Being an HR executive for a couple decades has allowed me to see countless poor written resumes and cover letters. When I was contacted by a search firm that required a candidate with experience like mine, I knew it was time to find a certified resume writer. I invested a week culling through a variety of options and after speaking with a managing partner at Vertical Media Solutions, I chose to retain them. The process was very thorough and included an analysis of my professional background along with a telephone consultation with a certified professional resume writer. I immediately resonated with the amount of detail that went into each step and I appreciated consultative approach. My resume and cover letter go the extra mile and present my qualifications in the best possible light. If you're looking to make the next step in your career, give VMS a call.
My brother in law retained the services of this firm several years ago and has spoken highly of his interactions with the staff so I called too. I have a diverse technical skill set as the engineering manager of several production facilities around the country. My concern was that a person with an english degree might be a decent writer, but wouldn't be able to comprehend and represent my strengths. However, this concern became nonexistent within the first couple minutes of speaking with Joel. He assigned me a very talented professional resume writer and the documents that I got from vms were spot on. Every single person I've sent my resume to has commented in one way or another about it. I found a highly desirable position within a few weeks and I'm glad I had a team of career experts to assist me.
Working with everyone at vertical media solutions was a real eye opener for me. I found them online right before I was going to send a resume in for a job I really wanted. Joe reviewed the resume that I had written and gave me a lot of helpful advice and direction without even asking for money. It became clear that my the stuff I had written was going to harm my chances of landing this interview and I decided to call in the experts. The guys at VMS not only wrote a targeted resume but they also go my cover letter and LinkedIn looking impressive. A few weeks later I was extended a written offer and I feel like this came about because I DID NOT use the original resume I had written. You guys have earned my recommendation!
