"To anyone at any level of their career who is looking for an edge, I recommend Jan Melnik. After being laid-off for the second time in three years I decided I needed some help. After researching and interviewing a number of resume writers across the country, I felt confident that Jan was a good fit for me. She proved me right in spades. Starting with a deep-dive interview to fully understand my career and my skills, Jan crafted – I say crafted because she truly is an artist – a resume that helped me see the value I bring to a company. I had lost a great deal of confidence in myself after this second lay-off and my new resume gave me renewed energy to continue my job search. Shortly thereafter I was contacted for an interview and not wanting to risk letting an opportunity get away, I scheduled a session with Jan to prepare. She helped me draft intelligent, accomplishment-driven responses to anticipated questions. She even turned around a 30-60-90 document in one day to submit with a thank you email to the VP I interviewed with last. Thanks to her help, I made it to the third round of interviews and was offered the job! But she wasn’t done yet. Jan helped me find the courage and the words to ask for a higher salary and I got it! Jan will be my partner in all my future career choices, moves and decisions. She is just amazing at what she does. Call or email her NOW!" – M.W., Marketing Executive, Connecticut
