Case Study

Resume writing services client

Peter M.

Senior Operations Manager

After being unemployed for 5 months and filling out several dozen job applications I constantly wondered why I wasn’t receiving any phone calls or interviews from employers. I’ve worked since I was 16 years old and being in this position was both hurtful and depressing.

A few weeks after I first made the phone call to YES, I received my new resume, cover, and thank you letter. Within two hours of submitting my application for one of the positions I received a call! I scheduled an interview practice soon after. First thing the morning after my interview I received a phone call with a job offer! Thanks to Katherine and her team for all of their help, hard work, and assistance during this process.

Success Stories

When the opportunity arose for me to move jobs, YES was right there. From how to interview to how to negotiate. They gave advice that you just can’t get anywhere else. When I was shopping for career coaching, I looked all over the U.S. and finally decided to go with YES. Looking back, it was the right decision as the team is responsive, provides a personal touch and key insights into careers.

Thanks to the services of YES, I landed my dream job today!!!!! I cant thank you enough for the help YES has been to my career.  I’ve learned so much from the interview Aikido video, Michael’s career coaching sessions, and the formats of my resume and LinkedIn profile.  You’ve helped me build my personal brand! I could never have done this on my own. Thank you YES!!

If you are looking for a fresh start in the Federal government, I highly recommend letting YES help you with your resume! The Federal resume they helped me with got me over 20 USAJobs referrals. I am looking forward to starting a great role as a public servant in April.
