Dana did an absolutely amazing job. My resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile needed a serious makeover. Dana truly went above and beyond. From our initial call, through the very last edit, I knew I had made a great choice in working with Brooklyn Resume Studio and would gladly do so again.
John M, Entertainment
Dana was great to work with. Providing years of experience as a recruiter was invaluable in putting together a very comprehensive and compact resume. She was also very easy to work with, when submitting changes or asking for advice. The process does take some time, but it’s clear that there’s a ton of focus on each individual piece. Well worth the investment.
Louis O, Marketing & Advertising
Dana was fantastic! She responded quickly to my emails and her phone consultation was direct yet also personable – she asked the right questions about my career and was also easy to talk to. The work she did for my CV and cover letter was fantastic. She took a 9 page disorganized CV to an easily digestible 6 pages with fantastic formatting. She worked with several revisions of my CV and cover letter with ease. Would highly recommend!
Michael S, Medicine
At the close of a major project with my biotech firm, I decided it was time to maximize and diversify my experience after 10 years of internal succession within my company. After finding Dana’s resume writing platform (Brooklyn Resume) I literally screamed at my desk. The layout and professionalism was just what I had hoped for. With an aggressive timeline Dana was able to far exceed my expectations and tailored my Resume/LinkedIn package for an international market. I’m now confident to apply for positions that in the past, I may have thought were out of reach.
Tomeka F, Biotech
I just wanted to say thank you for all your help on revamping my resume. As soon as the resume, LinkedIn profile, and cover letter were made, I received a number of call backs. I think the total count was 12 phone interviews and 5 in-person. I ended up taking an opportunity because of your work! Your work was exceptional, and it gave me results that was more than I imagined.
Paul S, Financial Services
Great experience overall. I’m actually excited to start applying for jobs (file that under – things I never expected to hear myself say)! Dana took my documents from student/amateur status to professional. I honestly didn’t think it was possible. I had put off hiring someone for a long time thinking, “I have no experience, what could they possibly add?” She answered that question with ease.
Andrew W, Graphic Designer, NY
I’ve never been a believer in blind-applying to a company with no contacts. I’ve tried it in the past and it’s never worked. Since you redid my resume, I started blind applying and I got tons of phone interviews! One said she picked my resume out of a stack of 400. Today I got offered a job and I’m so excited. Thank you so, so much for your help. It was a great career investment to work with you.
M.J., Program Manager, NY
Thank you for all of your help, you did an amazing job on my resume!!! I start next week with a commercial engineering firm… It’s exactly what I was looking for – a step in the next direction.
Demetra M, Engineer, NY
Just wanted to pat you on the back. Thanks to your excellent work on the resume, things are heating up for me. First interview is Monday!
Kurt, Chief Information Security Officer, NY
Dana – Just a quick note to say thanks very much for masterfully improving my resume, and assisting me with the development of my professional brand. I grew confident right away from our first conversation that you were the person that could help me with my resume. You have done an excellent job at listening to my wants and needs and transferring that into a product that I had envisioned. What you have been able to do for me was amazing and I was able to reap the benefits of your work almost instantaneously.
If you want to have the best resume and have top shelf professional branding than reach out to Dana. Her work is second to none and I am sure you will feel the same way that I do once you see the final product.”
Kareem J, Data Center Architect, NY
I started sending out my resume two weeks ago, and so far I have had three interviews. I hope to have something soon, so thank you very much!
JB, Education Administrator, NY
It was such an eye-opening experience to work with you! You were able to understand what my resume was saying to recruiters, and help me highlight what I wanted it to communicate. I loved that you were direct, honest, detailed, and incredibly efficient. I am currently in the interview process for a job at a global architecture firm, and I don’t think I would have even gotten a call back without your assistance!
Danielle E, Designer, Project Manager, NY
Great work. I got call backs within two weeks, and my new job is six figures now.
