CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

I wasn’t satisfied with how I presented myself in resumes or cover letters and struggled to create an application reflecting myself objectively. After a few rejections for positions I wanted, I knew it was time for a professional opinion on my writing style. Thanks to Judy’s experience and up-to-date insight in HR, I was able to land the first interview, and more importantly my first full-time job in digital marketing.


Her focus to detail and constructive criticism are what changed my application from less than stellar to stand out applicant. Judy gave me the confidence to execute a resume and cover letter I’m very proud of, summarizing why and how I am the best candidate for the position. If you’re looking for someone to assist with improving your interview and writing skills, I can highly recommend Judy’s services to anyone!

For a long time, I thought I had a decent understanding of what a good resume would look like. However, a lot has changed since that time; it has become more essential for me to clearly set myself apart in a professional setting, and my resume was the first step in doing so. With Judy’s professional and current HR perspective, my resume clearly and concisely reflects who I am, and what makes me a strong candidate for positions in my field of interest. 


I appreciated how much time Judy put into our one-on-one conversations, going into detail and providing constructive criticism. Rather than telling me what to write or change, she guided me by asking specific and difficult questions, giving me the opportunity to know exactly how I wanted to portray my professional experiences through my resume. Thanks to Judy, I am very confident with my current resume and feel I have successfully represented myself to acquire interviews and advance to the next steps. I would highly recommend Judy and her services, as she offers a fresh and experienced opinion, and makes sure you’re on your own path to success in the workplace with your resume and cover letters.

I've known Judy for over 5 years - I first had the opportunity to work with Judy at a previous company when I hired her as a consultant to help design and develop HR programs. Judy was a true partner with my team, listening to our needs and proposing solutions that fit the company's culture. It's been great to keep in touch with her over the years, and I still seek out her advice.
