"Thank you, Hollie!! I couldn't have done it without the professional resume you helped me get. 

The first thing I was told is they received over 70 resumes for this position, and my resume is what stood out from the rest. 

Again, thank you for the excellent service."


"Having a great resume can make all the difference, and I am speaking from personal experience. The company that hired me actually offered me a different job than the one that I applied for, and it was a better job! They held onto my resume and told me how clear and concise it was. All of this happened because I presented a well-written document and I'm so glad I did!

Thanks again for everything that you did for me. I am so happy my new job and I love what I do! Your service was well worth it!" 


Dear Patti,

I have really enjoyed working with you on my resume! You've made this process so much easier and I find myself inspired and motivated. I look forward to working with Hollie, too!

I have read thru the latest version. I don't have anything to add. It seems perfect to represent who I am, what I have done and what I have to offer. If it gets rejected then the position was probably not a good fit for me. It also provides the perfect foundation for my Linkedin profile. Thank you so much! You are truly wonderful at what you do!



accepted a job at * * * Hospital. I can’t thank you enough for cleaning up and refining my resume. I actually will be getting a big raise from my current position! That’s an irony!

Very best regards,


Thank you so much! I am very impressed and extremely pleased with the results. I know I personally could never put something together like this. Thank you both so much, I feel very confident in applying for jobs with a strong resume. I'm excited to start this new chapter in the job search and I could not have done it without this amazing resume.

Best regards,

P. B.

Patti, I can't thank you enough for your expertise and professionalism was having a difficult time getting past robots on the online applications. I knew my resume wasn't up to current standards so I did a Google search for resume services in my area. There you were with great reviews with you was very easy. You fixed everything, made great additions and suggestions, and now, after only 1 day of receiving my files from you, I have an interview. I can't thank you enough.

kind regards,

Greg M.

Ms. Long,

This is Ann..., whom you met with on short notice over lunch... last fall (the last minute resume mom). I hope you are enjoying good health and much happiness this new year.  

I wanted to write and tell you once again how grateful my daughter and I were for your help with her resume. She was proud to submit it after your finishing touches. She was accepted into Baylor but is likely going to Texas A&M. She will be using this resume now for scholarship opportunities. Once again, thank you for meeting with me on such short notice, and doing everything you could to help us submit a polished document.


Patti, Thanks for getting this (resume review) back to me. Lots of good points and changes!



It was a pleasure working with you!! You are a blessing and I could not be more pleased!!!

This (info on printing) is very helpful and words can never express my appreciation for YOU!!!!!!

Your work and professionalism EXEMPLARY!!!!

In appreciation,

Greg W.

Hi Hollie! I was offered a job with just a phone interview at xxx however after I received further information about the position I chose to decline the offer. I continue to apply to other 'entities' and hope to find a better fit for me. I trust God position. I just have to be patient and wait for the right one. Do know that your work is opening doors that would otherwise never budge so thank you again. T.S.

Hollie, Thank you for your patience and understanding. Will give you guys good reviews and will let you know the progress with my job. Rosemary 

Dearest Hollie and Patti,

I cannot thank you both enough for getting me ready for my job search. From creating an incredible resume and cover letter to helping me write fantastic thank you letters you both have gone above and beyond what I could have ever expected. Your attention to detail is remarkable. I am so impressed by the fact that you not only provided exceptional editing and proofreading, but you also researched and checked out names and spellings of specific businesses to make sure everything was perfect.

I never imagined that I would learn so much from you both beyond "creating the perfect resume". You have done a great job coaching me on what to say or not say in an interview, an email, a text, etc. Your advice is incredibly valuable and I appreciate all that I have learned from you special ladies over this past week. You have me regain confidence and recognize strengths and skills that I didn't even know I had. I have walked away from this experience as a more confident woman. Thank you for helping me see the skills and strengths that I possess. I consider these as gifts from God and I consider both of you as blessings to me!!!

Thanks again for EVERYTHING.


Thanks so much! This resume has definitely been customized and altered for a "Just Right Fit". You have painted in words a Portrait of my Life Career! This is a beautiful piece of artwork! I am so grateful and elated that God led me to Custom Resume Writers! This is definitely an award and job winning resume! I am so very pleased! You and I will most definitely Share this VICTORY together!

