Testimonials

 Janice is OUTSTANDING!  She did an excellent job drilling down and pulling out the details, preparing a grabbing, high-performance resume that has led to 4 interviews in the past 2 weeks.  I am extremely happy with Janice's efforts, results and performance.  She was very professional.  I would without hesitation or reservation HIGHLY recommend!

Operations Manager, $100+ million manufacturer

 

Janice was wonderful!  I feel she was able to capture my skill set and present them in a way that will make me the best choice from an employer's point of view.  She was succinct and utilized our time efficiently and was great with revisions.  I would highly recommend her and this process to my peers.

Supply Chain and Outsourcing Manager, $1.6 billion NYSE company

 

Janice's resume brings in three times the calls that my previous resume secured in cases where I sent it out to specific opportunities.  My old resume got no interest on online posts.  I am now getting at least one "reach" a day.

I have already gotten compliments on the resume.  The resume created a strong value proposition and highlighted my strengths.  I would hire myself!

I was very impressed with the resume process.  Janice pulled information from me and translated it to real results.  In taking an outsiders view of a successful career, Janice was able to define it in clear finite terms.  This was my goal.

Books for Consideration

Do you ever find it difficult deciding what , amongst the thousands of books, would be best for you to read? If you've been on-line or walked into a bricks and mortar book store recently you may have the feeling of being overwhelmed. Perhaps the list below will help. This list is not inclusive, nor is it a recommendation, only a list of some of the more talked about books.

While granted some books are better than others, it is somewhat relative, for it is my belief that any and all books have some value. If you walk away with just one idea that you can use-well, you are one idea richer. Enjoy!