KL, Sales & Marketing, NY
I had used a resume writing service in the past and was somewhat pleased with the results; However after reviewing the package (cover letter, resume, and Linkedin update) that Dana provided, there was no comparison. Dana provided me a package that was beautifully composed and written in a crisp clean contemporary fashion that speaks to the current marketplace. Dana was a delight to work with and went beyond only offering her writing skills, but offered great job search/interviewing advice that has been invaluable. I most definitely will be returning to Dana for my next update!
Darrin O, Fashion, Operations Manager, CA
With your help I feel much more comfortable sending out my resume. Your suggestions and formatting made all the difference.
Leslie P, Non-Profit Administrator, NYC
Dana was an absolute pleasure to work with. I was in the midst of a life and career change when I found Dana and asked her to help me craft a new resume. Dana’s prior professional experience in HR, her creativity, ability to really listen and give thoughtful expression to my skills gave me the confidence (and gorgeous resume!) to go forth and conquer! I am just beginning my job search, and am thrilled with my new resume and professional profile
Kate M, Culinary Entrepreneur, Digital Media Manager, PA
Dana quickly, succinctly and beautifully reworked my resume. It now reflects my skill set in a modern, clean professional way. She was adept at phrasing my responsiblities and my core skills so that they are easy to read and stand out quite effectively. I would highly recommend her.
Barbara D, Digital Media Executive, NY
One of Dana’s obvious strengths is her ability to listen to what you’re saying and translate your experience and skills into a cohesive personal brand that really comes through in the resume. With attention to detail, timely follow up and turnaround, and professionalism, Dana helped me update and transform my resume, web site bio and LinkedIn presence so they were consistent, and more importantly, effective. Her experience working with high-level career professionals proved valuable in understanding what elements would make my resume truly stand out in the market. Top Qualities: Expert, Good Value, On Time
Cynthia S, Sr. Art Director, MA
Dana is the overall package of professionalism and solid execution. She diligently worked with me despite my crazy schedule to get the final products in a quick turn around time that didn’t sacrifice quality. My success story? Not too long after our first edit, I submitted my new resume to a company that eventually became a new freelance gig! The confidence in my own skills and experience on paper would have been void if it hadn’t been for Dana. I will recommend her to colleagues and anyone else willing to take one step closer to success.
Melissa E, Writer, NYC
Since you worked on my resume, I was recently offered and accepted a position with the company whose job description that I sent to you as an example! I was also asked to interview for another technical sales position. I am very glad that I contacted you about my resume and feel that the changes that you made were critical in getting the attention of the recruiter and hiring manager.
Robin S, Sales, NYC
Dana put together for me a terrific Infographic and Cover Page! They both are professional looking and perfectly matched to my type of business. I found her to be very courteous, cheerful and inspirational and I definitely recommend her!
Amanda B, Floral Designer, NYC
I ended following your advice after we spoke on the phone, and accepted the job a few days later… After speaking with you I was better able to understand my value. I really want to thank you again for the time you took to talk to me. You really did have a helping hand in molding my career and making it’s path for future growth solid.
Marie, User Experience Designer, NYC
I haven’t used a resume for 13 years – so I had no idea where to begin. Dana did an amazing job not only bringing it up to date, but making it look clean and professional. I’m anxious to use it and start my new career!
Shana B, Project Manager, NYC
Dana is a rare talent. She is a listener who is able to gather information and present it strategically and professionally. Her manner is agreeable and her work is exemplary. I highly recommend her!
Emerald L, Freelance Writer & Editor, NYC
Dana has impressed me with her dedication, professionalism, and work ethic. But what I like the most about her, is her ability to listen and truly care about her clients and their needs. I appreciate the opportunity to recommend Dana.
Felicia R, Non-Profit Professional, NYC
Dana was great – and talk about fast turn around! My new resume looks great, and perhaps even more, the experience of working with Dana (the conversation I had with her before and the new layout I now have) really helped to focus me in terms of my job search. I think I came out of the process with a clearer sense of what I have to offer. Thanks!
Jeni M, Playwright & Artistic Director, NYC
