Andre Little - Testimonial for Julie Walraven

I give Julie the highest recommendation. To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect from a resume writing service.

She went above and beyond to help me achieve my goal of landing a new job.

If you don’t take advantage of her services you are missing out on a higher salary or landing a dream career.

I was headed into a transition. I had worked hard on my resume, but was not getting the traction I was expecting. Turns out that my resume template from college (20ish years ago) was garbage. Julie asked me a bazillion questions, waived her synonym wand around, sprinkled in some color, tweaked some settings I (a 30yr MS Word user) had no idea existed and PRESTO CHANGE-O... a masterpiece!

I believe that this update to my resume, mindset, and LinkedIn profile was crucial to accurately communicating my value proposition and worth. This realignment was the key that unlocked a meaningful pay increase and entry into a sector I had been chasing for months.

Your loss if you don't engage Julie immediately, not mine!
