Every word has value.

“I’ve got to tell you, I like the career portfolio [CV, CV addendum, and cover letter] a lot. I’m pleased with all of it. I like the structure. I like the way you broke the information up and used bullets, and I like your wording. The CV has impact from the first page. And I can see you really did your homework. I don’t know how you did it, but you worked it! Every word has value. Trying to do it myself was a fool’s errand.

The cover letter is also a really, really helpful tool that I will be able to build on for future applications. It sets out a structure and lets me know how and where to add information for different job applications.

And I already got great feedback from the retained recruiter. You did everything I needed and I’m in a really good place.”

I’m changing how I think about myself so that I’m now thinking and talking about my value and the impact that I’ve had. The résumé was excellent and I’m excited.”

I wish I had met you years earlier.

“​Thanks for doing the résumé​. It really tells the story, which is a difficult thing because my path isn’t linear; it’s very broad. But it all rings true to me. Overall, it’s exactly what I had hoped it would be. And I’ve told many people I couldn’t have done it that way. I wouldn’t even have thought of doing it that way. I’ve been telling folks that I wish I had met you years earlier.”
