"with your great advice and awesome resume and cover letter ... it was out of 342 applicants in my area they picked me!!"- Ryan See more comments Act now
After months of sending out Jays resume (that I wrote) and getting not one response we realized it was time to turn to you. We had no idea what a huge response we would get after you created such an impressive work of art. In just one day Jay has three interviews lined up. Today is his first interview and the salary is almost double.
We can't thank-you enough as you have greatly exceeded our expectations. We also need to thank-you for taking our difficult financial situation into consideration and creating a resume for me at no charge. Your heart is made of gold, and you are a true Master at creating amazing, and effective resumes.
Jay and Linda Terault
I have been applying for so many jobs and was not receiving any call backs, so I went to Fred needing a resume and cover letter. I thought I was at a point of no return when he told me the price because I could not afford it. However, Fred had informed me that his company reserves a few slots for those that are having financial difficulty and he could offer me a lower price that I can afford for a top notch professional cover letter and resume. I was so ecstatic ! It is so refreshing to know that there are actual companies with a moral compass and traditional values that can assist people like myself.
Thank you very much,
You recently created a resume for my daughter, Melissa. She applied for the position, but unfortunately the organization offered it to someone within the company. Her resume was forwarded for another opening within the organization for which she eventually was hired. The irony of the whole situation is that by accepting the second position, she gained an increase in salary of over $10,000.00.
Again thank you for all your help and professional expertise.

I can not thank you enough for the excellent resume you prepared for me. Every school system that I sent my resume to, called me for an interview, which led to my landing a job I love! I am completely convinced that your superbly professional representation of me opened doors that might not have otherwise been opened. People who are serious about getting a good job or making a change need an edge and your succinct use of powerful words in addition to your keen sense of what employers are looking for provides an edge that leads to an opportunity. That opportunity is worth its weight in gold! To this day, I continue to recommend your marvelous service to others. In fact, the resume and cover letter you prepared for my daughter, who just completed her MSW, is fabulous!
Thank you Fred~
I am a senior executive who has been coming to you for over 10 years and each time I am called for an interview for a better position I call you to jazz up my resume. It always makes a difference and with that said you have done my wife’s twice and my son’s once. My son was laid off during the early part of the recession and in spite of a pedigree degree in his field there were no offers until you reinvented his resume. He got a better job with more responsibility and the resume played a big part. Separately I sent you one of my employees husband who was a recession victim of the banking fall out in NYC. Armed with his new resume he had two offers for the same as he was previously making within two weeks. Keep up in the good work as you truly make a difference.

