new resume increased my salary by no
less than $18,000 annually!
... faxed my resume and started
receiving call backs the next day and the job of my dreams with a 26%
from Sales Rep to Sales Manager--with a 50% salary increase. The most recent
promotion I received resulted in a salary package increase of nearly 23%!
...after writing my resume, I've been hired for
an HR position that DOUBLES my salary. This was the best $$ I spent
during my whole 6-month job search.
... generated over a 50% request
for interviews. then landed a position with GTE which provides an
opportunity to make $10,000 more annually.
|ANOTHER SUCCESS STORY
your ProvenResumes Series--I'm just amazed. You've turned
resume writing into an art and even a science ... and
made sense out of the job search and what employers are
looking for ... I was CLUELESS up
until this point.
I'm excited to see what kind of response rate I get by increasing my
image through the GRAPHING
your first chapter!
I never had to look for a job before. This has been
overwhelming but I've renewed confidence after reading your
book. As far as I am
concerned you ARE the expert! I will tell anyone that's
writing their resume, or looking for a job to contact
Finished the cover letter chapter/booklet--not only did it make
sense-- but it had innovative concepts too. I'm still
recovering from misconceptions I learned in a 'Job Search Group'
that advocated "creative writing." The first
paragraph in my cover letter was so embarrassing I had to change it
before sending it to you!!! We were also told to print the resume
and letter on the brightest paper possible! JUNK ... I realize now
reading your book!
No wonder I never
received even one phone call! GOD BLESS YOU for this wonderful
book! Twice before I hired local resume writers which was a
waste of money ... all they did was add fluff. You're
the person I needed 3 years ago ... woulda, coulda, shoulda!
You're here now... I LOVE
THE SKILL HEADINGS you
created for the first job in my resume!!... CAN'T
WAIT TO SEE THE REST.. PS:
- I continued reading your electronic resume section and was very reassured when I saw the scripts you provide for
calling employers. Something that I am required to do this
week. I am amazed.
Your books go FAR beyond JUST writing
resumes! Steve Brodeur, Master Electronic/ R&D Technician
CORRECTLY IDENTIFY & MARKET YOUR SKILLS
2. ANALYZE JOB ADS to identify
top skills employers need
3. PROVE HOW YOUR SKILLS solve those
4. REPLACE WEAK TITLES with skills that match the
5. WRITE POWERFUL CONTENT to quantify achievements
6. USE DESIGN THAT DIRECTS attention

7. GRAPH RESUME TITLES &
SKILLS to determine if they make your image go up, down or match the image of the job
risk ... discouragement
... lost interviews
or $6K-$30K in lost income?
the VERY REAL COST OF AN INEFFECTIVE RESUME. If
you make $2K-10K+ per month and it takes 3 months to land a job--that's somewhere between $6K-$30K LOST! Same idea with STARTING SALARIES ... If
you could have written a resume that landed $2K-$20K more and
you don't then that's $2K-$20K LOST! Some clients have actually doubled their
salaries. In contrast, $9.95
for my book or $150-$250 for my MASTER RESUME WRITING
SERVICE is a pittance. NOW IMAGINE how great you'll feel if
your resume and cover letter gets the phone ringing with interviews and
puts $2K-$20K more in your pocket!

large resume firms, farm out resumes to writers
with little or no resume writing experience, so I'm asked if I write the
resumes. Yes, I write the resume and ask you dozens of questions
specific to your goals. Another MAJOR difference in my service is that
I TEACH YOU how to create a great resume. Seeing how I
use your answers to rewrite, target and create powerful skill headings
and resume statements ... along with your reading the image graphing and cover
letter chapters in my book ... YOU LEARN the Critical 7
Steps above. You then continue following these CRITICAL 7 STEPS
with every new
resume or cover letter you write. This KNOWLEDGE is what
results in $2K-$20K salary increases and doubling/tripling of
interview rates!! Just copying sections of resumes that
sound good DOESN'T GET THESE RESULTS!
I write your resume with you by email ...
|I like to receive your 2-3 page resume, 2-3 job ads and 2-3 paragraphs
describing your career and salary goals. I review it all and then go into your resume,
type and ask you dozens of
questions to pull out and market your skills and achievements to match
the job(s) you want! You return your answers. I revise the
first job and send it for review, then I revise the rest of the body and
send it for review. Last, I write the Objective & Summary
of Qualifications Section and send it for
review. This way we create your entire resume by
email. Fees are based on 2.5 hours of my time to ask questions,
revise the resume and send revisions back and forth to you!

Workshops that I've taught ...
trained HUNDREDS of Workforce & Employment Security Staff,
College Instructors, HR Directors & Recruiters who
purchased my PROVEN RESUMES SYSTEM to teach their clients--many
have termed me as a Master Resume Writer & Trainer.
Teaching these workshops I've asked hundreds of career professionals to review and compare
various formats and writing styles for each section of a
resume (Objective & Summary of Qualifications, Employment
/ Job Description, Education sections, etc.). I then
tested each section until I developed a resume format and
layout that is HIGHLY EFFECTIVE and consistently gets results
like the samples at the top left of this page.

finally feel prepared! Again, I can't thank you
enough. I really appreciate your time and effort.
