Just wanted to let you know I landed a job with the company I worked for building the hotel, and your resume helped me become the new project superintendent on their staff as well as a very competitive salary.
I think it helped create an urgency on their part to hire me or lose me.
Another residential home builder I interviewed with said my resume was the best he had ever seen. He had a masters degree from Marquette. So Thanks again and just wanted to say well worth the Money.