Continued Blessings Over Your Business!


Thank you so much for a fantastic resume that I will be proud to show to potential employers! Hollie, thanks for the in-depth questioning and conversations! You got to know me as a person, and my new resume reflects the dedication and serious work that you put into my profile! What I really love about this resume is that it not only details my work history and my skills, this resume my strengths!

Thank you Custom Resume Writer, I appreciate you!


Patti--- It looks great! I think it is perfect!

Thanks so much,


Thank you, Patti, it looks great and you are awesome. Thank you so much for doing this on short notice.



I just wanted to say thank you for everything you have done for me. I was quite shocked when I was told that the company I have been working for 10+ years was moving and I no longer had a job in the current location. I felt lost, it had been so long since I had even applied for another job. I knew that things had really changed with how resumes & cover letters were written and I didn't even know where to begin until I came across you and your services. You were so friendly and helpful. You went above and beyond what I had expected. Again You so much for everything and I would recommend you to anyone.


Hollie, All I can say is WOW, Really WOW. You have done an unbelievable job! I would not have ever been able to do that myself. Thank you so much.


Hollie, herculean efforts and diligence. So consider this my first official thanks to which you are already dozens. Thank you and well done. I appreciate your efforts and very creative and professional style. It is very seldom that expectations are fully met but I must say they were exceeded with this resume. All the best to you and yours.


Patti, That looks great and thank you for the tips and kind words. I will be in touch


Patti, I would like to thank you for all of your hard work and I look forward to working with you in the future. Thank you.


WOW! Received payment in the mail today from a commercial client along with a 50% tip!! It's great to feel appreciated when you go the 'extra mile' to help a client meet a short deadline.

Patti, Thanks again for all your help. Great job condensing with good emphasis on the major points.


Thanks for everything, Hollie!!! Super excited and can't wait to land something. I'll definitely let you know when that happens! =)


Patti, Thank you for a great job and for all the advice. You make me look great!

I will keep you informed and send recommendations your way. Thanks again!


Hollie, I appreciate all of your hard work!! You've done a fabulous job!! The resume looks great!!! I will let you know how everything works out.



You are saving us! Thank you so much. Anxiety level has dropped tremendously. The resume looks awesome.


WOW! I could never have done this on my own! Thank you so much for the boost of confidence and everything else. My resume looks great.

Again thank you both for all the help, services and encouragement over the past month. It has all meant so much to me. Putting a smile when there was sometimes a frown...many blessings wished upon the both of you...


Hi Hollie,

Thank you so very much for all of your help and support with my resume and cover letter. I really appreciate it! I am glad my mom connected me with you. I feel like my resume has more energy now, and is a much better description of my skills and experience. I hope I have some good news for you soon regarding my job search.

Thanks again!


Patti, what can I say. You did such an amazing job helping me with my resume and cover letter. I was thoroughly impressed with the results and amount of specific details that you were able to take from the information that I had sent. Your professionalism and speedy turn around time were on in the short time frame that requested from you and needed to be completed in. Also being able to reach you by phone or quick responses back and forth from emails showed to me the level of professionalism that you take in your work, that I will be recommending you when opportunities arise.

Thanks Again; D Green

Great news. Your papers already have 4 employers calling!

A special letter from the archives dated Jan. 9, 2012...


What an amazing change YOU made for the students of Christian Women's Job Corps! Prior to your help, the students were simply searching online for resume templates and the results were not always good. In fact, some of the ideas they found were embarrassing! When we changed to the format and guidelines you sent us, the results were remarkable.

Each session, we bring in local business people to conduct "mock interviews" with the students to prepare them for real job interviews. Several of those interviewers who have been doing this for the past couple of years had some very nice remarks about the "new" look of the student resumes. They told me that this was the BEST they had seen from our students and that their resumes were so neat and professional looking. All told me they were very impressed with the presentation and how informative and easy the resumes were to read.

We also had several students who had actual job interviews over the next few weeks and each told me that their interviewer made comments about how professional and nice looking their resumes were.

I can't thank you enough for ALL you did for us and we plan to continue to use your information and guidelines for a long time! You have certainly made a difference for the students of CWJC.

Thank you!

Sandy Adams


God's blessings to you!
