Resume writing is more than a skill it is an art.  I found the perfect artist for my personal brand.  I cold-called Resumes Etc two weeks ago with the urgency to have a cover letter and resume in hand within 24 hours.  Alfred Mariani, not only answered the phone himself, but delivered a magnificent piece of work and expedited the finish product in record time.  Fred has a special gift, not only as a fine writer, but also as an intricate listener.  It took three phone calls and one edit to produce my cover letter and newly written resume.  I have gone through this process in the past which took over a month with another resume writing agency.  As the story continues, I sent the resume to the prospective employer the same day it was completed and within 24 hours received an email requesting a phone interview!  The gentleman that conducted the interview said that he cannot compare my resume to that of any other–it was bar-none the best of all.  This job is out of state in Sarasota, FL, and I now have been asked for a face-to-face interview.  None of this would have been possible without Fred’s incredible sense of urgency and unparalleled commitment to his work.  He and his team receive an A+ rating simply because they are the best.  I am beyond grateful, thanks a million Resume Etc!

And Fred, if all goes well you have a place to visit in sunny Florida!

Best always,
Geri Brown

I have been a client of Fred Mariani and Resumes Etc. for over 6 years now.  Since working with Fred I have been able to generate a multitude of interest in my career path with potential employers thereby gaining phone interviews and then face to face interviews leading to employment offers.  Until I went to Fred somewhat disappointed with my then current resume I was getting little to no notice.  Fred has a unique way of presenting your experience and accomplishments and tells a story quickly and effectively for the reader.  He also understands the nature of the searches being used in today's world and knows based on industry what keywords are searched / mined thus helping you get noticed in front of others.

Where Fred's talents really lie is in his ability to listen to his client and understand what it is you are trying to accomplish with his resume and cover letter.  He then crafts what is an artistic form of your work history, showcasing talents and achievements  in a way that potential employers are compelled to read.  Beyond the resume and cover letters themselves, Fred has significant talent as a Coach and Mentor in the business world.  His experience is vast and it only takes about ten to 15 minutes of your time to test whether or not Fred knows what he speaks of.  I can tell anyone who reads this review that Fred was personally integral to my success in achieving three different positions in three different industries!  Happily I can say I am now where I want to be career wise and give significant credit to Fred Mariani in making that happen.  

To summarize, Resume's etc. and the entire staff have been of great help to me, are always ready to assist with a quick call or question about anything career related.  I truly recommend Resume's Etc. to anyone who will listen to me, without reservation.  Most importantly I consider Fred Mariani a friend and am forever grateful to him.

All the best,

Gregory S.

I would like to take this opportunity to Thank the entire staff at Resumes ETC for the wonderful job they did on my and my wife's resumes and job searches. Fred and his family took the information I sent them and created such impressive Resumes and then also searched daily through all of their sources to match me and my wife up with specific job opportunities geared toward our skills and education background that We were able to find jobs that was a fit for us. We are the parents of special needs children so finding jobs asap was a main priority.  My wife and I were both out of work so Fred worked with me and cut my cost of preparing my resume in half and prepared a resume for my wife for free. We both now have good jobs and are starting to get our lives back in order. They all went above and beyond for me and kept me posted with weekly updates of all the progress. Whenever I had a question or needed advice on a certain issue they encouraged me to call and they always answered or returned a call the same day. You gave me all tools and knowledge I needed to post for jobs, get interviews and close the deal. I Thank You all again at Resumes ETC for your dedication , sincere kindness and hard work. I will recommend your services to everyone I encounter.

Sincerely, John

Dear Fred,

A great and wise man once assured a nation by telling them, “The only thing that we have to fear is fear itself.”  He was trying to tell the American people that anything is possible if we take a deep breath, step up to the plate, and give it our best effort.  Everyone of us is capable of attaining and accomplishing our dreams if we step out from under the cloud of doubt and move into the light of day.

Even after attaining a great deal of success in my chosen profession, I had twinges of doubt when it came to applying to a highly competitive graduate program.  I knew what I wanted to accomplish, but I doubted my ability to penetrate “the glass ceiling” and succeed in an entirely new field of competition.  It was then that you stepped into my life.  You acted as a mentor, a muse, and a coach all rolled into one.  After our first phone conversation I suddenly felt confident and self assured that with the right coaching and expert guidance I could accomplish all of my goals.  Thank you, Fred, for helping me to get over that initial hurdle.  I approached the application process with your guidance, and without fear or trepidation.  Your expert advice on my professional resume and the essay part of the application were invaluable.  You assured me that I would be successful, and you were absolutely right!  I am now enrolled in the graduate program of my dreams and well on my way to accomplishing my goals.  Your professional guidance and encouragement motivated me to move forward with confidence, and there is no stopping me now!  Your experience, guidance and encouragement have served as the catalyst I needed to begin my new career.  I would encourage anyone who is thinking about utilizing your services to give you a call, they will immediately hear the value that you bring to the table!  Thank you so much!

Sincerely,
Danielle

Dear Fred,

I want to take a moment to thank you for being such an instrumental piece of why I was able to go from housewife/mother of four to not only being an executive of the largest company in our space but also a share holder.

Resumes etc were able to take a career I had in my twenties (20 years prior) and make it relevant and competitive for today’s market. You and your team were incredibly easy to work with, including a very fast turnaround.

I posted my resume on Monster.com and had a phone call within 72 hours which lead to an interview and my first position in the industry I now serve. After 3 years of employment with them I was fortunate enough to be recruited by a client where I am happily employed to date. You also updated my resume for this position and did a fabulous job.

I am thrilled you are assisting my children who are now in college applying for their internship programs. After speaking with you on the phone today I am confident they are in the best of hands as well. You take all the pain out of what can be a very stressful, skillful task.

You are simply the best Fred at what you do and this is why I have called on you over and over. Even being in Darien you are so worth the drive.

I appreciate your candor, your guidance and most of all you talent.

Warm regards,
Alexis Evanich

Dear Fred/Chris,

I came to Resumes Etc because I have an impressive background in digital/social media and wasn’t getting any calls from my resume. You guys reinvented me and within weeks I received many calls and job offers. Your customers need to know about you folks. First, Fred possesses incredible credentials and a knowledge base that cannot be matched. Secondly, they go out of their way to really make you feel like a member of their extended family. They actually care about their customers and take their customers’ success personally. Your concerns become their concerns. They even worked within my budget, giving me as much value as possible. Thirdly, they don’t only say that their values guide their business philosophy, they believe it, and it’s true. These people are not only brilliant, masterful at their craft, but also caring and compassionate about getting you were you need to be. I don’t see any other service that can match them.

