About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I interview every person asking a lot of questions to make sure we can put the most important KSA's (Knowledge, Skills, and Achievements) on their resume. Too often as I'm speaking with someone they will tell me something that is of added value and yet it's not on their resume. Example: I don't know if this is important to put on my resume but I was able to obtain $80K in services from a vendor for our non-profit organization. This is added value that companies want to see.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Helping others in transition, those looking to get ahead in their careers or the student that is going out into the world and has never worked before of if they have very little. It gives me great joy to know that I am helping others in this tough job market and economy.

    Not quite the service I expected. I had a tight timeline (3.5 days) and was not given my items on time even after I granted an extension. Pretty much was just reformatting my resume, as the word choices for impact words on my resume were not as good as I thought they would be, not tailored to my industry. I supplied most of the word. For the cost, I would not do it again. Overall not very satisfied.

    It's a great resume and presentation I gave you a 3 page resume rather than the two-page resume that was paid for as you seem to want everything still put into the resume making it challenging to get it to two pages. I believe you have a great cover letter reference list and letterhead. Some of that language I used was taken directly from another pharmaceutical sales rep resume which is the industry in which you refer to and that person was thrilled with his resume. I've also done other pharmaceutical sales rep resumes who have been very pleased with their resume. I never should have promised to get it to you when I did and I apologize for that I will never do that again as I tell people I put you in the cue after people not ahead of other orders and the turnaround time is 3 to 4 business days anymore it's going to be like a lot of others it's going to be 7 to 10 business days will be my new policy so that I do not run into this situation again. I cannot put people ahead of other orders again. I will not do that. If I can't get it done for someone in the next couple of days I will tell the person that and they will have to take their business elsewhere.

    Maureen helped me revamp my resume. After teaching for 20 years, it was time to enter the real world of jobs. Maureen took my experiences and translated them into appropriate terms for my new job quest. I appreciated the time Maureen took to get to know me, as she was able to tailor the resume to reflect who I am.

    I needed to get a great resume put together fast. Maureen met with me right away, spent time breaking down my credentials, and set up a perfect resume for me.

    Maureen is the best resume professional I've ever worked with. She was very helpful and continued to be of service to me long after the original resume was complete. I would highly recommend her for anyone seeking assistance with their resume!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing is not complicated as I have different packages to choose from.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I constantly watch the trends through the news media and other publications.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've always enjoyed writing and was a stay at home mom when me son was a toddler, he'll turn 21 next week, and although I loved being at home with him I needed some adult interaction so I researched resume writing and the rest is history. It gave me time to be with my son but also to be with adults. I'm a people person.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have completed a lot of military personnel in transition, IT professionals, executives, teachers, administrative assistants, and accountants.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A senior in high school contacted me and although it took her a little while to get the money together for the resume package she is very glad she did and can't thank me enough for all the doors her resume package opened up for her. She just accepted a job offer at $21/hour, plus benefits. This is just one of my success stories. She is glad she invested in herself.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Come meet with me, see the different resume packages I have, the documents you need to self-market yourself, and I believe you'll understand the benefits.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
It's a very competitive job market out there. I am not an online service that says, "submit your resume and we'll make recommendations." You make the changes they suggest after submitting your resume and the next thing you know they're saying you need to make more changes. Don't settle for a template or "standard" resume like what you've been used to. Invest in your future with a professional who has your best interest at heart.
