It is an awesome opportunity! My goal was to find a career that I will enjoy and start at an income I have never been at before. With the base salary and commission structure, I have far exceeded my goal.!I learned through this process many things about myself. Above all I have what it takes…and so does everybody else. I also wanted to thank you for not only what you taught me but the personal encouragement and the straight forward no sugar coating learning process. It can be long road to success, but worth the effort.”

“Norine was incredible!  She is on top of her game.  She helped me create one of the top resumes I have ever seen.  I paid a previous firm several thousands of dollars and they did not even deliver a 10th of what she provided.  I would recommend Norine to many more of my colleagues.  Her follow-up, coaching, and availability exceeded my expectations.”

– Safety Inspector/Logistics Specialist, Missouri

“The resume you’ve done for me has surely restored my confidence.  When I looked it over, I was thinking, this REALLY is me and what I’ve done!  The skills God has blessed me with and the challenges and circumstances He has led me through–no one can take away!  Again, many thanks for an awesome job and the help you’ve given me!”

Not only did you do a great job highlighting my strengths and experience on paper, you made me feel much more confident than I would have otherwise. You are so professional, yet personable enough to have made me feel like we were fast friends.”

– Interior Designer, Frederick, MD

“Thank you, thank you, thank you. How else can I say it? You have helped me so much to stay on track, keep making contacts, and teaching me that this job search stuff isn’t really as bad as I made it seem (although it is quite stressful at times). But, you really helped me when I was in a rut that I felt was a permanent rut. Thanks again.”