I called Fred evenings and weekends and drove him nuts. he returned every call and spent as much time as necessary to address my needs.

I leave you all with one thought… GO TO THEM, THEY ARE THE REAL DEAL.

Don .P

Fred & Chris,

I went to Fred at Resumes Etc because my daughter is a special needs student and the school system was not providing the support she needed. I couldn’t afford a lawyer because my husband is a US Marine sergeant and our income is limited. Among the many skills that Fred has is his knowledge of special needs laws and he serves as an advocate for military families. Fred served as my advocate and during a 3 month period he attended every IEP meeting with me and we obtained every single service that we were entitled to. Fred would not take a single dime for his services because of his commitment to the military. So,if you are looking to work with someone that has real values ,resumes etc is the place to go.

Kim

Dear Fred,

I decided to update my resume and so I went to the career center of the university I attended years ago to get help. They recommended that I go to Resumes Etc. Before going, I went to the library to locate any book on resumes so that I could at least prepare a draft.When visiting the library, the librarian suggested that I go to Resumes Etc. I was a bit surprised having been recommended to Resumes Etc by two separate sources. A few weeks passed and I decided to get in touch with the career center at my local women’s club, and not to my surprise they recommended Resumes Etc. Not to be out done, I received one more suggestion to go to Resumes Etc from the Chamber of Commerce. Well, at this point, everyone but my bartender sent me to Resumes Etc. I met with Fred and Chris and was absolutely impressed with their knowledge of the market, various industries, job and economic trends and how to package me for success. Most of all, they were caring, professional, very friendly and always returned my calls promptly. I had  zero success in the past getting interviews and job offers. After working with Resumes Etc, I had 8 interviews and 3 solid job offers. Let me be one of many sources that will refer you to Resumes Etc. They are the real deal with a knowledge base that is unmatched.

It was a pleasure having my Resume, Cover Letter and Profile created by Fred Mariani at www.ResumeEtc.com. The entire experience, from start to finish, demonstrated the highest professionalism, attention to detail, outstanding customer service, expertise and expedience of the Company. The customer, working in Healthcare, would find him-or herself particularly lucky, due to the immense knowledge and deep understanding of the process by Fred Mariani. All corrections and changes were made promptly, following brief electronic or verbal exchanges. Louise Marani was fantastic in making adjustments, formating, and visual improvement of the documents. I am very happy with the result, and will highly recommend the Company to anyone in need of a powerful Resume, which is a necessity in a modern workplace.

Resume Etc. was one of the best decisions I made for advancing my career in the veterans field. For the last three years I have had the honor of representing my fellow veterans throughout the entire claim/appeal process. Given my passion for helping veterans, M.B.A. Degree along with the resume building and interview preparation offered by Alfred and his staff.  I was offered the position of Program Coordinator for the Supportive Services for Veterans Families program and I have several people on my staff.

Alfred and his entire staff were professional throughout the entire process. They returned all voice-mails and emails promptly and answered every question I had.  I truly believe Resume Etc. made the difference by re-building my resume and providing me with advanced interview techniques. Lastly, Alfred is compassionate and understands the unique challenges that veterans face today in the workforce.

I cannot thank you enough.

I had truly lost faith in everything related to my job search. I was an unemployed 28 year old college graduate with a Master’s Degree who was applying to literally thousands of jobs online and hearing nothing back. That was until I was introduced to Fred and my life changed. Not only does he create outstanding resumes directed specifically towards the position you apply for, but he genuinely cares and uses his knowledge and wisdom in listening and giving advice related to the professional world. Fred is truly amazing and one of the nicest people I’ve  ever met.  If it weren’t for his help and promises, I wouldn’t be employed right now. I would absolutely recommend his services to everyone I know. Thank you, Fred! :)

I am an 87 year old WW2 vet who lost his job.I still have to work to support my grandchildren and I had no money.The people at resumes etc did my resume,cover letter and online support free of charge.They then did a special cover letter to change my age from a negative to a positive. I was hired in 4 weeks and the employer cited the special cover letter  as the reason.I didn’t think that businesses with values still exist.thank you so very very much,you saved my life.

Stew Lahey

Fred!!

It’s with great pleasure to tell you that I landed a job only a couple of weeks after making my first contact with you! I will now be reporting for an ABC affiliate in the midwest and couldn’t be any happier. As I said to you from the beginning, resume writing is an art. I always prided myself with being able to write well, but resume writing is a completely different animal. Once I put in a couple years out there, I plan on getting back in touch with you to make further revisions that will continue to help me in my future endeavors. I’m a client for life and would never go to anyone else. Thank you so much for your help and I hope to stay in touch with you. I’m so happy that I took the step in making this investment! I’ll be making that money back in no time. Thank you, Fred.

Sincerely,
Daniel

Before I began looking for a new job, I contacted Resumes Etc. to have my professional profile polished. Since receiving the updated professional materials,I have been offered 5 interviews–2 of which have provided offers! Thank you for the great work and looking forward to working with your firm in the future!

Book Review for Columbus and Maynard

What a pleasure it was to read this book!  As someone of Italian descent as well, it was so nice to read about familiar things of growing up Italian, i.e. pasta being called macaroni (across the board), sauce being called gravy (also across the board-other Italians know what is meant based on what’s being cooked for dinner), etc.

There were funny moments, poignant moments, and an overall feeling of wanting to have been a part of that experience, although, through reading this book, the generations that follow will at least have the chance to do it vicariously.

Columbus and Maynard gives the reader the chance to understand that the world that exists today, in many important ways, doesn’t even remotely resemble what it was like back in the America of the 50s and 60s.  For Generation X and all the ones that follow, readers are introduced to a mindset and way of living that they probably only heard their grandparents (and sometimes even their parents) talk about.  Times that were rich, not with money, but with values for human life, and respect for others as well as for self.  Villages truly helped one another raise their children; they didn’t simply look the other way if a child was misbehaving for fear of litigious retribution from the child’s parents. Today we seem to think we need advertising campaigns to tell us to say something if we see something-no we don’t! We just need to do what we know is right, without waiting for permission from the media or from the public at large.

