“Melanie does an incredible job rewriting your resume, if you’d like to advance in your career or transition into a different position. She does this by helping you highlight your transferable skills and experience and see your career in a different light.
She adds much-needed perspective and she will teach you, at the same time, what to avoid including, even though you were so hung up on those aspects of your job.
Her creativity will add flair to the language of your resume to market your skills and experience and make them stand out and sound professional. I feel very fortunate to have been referred to her and have her work with me.”
- Dee M., Administration and Finance
“Melanie has been a great asset to me in starting my own non profit. Her assistance with my website, networking, and even helping to maximize my mission and vision statement has truly polished my pitch. “
- Jeff L., Founder & Director, Non Profit Management
“A few months ago when I decided to start a summer camp, I was sure I knew what the mission statement was going to look like. When I got to the computer, all of the great ideas I had vanished! I knew just who to go to.
I asked Melanie for help, and with the wonderful technology of Skype, we chatted, and discussed ideas. I got to tell her “in person” what I was thinking. We brainstormed, and about 2 hours later, I got an email from Melanie with 3 different mock mission statements! Friendly, efficient and creative!
I would recommend her to anyone who is starting out in the business world for the first time, or to those who are looking to change careers and aren’t sure which way is up.”
- Rebecca B., Entrepreneur, Coach & Gourmet Chef
“Because the interview process is designed to stump you as much as possible, it is always good to have some extra help. Melanie helped me resolve a difficult task by walking me through the problem and discovering an outcome.
Her knowledge of the workplace, and what a business desires out of a potential employee lends to her ability to help with any situation.”
- Lori F., Non-profit management
“Melanie helped me to take the mix of varying skills I had acquired in college and internships, and streamline them on paper so that my resume presented itself to employers with a high level of focus and direction. Her guidance and mentorship was invaluable in enabling me to pursue with a great deal of confidence and clarity my current career path in international business.”
-Will C., International Business
“I found your resume review was more helpful than Career Services. I had taken my resume to them, and they basically said it was fine and needed “minor” adjustments. After we went over and revised my resume, I made an appointment with Career Services at graduate school and they said my resume looked great.
-Erika L., Security & Defense
Talking through my work history was more useful than I could have imagined. Melanie had great advice as to what language to use to describe my skills and experiences, and I’m much more prepared to tell the story of my career path during interviews.I am so excited about the state of my resume. I feel so much more confident when sending it out to design firms!”

- Elena M., Business Process Analysis
“Working with Melanie was a great experience. She works one-on-one with you to develop a package that is suitable for your needs. Not only is she warm-hearted, patient and accommodating, she is also extensively experienced in crafting and perfecting resumes. My resume was far from completion when I decided to call on Melanie for help, but within a few (Skype) sessions I had a professionally written high-impact resume that emphasized my achievements. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and colleagues. Thanks again Melanie!”

- Anna M., Communications
“I thought my bare bones resume would appeal to busy employers, but Melanie informed me that I was short changing myself. She displayed great patience and creativity during the resume revamping process. Melanie meticulously reviewed my skill sets and found a way to help me accurately and succinctly reflect these skills and accomplishments in my resume. I will certainly recommend Melanie to anyone looking for career assistance.”
- Dianne P., Foreign Diplomacy Programs
“You tremendously helped me, both in career mentoring and in revising and focusing my resume. I couldn’t have done it without you. I know that others would absolutely gain from your expertise as well!”
- Rebecca W., SEO Marketing
“I had basically no idea how to write a resume until Melanie showed me – and I mean really showed me. She didn’t just give me a template to follow like my university’s career center had, or simply edit my own feeble attempts at a professional resume, but rather she sat down and went over it line by line with me through several revisions until I understood the finer points that go into successful resumes. Melanie’s was some of the first, and best, professional advice I ever received.”
