From a university professor and department chairman:
Thank you for doing an outstanding job in editing __________' s thesis. That is exactly what I'm looking for in what I perceive as professional writing. There is a remarkable difference between "before" and "after" in the quality of the product. I will be making additional referrals to you concerning editing for all of my Ed.S. candidates' thesis studies.

From a writer-editor with an internationally known corporation, following my transcription from audio of his interview with the company's CEO:
Thanks, Jim. You did a great job. If you need a reference in the future, do not hesitate to give my name and number to potential customers.

From an instructor at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. I edited and final-formatted a student's safety manual in APA style before it went to the instructor:
[RM's] Safety Program [was] the best one, and I graded everyone else's against his. Format and editorial setup were excellent. Paper layout and editing were excellent. To all of you [the students]: I very much enjoyed the course and hope to see you in another one.

From an advertising professional:
Thank you so much. Your work is fabulous. I have sent the resume to only one company, and Monday I will begin working for that company. The company's name is OneUpWeb and is located here in Traverse City. This is not just another job for me. This is a career move. Check out the Web page at OneUpWeb.com.

Jim, just wanted to let you know that I've landed the job I wanted all along! I'm currently in my second week of training to be a dining room manager at Carnevino, Mario Batali's Italian Steakhouse in the Palazzo Hotel. Not too shabby for someone who's been in this town only a month! Thanks for all your help. Hope you make it out here sometime soon so I can thank you in person.
S. M., Las Vegas, NV
Jim, your work has helped me receive more calls and e-mails for interviews in the last month than I've had over the entire past year. I have received five interview opportunities and one job offer thus far. Every interviewer has commented very positively on the quality and layout of the documents you provided.
I am currently waiting on an official offer from Verizon, who hire less than 1% of applicants. I truly feel that I would not have even been awarded an interview opportunity without your professional help, and so I thank you for that!
M. B., Huntsville, AL
Jim, ever since you wrote my resume, I have received as many interviews in 30 days as I did the previous 3 months. The better news is I received and accepted a position with a company that fits my skill set. I have no doubt that the reason for all this great news is your professional skills as a resume writer. Thank you very much for all you did for me. I would recommend you to anybody in need of updating a resume.
K. L., Huntsville, AL
Jim, thank you for an outstanding, professional job! Your pride comes through in your products. I will definitely recommend your services to others.

From a veteran chef, manager, and longtime entrepreneur in the restaurant and hospitality industry:
Jim, after an extensive interview process, I have been hired on with Trader Joe's, starting on Tuesday. I am so looking forward to it. Thank you for your support.
A. E., West Roxbury, MA
From an undergraduate student and IT professional:
Jim, you were able to take the information I gave you and paint an accurate picture of my work in a way I never would have been able to. I handed out about 10 resumes at the job fair, and it appeared a number of recruiters were extremely impressed as well. One company liked me enough that I'm booked for an interview tomorrow afternoon. The place was packed with students, and they had only a few other people on their roster for similar interviews. I have some friends on campus graduating with me or within the next year, and I will be sure to recommend they get in touch with you.
R. T., Owens Cross Roads, AL
From the president of a staffing company. I received this call 24 hours after e-mailing to the firm a resume I had just revamped for a middle manager. I had never previously dealt with this particular staffing firm:
Resumes are everything. You did a very fine job on the one for [this gentleman]. I am definitely going to submit it.

From an Air Force veteran who had just handed out his revamped resume to five employers earlier in the day:
Jim, I handed in the resumes today and got two job offers. Called to say very pleased with the results.
J. P., Huntsville, AL
From a senior-level manager:
Jim, you have a real gift. I could not have produced such wonderful documents myself. The resume and cover letter were professional, completely honest, yet flattering. When I read what had been written, I was impressed with myself. I would hire me. The real test is not what I thought of the product but the results from circulating it. It has opened doors and provided opportunities I had not been able to access with my previous efforts. Please feel free to use me as a reference should you need one.
K. S., Verona, PA
From a property manager and professional in sales and finance:
Jim, just wanted you to know my resume was a big hit. They even complimented me on how well it was put together! I was hired on the spot! I really appreciate your patience as well as your speedy response. Thank you very much. I will continue to refer to you anyone in need. Great job!
J. C., Huntsville, AL
Jim, just to let you know that I have found a new job in metro Atlanta, and I am moving there this weekend. My employer, Decoma, was really impressed with my resume.
S. M., Madison, AL
Looks great, Jim. Good news -- he [the prospective employer] called yesterday and offered me the job. Thanks again for all your help.
C. C., Lake Ann, MI
Jim, I can't thank you enough. It looks fantastic! You have a way with words. She [the prospective employer] loved the resume and wants me to send her your website address, since her husband needs a resume, too. Good job.
L. T., Madison, AL
Jim, I just wanted you to know that I was offered a job in my major -- exactly what I wanted. When I started to post my resume [that you had revamped for me], I received feedback faster than when I had originally done the resume myself. Everyone was so interested in the resume and great cover letter. You did a fantastic job -- it was well worth it. I will start my job on Monday.
T. D., Huntsville, AL
From an attorney:
Jim, just as a follow up, I wanted to thank you and let you know how much I appreciate your assistance in helping me nail my resume. Next month I'll be starting my new job as Vice President, Legal Services, for Huntsville Hospital.
K. D. G., Madison, AL
From the sister of a customer whose resume I had just uploaded to the Internet for him. I received this message about one hour after completing the upload:
Hello, Jim. I just got off the phone with Gary, and a recruiter has already contacted him. Can you believe it? The recruiter went over some of the basic info with Gary, but they will have an official phone interview tomorrow. I just thought you might want to know that our efforts are not fruitless. Again, thanks so much for your help and such a speedy response. Have a great New Year and many blessings.
P. R. T., Mobile, AL
Jim, You have done an incredible job with my resume. It sounds just like what I wanted to say -- only couldn't. And I felt my husband's [earlier attempt to write it for me] sounded a little arrogant. You are truly gifted with this type of work. I will recommend you to all my friends and associates. I will be sure to keep in touch and let you know when I become employed. I hope we will work together in the future.
C. Y., Hartselle, AL
Jim, just wanted to let you know I found out today that, thanks to you, I got referred for the job I was hoping for! Thanks much!
K. L. P., Huntsville, AL
From a man whose resume I had revamped for him less than 24 hours earlier. He called me to tell me the following:
I handed it [the finished resume] in this morning [to the man who had asked for it]. He offered me the job.
B. M., Meridianville, AL
Thank you for all your help. You did such excellent work on my resume! Before, it was plain and dull -- something someone would just put aside. Now it is an attention-grabber. With your wording and presentation, I believe it will stand out! I really appreciate how professional and dedicated you have been. It was such a pleasure doing business with you. Thanks so much.
K. A., Waltham, MA
Dear Jim, YOU ARE THE BEST! I love your corrections and will use them for my final copies. I have dropped your name to many of my colleagues. Thank you so kindly for your quick reply, and I wish you the best with your business! Take care.
M. H., Williamsport, PA
From a human resources manager:
Thank you so very much. You are a life-saver. I can't say enough about your professionalism.
M. D., Boston, MA
Thank you very much for the incredible work you have done for me on the resumes and cover letters. It was hard for me to recognize myself in there at first -- I never looked so good. You truly have a way with words. Good luck -- and be assured that I will not hesitate to refer people to you.