This book also reminds us that we need to hold on, or in some cases, revive, the traditions of our respective heritages.  Kitchens aren’t just for show, they’re too-what’s that word they used to use…? Oh yea! COOK IN!  Yes, friends, we need to get back into the kitchen and cook again, not from the box or the bag, but from SCRATCH!  Old School, baby, that’s the way to do it!  All those cooking shows on TV are making things from scratch-why do you think they do that??  Because it tastes better when you make things with real ingredients and with a love for what you’re doing.  Intention is so important!

That is what Columbus and Maynard is about-people who intended to do good and acted accordingly.  They lived with a sense of purpose and with gratitude for what they had, and their faith, family, friendships, and good health were their most valuable assets.

Funny how, when things go wrong in our lives today, our faith, family, friendships, and good health are still our most valuable assets.

Understand, that the only disconnect we have between the generations, is what we make.

Joy C., Monroe, CT

Al,

I want to personally thank you for the work performed on my resume update, your personal touch describing my career and the attributes I would bring to an organization aided in getting me $5,000 more than the original salary asked. In addition, I was hired on by the new firm within 24 hours of leaving the previous organization. Again thank you, I can honestly profess that your writing skills made me shine as the finishing touch was my interview skills.
God bless good buddy.

Respectfully,

Norris Adams

I am a top sales professional for a multibillion-dollar Organization that recently decided to explore a career in sales management.  I’ve worked for many years and my position in sales and wasn’t prepared for the potential transition into management.  A colleague of mine referred me to Alfred Mariani a resumes Etc., to help me with my resume and coach me through what has been an extremely thorough and extensive interview process. After my first conversation with Fred, he immediately made me feel more confident and he has given me unbelievable guidance and support through each step of a very long process. Fred’s tremendous experience and business acumen make him someone that everyone should want standing in their corner with them when they are at a crossroads in their career.  His personal vested interest in his client’s success is what sets him apart from others and what I was most impressed with.  I would strongly urge anyone to reach out to Fred and have a talk with him, within a few minutes you will know you called the right person!

——

I knew I was a star but it had to look like that on my resume. Fred took my life experience, my professional skills and Unlatched them in words that reflected my professional talent. He is unlike anyone else when it comes to writing resumes. I live in NYC and have access to the best which I tried -but they failed and Fred made it all happen for me. My resume is so good, That i feel so proud going in for an interview and thats what I am doing – going for interviews. I landed a job at a place that is wonderful! Spend your doe and go to him. Do the coaching, he is the STAR! I have friends who want to see him. All my life experience is reflected on my resume – GO TO HIM! I would write more but I have to GO TO WORK! :)

Michelle Zaffino, Business Development.

Just finished working with Resumes Etc and I was very pleased with how they handled my request. Fred appeared to be very knowledgeable and was a pleasure to work with. They were very responsive from the moment I started communication with them and remained that way until the job was completed. I would recommend their services.

Hi Fred,

I hope this message finds you well. On Wednesday of last week I began uploading my resume to the various job sites. As we discussed a couple weeks back I was going through a rough patch starting this year off. Within several days I moved out of my apt (into storage and my sister’s couch!), lost my job and began a divorce. Ugh. Luckily, I took a few bucks and some trust and found you and your service.

So, Wednesday last week I began uploading the resume. By Wednesday afternoon I had confirmed an interview for today the 27th. They loved me and made it clear that I nailed the interview. An offer letter is coming in tomorrow morning, per the hiring manager. The job is a 50% pay increase from my old salary!

I cannot thank you enough for the work you and your team did in changing the way I presented myself as a candidate. I made some tweaks, additions and format changes to the file you sent over. For your records, I’ve attached it to this email.

Some time tomorrow I am going to send you an email with at least 2 potential folks looking to update their resumes. After seeing mine they are quite eager to talk with you. As promised, I will do my best to keep work heading your way, since without you, I would not be sitting here with a big ole grin on my face having weathered one heck of personal storm. Not to mention a nice job waiting for me to start on February 10th. All in all, it took 4 days to land a great new job. Is this some kind of record??? :)
Joking aside, and with all sincerity, thank you.
Regards,
Dan McNamara

Dear Fred,

I am a career changer with over two decades of progressive experience in the corporate world. Even with solid, transferable skills, I knew it was risky moving into another industry. Months of searching had yielded no concrete results.

Within 72 business hours of submitting my resume to Resumes Etc., Fred returned a concise, restructured document, using succinct terms to reflect my accomplishments. They are terms that I would not have thought of, yet are accurate and clearly resonate with senior executives.

I had a chance to ‘test drive’ the new resume two days later when an opportunity came to my attention. I sent it out, and was contacted for an interview the following business day. Long story short,I landed the job within four weeks of first contacting Resumes Etc.

This achievements thanks to the fresh pair of eyes and years of in-depth experience that Fred brought to the review and rewriting of my resume. The Resumes Etc. fee was the best money I ever spent in a job hunt.

Doris

Fred,

You really are great at what you do! I am impressed with your ability to pull together ones work experience and skills, to create a resume’ that shines. I took your advice and mailed my resume to approximately 50 potential employers. The result was impressive. My phone started to ring off the hook. I heard numerous times that my resume was impressive. I was offered a job from three different employers, it was incredible. Your services are worth every penny! You listened, created a resume that was unique to me, and were a pleasure to work with.\

Thanks again!

When I was desperate for a new look to my resume, fresh ideas about how to market myself, and an understanding of the current job market, Fred came to my rescue.  I never would have had the objectivity, the ultra-professional slant, and the strong presentation Fred provided.  Through some extra services, he helped guide me through the interview process.  I am now working at a job in my field, close to home, and with supportive co-workers.   Thank you Resumes Etc.

Barbara R.

Fred,
I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the excellent service you provided. Several months ago I came to you looking for resume / cover letter services. I had my hopes set on a specific job posted at a local university, but knew that I also had to keep my eyes open for other opportunities in both academia and the corporate world. You created two resumes and two cover letters covering all of my needs, and the cost was very reasonable considering all of the hard work that went into my specific case.
Using the resumes you created, I was offered three jobs in the span of six months, during one of the most heinous recessions that our country’s economy has ever seen.
The third offer came from the university that I had hoped to work for and now I have been happily employed for over six months. Also, the hiring committee told me multiple times that my cover letter and resume stood heads above the rest of the other candidates.
There is nothing greater than giving someone the confidence to go out into the world and succeed at finding a great career. You have done that for me and I can’t thank you enough.
Warmest Regards,

Edyta

Fred,
I referred a friend of mine from Minnesota. She told me that your work was so amazing that she got an interview for every job she applied to and landed a great position. Keep up the great work.

