I really appreciated the unsolicited guidance I didn't know I needed about making my resume more currently functional for marketing in this competitive job market. Also appreciated was her very clear and direct information about current market and expectations.

What impresses me most about Renee is here very useful feedback on both my Resume and my job search goals. It is very highly relevant and I am able to directly incorporate this into improving my resume. I also feel that Renee is very relatable and took the time to dig into what I really do to understand me and my skills.
