I’m very fortunate to have found Irene…

I’m very fortunate to have found Irene to write my resume. Irene recognized my superb career achievements and what I have to offer. She took the time and attention to really understand my career, which translated into a superior quality resume that perfectly promotes me to the job market. She went the extra mile to coach me on how to rewrite my Linkedin profile and recommended Jason Alba’s book “I’m on LinkedIn, Now What? The book is a very important component of my job search as well as continuing career.