Scott Greenberg

I would like to thank you for putting together a perfect resume. Not only did I receive a great response but also found a wonderful job in less than a month. I was even told on one of the interviews I went to it was the best resume they had ever seen and was asked if she could model hers after mine!

I am certain that my updated resume was the key to getting so many interviews (and offers) and have already told all my friends that it was the best thing I ever did.

Thanks again.

Dear Fred,

I wanted to Thank you for the fantastic cover letter and resume. I was offered the job after the first interview. The Director told me that he was impressed with my resume and that my cover letter was very specific and I was exactly what they were looking for. This would not have been possible without you. I just wanted you to know I really appreciate all your hard work and expertise. You’re the best.
Sincerely,

Amy McKenna

I just wanted to thank you so much for your service. I was very pleased with the results and I have been referring people to you. One is my best friend who was going to give you a call today. I’ve also been recommending you to people at my church and some have taken down your information.
I posted my resume online with Monster.com on Thursday after meeting with you. Within 5 hours a company contacted me in Glastonbury and I was hired on Friday. Your services really worked!!

Thank you again and I will continue to promote your business.
Sincerely,

Amy

Fred,

I hope all is well. It has been over a year since you helped me put my future in perspective and set me on a great path to success. I wanted to let you know that I did it! I am finally leaving my job in the Bronx and moving out of the Valley! Just like you will be, I am heading south! Thanks to you and how you helped me sell myself with my AWESOME and INCREDIBLE resume (AND COVER LETTER), I just signed an offer letter for my dream job in Florida with full RELO! Good by State Sales Tax and hello fishing and golf!

Seriously, Fred, you truly were a great help in getting me focused and helping me sell myself. I cannot wait to start my new job as the Director of Information Services at Health First Health Plans in Rockledge, FL in June.

You truly are great at what you do and you make your clients look inside to pull out their potential.

I have referred a couple of colleagues to you and I believe one has actually had the brains to call. The other should soon enough!

Thanks again my friend and we will be in touch to ensure my resume stays current!

Regards,
Jim Berlinger

Dear Fred,

I can not thank you enough for the excellent resume you prepared for me. Every school system that I sent my resume to, called me for an interview, which led to my landing a job I love! I am completely convinced that your superbly professional representation of me opened doors that might not have otherwise been opened. People who are serious about getting a good job or making a change need an edge and your succinct use of powerful words in addition to your keen sense of what employers are looking for provides an edge that leads to an opportunity. That opportunity is worth its weight in gold! To this day, I continue to recommend your marvelous service to others. In fact, the resume and cover letter you prepared for my daughter, who just completed her MSW, is fabulous!

Thank you Fred~

Best Wishes,

Debbie Williams

Hello Fred,

I wanted to thank you for helping me land my dream job! For three years after graduating college I had no job offers. I finally made my career change and had my resume and cover letter updated to enter the paralegal profession. I started my program at the University of Hartford in Sept. I have had two interviews before even finishing my program. I was recently offered a position at a large law firm in Hartford with a salary above market value. It is almost a third more than what I was making previously. Thank you so much for you help Fred. I couldn’t have done it without you!

-Laura Mattie

Fred and his staff they are top notch.

I have had the pleasure of working with Fred and staff to update my resume’s many times. They are professional know exactly how to prepare my resume and tailor it for each job I have ever applied for. I am pleased to say that I have been offered every position. For me it is simple and cost effective to go right to Fred and have him prepare my resume the right way.

Fred Mariani is the key ingredient to getting a new job!

The end of June this year I received notice that my position had been eliminated. This was a shock! I immediately went out to my network and landed a few interviews. After I didn’t get offers I realized that I had been saying the wrong things and that I harbored negative feelings toward my employer. These feelings were coming out in the interviews. I did some research online and found Fred. This changed the entire process and my life. Within one months time I have received 2 offers. One is a very lucrative offer from a top company based here in CT which I will be accepting. Do yourself a favor and work with Fred. You will immediately feel like you have a team behind you. You will feel confident and empowered to tackle your job search, talk with prospective employers and land a new job. Fred provided me with a cover letter, resume and interview skills. All were very important to packaging myself. The interview skills was vital because it provided me with answers I was able to memorize and then own. This gave me the confidence to express myself in an interview without saying the wrong things. It also eliminated saying too much. Having the answers to all the questions and then building on those as you interview makes a world of difference. I will continue to share the success I had with Fred with my family, friends and anyone looking for help with a job search. Fred and his team made challenging situation manageable and fun.

Thank you Fred and your team for doing great work.

Sincerely,
Tom Lynch

I want to take a moment to thank you for expediting and doing a wonderful job. I was under the gun to have this resume submitted thanks to your quick turnaround I was able to accomplish the task at hand.
I would freely recommend your services to anyone in need of a well put together professional resume.
Sincerely
Jonathan Morales

Dear Fred,
I am writing to thank you, enthusiastically, for squeezing the most potential out of my resume. Within a day of posting it on CareerBuilder, I received 9 emails from recruiting managers requesting more information in order to set up interviews with me. Already, I have 4 interviews this week and I haven’t even responded to all the initial emails yet. I couldn’t be more satisfied with your services and I would, without hesitation, highly recommend your services to anyone looking for a job in this tough economy. PS. if any one of your potential clients would like to call me for more information about my experience I would be happy to answer any questions they have. I can be reached at 203.615.4095.

All the best,

Matt McGarry

Dear Fred, Thank you, thank you, thank you for your help with my daughter Megan’s resume. She just landed a job at Greenwich Academy as the Costume Coordinator. This job enables her to do what she loves with double the pay. The other perks are medical benefits that rarely come with this line of work, 401K, tuition reimbursement, and an annual stipend ($3,000.00) to go increase her skills for the job.

Personally, I want to thank you father to father. We always want to feel like are children are settled. This position gives me the peace of mind regarding that issue. I now know that she has found a home and will be able to support herself in her chosen field – a beuatiful thing. Thanks,

Thanks, Tom Ormond

About Fred:

As of today I have 8 interviews with 4 more probables that I have to call back at the end of January! There is a huge possibility I will have over 12 interviews considering we don’t even leave for Florida for 20 days! Before Fred redid my piece of garbage resume no one would look at me especially since I’ve been out of the hospitality field for over 12 years, but since resume became stellar I now have interviews for FOM, F&B Manager, along with Restaurant Manager. I highly recommend resumes etc. The money you pay is well worth it. Listen to Fred, he does know what he is talking about and because of this my family and I now will most likely be able to move to Florida!!

