Our client's taste of success
Client Success Manager
I connected with Aaron when I knew my resume wasn't getting the results I needed. A good resume shouldn't just list your background, it should tell your story and entice the reader to reach out to you.
Having a properly proofed resume produced immediate results. Returned emails, callbacks, and competing offers became a frequent event - not just a wish.
I would highly recommend Aaron's services to anyone looking for assistance with resume writing, defining a narrative, or narrowing their focus on specific career elements. His inquisitive nature and realistic approach has helped countless others.
I am incredibly grateful for the skillfully crafted professional resume that Aaron wrote for me.
Aside from the high-quality product he delivered, Aaron was a genuine pleasure to work with.
He was friendly and helpful through the process, and the resulting resume gave me the confidence to transition out of the only industry I had ever worked in.
Consultant, Project Management Profession
In the first 2 months of my job search, I only had two initial interviews. After working with Aaron on my resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile I was able to interview much more frequently. In the two months after Aaron’s revitalization of my application materials, I received over 15 initial interview requests.
Aaron’s eye for practical structure and thoughtful approach to meaningful narrative throughout the materials is easily the reason I found myself interviewing for experienced project manager jobs.
I highly recommend Aaron’s services and benefited greatly from them.