Dear Fred & Chris,
Just wanted you to know that I landed a job as a food service supervisor at Silver Hill Hospital. Thank you so much, it's great to be back to work.
Dear Fred, Thank you for giving me a 50 % discount on my résumé and cover letter because of my veteran status. Thanks,
Dear Fred, I interviewed with Goldman Sachs and they were extremely impressed with my résumé. Thank you
Thanks, Robert J. Donofrio
Dear Fred, Thank you, thank you, thank you for your help with my daughter Megan's resume. She just landed a job at Greenwich Academy as the Costume Coordinator. This job enables her to do what she loves with double the pay. The other perks are medical benefits that rarely come with this line of work, 401K, tuition reimbursement, and an annual stipend ($3,000.00) to go increase her skills for the job.
Personally, I want to thank you father to father. We always want to feel like are children are settled. This position gives me the peace of mind regarding that issue. I now know that she has found a home and will be able to support herself in her chosen field - a beuatiful thing. Thanks,
Thanks, Tom Ormond
As of today I have 8 interviews with 4 more probables that I have to call back at the end of January! There is a huge possibility I will have over 12 interviews considering we don't even leave for Florida for 20 days! Before Fred redid my piece of garbage resume no one would look at me especially since I've been out of the hospitality field for over 12 years, but since resume became stellar I now have interviews for FOM, F&B Manager, along with Restaurant Manager. I highly recommend resumes etc. The money you pay is well worth it. Listen to Fred, he does know what he is talking about and because of this my family and I now will most likely be able to move to Florida!!
Thank You Fred A. Rogers
"Thank youuuuuuuuuu so much Fred for the professional resume that you did for me. I have been unemployed for over a year and was not getting no results with the resume that I had. Fred is beyond just writing a resume, he is brilliant in all job occupations and what is in demand going forward. I have read the emails of others using this service and I was IMPRESSED. The end result was I took my resume on a job that had been seen by five hundred applicants and only had twenty two positions that needed to be filled. I was one of those twenty two chosen for one of the positions. Being on a job for so long I did not know anything about job interviewing skills until I found Fred company. PLEASE for anyone who needs to have a resume done and interviewing coaching done on a PROFESSIONAL level Fred is the person you want to use. You would not go to fight a WAR without being equip for battle. The same goes for the job market not having the tools that are required in the end result you will not win."
Thank You Fred A. Rogers
"I feel compelled to write a testimony about the resume and cover letter you wrote for me this year. We have been together now about 2 years, and EVERY time I fax a cover letter and a Resume you have done for me I get an interview!!!!!!
I am told during these interviews what a wonderful Resume I've sent to them, how interviewees no longer use the kind of vocabulary that's written and that it is evident that I care about the quality of the resume I am sending.
I will always come to you for my resume needs, Fred, because you do a fantastic job and you get me in the door. Kudo's my friend.
"I came to your office and shared my personal story of losing my husband,losing my job and being in foreclosure.you did all the work for me free of charge,telling me that you reserve 5 free clients a month for serious hardships.I can't believe that people like you actually exist.you will forever remain in my prayers."
"Just got through sending a copy of my new resume out for a possible interview. Even though I am currently employed and loving my job I am always hunting for something better.I have had a couple of resumes written by Fred in the past and they have always opened doors for employment. In fact my current position was obtained solely on the strength of what he had written. I was pretty much hired on the spot, you can't ask for anything better! Again, thank you Fred for being my partner in my job search. Hopefully you can also open a door for my daughter when the time comes. You are truly a genius at what you do and the wordsmith that you are."
Warmest Regards and thanks

Dear Fred and Chris,
"Thank you so much for doing my college essay and resume. Syracuse University accepted thousands of applications for their highly competitive education program with only 250 openings. Thanks to Resumes Etc., I was one of the lucky few who were accepted. Without your help I would not have been accepted.
Thank you so much for your help.
I would Highly recommend this company.
Fred, I am very pleased, the phone has been ringing off the hook for the last two days, since I published the resume. I have done phone screenings and I have a bunch of interviews scheduled for next week.
I am writing to thank you, enthusiastically, for squeezing the most potential out of my resume. Within a day of posting it on CareerBuilder, I received 9 emails from recruiting managers requesting more information in order to set up interviews with me. Already, I have 4 interviews this week and I haven't even responded to all the initial emails yet. I couldn't be more satisfied with your services and I would, without hesitation, highly recommend your services to anyone looking for a job in this tough economy. PS. if any one of your potential clients would like to call me for more information about my experience I would be happy to answer any questions they have. I can be reached at 203.615.4095.
All the best,
I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.
Fred is a good man, he helped me out almost a year after I originally contracted with him with an updated resume and cover letter at no charge when my circumstances changed. I would do business with him again and recommend him highly. A+ Guy & Business.
Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, Good Value
karen got a great job in marketing with audi with a great salary,and she's driving around in a porche while other college grads can't find jobs.
thank you so much. diane c.
I am in need of a job again since my company is moving to kansas. I sent my friend Jill to you and she got a great job at Yale,and you got her daughter a fantastic job at Anthem.
Fred is a an excellent resume writer. If anyone you are recruiting needs assistance and wants a brilliant resume have them email Fred at the address I cc'd on this email.
You should understand by now that I have high standards and I only refer people that are excellent at what they do (need to protect my name.) Fred is the best I have come across and I would strongly recommend him to anyone that requires a strong resume.

