    Hello, I know writing! Or this would not be my ninth year at a state university writing center teaching/tutoring from undergrad to the doctoral level in 50 different majors. From my own writing service apart from elance where I have six years of experience crafting resumes for results, a few testimonials follow: A direct quote from a client's husband who hires and fires at a high level position. After seeing the resume I wrote for her, he wrote her an email saying, " That's pretty impressive. I think we should do that for both boys." -Keith D. And, yes, if you are curious, both sons are pleased with the resumes I wrote for them. Another quote: This time from a parent who contacted me for his soon-to- graduate son: "Wow, cover letter blew us away!!! Nice job!! ... ...Nice work on the Resume also. We are very impressed" -Brian V. Another testimony: "Hello, I just wanted to thank you for all your help. I got the job and start on Monday. Thanks again." Tim F.
