Michael is efficient, professional and genuine. He takes the time to ask questions specific to your career goals. From there, he produces a resumé guaranteed to get results. After working with Michael, the rate in which I was contacted by potential employers doubled. After a month, I was hired by a local hospital. Highly recommend Michael!Aug 15, 2017VerifiedMichael L.'s reply
May I use your last name for my testimonials on my website?
Not what I expected at all. It seems like he googled a a cover letter and sent it to me .Mar 29, 2017VerifiedMichael L.'s reply
I'm sorry you feel that way. I do think there was some miscommunication. Talk to me if you'd like to resolve any issues. Best wishes.
