    When I reached out to Matt I thought my resume was pretty good. I was concerned why I wasn't getting any interviews so I thought it may need some tweaking. After working with Matt for a short time he sent me the rough draft of resume and cover letter. I thought there was maybe "too much" on the resume because it was very different from my "pretty good" resume. He asked me to trust him so I did. Well, I am thrilled I listened to Matt and his great advice. I have had multiple interviews and already 2 job offers. THANK YOU so much Matt!!

    Matt has been extremely helpful with my job search! I can't thank him enough for sharing his amazing resources and knowledge in regards to starting my career. He was basically on call, quickly responding to any question I had about interviews, my resume, cover letter, etc. He was also sure to not sugar-coat anything, telling me what I needed to hear not want to hear. I highly recommend using his services.

    I would say our first passes were good, but when i suggested making some changes based on some credible sources including one potential employer, he shot down the ideas. At that point, I ended our agreement, 3 days early.

    Tom, thanks for the comments. As mentioned, you hired me to provide my expert professional opinion. When I gave you this opinion, you disagreed and decided to side with your potential employer and we agreed to disagree. In my defense I provided you with exactly what you hired me to do. In the end you agreed you came out with a 100% better looking resume than when we started. I wish you the best of luck with your search.

    After having Matt write my resume, I waited to see the results before writing this review. Now that I've received 2 job offers within just 2 months of applying, I can confidently say that Matt is great at what he does. We butted heads a couple of times at first, but that's just because I didn't trust him right away. Trust him. He knows what he's doing and will serve you well. Thanks Matt!

    Matt has a very good work around! He did a resume within 24 hours and I’m very happy about it. I just recently had him write and edit my resume. It was really good and I’m happy with the final outcome. I had no issues on the outcome of the work. He’s definitely commendable as a resume writer!

    Matthew is quick and accurate. He made my resume and it was great! We only worked for about 3 days which shows that he is prompt and always available. I think I’d recommend him to other people who would like to have an excellent resume.

    Matt had done a terrific website for me. He also did an excellent logo design, business card and a banner. I’ve had so many complements in his work with our customers! The qualities that he best possesses as a service provider is being artistic, articulate, timely, gets things done quickly and professional. What makes him different amongst others is his being creative and knowledgeable—putting these qualities together makes it a very professional job with high work ethics. What is totally exclusive to Matt is that he listens to what I’m looking for; he doesn’t stop till he achieves what I want! I will greatly recommend him to everyone who asks for his expertise!
