Customer Reviews

Feedback to JC Resumes customer from a corporate recruiter: “Your cover letter and resume are excellent. I know it is always a challenge to pull these together, especially when you are first transitioning out and unsure how best to convey your experience in the civilian sector. However, as someone that receives and reviews hundreds of veteran’s resumes on a recurring basis, I just wanted to let you know that yours are exceptionally well done and you should be confident that they represent you well.”
– M. Collier, Virginia Becah, VA

“A hiring manager at (confidential company), and my classmate from College who works there and submitted it for me, were both truly impressed. The manager said that it was the best one he’s seen in years, and my enthusiasm leaped off the page. I am interviewing at (confidential company) next week, and also at another large company, for the program manager position. Fingers crossed!”
– C. Loveland

“When my son was looking for his first job, I wanted to help him get a good one. I arranged for his résumé to be written by JC Résumés.

“When I first applied for my first job 5 years ago, I was blessed to have a friend who helped write my résumé for me. When I had to apply for a different job, I found myself at a loss on how to update my résumé. I found JC Résumés and I was relieved to see that they offered just the kind of service that I needed. The thoroughness I saw in their sample work was clearly evident in the résumé that they were able to craft for me.”
– Larry J., Chemist

“I was a stay-at-home mom for seven years. When my kids grew old enough to be in school and at extracurricular activities, I decided to go back to work. I didn’t want to just get any job when I had such a lucrative career before. I could not have done it without the help of the staff at JC Résumés. They were very prompt in contacting me and were helpful in giving me feedback based on the draft résumé I sent them. They researched the career path I was interested in before I got married to see if I could still make a go with it after being gone for several years. That was several months ago. I have now rejoined the workforce and am earning more than enough for my family. Thanks!”
– E. H., Portland, OR

“My husband had serious doubts on how hiring professional help for revising a résumé would help him get out of that dead-end job he had. I insisted he had nothing to lose. JC Résumés got in touch with him and after several consultations and one outstanding résumé later, my husband has received three job offers, two of which he never imagined he was qualified for. I saw my husband transform from being very irritable to a person who laughed easily. Many thanks.”

– Jenny V., Pocatello, ID

This revision led to four job interviews that were either at the same level as my work or better. Thanks for the help.”

“I could not believe how fast my college friend landed a job right after graduation. I knew we were at least equal in terms of skills and experience but she already had a job, whereas I still had yet to hear from even one company for an interview. I asked her what helped her and she gave me the contact information for JC Résumés. She encouraged me to use their services so that I could also get that job that I want. After my initial consultation with them, I didn’t have any doubt that they truly helped my friend land her job. Their revision of my résumé plus the cover letter they made looked so professional yet it was tailored to my personality. In two weeks, I noticed a change. Job interviews came and now, I too, am proud to say that I have the job that I want.”
– Tonya D., Administrative Assistant

“I was a housewife for 10 years and did not think that I would be able to rejoin the workforce that quickly, but when I called JC Résumés and saw how J. Melissa could help me touch up my outdated résumé, I knew I shouldn’t waste time. In 6 weeks, I was able to get a job that made it worth my while to give up staying at home with my family and at the same time gave me career fulfillment.”
– Kendra W., Ann Arbor, MI

“Many of my college friends were content with entry-level jobs, but after a good internship at an accounting office, I could not understand why I should settle for that. I decided to seek professional help and the staff at JC Résumés did not fail me. They gave me tips on what companies look for in potential employees and gave me feedback on how I can make my résumé more appropriate for the job I wanted. How can you go wrong when you have people who were truly concerned that you get the job you want? In a matter of six weeks, I had 4 interviews lined up, two of which came from companies I’ve always thought of working for. Writing a résumé is easy, but writing one that actually gets you the job you want is what JC Résumés did for me.
– Andrew Z., Baltimore, MD

Within a month, I had two offers both above than the level I had been working at, with compensation for the skills I have to offer.”

– Simone E., New York, NY

“Sometimes we tend to think that just as managers, we won’t have problems writing a decent résumé. When I sat down to write one, I didn’t know where to start. I had so much work experience, I did not know what to include and what not to. Some of my positions were wordy and irrelevant. I knew I was on the right track after my consultation with J. Melissa. The questions she asked made me understand what professional help really means. The feedback she gave based on the questionnaire I answered really helped me fine-tune my résumé. She knows what she’s doing and I have complete faith that what she has helped me come up with has given me a more competitive edge.”
– Bill M., Branch Manager

– G. B., Edmonds, WA

I truly am thankful for her service. I know it was instrumental in getting me my current job.”

But when times got hard and my business began to incur debts rather than profits, I had to reassess my options.

Her assistance was very thorough and her comments greatly enhanced the resulting résumé that I wanted in order to apply for a lucrative position in an allied industry.”

“For a long time, I have been working for a company that I felt was not recognizing my hard work but I have been afraid to risk changing employers, what with the current state of our economy and all that. But after consultation with J. Melissa, I realized that I really have a lot to offer to others who would be willing to compensate me better for my skills. After our initial consultation, J. Melissa helped me see that my strengths are valuable and that I deserve to get paid well for my hard work.
