What matters most to you at this point? Getting it done cheap, or getting it done right? Yes, there are cheaper options and yes, I can only take on a certain number of clients per month. If cheap, quick, and readily available is what you need, there are plenty of people ready to send your project overseas, hand it to a ‘trainee’, or someone with no certifications or understanding of the recruiting world and best ways to market a skill set. If you can see the value in what I bring to your project, I’d like to work with you.

reviews from people I helped with their job search
“1 hour. That’s how long it took from the time I received my resume from Ken to the time the recruiter for the position I was most interested in called.
Had a chat with her, she recommended me to the client and I got the job!
Take the rest of the day off. You’ve earned it! “
“Highly recommended. I always had problems with interviews, so I called Ken and booked an appointment.
Ken helped me focus on what was important and made me more aware of myself and my unconscious little blunders, so I could correct them.
He is friendly and funny, and full of constructive criticism.
I was the successful candidate for the job he helped me prepare for, which is my ultimate dream job!
Thank you Ken!”

He payed very close attention to everything I told him and put together a flawless piece.
First place I applied, I landed an interview with.
His work is definitely worth every penny.”

I have received interview calls within a week of my posting the resume drafted by Ken. (I had been trying for almost 8 months before that without any success whatsoever)

I have referred you to my network and will continue to do so.”

I will be using Ken again to update my resume with my new role and responsibilities.”

I was offered a resume writing service from my company when I was let go, and I graciously declined and opted to enlist Ken to assist me after reading the reviews.

His interview coaching then ensured that I was able to maximize this opportunity through creating a dialogue within the interview and with the hiring committee to showcase all the added value my skills, experience, and passion brought to the position I was seeking with this premier organization.
I strongly recommend Ken and his services for those wishing to create lasting employment success and advancement opportunities.”
