I started a dream job as a marketing writer – my new commute is 10 minutes and I get to bring my dog to work every day. None of this would have happened without all Dana did to create my resume, cover letters, and LinkedIn. I scored many interviews and got a lot of interest from recruiters. I patiently waited for the best opportunity and it finally happened. I’ve been in my job a year and I love it.

Deb S., Marketing

I was expecting to receive a well-written letter that brings out my best qualities, but this is truly exceptional. I’m so impressed with the impact of how what I’ve done and what I have to offer leaps off the page. I don’t know how to thank you.

I just accepted a job for $20K more a year. The recruiter told me, “Your resume is perfect.” Thank you so much for your insight and writing talents, and most importantly, turning my simple resume to an unbelievably professional and high-level document. To be in my 50s and to be looking at long term job safety at my new company, is priceless.