Thanks Fred!!

Sincerely,

Fred,

“I feel compelled to write a testimony about the resume and cover letter you wrote for me this year. We have been together now about 2 years, and EVERY time I fax a cover letter and a Resume you have done for me I get an interview!!!!!!
I am told during these interviews what a wonderful Resume I’ve sent to them, how interviewees no longer use the kind of vocabulary that’s written and that it is evident that I care about the quality of the resume I am sending.
I will always come to you for my resume needs, Fred, because you do a fantastic job and you get me in the door. Kudo’s my friend.

Roberta

Dear Fred,

I am a senior executive who has been coming to you for over 10 years and each time I am called for an interview for a better position I call you to jazz up my resume. It always makes a difference and with that said you have done my wife’s twice and my son’s once. My son was laid off during the early part of the recession and in spite of a pedigree degree in his field there were no offers until you reinvented his resume. He got a better job with more responsibility and the resume played a big part. Separately I sent you one of my employees husband who was a recession victim of the banking fall out in NYC. Armed with his new resume he had two offers for the same as he was previously making within two weeks. Keep up in the good work as you truly make a difference.

Fred,

“Thank youuuuuuuuuu so much Fred for the professional resume that you did for me. I have been unemployed for over a year and was not getting no results with the resume that I had. Fred is beyond just writing a resume, he is brilliant in all job occupations and what is in demand going forward. I have read the emails of others using this service and I was IMPRESSED. The end result was I took my resume on a job that had been seen by five hundred applicants and only had twenty two positions that needed to be filled. I was one of those twenty two chosen for one of the positions. Being on a job for so long I did not know anything about job interviewing skills until I found Fred company. PLEASE for anyone who needs to have a resume done and interviewing coaching done on a PROFESSIONAL level Fred is the person you want to use. You would not go to fight a WAR without being equip for battle. The same goes for the job market not having the tools that are required in the end result you will not win.”

Thank You Fred A. Rogers

Fred

Dear Mr. Mariani:
I recently purchased a resume and career coaching from your firm and I thought I should write and let you know how pleased I am with both the resume and your service.
I was recently recruited to manage a political campaign in the state of Virginia, largely based on my previous experience that was well-positioned on the new resume that you authored for me. The career coaching that you provided to me was also worth the investment, as I was much more comfortable in the personal interview situation than I otherwise would have been.
I’d like to thank you personally for helping me in this stage of my job search. I will be more than happy to recommend your service to anyone who asks me about it.
In an age when so many products don’t live up to their advertising claims, your products and services are as good as you advertise. I am one satisfied customer, and will continue to be for years to come. Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

David O’Connell

The resume you completed for me has received a signigifigant number of compliments from senior Wall Street executives. The CIO of a fortune 5 company said “very interesting and well written resume.” My role as a senior global manager has provided me the opportunity to read thousand’s of resumes. People that know me would say that I have high standards, I am fair and only pay compliments when absolutely justified. The resume you drafted is absolutely “BRILLIANT”
Many Thanks,

Keith

Fred,

Just wanted to catch up and let you know that the resume worked exceedingly well. I was able to land another position as a national credit manager within a week of getting the resume out, which was good thing since my job was eliminated at Fujifilm about a week later due to downsizing. Needless to say I transition over without any loss of pay plus a severance package. The resume was definitely instrumental.

I would like to update the resume with the new positions title and responsibilities, and I want to make sure that I have everything updated to cover all contingencies, the question I have for you is what would you charge for that let me know at your earliest convenience thanks for your help warm regards Tony regarding us.

Warm Regards,
Tony Gregoras

Just wanted to let you know that I landed a job with Sikorsky three days after you wrote my resume. They said it was the best cover letter they had ever seen. Thank you for your help.

Dear Fred,

I thought you might like to hear something a perspective employer remarked about my cover letter and resume. He received over 200 resumes and said mine stood out and was the best by far.

Thank you so much for your job search assistance. I am awaiting a final confirmation from Northrop Grumman concerning my job offer in Bethpage, NY. They have already transferred my security clearance from the military to their company. They are in the process of getting the test results from my drug screening and conducting a background check. Once that is complete, it should be final. The job offer is for a Level II Program Manager in the Aerospace Systems sector. The pay and benefits are excellent.

So, with the grace of God, I should have a definite job in the next week or so.

Deborah
Fred,
A huge thank you, I’ve been applying to jobs for six weeks without one response, your resume and cover letter landed me an interview with the first job I applied for.

I’ve tried writing my own resumes in the past with only marginal results, but what you have done for me is absolutely revolutionary! The response from potential clients and employers was so immediate that I was overwhelmed and delighted.

I can’t thank you enough, not only have you written me a resume that I’m proud of, but the confidence to match.

The very best to you!

Steph
Fred,
I received two job offers already. When I posted your resume on-line I got great critiques. I was also impressed with all the time you spent with me.

Thanks

Rich
Fred did an amazing job with my resume focusing it more clearly and specifying the details of my experience. After sending it out to just one place to start with, I got a call from HR saying the president of the company (a large NY firm) saw it and wanted me to come in for an interview.

Dear Fred
I would like to express a sincere thank you for the timely creation of one of the finest resumes and two power cover letter(s) one could imagine. The professional coaching skills also helped me gain the confidence that I needed to successfully conduct my job search and interview. To possess a skill that requires condensing a three page resume into 2 pages and allowing my KSA’s to shine is a gift.
I can honestly say that now I feel great about presenting my resume to employers. I also feel that my resume and cover letter will yield the results of finding my dream job. Business with Resumes ETC. does not stop here. I will continue to use your expertise and recommend your resume writing to many others in the future.

Thank you very much!

Dear Fred,
I am writing to thank you, enthusiastically, for squeezing the most potential out of my resume. Within a day of posting it on CareerBuilder, I received 9 emails from recruiting managers requesting more information in order to set up interviews with me. Already, I have 4 interviews this week and I haven’t even responded to all the initial emails yet. I couldn’t be more satisfied with your services and I would, without hesitation, highly recommend your services to anyone looking for a job in this tough economy. PS. if any one of your potential clients would like to call me for more information about my experience I would be happy to answer any questions they have. I can be reached at 203.615.4095.

