Check out what dozens of people have to say about #ResumeRescue…
I appreciate your efforts and they were so successful that I’ve already received and accepted an offer. I had 7 recruiters reach out today alone, with 4 voice calls and 1 interview [that happened within the week of resume rescue]. The changes were made last night were a definite improvement! – M.M
Thanks again for meeting with my team! Also, watched your VLOG and really enjoyed it – very well done! And, I shared your site and insights with my son, who lost his job back in Jan as a Software Engineer Manager. I even helped update/review his resume with your suggestions! We shortened all his bullets and used power verbs! Thanks again for all you are doing – it makes (made) a difference! Keep it up! – E.S.
Thank you for getting back to me on my resume again though, I really appreciate all the feedback and advice! It’s been incredibly helpful – I’ve actually accepted a Software Engineering offer with Garmin, and also ended up getting an offer from Amazon after as well! – R.S.
Hi Karen, I wanted to take a moment to thank you. Your feedback on my resume helped me bring it to the next level and made it much easier to get to more interviews. It is also a pleasure to read your experiences on your blog. They are insightful, and I look forward to learning more from your experiences. Good luck with your future endeavours! Thanks!! – V.S.
Thank you for creating blog posts for resumes. I started applying recently and actually got a job interview for next week. I tailored my resume based off of your feedback and blog posts. I found it to be extremely helpful! – V.W.
I was at a virtual career fair today and a recruiter initiated a conversation with me by saying my resume was amazing! I thought you’d be happy to know, your resume rescue is already helping me out. – A.M.
Thank you for the great feedback on my resume review! It’s so helpful to have another pair of eyes look over and identify areas that can be improved. I really appreciate it! – M.B.
Thanks again for taking the time to review my resume, the feedback and the tips from your resume rescue blog were very helpful 🤗 – C.M.
You have no idea how much all of your comments and notes helped. I didn’t think I could make my resume one page (which was silly of me) however, I managed to do it thanks to you. Your feedback was some of the best that I have ever received. – A.L.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look over my resume, I really appreciate it! I think this was the most thorough review of my resume anyone has ever done – it was incredibly helpful. If any of my friends need any sort of resume help, I’ll let them know you give awesome advice! I’ve implemented everything you mentioned in the edits, and also changed a few things around as well. I would definitely say it does sound a lot more concise and impactful now! – R.S.
Thank you very much for your help in rescuing my resume. It really made the difference. After making the changes you suggested, I was able to get interviews at various companies I applied to such as Deloitte, BAT, etc. And I have recently just accepted an offer as an Implementation Engineer at Unblu Inc. I just wanted to let you know this and keep up the great job with kkarenism! – U.A.
Thank you so much for sharing the feedback, I have tried and integrated and made those changes accordingly and I honestly do like this tailored version better than my previous one! I really really appreciate your help and I’ll definitely recommend you to a few of my other friends as well who are currently looking for internship and full-time roles in the tech-field! Thank you once again Karen and have a great rest of your evening and the week ahead 😄 – S.P.
You the BEST Karen!! Thank you so much for that detailed feedback. I’ll make the changes right away. – P.B.
My mom referred me to your Resume Rescue service and after you helped me on my resume I was able to get a job in O&G engineering so thank you for that! – Y.W.
Thank you very much for your feedback. I found all the edits very helpful and will be working to edit and incorporate all the feedback in future revised resumes. I really appreciate it! – S.G.
This is such detailed feedback and it has given me a deep level of understanding on what recruiters look for, while going through different resumes. Once I am done making changes, I will send a revised copy. Honestly, you have covered even the smallest details, from the choice of words to formatting, etc. I have no words to express my gratitude to you for the work you have put in. I hope I can return the favor someday! – P.D.
Your feedback is so useful! I used to hear the same advice you offer from the Career Centre of my school (be concise, quantify value add), but you framed it in a way I was able to truly understand and make real changes, especially regarding the impact I had during my experiences. Thank you so much! – A.S.
Thanks so much for all your suggestions. I will incorporate them right away [and] add a “Summary of Qualifications” section that is tailored to the position as per your advice. – S.B
Thank you very much for the detailed feedback! It was very thorough and well detailed with valid points. I really appreciate the effort you put into this, I’ll take your advice and make the required changes. – U.A.
Thank you so much for your extremely detailed feedback! I will definitely use an ATS friendly resume as I was not aware some companies used this system to filter through applications. – K.A.
I went through your edits and tips last night, and they were very helpful I am so happy I asked you. I appreciate you taking the time to go through my entire resume (because I know there is a lot of content!) I have had people do a high level look over it, but you caught things no one else has so thank you – J.T.
Thank you very much for the review. I have corrected my resume as per the great points made. – A.S.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review my resume.
Your suggestions are greatly appreciated, and I’ll work to incorporate these excellent improvements. [Later on…] I just wanted to let you know I’ve updated the resume based on your comments, and think it is drastically better than how it started. – R.H.
Wow! This looks awesome. Thank you so much for looking over my cv/resume! I greatly appreciate your expertise, feedback, and the time you took out of your schedule for the review. I will definitely need to take a different approach in writing how I’m adding value to an organization. I also agree that I need to add quantifiable values and keep my talking points to a minimum. There’s a lot to tighten up and for sure I need to get back to the drawing board and rethink my approach. – S.R.
I am impressed at your feedback as it has been probably the most fruitful resume feedback I have received. I find it both amusing and hopeful that my resume can be improved this much. Not sure how to show my thanks but if I ever see you, I hope I can at least get you a coffee! – K.D.C
Thank you so much, this was really insightful! I checked the comments and it really made sense for me. Also, I really needed some help with the wording and formatting, and you got it covered. – A.V.

Thank you for such a thorough review, Karen! All your suggestions make a lot of sense and I will be incorporating them to make my resume much more concise. I will definitely recommend you to my friends!! Getting to know what my resume looks like to somebody in the industry has given me so many insights regarding what I should be fixing. Your in-depth comments really show that you spend a substantial amount of time reading through my resume. I hope this improved version will help me land my dream role. I will keep you posted about that! – T.B.
