JoAnn - Is a consummate professional resume and livelihood developer who makes it her top job to throughly understand the hopes, dreams, desires, and needs of each client she serves. Thank you for helping me develop the potential future that awaits me!Sep 8, 2019VerifiedNew Vistas Career Coaching and Resume Writing's reply
Jeff, the distance between us was of little consequence. It brought back many fond memories of living in "The Desert." Thank you for being receptive to ideas, formatting, and for your patience. Military-speak can be a language unto itself, but you took the time to "spin me up." I enjoyed collaborating on your 3 distinct resumes; you are now ready to return stateside and begin another chapter in your career story. Thank you for letting me be a part of your journey. Safe travels and Welcome Back!!
JoAnn knows just how to interview you in such a way as to draw out the essence of who you are as a person. And then she has the ability to translate that essence into words on the page so that she conveys an accurate picture of your qualities. She worked tirelessly and put quite a bit of work into my resume and cover letter. Her price cannot be beat for the amount of work she put in. I highly recommend her!Jan 11, 2019VerifiedNew Vistas Career Coaching and Resume Writing's reply

Leatha, what a joy to work with you! You are a forward thinking and proactive healthcare director! I wish you all the best as you begin a new career. The patients and staff will thrive under your leadership!
I received many contacts for a resume writer. But, I chose JoAnn (even though she was not the cheapest) because the response I received from her was very detailed on what she could do for me. We had a brief conversation on the phone which was just about what to expect from her. Then, another longer conversation about my current resume and items I wanted to focus on, along with items that could be combined or removed. She responded in a timely manner. And, her work is top notch.Feb 20, 2019VerifiedNew Vistas Career Coaching and Resume Writing's reply
Dawn, thank you for this sincere review and mentioning price. I know I'm not the least expensive and sometimes price is the biggest consideration, but it appears you made the decision based on my process and customer service. I wish you all the best. Your Technology Project Management skills shine!!
Jo Ann is easy to work with. She understood what changes my resume needed and she made sure she made those changes and upgrades. She made my resume look much more presentable than before. Exactly what I needed:)Apr 29, 2019VerifiedNew Vistas Career Coaching and Resume Writing's reply
Iram, I learned a great deal working on your resume: Information Systems-Cyber Security/ Executive Assistant Expertise. Your desire to learn as much as you can about Cyber Security will make you an asset to any organization that values determination and ambition. You are a self-starter and motivated to give it your all! All the best in your bright future. JoAnn
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My resume service is a set fee, as quoted, and covers one hour + in a face to face or phone session with the purpose of discussing various aspects of a client's career. There may be times, during the initial complimentary session, when it becomes apparent that the scope of work, resume and cover letter entails more time and research; a new quote may be necessary. We discuss job postings and the fit we must illustrate. It's important to give the perspective employer a focused impression of how the job seeker excels, their knowledge, experience, and how they can help an organization problem solve. I draft a focused, branded resume that allows the client to set themselves a part from the competition by highlighting their particular skill set. ********************************************************************* In interview preparation we discuss a meaningful "hook" to illustrate personal strengths, abilities and achievements. The responses to the usual dreaded questions: Why should we hire you? What are your strengths? Your weaknesses? Tell be about a time you.....Preparation helps with confidence and leaving the interviewer with a clear picture of your strong candidacy. Clients are able to clearly demonstrated WHY they should be paid at the higher range because of their skills, abilities and knowledge. Added confidence and detailed responses get closer to Hired. Payment options: Cash, check, credit ($6 fee), and PayPal.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I offer a free 20 minute consultation to a potential client to help them see if I'm the right fit to help them best meet their resume or career needs. If we decide to work together, we schedule a session for an in-depth review of their current resume and discuss formats that are chosen by APS software and recruiters. Using job posting requirements ensure a focused document that stands above the rest. This process can take from 70-90 minutes. Next, I draft the resume and begin to revise where needed.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I belong to California Career Development Association and National Career Development Association. I read many online career information blogs to stay current and up to date on labor market trends.
