Shortly after graduating from college, I accepted a position and soon realized I wanted to transition into a different career. I didn't know how to go about this, so I reached out to Anita and I do not regret it one bit! Anita has been extremely helpful and patient throughout my job search. She revamped my resume, coached me through resume writing, and even prepped me for my interview. We have built a great relationship throughout my job search and I know I can go to Anita with any questions I may have. It is so worth it to reach out to her and I recommend everyone and anyone, who is looking for help, to reach out to Anita ASAP.
Update 7/6/16: I got the job! I was notified that I was selected for the position and I start in 2 weeks. I couldn't have done this without Anita. I am so so excited to start my career with the federal government and can't wait for what lies ahead. Anita has become a great friend and an amazing mentor. THANKS ANITA!
I have been trying to obtain a federal job for the past 4 years, and have applied for well over 20 positions. I didn't score high enough on the initial HR screening, and was screened out with most of these application. The resumes I was using didn't work. Then earlier this year I found Career Ladders, Inc. to assist me with preparing my federal resumes. They used a different approach to resume writing and it worked! I applied for five positions and was interviewed for each one! I was selected for an interview for every position they helped me apply for. They batted a '1000' with my applications. Now I am employed in a high level federal position. I couldn't have done it without their help. I wished had known about Career Ladders sooner. They are very knowledgeable with the federal app. process, and the targeted resumes they write using your information gets results. If you want a federal job and need help getting past the HR screening, hire Career Ladders!
After graduating college and wanting to start a career in the federal government, I found the application process rather cumbersome. Anita was able to demystify the process for me. First, she crafted a detailed resume for my portfolio; listing my previous jobs, emphasizing the skills I had learned and accomplishments I had achieved in each position. After completing Anita's interview coaching, I was confidently able to answer the behavioral interview questions asked of me by the panel interviewers. For each question asked, I already had an answer/scenario that aligned my skills with the duties of the position. Thanks to Anita's career counseling, I was able to land a job with the DHS - for which I am very grateful. I highly recommend her services!
Anita is everything she says she is plus much more. Having occasional bouts with destiny- we talk about how my wife and I picked her and didn't even bother to research anyone else. A career change is one of the hardest things you can do at 42 years old- and through these hard times her amazing help has made her nothing less than a new close friend. I would guarantee her work.
I have gone to Anita twice over the last few years for professional resume writing. The first time I went to her, I was pretty scared and nervous. I had searched high and low for a professional resume writer and I had no idea what to expect. I had a lot of questions, and was worried that maybe I would get "scammed" even. When I first spoke to Anita, I immediately had a good feeling. I felt like she genuinely cared and was very honest. I eventually decided to go with her, and I couldnt have been happier with how my resume turned out (the first time, and this last time around, just recently). I would also like to say that I have absolutely nothing to do with the military, so if you are thinking that this is her only "expertise", I am proof that it is definitely not! I have a complex and unusual background in high volume sales, When I told Anita what i was looking for and what my goals were she understood. She gets it. She cares. She does an amazing job, and in a short time frame. I am SO grateful I stumbled upon Anita a few years ago and will always continue to recommend her to family and friends and use her again myself in the future if/when the need arises. Thank you Anita!! J M/P
An absolutely indispensable resource for any job hunter; especially for transitioning military. Anita and the Career Ladders staff assisted me during the entire job search process. Beginning to end... From the comprehensive pre-resume writing interview...the timely delivery of a fine tailored resume... to the interview prep, Anita was incredible. Her expert ability to translate military experience to civilian skills was amazing. Anita and her staff were always available, and made me feel as if I were their only customer. I have recommended Career Ladders to many of my friends.
Just two weeks away from assuming the post I am really passionate about! Anita is an invaluable resource who helped me fulfill my dream. She translated the knowledge, skills and abilities I have invested on all these years into a resume that is worth any recruiter's attention. Working with Anita means you have found so much more than what you are looking for! Kudos to Career Ladders! Thank you so much Anita!
I am currently negotiating a salary with a federal agency that I have always wanted to be a part of. Prior to hiring Anita's services, I was skeptical about hiring someone to help me draft and finalize my federal resume. I figured it would be a good investment in my self and decided to go for it. Anita was and continues to be available in my job search. Before hiring her company I did my reference checks and they all checked out and would have to say that they were all accurate. I would suggest using her services if you are prior military and need help transferring your skills into the federal industry. To all individuals who are getting ready to separate from active duty, take the time and investment on yourself and contact Anita. I only wish I would of known of such services prior to my separation from the Marine Corps in 2004.
This is my first post and one that I must share with those looking for employment and transitioning from military service. I strongly believe having your resume written (or simply reviewed) by a qualified professional is extremely valuable. I don't say this simply because I needed a professional to assist me with translating my military experience into a suitable civilian career as it was my first time in 28 years now faced with the realization of seeking employment and not knowing exactly what I wanted to do in pursuit of a new career.
Career Ladders provided excellent resume writing services and recruiting tools that made it very clear that most people are not objective enough to present themselves in the most favorable way. Anita created a great resume highlighting my years of experience of who I am not a document that is their "conception" of you.
Anita took an individualized approach; working with you to uncover talents, skills and competencies that you may not even be aware you possess. She is a professional resume writer that will take the time to make certain the resume is an accurate depiction of you and also make certain that the final product is one to which you can speak.
Anita was aware of what buzzwords make a resume look fresh vs. outdated, for example, "traffic and distribution" vs. "logistics" vs. "supply chain". She also had a strong sense of how the job market works and how hiring managers think.
Yes, the service may seem pricey, however Career Ladders was worth the money.
I start my new job end of month July--I highly recommend Career Ladders!
Career Ladders was instrumental in translating my 20 plus years of military training into a master resume that worked in the civilian workforce. Anita gave me professional service throughout the resume building process. I was recently hired by the Texas Veterans Commission and was able to use my interviewing skills she taught me. She went above an beyond the scope of her duties as a resume writer to assist me in getting hired. I now have a professional resume for the private sector and a detailed master federal resume. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone looking for meaningful long-term employment.
