My new resume helped give me that edge I needed to make the leap into a new career. I am pleased to have landed a position which I would consider my dream job. Your help over the past five years has proven to be of great value in helping me position myself for a couple of internal promotions and my most recent career change.
Joyce, I want to take this time to say thank you for your service. As a result of you getting my resume updated professionally, I was awarded an interview and I secured the job!! I’ll call you early in the game when another opportunity comes my way for an update. Thanks, Be Blessed,

I contacted Joyce the first time to review my resume, at that time I was ready to change jobs so I want it to hire somebody who could revive my old resume. Joyce is very easy to work with; I was very impressed with Joyce fast response I had my brand new resume in a less than 2 weeks and 2 weeks later I had my first interview. After that my husband decide to redo his resume as well and now my sister is working with Joyce as well.
In today's economy you need exposure. I have used Joyce 3 times and she raises the bar each time. She knows what employers are looking for and builds your resume to be highly searchable. The rest is up to you. I would use Joyce again in a heartbeat. Do you yourself a favor and spend a little extra money up front. You will make up for it on the back-end. Good luck!
I have been laid off twice in the past two years. Both times I contacted Resumes By Joyce to have adjustments made to my resume and I must say that I was able to quickly land a job after receiving and sending out my updated resume. Thanks for your professionalism and advice.

Is Your Executive Resume Template Hurting Your Employment Search?
As a professional resume writing company, we see hundreds of do-it-yourself resume templates. To tell you the truth, some are actually pretty good—even if they usually fall short on focus, value offered, and personal branding strategies.
The question is, will an executive resume template work when applying for a CIO, CEO, COO, or CFO-level position—or do you need a professionally designed, customized, executive layout?
Following up after the interview—with a thank-you letter, card, or strategic letter—is a great way to strengthen the interviewer’s perception of you as a good fit for the position. For example, the strategic letter is slightly more in-depth compared to a thank-you letter or card. The strategic letter provides an opportunity to share additional skills, strengths, or possibly a mutual interest that may have been discussed between you and the interviewer—to possibly tip the scale in your favor.
Executive resumes that clearly, accurately, and succinctly align your skills and experiences with how you have solved problems, saved money, streamlined operations, or groomed future leaders can increase your interview rate. Your audience of CEOs, CFOs, COOs, executive search firms, or potential Board Members will appreciate a customized resume that is easy to navigate and effectively conveys what you can deliver.
