2nd Review! "Brenda has been a great help with my job search process. Her professional and clear guidance had made a difference on how I approach each company that I apply for; from advice and assistance on tailoring the resume and cover letter to the job posting to proofreading and providing key feedback and tips. She has been and continues to be very supportive throughout the process."
Administrative Assistant (Finance: Banking), Ontario
"I can’t thank Brenda enough for everything she did for me. Her knowledge and first-class attention to details completely transformed my outdated resume and cover letter. Her smarts of the industry though are so much more diverse. Brenda’s very easy to talk to and so engaging with you. She had many ideas beyond what she was helping me with that would just add to what we were already building together. Brenda knows all the right job sites. She helped guide me not only to the right person, but showed me how to professionally engage with that person. Brenda knows how to fast track things so you are going straight to where you need to be. I’m not very articulate so all I can say is 1000 thanks Brenda. I had a new job two days after sending out my new personalized and job specific resume and cover letter. I couldn’t be happier."

"I reached out to Brenda to work on my resume. She did great work revamping my resume in such short-time notice. I enjoyed her session and working together to understand her feedback."
Administrative Assistant, Quebec
"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. As well as changing things around, Brenda gives great insights as to how recruiters view resumes and cover letters, as well as setting you up with the know-how to tailor each resume to the job you are applying for. After all of that, I think the thing that has stood out to me the most, is the after care. Brenda sends out regular communications and has reached out to me to check in and see how things are going with my job searches. It is a level of client care that a lot of people neglect but Brenda goes above and beyond to let her clients know that she is there to help whenever they need. You can't ask for more than that!"
