          What Our Clients Are Saying

          • "It took a long time and 3 interviews, but I got the promotion! The investment I made hiring you was more than worth it. I’ll be getting paid $XK more per year and I’ll be doing my dream job. I cannot thank you enough for your assistance. You are a very talented resume writer."
          • "Simply Great Resume’s was the perfect match for me. I was looking to test the market and see what was out there to further my career. Kerry Gustafson's work is second to none! Kerry has a way with words that I could only dream of having. She transformed my dull resume into a professional document that showed my skills in a way that I couldn’t help but be proud of my own accomplishments after reading it. Knowing that I had this powerful first impression that perfectly displayed my skills allowed me to not only look at positions of a lateral move, but also for positions of elevated status from my current. Simply Great Resume’s gave me the tools and confidence to elevate my career. For that, I thank Kerry."
          • "I found Kerry through an internet search and am glad that I took the time to reach out to her.  Without a doubt Kerry exceeded my expectations regarding the time and professional advice she game me on my resume update.  She was outstanding with the questions she asked me so  she could draw out of me the true picture of my career and accomplishments.  Kerry is a master at taking this information and building a resume that I am proud of.  Not only was I ecstatic with the results she delivered on my resume I was just as impressed with what she did with my LinkedIn profile.  Kerry truly understands LinkedIn and how to create a profile and set up the system to get results.  I am getting daily views from former colleagues, friends and recruiters.  Kerry took the time to explain the features of LinkedIn and how I should manage my account to get the best value out of the system. I would highly recommend to anyone in need of resume services to reach out to Kerry.  I am an HR professional with 27+ years of experience and even though I know a lot about good resumes Kerry improved mine substantially.   Thanks Kerry for the time, attention and passion you put into my project.  Not only did I enjoy working with you I now have established a professional contact for life."

          • "It has been my pleasure to work directly with Kerry Gustafson and Simply Great Resumes. Kerry provided me with excellent service. She is a pleasure to work with: smart, personable, thoughtful, honest and direct. I was particularly impressed with her knowledge of hiring practices and social networking tools such as LinkedIn. Selecting Simply Great Resumes was a great decision and Kerry was very helpful to me."
            - S.A.C.
          • "Working with Kerry was a fantastic experience. Her hands-on assistance in revamping both my resume and LinkedIn profile was critical in my job search for a fulltime position after I graduated from college. With Kerry’s advice, I was better able to show my core competencies to potential employers who previously would often pass over key details in my application. When it came time to apply for a job I really wanted, the changes made to both my resume and LinkedIn profile translated into my application sticking out from hundreds of other applicants who were competing against me. I eventually landed that job and I look forward to working with Kerry again on my next resume."
            - S.H.
          • "My situation was very peculiar. After finishing graduate studies I stayed home to take care of my kids for 5 years. As a result of Kerry’s strategies and impeccable work, I began receiving invitations for job interviews, which was not happening when submitting my original resume. A month and a half after the first phone consultation with Kerry, I started working as an engineer for a Fortune 500 company.  I’m extremely happy to have found Simply Great Resumes."
            - V.O.
          • "Kerry is an extremely knowledgeable, personable, and creative person. Not only did she prepare my resume and Linkedin profile, she provided invaluable coaching on job search techniques, industry trends, and other strategies to help with my job search. Thank you Kerry."
            - S.K.
          • "Because of your excellent resume skills I applied to the company I am at now and the next day they wrote me interested in interviewing immediately! My job search was completed in less than a week" Just wanted to tell you and thank you! "
            - M.G.
          • "Simply Great Resumes helped me recraft my resume into a succinct and powerful document that got the attention of hiring managers. Prior to my work with Kerry, my resume was filled with too much information, a "catch-all" for all the accomplishments I thought I had to include in the resume. Kerry showed me how to pare down the resume to the most important characteristics and points, and made it eye-catching and useful to hiring managers. Kerry was a joy to work with; I recommend her and Simply Great Resumes to anyone that feels the need for a resume makeover."
            - K.H.
          • "I contacted Simply Great Resumes recently to give my resume a jump start on a career change. After speaking with Kerry, she revamped my résumé and gave me confidence to submit applications. Prior to working with Kerry at Simply Great Resumes, I was always timid about submitting my résumé to companies. I now am confident that I am one step ahead of the others."
            - K.M.

          • “After not needing to edit or pay attention to my resume for many years, I felt the need to seek some professional advice. My resume improved greatly but the best part was talking to someone who knew much more about it than I did. My resume editor was extremely helpful, courteous, and genuinely interested in what I wanted to accomplish. I would recommend the service to anyone who is interested in highlighting their talents/ experience.”

          • “I thought I had created a decent resume while I was in college but as I was applying for jobs I didn’t get much response. I felt like I needed to change my resume so it would convey to employers my strengths and skills.  I handed my resume over to Simply Great Resumes.  Simply Great Resumes quickly transformed my resume into one that is eye catching for employers.  I sent my resume out and within a couple days received a response, an interview, and a job!  Thank you Simply Great Resumes for making my job search quick and painless!”
            - B.K.
          • “Simple Great Resumes has been a wonderful resource while trying to start a new career.  I was unsure where to start with even updating my resume, but Simply Great Resumes answered all my questions and produced a phenomenal resume that I am very proud to pass on to possible future employers.  Simple Great Resumes made my resume in a very timely manner and even went so far as to recommend possible businesses and gave me other resources to use in the job search.  I have been more than impressed and would highly recommend Simple Great Resumes to anyone looking for some help with their resume.”
