Hi Gayle,

I wanted to express my heartfelt gratitude for your guidance and mentorship in the art of resume writing. Your expertise and support have been instrumental in helping me craft exceptional resumes, which, in turn, led to my nominations for three TORI awards this year (2023). Your wisdom and teachings have truly been a game-changer in my career, and I am deeply thankful for your invaluable contribution and support.

I can’t believe how much better my resumes are after taking your course. It’s true that you don’t know what you don’t know. And it turns out I didn’t know as much as I thought I did!

Your feedback for the final assignment was also spot on and made me rethink how to start a sentence with success, even if it’s not a metric.

I really appreciate you taking so much time to provide thoughtful and insightful feedback on each assignment and answer my off-the-cuff questions.
You’re an excellent instructor from down under, Gayle ;-) and a great resume writer. One day I hope to be as good as you! I look forward to recommending your course to everyone I know.

Say goodbye to the daily grind and hello to a role that inspires you

Gayle, I wanted to give you an update on our progress. We applied all of your techniques to my wife Penny’s CV as well as mine, and I have to report we have been fairly stunned by the results. When we first started looking for jobs in Auckland using our newly constructed CVs, Penny was inundated with interview requests and eventually was offered a position managing a team of business analysts when all she initially expected to be offered was a senior analyst role. The recruiter in question had tried to find a suitable candidate for four months. When I started to apply for senior project manager roles my CV was rejected regularly. I subsequently received another interview to set up and manage a strategic program office, passed, and was then interviewed buy the MD and offered the position. This is pretty much a dream role for me. As a result we have both obtained positions we thought we were capable of but maybe in a couple of years with more experience. Our conclusion is that not only did your techniques help us construct a more effective CV but they also helped us to analyse our careers to date and to sell the achievements we had made during our interviews. By the way, many people here have commented on how well our CVs demonstrated our achievements. So thanks again for the help and you can be sure that I recommend you to everyone I know is looking for work. Best regards, Mark.”
