WANT TO GET STARTED NOW? HERE'S HOW
"YOU ARE GOOD!"
I'm incorporating every suggestion. Thanks, yet again,
for producing a (hopefully) job-winning resume and tweaking my cover letter.
I truly enjoyed our working relationship and hope to have an opportunity to see you
and/or work with you again."
"MY FANTASTIC NEW RESUME"
got me an interview right away and I started here this week…
Thanks again for your help. Both the rewrite of my resume
and our counseling session really helped get me here!"
what a way with words.
I think this is really perfect for me."
"I THINK THIS RESUME IS TERRIFIC"
and it is really unbelievable how you put this together."
"Part resume writer, part career counselor, and part therapist"
Barri really took the time to listen, digest and offer practical solutions while I was in a transitional time in my career. Barri delivered an excellent, on-point work product that bore results in a matter of weeks. I am grateful for her time and effort, and would highly recommend her career counseling and resume writing services."
"WORKING WITH BARRI LITERALLY CHANGED MY LIFE
As a stay-at-home mom for over 15 years, my ‘work’ experience included volunteer roles at my children’s schools, my place of worship and my co-op. I had a keen desire to re-enter the paid workforce but could not objectively analyze my strengths, skills and what types of jobs would be a good fit and value my experience. Barri’s extensive knowledge, naturally warm manner and keen questioning was the perfect combination to ascertain who I was, what made me tick and what were my core skills. Along the way, she boosted my confidence and allowed me to value myself in a new way. And then there was the incredible resume Barri developed! I can still remember my chain of reactions when I read it for the first time: disbelief, awe, pride and finally, a sense of calm. How she cogently and accurately expressed my years of volunteer experiences and skills in a way that made me attractive to a paying employer is beyond my abilities. Barri’s coaching coupled with her professional resume writing landed me the job I wanted!"
