Top Shelf Service

I used one of the Find My Profession writers to clean up and modernize my personal documents. The level of knowledge and know-how was stellar. The response was prompt and timely. The writer delivered the product on time and with quality. I was extremely pleased with this service and paid a fraction of what other services charge for similar products and support.

100% Recommend

[Writer] was a pleasure to work with. This was a great experience and investment in myself and career. I always feel overwhelmed by creating or updating my resume and I had no idea how to create one that was suitable for today’s automated analysis used by HR departments. I struggle to find the best words to describe what I do and what I like/dislike. In one phone call [Writer] was able to listen to me blather on and craft my experiences into an outstanding package.

Extreme Appreciation

[Writer] created an eye-popping & creative resume tailored to my individual needs after carefully reviewing my transitional situation with me. I am extremely happy with how she crafted my beautiful resume for my specific needs. [Writer] was very professional, personable and provided me very honest and direct feedback and insight. Lastly, she kept her promises on resume delivery and follow-up timing – great communication that assured me I was in good hands.

I Will 100% Be Back

I approached hiring Find My Profession as an investment in my future and it ABSOLUTELY paid off. [Writer] was attentive, responsive, and highly professional. After meeting with me to discuss my career history, she put my work into words that helped me shine in my job search. I’m recommending this service to everyone I know and I will 100% be back when I need this service again.

I Am 110% Satisfied

[Writer] provided exactly what I wanted. I am 110% satisfied with the completed project which includes a resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn Profile. It was completed in the time frame that was agreed upon, and delivered more than I was expecting. Do not bother looking anywhere else, [Writer] is wicked awesome and a true professional!

Immediate Results

On the same day I received the final resume draft, I applied to a few jobs and got an interview request the next day.