All the best,

Good morning Fred,

Just wanted to say hello and see how you are doing! I officially started my job at Smith & Nephew on Monday in the Orthopedics/Trauma Division. Our Connecticut District is based out of Southbury and nationally ranked in the top five for most profitable districts. I was able to secure this through a friend who worked with me at a previous country club when I was younger. My boss is a member there as well…great guy. My position at the moment is entry-level as an OSC Mobile Driver. I am essentially transporting the surgical trays and implants between our reps/accounts in the state. The great thing is my boss already wants me to be face tracked because he doesn’t foresee me doing that for very long. He wants me to get my own LLC so I can start working trauma cases for reps who don’t want to work on the weekends. All very overwhelming but exciting! I have been in nine orthopedic surgeries in the last few weeks, and it is just truly amazing how much our reps do in the surgery providing the surgeons assistance. I accepted a 40k base salary with full benefits. My boss said that once I get into trauma on weekends I have the opportunity to double/triple my weekly salary, which is nice to know! I truly want to thank you for all of your help over the past few months, and without your assistance…none of this would have ever happened. I am telling friends about your service, so you may be hearing me as a reference in the coming months…anything I can do to help you out! I certainly haven’t forgotten about our golf agreement. Anytime you are available, we can definitely work on your golf swing. I would also love to play whenever our schedules coincide. I am also asking Chris to take the three of us out at his club for a round sometime this summer, that would be fun! Thank you again for all of your help! I look forward to speaking with you soon!

Thanks

Andrew
Fred and Chris,

Good evening: I recently used your services for a resume + coverletter, which i was so impressed and happy with.

And further on i will train to promote the company within their media sales as well as their real estate ventures. I want to give my sincere thanks to Resumes Etc.

Thank you

Hello Fred,

THANK-YOU !!!

After months of sending out Jays resume (that I wrote) and getting not one response we realized it was time to turn to you. We had no idea what a huge response we would get after you created such an impressive work of art. In just one day Jay has three interviews lined up. Today is his first interview and the salary is almost double.

We can’t thank-you enough as you have greatly exceeded our expectations. We also need to thank-you for taking our difficult financial situation into consideration and creating a resume for me at no charge. Your heart is made of gold, and you are a true Master at creating amazing, and effective resumes.

Warmest Regards,

Jay and Linda Terault

The festival would be called live green Connecticut! Fred and I’m that I number of locations where he came to understand my vision my goals and what was needed for my dream to become a reality.

Fred’s coaching was simply priceless, especially from a corporate standpoint. For live green Connecticut! To be big success, corporate support and funding were absolutely essential. Fred to guidance, methods and professional suggestions were helpful beyond words thanks to Fred for being an integral member of the live Green Connecticut! Team, the festival achieved what I had envisioned and I am now working on Live green Connecticut 2011!

Dear Fred,

“Just got through sending a copy of my new resume out for a possible interview. Even though I am currently employed and loving my job I am always hunting for something better.I have had a couple of resumes written by Fred in the past and they have always opened doors for employment. In fact my current position was obtained solely on the strength of what he had written. I was pretty much hired on the spot, you can’t ask for anything better! Again, thank you Fred for being my partner in my job search. Hopefully you can also open a door for my daughter when the time comes. You are truly a genius at what you do and the wordsmith that you are.”

Dear Fred,

I got the job! I want to thank you for such an impeccable resume and cover letter that assisted me in applying for a supervisory position within my agency. I must admit I was a little nervous because I knew I was not the only one going for the position. However, when I read my resume I was in awe at how after we met you were able to capture my skills and talents in such a way that I was even impressed with the person on the resume.

This experience assisted me in so many ways. The immediate result was that it increased my confidence and gave me the assurance that I have what it takes to go further in my career. The interview questions you prepared for me were amazing. I was so comfortable in a room of four managers staring at me. Later, I was informed that the VP of Operations commented on how I had such an impressive cover letter.
Again, thank you for a job well done. I have informed colleagues and friends of your work so be on the look out!

Sincerely,
Lamond Daniels, LCSW

Dear Fred:
It seems like businesses today forget that people are what business is all about. That’s not true of Resumes, Etc. I’m writing to let you know that your company is a great example of what a business can be.
Your services and guidance have led me to a Help Desk position in Cheshire, CT with ACS. The resume you provided helped me stand out among the hundreds of applicants screened by their Human Resources Department, and your interview skills and other coaching materials helped me to stand out personally in a multi-stage interview process. I’m starting work on August 8, 2011, and I could not be more excited and pleased for this positive outcome in a difficult employment environment.
It’s not often that something that’s supposed to be all about profit remembers what it’s really all about. Resumes, Etc. gives me hope for the future. Thank you for your time.
Respectfully,

Mark O’Connell

Dear Fred,

Thank you for your excellent resume, cover and thank you letters. I have received several interviews since working with you over the past year, and have identified some excellent career opportunities. The resume you created clearly identifies numerous areas of success and includes a terrific overview and metrics for success throughout my executive career.
I have greatly benefited form the career coaching that Fred has provided, including an overview of strategic leadership, decision making, and strategic planning in my current position. Fred is an excellent executive coach, providing valuable advice for how to position yourself in the next stage of your career. Fred has provided terrific cocahing for the day before a recent follow-up interview, offering terrfic feedback and intelligent questions to ask during the interview. The coaching session was invaluable, and provided me with confidence heading into the interview.
I have found his advice for how to structure answers to important questions during the interview as an imperative part of the interview process. After working with Fred, I have become much more strategic and concise with my answers, focusing on success metrics and my executive background. Fred as an Executive Coach is a critical part of the comprehensive package that he provides candidates, and I thoroughly look forward to working with him in the future.
Thank you once again Fred,

Best Regards,

Hello there,

Wanted to let you know that I was just accepted into the UConn MBA program. Thank you so much for your help in preparing my resume and letter of intent – I have no doubt that these were a significant reason for my acceptance. It was a pleasure working with you and I would recommend you to anyone in the future.

Thanks!

Fred,

I’m deeply sorry for not following up with you sooner. Thank you for your services and preparing me for interviews. You developed my resume and made it more appealing to potential employers and recommended that I used the direct mailing method.. IT WORKED! I am very thankful for the many interview opportunities I was offered and after my year-long job hunt, I am finally employed! Thank you for such a great experience and for helping me see a light at the end of the tunnel!

