"I can't speak highly enough of Brenda! She completely revamped my resume, making it much more effective and appealing. Her service is very personal and tailored exactly to the needs of the client.

Professional, effective, caring, and easy to communicate. Brenda has exceptional experience and in-depth knowledge of the job market, what employers are looking for, and what you should prioritize to get your career in order. But she does not stop there and keeps up to date with all the latest trends and statistics, giving her clients the edge. Working with Brenda was one of the most impactful decisions I've made since moving to Canada. I was struggling with my approach to re-enter the job market and did not know where to start. From the first session, Brenda gave me precise guidance and direction which put my mind at ease and allowed me to focus on my priorities. Brenda has specific recommendations on how to format your CV, Resume, Cover Letter, and References, and how to prepare for interviews which puts an end to your confusion due to contradictory views on the internet. I believe that's the real value you get from the sessions with her. Brenda is very dynamic and fun to work with and each session is full of information and useful insights. She is quite diligent and has a legendary commitment to her clients, making sure to follow up with you and your progress which contributes to establishing trust and good communication. I can't recommend her enough and I deeply appreciate her help.
