- Dave Emmette, Account Executive, Ypsilanti, MI

- S.C., Applications Engineer, Dearborn, MI

"In 2010, My engineering job had become a dead end. With the economy and unemployment where it was, I knew the competition was high. Although I looked at other resume companies, Deborah Schuster's qualifications dwarfed the others by a long shot. Throughout the whole process, Deborah was easy to talk with and worked with me to further tweak my resume to fully match my career target. Even after I began the process, I was able to rely on her to help out with questions. The interview preparation materials she sent were invaluable!"

"I ended up interviewing with two companies before I got a great offer from a company that had everything I was looking for. I also received offers from the first company, and from recruiters I had contacted! In the end, Deborah gave me all the tools I needed, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a job. As for her fees, the increase in my salary will more than cover her fees in less than two months...well worth the investment. Thanks again, Deborah!"
- Brian O., P.E., Ann Arbor, MI

"Deborah, I just wanted to thank you for the great resume and am happy to report that I have accepted an offer with (a major insurance carrier)! I landed 3 interviews in the last month and a half.

I will definitely recommend you to anyone else looking for a resume writer!"
-N.P., Accounting Manager, Southeast MI

THANKS AGAIN!!!"
- Lisa Lawrence, Teacher/School Counselor, Houston, TX