Best Regards,

Jamie Giannattasio

Hey Fred,

Guess what, with your great advice and awesome resume and cover letter I was able to nail that job(internship) at enterprise.
I don’t know all the details yet but I did get the “official” call today telling I got the job(internship). Again it was out of 342 applicants in my area they picked me!!
So i’m super excited and will keep you posted on my progress.

Thanks,

Hey Chris,

I was a client of Fred’s back in March/April of 2010 and I had you and him help me look for jobs in the pharmaceutical/medical device field, and I wanted to let you know that thanks to Fred’s brilliant resume writing, I landed a job in pharmaceutical sales with a Johnson & Johnson through a contract sales organization back in August of 2010. Before contacting Resume Etc, I had been applying for a job in this industry for nearly a year and a half with literally no interviews. Within a month after submitting my new resume I had interviews with Staples and Ricoh for outside sales, and within 3 months I had 4 other interviews with pharmaceutical companies. Finally, in August I was picked up by Quintiles and assigned a sales role within Johnson & Johnson that completely met all my requirements for my career.

I am writing this email to thank Resumes Etc. for helping me find a career in such a tough economy. I also had a question in regards to my resume. I was curious if Resumes Etc. could update my resume to add my current position. I am not sure what to include in my resume to highlight my current job responsibilities and the drugs I’m currently selling. From what I remember, Fred had mentioned that any additions to my resume may be included in the price I had paid him when I first contacted Resumes Etc. Any information regarding this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Ryan Rende

Hello,

I did my resume with you guys a little while ago. I am not sure if you remember me but I am the Peruvian guy who graduated from Western Connecticut State University and did my resume and cover letter with you. I am just writing you to tell you about the success I had finding a job with the resume you gave me. Before I was sending hundreds of resumes and had only one call. After you gave me the resume and cover letter you edited for me I started sending them everywhere and after couple of weeks I got 2 interviews. While I was going through the interview process I received another call from Prudential. This was very exciting for me because before I had no chance to get an interview. Finally after 4 weeks and after 4 interviews with the same firm I secured a full time job as a Cash Analyst in a hedge Fund called IIG in Time Square, NYC.

Thank You again.

You delivered an inspiring and memorable speech, exceeding all expectations. I was very uneasy about delivering this speech. You coached me through it and put me at ease. You were able to portray a side of me that my colleagues have never seen. I heard comments like: “That was the best speech I have ever heard.” and “This guy is going places.” My upper management were very impressed with the content. I wanted to express my gratitude and thank you again. I will definitely tell all my friends and colleagues about Resumes Etc. You’re The Man!!

Dear Fred and Staff,

It wasn’t easy but I finally was able to secure a job with JP Morgan/Chase. Having sent out over 150 resumes there were times I felt lost and hopeless. Many days when no responses would come I would remember you telling me to stay the course and forge forward. I truly believe without your help in creating a quality resume and cover letter, l would never have been able to land this job. You writing ability was only superseded by your insight and positive attitude. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and wish you and your staff the very best.

Regards,

Nick Naglieri

Dear Fred,

I am writing to thank you for exceptional Resume and cover letter you prepared for me. I applied for a position on Wednesday and received a phone call on Friday to schedule a interview. The interviewer informed me that he had received over 100 resumes and only selected seven people to interview. He stated the standard of professionalism, grammar and layout of my resume really impressed him.
I cannot thank you enough for all your help, I have been asked to attend a second interview next week.

Yours Sincerely,

Lisa Hyland

Fred,

Before using your resume and cover letter I was getting no hits. I then sent your resume and cover letter to medical technology companies and almost immediately got a response and was asked to come in for an interview. I just wanted to thank you and I have developed a long term partnership with you as my career gets more intense you will be the first person I will contact.
Thanks!!
Ryan Delaquintana

Fred and Chris,
The resume and cover letter are great. I am extremely pleased with the experience I had working with resumes etc.

Fred and Chris,
I just wanted to let you know that one of the managers for an independent sales company saw my resume online and it resulted in an immediate interview.
thanks, dan

Dear Fred
First of all, let me take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy Happy and Prosperous New Year!
I never realized how important my resume would be! Amidst growing unemployment, I accepted a permanent position in my field today!
The company searched online and found my resume then called me to interview. They said I was exactly who they were looking for!
It’s been a tough road these oh so many months and I truly appreciate your support. Thanks again for your great work. You are an outstanding wordsmith.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Vicky

In 2009 I used a search engine to find a service or an individual to help shape and focus my CV. I fully expected and was prepared for a trial and error experience until I found the right guidance to help me artfully and effectively express my new, merged media background.
After a career in print and broadcast television, in 2005 I was recruited to a senior management position with an emerging technology platform company. Walking in the door early every morning was an experience that was the equivalent of immersion in a new language and a new culture, and I loved it. At the same time I recognized the value of my media and content experiences. My resume didn’t reflect my new life, either in specificity or sensibility.

Presented with list of options, intuition prevailed and I called Alfred first. In our first meeting Alfred was the smart, interested and intuitive professional that I was hoping to find. He quickly matched his thoughts with mine, and with a few questions and a couple of well directed conversations, delivered a document that had much of the same information, but now reflected the new digital world and my enhanced value proposition. During phone and in person conversations Alfred provided , yes, skill and insights, but also an interest and an intuitive, again, grasp both of my history and what I wanted to convey. He also extended the guidance to include suggestions for marketing my experiences and my skill sets, both in terms of business sectors and geographically. The end result was that rare occurrence when delivery actually exceeds expectations.

