Senior Operations Director
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.

Welcome to Your Edge for Success, YES, DC metro’s top resume writing and career success company!
We are here to help you get a job that you will love.
Watch YES President Katherine Metres Akbar on The Top 5 Resume, LinkedIn, and Interview Strategies for Job Search Success.
Welcome to Your Edge for Success YES, one of the nation’s top-rated resume writing services and career success companies with headquarters in metro Washington DC. We are also the nation’s top-rated company for USAJobs-style federal resumes! We are here to help you get a job that you will love.
People come to us for different reasons:
Whatever the reason motivating you to look at resume writing businesses, we are here to help you get your dream job. We have helped over 2500 clients achieve their career goals in the Washington DC metro area, Chicago, California, Florida, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
These are the latest exciting results for the median/average client from our most survey:
That means, as a result of working with us, the average employed client ends up with an extra $8,000 in income for the year, and the average unemployed client ends up with an extra $30,000 in income for the year, many times what they invested. And there’s also the incalculable value of being in a job where you feel valued, excited, and fulfilled.
Getting hired faster for a job where you are paid more is a delight. But for many of our clients who came to us for a resume, LinkedIn profile, and/or interview skills training, job satisfaction, fulfillment, personal development, and contribution are even more important. After all, the average American spends 53% of their waking hours every day at work. You may soon find out that a highly paid new job that you landed quickly does not make you happier. Ideally, you would like to come to that realization before you accept the offer, and that’s where career coaching comes in.
No matter the reason you came to us or one of the other top professional resume writing services in the area, we recommend you get specific about your goal. That means not only what kind of job you are looking for and what kind of services you think you will need to land that dream job but also clarity about how that job will look. You want to have the tools and skills not only to ace the job interview and get multiple offers but also to make an unemotional, realistic assessment of the resume writing services company you will be working for and the prospect of a long-term, fulfilling career there. This is very important for your happiness and prevents you from having to look for another job in a short span of time or trying to put up and suffer working in an environment or job you come to hate.
So how can you avoid potential pitfalls in hiring a career coach or resume writer, as well as applying for or accepting the wrong jobs?
Do you need a top 2% resume and cover letter? Employers today receive an average of 118 resumes for each job opening. Only the best-fit 2% of resumes get an interview, and these may not include the best people for the job, if their documents don’t show it.
The solution to this challenge, according to independent research:
This demands as much marketing and advanced copywriting skill as expertise in your field.
Other reasons for selecting a professional resume writer service like ours:
Whenever you are applying for a job, keep the following in mind:
All this is why you want to set yourself apart by benefiting from YES’ innovative, proprietary Interview Aikido technique and mock interview to practice and expert coaching.
