Dear Nancy,


I would like to take a few minutes to say "thank you" for all that you have done for me in my pursuit of a new career. When my wife and I agreed to relocate to Kansas City so she could accept a job, I needed help putting together a résumé ASAP. I contacted no less than 20 professional writing organizations via the phone and Internet. I received quotes ranging from $500.00 to $1,200 to write a résumé only. Not only were you more reasonable, but you were extremely accommodating. You patiently allowed me to verbally cover all of my experience so that you could transcribe it into a professional document.


Anytime that I called and asked for a revision or additional résumés or letters, you were always available and came through like a pro. You not only furnished me with a professional résumé, but also a cover letter, a federal résumé, and an essay for the job that I was hired to do.


I cannot stress how grateful I am to you for your hard work and dedication. I feel that you embraced my job search as your own. As a result of the work that you performed on my behalf, I have received multiple offers with salaries at or above my previous employment.


Being offered my new job is a dream come true and please accept my genuine gratitude for the huge part that you had in making it happen. I would recommend anyone who is in need of your services.


Warm Regards,


Joe Williams