I wanted to thank you for your help and guidance with my resume and recent job search. I must admit that I was a little skeptical at first about paying someone to write my resume, however, I found that in this day and age, there’s a lot more that goes into a resume than meets the eye. As I discovered, all resumes are scanned electronically prior to even making it into a recruiters hands and if you don’t have those keywords in there, you don’t get eyes looking at it. I am living proof…I had my resume up on “The Ladders” for 2 years and only had 2 recruiters look at it pro-actively. After you re-wrote it for me, I had 23 recruiters look at it in a 3 month time period! This greatly increased the number of opportunities that I was able to consider and eventually led to the new job that I just accepted. I also wanted to add that your guidance and instruction on interviewing greatly helped and prepared me for every interview that I went on.
Thanks, again, for your help. It was well worth the money.
Regards, Tommy John

Hi Fred;
I like to take a few minutes to thank you for doing such a great job with my resume and an exceptional cover letter. Though at first I was skeptical but you made a believer out of me. I told you I needed something amazing to help me for an entrance exam to a school that only excepts 10 students at a time. Well you made my resume and cover letter look so good I was excepted without taking the mandatory entrance exam, that is required before being excepted. This news made my week especially being in my 40′s going back to school with people half my age.
Hey! I’m thinking of running for mayor since becoming so assured with myself, but only if you write my campaign speeches. We can do this!
Again thank you, sincerely
Nancy Berrios

Alfred,
When we first met, resume etc stressed the fact that there clients are family and that you really care about each and every customer. Since then I have called you countless times, both day and evenings and you have always been available to guide me through the job search process. Your level of customer excellence is off the charts. As the former vice president of a company, I realize how rare it is to find a business with values.
Thank you so much.
Gary Avrick

Dear Fred,
I am writing to express my sincerest thanks for an exceptional job on my cover letter and resume. You took a mediocre resume that I had written and transformed it into a polished professional one. I can’t tell you what a difference this has made. I am now receiving telephone calls and e-mails from companies wanting to contact me.
I’ve had a vice president from a major company tell me that he was going to pass my cover letter around as an example of what to write to “intrigue someone” because it was so well written. One interviewer told me that my resume was “incredible” and one of the best he’s seen in a long time. Another vice president stated that he could tell that I was a detailed oriented person just from reading my resume. Having Resumes Etc. write a professional resume and cover letter for me was the best investment I made with regards to my career change. When it comes time for a promotion or a new job opportunity, rest assured that I will be returning. Again, many thanks. For once I am confident that I will receive a job offer in the near future.
Regards,
Jenna Phoenix

Hello,

I am a senior bank executive with a Fortune 50 company. I have been working with Mr. Mariani of Resumes Etc. since I began my career as a low level employee.
His guidance and support has resulted in my ability to move to other banks in higher level positions, while also getting me internal promotions. I can say without reservations, that my career success was due in large part to Resumes Etc. When you read Mr. Mariani’s profile/background, you can see why he is heads above his competition.

Do yourself a big favor and work with Mr. Mariani, it will be the best decision you have ever made. His intellect and knowledge is at a level that is off the charts.
Thanks Fred for all of your help!

Warm Regards,
David R.

Dear Fred,
I apologize for not sending this letter in a timely manner. One week after our initial meeting, I sent out 250 resumes. Your help and guidance, complete with resume building and interview questioning skills, landed me three calls from elementary school Principals. My cover letter and resume combined with my experience has made me become a highly qualified applicant and candidate for their team. I went on two interviews and within two days I was offered a job as a fulltime paraprofessional at Burr Elementary School in Fairfield, CT. This respectable position will give me time to fulfill my certification requirements and give me extensive experience with Special Education students.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration, and thanks for the motivation and encouragement to secure desirable employment.
Sincerely,
Kaitlin Priest

Hello!
Just wanted to let you know that I recently spoke with an HR Rep at the company where I am doing an internship this summer and he complimented me on a great resume! He held a class on resume writing and asked if he could show it to the class as an example of “what a good resume looks like.” Thanks so much for all of your help!

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all over the last year with my search.
I have recently accepted a wonderful position as the Executive Assistant to the CFO at The Nielsen Company and will be starting this coming Wednesday. Luckily for me, the recognized my years of experience and talent over (unfortunately) not having a degree.
I believe this will be a long and happy endeavor as I believe there is great karma around it … I accepted just a few days prior to my birthday, and I will be starting on what would have been my father’s birthday.
Thank you all again!
Warm regards,
Carol Koenig

Fred,
Thank you for all your efforts. I have found a position I am happy with. The resume was key. Thanks again!
Steven R Franco

Fred,
I am getting interviews! Thanks to your cover letter, I am getting interviews. More “responders” than not comment that the cover letter and resume are motivating them to follow up with me.
This is something that has come about in the past week or so. Obviously, the job market is having a slight warming trend!
Just wanted you to know.
Best,
Vicky Sicilian

Fred,

Three resumes – three jobs
I am a true believer as they would say. I first used the services of Resumes Etc. in 1998 after a job search that had been long and fruitless. I had no idea what I was doing wrong and could not get my foot in any door. I had work experience, education and references but something was wrong. Someone gave me the name of Resumes Etc. and Fred Mariani. A new resume and the phone rang, within weeks I accepted a position with a company that I held for nine years.

Nine years later I was back at Resumes Etc. and telling Fred that it was time to move on for financial reasons. The resume got me in the door of a leading handbag and small accessory manufacturer/retailer. I ended up getting an offer for 10% higher than was my bottom line.

Marching forward to 2009 and the toughest job market in twenty-five years, I walked into Fred’s office and told him I could not longer stand the commute from Milford to Norwalk and had to get closer. That was late summer 2009 and in December, 2009 I landed the new position in Milford with a step up the ladder and a salary increase.

Each resume has been crafted to highlight my talents and put me in the best possible light. They snapshot who I am as a professional and the skills I bring to the company. They get me in the DOOR. They open the DOOR, if the DOOR is not open, I do not get the chance to sell myself.

Fred sets you up in the best possible light and I have sent numerous people to him and never hesitate to recommend him.
Phyllis Cohen

Dear Fred:

I just wanted to thank you for helping me re-vamp my resume. I sent it out one evening to an advertisement I was interested in and by 9:30 the next morning I had a phone call and an e-mail from the employer wanting to set up an interview with me sooner than later. I had the interview this week and it went very well, the company is making a final decision by Friday. Whether or not I get this particular job, I know that I have an excellent resume that is getting me in the door and landing me interviews until the right one comes along!

Thanks again, I will definitely recommend your services to friends and family!

Sincerely,
Jessica C. Buturla

Fred and Chris,

Thanks so much for your resume, power cover letter, internet job search, and interview skills. I got a ton of interviews and a great job offer with more money, even during a recession. This is the second time you guys have done a great job for me. You guys are the best.

Thank you,
Robert B. Allen

I managed to find a job 6 months ago in a consulting firm in Stamford. Your resume’ definitely did the job….even in this bad economy. I have to hit the lotto. J

THANKS

Fred,
