"Dear Nancy - I want to take some time to tell you how much I appreciate the resume you created for me. Your questions, your ability to take my answers and mold them into a remarkable resume was nothing less than astounding. I would never hesitate to recommend you to any close friend or family. Again, thank you for a truly professional effort"
RICHARD W – CFO: GLOBAL NON PROFITS – NYC
"Working with Nancy made me realize what I had accomplished as an HR professional, not just where I was employed!"
Ed H. – Human Resources: Medical Center & Hospital Management – NYC
"I previously used an expensive resume service along with a LinkedIn Profile update and I was disappointed with the service. One career counselor mentioned writing all my accomplishments in the STAR format for interview questions and also be a starting point for the resume.
I gave them almost the same information provided to you and did not see a lot of change. Your approach and working together, writing everything out may take some time, especially vs. having someone else do all the work... But people may not realize what a good explanation your coaching looks and sounds like, as you coach the customer through their writing for the resume and interview prep.
I believe the new resume has helped. I already got 3 interviews out of it and am hoping for more."
Vickie G. – Engineering – Pennsylvania
"I was referred to The Fairy JobMother by a friend who read about her in the paper and was excited with her resume– she got interviews and was hired for a new job with a major company! I needed to update my resume but I didn't realize how much change was required to make it competitive.
Now, when someone reads my new resume, they are reading about me and what I have accomplished. It list positions that I have had but more importantly informs a prospective employer my strengths, accomplishments, and how I made a positive impact.
And now when I read my own resume, I am impressed about what I have accomplished and can pass that on to future employers. I now have much more confidence and information about myself and what I can bring to their organization.
I am just starting my relocation search and she also provided some relocation strategies that I would of never thought about. Nancy truly is a Fairy JobMother!"
Denise B. – Legal – Pennsylvania
"With the level of talent in the job market today, it’s tougher than ever to stand out from the crowd. Thanks to Nancy, my new resume is opening doors and I’m getting more attention from hiring managers. She thoroughly reviewed my current resume, and during an in-depth one-on-one consultation, helped me identify what’s unique about me. She suggested a new approach – one I hadn’t thought of -- and helped me craft a compelling marketing document that highlights what I can do for an employer. What I most appreciated was her thorough preparation, independent perspective, and personal attention. The result far exceeded my expectations – not an easy thing to do!"
Lisa C. – Engineering & Technology Marketing – Chicago
"Thank you Nancy for taking my overgrown and unwieldy resume and pruning it into a faithful and, more importantly, marketable representation of my skills and experience. Talk about a win-win! Your intuitive and honest approach, even if it takes some "pruning" and coaching, is invaluable... no doubt that the ripple effects of your generous, invested, informed style is felt all throughout the candidates you work with each and every day."
Kathleen E. – Technology & Data Services – Nashville
"My experience with Nancy was fantastic, if not cathartic. She really took the time to discuss my goals and expectations and worked with me to turn my resume into a true representation of what I was all about, rather than just a laundry list of accomplishments! The process helped remind me that I am an experienced professional that is capable of great things, and now my resume actually reflects that. Thanks again."
Michael F. – Construction Engineering & Sales – New York
"Thanks so much for your creative guidance this weekend. It's really re-framed my search, in a very good way. I just sent my resume in to a position here in Boston, with a cover letter that said "here are the kinds of problems I can solve for you...." Got phone-interviewed within 2 hours, and will meet the principals on Friday."
Scott S. – Biotechnology Attorney – Boston
"Your resume has one goal - to stand out from the dozens and hundreds of other resumes so that you attract the attention of the screener and the hiring decisionmaker. Absolutlely no one can create a great resume without an expert's help. Nancy will present your strengths and accomplishments so that you're noticed."
Jim S. – Non-Profit – New York City
"The work I did with Nancy in reworking my resume was like nothing else I had ever done before in terms of creating a professional profile... She led me through the process and she made me think holistically about me as a professional and as an individual... It's almost as if she has an invisible scope that looks into you and leads you into creating a resume that is a story about yourself and not just a collection of dates and experiences... And this was done over the phone! One has to do the actual writing work, but with her leadership the final product is amazing."
Tony D. – Business Development – Pennsylvania
"You were absolutely the BEST career counselor that I have ever worked with in my 30 years in business. You are a brilliant strategist when highlighting and matching experience with targeted positions... and helping me learn about myself! I absolutely LOVED working with Nancy and having her on my side!"
Lisa W. – Customer Relationship Management – Detroit
"I highly recommend Nancy, theresumedoctor, if you or someone you know is looking to create, improve, update and/or focus how to present their skills and accomplishments in a resume. Her 20+ years as an executive recruiter gives her the unique ability to cut through all the extraneous "stuff" and get to what really makes you a valuable asset. Her process not only results in a great resume, but will hone your ability to sell your accomplishments to hiring executives in an interview."
Jim M. – Digital And Technology – Dallas
"I thought I had a good resume but Nancy showed how with simple clarifications and restatements I could make it much stronger. Sometimes she had to give me "tough love" but the result was a cleaner, more compelling document . My new resume greatly impressed my career coach who had been "pleased" with the previous version. She was great to work with and I would strongly recommend her to anyone who wants truly personalized resume assistance, not a formulaic approach."
Lisa S. – Media – New York City
"Media I know – resume construction, not so much. Even though I thought I had a adequate resume, with a few "writing assignments" from Nancy I now have a detailed, professional document which showcases my abilities and has served me well."
Debbie D. – Media – Pennsylvania
"Nancy's talent and consulting on resume execution and management is unparalleled. Her coaching during my career transition was key to my success in securing a marketing management position within a Fortune 500 company. She has an intuitive art of translating and positioning candidates' qualifications into proper strategic words and resume format, thus allowing for increased probabilities in obtaining interviews."
