Joseph at Competitive Edge walked me through the resume writing process and was very thorough in explaining how the process worked. He really listened to me and really wanted to know what I am looking for in my next job.

Miranda did such a fantastic job drawing out the highlights in my career and rebranding my experience that I almost didn’t even recognize myself! She challenged me to rethink how I communicate my accomplishments and expand my marketability to roles I never would have considered myself for. I now have a brand new confidence as I boldly change my career path. When I debuted the new resume she did for me with a top-tier C.E.O., she was so impressed that she said I would be offered a job at any company I applied for in 30 seconds. And in just the first few days of having my new LinkedIn profile Miranda did for me up and running I already have more recruiters viewing and contacting me. I highly recommend Morley Career Solutions. It is a great investment in your career and future!

I was very nervous to begin this process and struggled with the first step of asking for help regarding my career. I’m so glad I began these steps and Sandra helped make my resume restructuring an enjoyable and informative opportunity. She was incredibly patient and professional and even took the time to meet with me for over an hour to get to know me, helping her craft my resume more effectively. I would recommend her to anyone and will use her again if I need any more writing help.

Writing is very painful for me. Laura worked with me to help get my message across in a beautiful way. I would definitely work with her again since she was so patient and engaged in the work.

I had the pleasure of working with Anna for 3 years during her time as Marketing / SM Director for our company. Her writing and creativity abilities are extremely unique and always drove unexpected results for all the clients under her wing. Remember that Oregon Trail Generation article that went viral and got over a million shares? Yeah... that was her!!! Don't miss out!

I was taught by Jack in my college. He helped me a lot, not only in my study, but also gave me a lot of instructions and suggestions in my future options. When I applied for my master degree, he helped me search informations about different universities and majors and wrote me recommendation letter. Also he really made a lot contribution to my college, which is North American college Jiangnan University. He got up early every morning to help those who study English in the morning, help them speaking, reading and pronunciation. I really appreciate his help, with his help I successfully enrolled in Australia National University, majoring in master of actuarial studies.

I initially experienced Tammy's writing coaching as a participant in her "Crafting and Inspirational Blog" class. Her teaching style is dynamic and experiential, giving great examples for the concepts she teaches and then encouraging her students to try their hand at it. Her follow-up and suggestions are always beneficial. My experience with that class was so great that I hired Tammy. We meet over the phone weekly to edit my newsletter articles. When I am struggling to find the words for what I want to say, she asks exactly the right questions to enable me to find those words. And, when I'm having a hard time coming up with a topic, we brainstorm ideas. In addition, Tammy writes a weekly newsletter with writing tips that help solidify what I am learning. The process is always full of learning and fun. Tammy is absolutely fabulous in every way!

Solid work. Analyzed key words and writes content rich articles. Sometime it takes a few months for google to crawl and register but I’ve been extremely happy.

Cindy is the best of the best! She is someone you just want to get to know. She handled everything so beautifully and led us through it each step of the way. Our wedding was better than we could have ever hoped for! She made the entire wedding so personal and even wrote the most incredible poem about our lives together. We are going to have it framed as a lifelong reminder! With Cindy performing our marriage, we always felt comfortable that everything was in control and would go well - and believe me, that's a great feeling! After all, your wedding is your most important day! Cindy doesn't only have a lot of experience marrying people, but she has been a speaker for years! So she is very used to talking to big crowds. This was so wonderful, because she came across so natural, she could be heard well, and really knew how to "present" the ceremony so that it all comes off without a problem. She is also great for those awkward "on the spot" moments where no one knows what to do or say. (We had one of those with my mother-in-law, but Cindy handled it beautifully!) Everyone was so pleased and very impressed. She led us through our rehearsal so we all knew what to do and what to expect. She helped us to write our vows without being intrusive or pushy. She was sooooo helpful! She organized our music for us, helped us to chose readings and just put together and overall ceremony that blew us away! Oh, and she also created our wedding bulletins! They were really awesome! I just loved them!!! I will recommend Cindy to everyone (and do). She is that on-in-a-million type of person you just hope will come into your life. We will always be grateful that she came into ours!!!!
