"I recommend Carol for your needs in exploring all employments opportunities not just in the oil and gas sector but also beyond those confines. I am an officer in the United States Army Reserves. I am a custom to the “Mentor, Coach, and Teach” concept. My first meeting with Carol this is what I received. She was instrumental in preparing me to lay the groundwork for a journey into exploring my employment options for the next 20 years. Her sound advice not only motivated me to review all my options but also gave me the tools to prepare my family to discuss the possible steps toward my future. Furthermore, after our initial meeting the follow-ups are enjoyable. I think Carol has a deep grasp of what the current employers are looking for in resumes. Her approach to adjusting a biography and resume to current human resource tactics, techniques, and procedures are transcendent. I believe that after working with her you will be better prepared to stand out amongst your peers. In conclusion, her advice has prepared me for both civilian and military careers. I advise you spend the time to meet with her. The session is well worth it."

"My resume was getting me nowhere. Carol offered to rebuild it for me and make it ATS compliant. I didn't even know what that was until I learned that my opportunities were being limited by HR software at some recruiters and companies. Beyond this, Carol has given me the tools (resume, cover page, Bio and a new LinkedIn profile ) for me to pursue my career. She even worked over the weekend for me so that I would have what I needed for an opportunity on Monday. The quality of the work is exceptional and well worth the investment for a professional resume. Don't delay, you will be as happy as I am."

"Carol!! I could hug you! You came into our lives at a very crucial moment! See, if it wasn't for you and your team rewriting my husband's resume and cover letter, I may have had to pack up and return to Saskatoon, since it seemed hopeless that he would ever find a suitable job in BC. Although we have yet to submit the new resume and application to the couple of jobs he is enthusiastic about, I feel confident that he will now land a fantastic job and finally move to BC! I'm looking forward to having my husband with me again!
Thanks so much, Carol and Mathew! You guys are simply awesome!!"
- Sanjay P.
"Carol is an angel! She came to my rescue when I was ready to throw in the towel! I wished I had found her services about 5 years ago, when my job hunting efforts in British Columbia started so I could join my family there. I live in Saskatoon while my family moved to BC over 5 years ago, thinking that I would soon join them as well. My wife and I have tried so hard to find me a suitable job, but my applications were ignored so often that we started thinking that BC just didn't have jobs for someone with my qualifications. And the rare times I did get contacted, I was either overqualified, or lacked a bachelor's degree, or the pay was just not going to cut it.
I'm so grateful that Carol entered into my life when I was truly down in the dumps. It's amazing how everything seems to be falling into place now! I found three perfect job opportunities right about the time when I discovered her services. So instead of sending off my old resume and cover letter, my wife and I decided to invest into sprucing up my resume. We went with the complete package (resume, cover letter and making my LinkedIn profile look more professional) since it's being offered at half price currently. We just got the final draft back for both my resume and cover letter, and it has blown us away! My LinkedIn will be updated soon as well.
My future looks very promising now... I mean, I have yet to submit the application to the 3 places I am eyeing, but the way they have written up my resume and cover letter has instantly lifted up my dwindling spirit, and I am confident now that I will land a fantastic job in BC, and that I am finally on my way to reunite with my family there. Bye, bye Saskatoon, it was fun while it lasted, and I will surely miss you and the magical Northern Lights, but I'm off to BC now! The mountains are calling! :D"
- Max P.
"Ah about Carol. After your article The devastating Truth, I adjusted my CV to have no headers and footers and transferred the info into the body of the text of the CV and started receiving offers the next day.

Thank you for the advice. I will follow you on info from now on. Job Well Done!!!"

"I cannot endorse Carol and her firm strongly enough. A consummate professional of the highest order, Carol provides more than a resume writing service. As a coach and mentor describing todays job-hunting market, my eyes were opened to a world I did not know existed. After conversing about the realities facing anyone navigating todays job market, I was left with an honest feeling of hope and encouragement, something I desperately needed. Did I mention my new resume and cover letter totally blew me away?
She is the real deal folks, a real person who genuinely cares about her clients. Need proof? Look no further than the 6 simple steps essay, the question and answer forum, the 50/50 program, and a resume evaluation without even asking for a dime!
I have personally recommended Carol to my friends and associates and will continue to do so with the utmost confidence."

"I've worked alongside Carol on several projects now during this year. I've seen her not only excel at the core elements of her job -- like managing writers, interfacing with clients and resume writing -- but also learn other tasks that extend well beyond the scope of her role, like digital marketing, biography development, and even championing the company's internal communications. That's one of the things that's so remarkable about Carol. She demonstrates not only mastery for her core role, but also the ability to take on new projects that are both difficult and critical to the company's growth. In fact, her taking on internal company communication aligned with a sharp increase in employee happiness. This rare mix of productivity and ambition sets a great example for the rest of the team, and explains why everyone loves working with Carol -- no matter where they fall on the org chart. While Carol's work has continued to pay dividends long past her tenure here, I have only optimistic predictions for her career trajectory."
