Client Testimonials

"Laura was professional and easy to talk to. I was able to transition from a career in architecture to a career in construction management with her help. She diligently recorded my past work experience through our phone conversations and researched my past projects. She used that information to tailor the resume and cover letter to help me transition to a different career path within the same industry. I was very impressed with how she made me look on paper by using the skills and knowledge that I had already possessed. I was able to land the interview with my present job within a week of working with Laura."
