If you need to please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks Again,

Shane R.

Peter,

Thank you . I apologize for being so late in getting back to you. Christine did a wonderful job on my resume.

Heck I’d hire me.

David M.

Ilona,

Hi, this is David Orr you wrote my resume for me this summer. I just wanted to write you an e-mail to thank you again for doing such a wonderful job with it. I have been flooded with job offers and interviews. I would recommend to anyone having you assist them with their resume etc.

Again thank you! you’ve really helped me showcase my business talents.

David

Hi Donna,

I am so impressed with this draft! I hate that I waisted $300 with another company on my first go around. I am almost in tears I have not seen fresh organized verbage like this in years. I knew it would take some one professional to do this. I have worked corporate america and know what the standards are. Thanks you so much for spending quality time on my resume.

It reads like it’s specific to me. It’s not cookie cutter or a lot of useless verbage. I like the draft. I can’t think of anything that needs to be changed or added, let me know where we go from here. How much for a cover letter? I would like to speak with you by phone how can I reach you?

Thanks Again!

Carolyn S.

Ilona,

By the way, I’m looking forward to what this resume can do. From what I can tell, you did a tremendous job.

Rich W.

Donna,

Wow I think you hit a home run, everything seems to be done perfect.

Lee R.

Peter,

Ilona did a very nice job for me. I will certainly keep you in mind in regards to referrals.

Thanks,

Matthew C.

Ilona,

WOW!! This looks great. I can only see one correction which is on the location of my current position, should be Ft. Pierce. Other than that I am
very pleased.

You did an excellent job.

Thank you very much.

Henry T.

Hi Rosie,

I am very pleased with the format and only identified some minor changes to the proof which is attached. I would like for you to prepare a cover letter based on what I have seen from the reorganization of my resume. What is the process to go forward? I have a specific job in mind that I can provide lectronically that I would like this letter taylor’d too.

Thanks Again,

Robert D.

Rosie,

You did a fantastic job! You are a very talented and skilled writer. I am very pleased that I made the decision to have you rewrite my resume. I’m sure that it will have a dramatic effect on my success in seeking new opportunities.

William P.

Rosie,

Who is this guy? I would definitely like to interview him myself. Oh, you mean that’s me! Wow I had no idea I was so impressive!

If the lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client, what about the person who writes his own resume!

Thanks Rosie, I love your work!

Mark F.

Hi Donna,

Sorry to take so long to get back to you. I think the resume is done. I love it. I’m getting rave reviews from everyone who sees it.

Thank you so much for everything!

Regards,

Liza P.

Hi Christine,

First I’d like to say you did a really fine job with my resume. It looks good. There were a couple items on the resume that I had questions about.

One other thing (I’m not sure if it is important) is my minor in French. I would like to get a position overseas and wonder if this in any way helps.

Thank you.

Dave M.

Hi Christine

Thanks for the resume. I have read it once already and it looks great and flows well. I will read it again for spelling etc. before i return to you …hopefully by COB tomorrow. I do not see significant changes right now.

I would like to wait on the cover letter for a while. Can I do that? How much is the cover letter?

Talk to you soon.

Evette F.

Ilona,

Great job! I made a few minor error corrections.

Matthew C.

Hi Ilona,

So far any changes that need to be made are minor and, as you suggested, I can just make them myself. I think it came out great and I’ve gotten very positive feedback!

Thanks for all your work and patience!!

Please let me know if there is anything else I need to do.

Peggy D.

Jane,

I just wanted to let you know that I have had outstanding success with my new resume. After only 25 days of using the new resume that Kelley Smith wrote, I secured a new position with the top company in my profession with a large increase in salary. Thanks for making this possible for me and my family.

Gregg B.

Donna,

Just in time …. I don’t know how much longer I can stand my current job so now that I have a beautiful resume I can concentrate on getting out of there.

mille mercis for all of your hard work.

Nancy D.

Hi Ilona,

Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. The cover letter and resume look great. After reading them I thought ‘who is this!”.

There will be a few VERY minor changes.
Right now there are just 2 –

1. remove the year I graduated from college
2. In the cover letter please change ‘ethics’ to ‘ethic’.

I still need to do some more verification on the job descriptions.

Again I apologizefor the delay, it was a very busy week!!

Thanks,
Peggy D.

Hi Jeanie,

Have reviewed it now several times, catching something else each time I went through it. Looks great. A couple times I had to look at the top of the Resume to make sure it was mine!

The changes are tracked and ready for your review. If you have any questions, you may either call me on my cell phone or just send me an email.

Thanks for your help. Even though it’s not yet finalized, it is definitely an improvement already.

Jimmy H.

Hello Ilona;

I received the draft of my resume and I have to say you certainly did make a silk purse out of a sows ear!!!! It is a world of difference from the “resume” I had prepared myself. I must say again I am very pleased with the document so far and look forward to the phone ringing off the hook for interviews.

Regards
Peter H.

PS The formatting of the document came out perfect when printed…..excellent job

Ilona,

Thank you for your hard work, this looks and sounds great. Here are your answers

I think that should do it, and if you ever get to Atlanta lets have dinner….

Thanks,

Joe

Hi Ilona,

thank you for your email. the resume and I think it’s great.

……

Thanks again for your assistance.

Regards,

Jacqueline C.

Hi Jean:

I have the draft. It is very, very well done. Format and style are acceptable. I’m on the road today and tomorrow (Wed/Thurs) and will not be able to provide you with any changes or additions to the content before Friday sometime.

Based upon my first “read through” , I don’t foresee many re-writes, if any.

Thank you… GREAT JOB…

I’ll get back to you on Friday.

Larry W.

Donna,

The resume looks great-need to go thru it very carefully but I don’t foresee many changes. I will get the dates for you in terms of my promotions.

You have done a fabulous job!!