I knew I was a star but it had to look like that on my resume. Fred took my life experience, my professional skills and Unlatched them in words that reflected my professional talent. He is unlike anyone else when it comes to writing resumes. I live in NYC and have access to the best which I tried -but they failed and Fred made it all happen for me. My resume is so good, That i feel so proud going in for an interview and thats what I am doing - going for interviews. I landed a job at a place that is wonderful! Spend your doe and go to him. Do the coaching, he is the STAR! I have friends who want to see him. All my life experience is reflected on my resume - GO TO HIM! I would write more but I have to GO TO WORK! :)
Michelle Zaffino, Business Development.
The resume you completed for me has received a signigifigant number of compliments from senior Wall Street executives. The CIO of a fortune 5 company said "very interesting and well written resume." My role as a senior global manager has provided me the opportunity to read thousand's of resumes. People that know me would say that I have high standards, I am fair and only pay compliments when absolutely justified. The resume you drafted is absolutely "BRILLIANT"
I just wanted to thank you for the resumes and cover letters. They were excellent and helped me land my new position.
Thank you again for all your help.
I just wanted to thank you guys because I got hired by Danbury hospital today :)

I would like to express a sincere thank you for the timely creation of one of the finest resumes and two power cover letter(s) one could imagine. The professional coaching skills also helped me gain the confidence that I needed to successfully conduct my job search and interview. To possess a skill that requires condensing a three page resume into 2 pages and allowing my KSA’s to shine is a gift.
I can honestly say that now I feel great about presenting my resume to employers. I also feel that my resume and cover letter will yield the results of finding my dream job. Business with Resumes ETC. does not stop here. I will continue to use your expertise and recommend your resume writing to many others in the future. Thank you very much!
I got a job already! Asst. Mgr. for the waterford/royal doulton/wedgewood crystal store at the clinton outlets. Thanks again for everything & take care of my friend Chuck Harvey.
In the past 18 months I could not get an interview for anything!
After I came to see you, I had 5 interviews within one week!
You are the man!
Hey Fred, I got my first interview tomorrow!......Not even 24 hours later after I sent my resume :D..... I'll keep you updated....
I got the job! I want to thank you for such an impeccable resume and cover letter that assisted me in applying for a supervisory position within my agency. I must admit I was a little nervous because I knew I was not the only one going for the position. However, when I read my resume I was in awe at how after we met you were able to capture my skills and talents in such a way that I was even impressed with the person on the resume.
This experience assisted me in so many ways. The immediate result was that it increased my confidence and gave me the assurance that I have what it takes to go further in my career. The interview questions you prepared for me were amazing. I was so comfortable in a room of four managers staring at me. Later, I was informed that the VP of Operations commented on how I had such an impressive cover letter.
Again, thank you for a job well done. I have informed colleagues and friends of your work so be on the look out!
Lamond Daniels, LCSW

I wanted to thank you for the resume you did for me back in July. I landed a great Job with GE Corporate and a 35% pay raise from what i was making before at a different company and real benefits.
Now My Wife Tanya would like you to do her resume. she works in the medical field. She does not have a current resume. What information do you need from her to prepare. Can we try and set up a phone meeting? Nights would be best what do you have available?
I have another interview scheduled! I met with the CEO of the other company on Friday and that went really well. It went so well in fact that I expect to get an offer this week. And even better, after talking with me they have upgraded the job responsibilities. I will call you this morning to make sure you got this e mail.
I got a ton of interviews from your resume and cover letter.
I landed my dream job as a Disease Management RN for a major health solutions company.
Thank you so much!
I got a great job looking for a hedge fund. The hiring manager said my resume and cover letter was the reason I got the job. Thank you so much for making my life happier. Myra
I know that you have been receiving overwhelming responses to my resume and cover letters. And thank you for doing a commendable job negotiating my multi-million dollar executive contract. When is my starting date??
Thank you for your support.
Thank you sooooo much Fred. You're the greatest, it has been a pleasure working with you.
Hey Alfred, my name is Ryan Delaquintana. Hopefully you remember me, we did a resume and cover letter maybe a little over a year ago now.
I was trying to get a job with a spefic company as a medical device rep and I GOT IT!!
It seems like businesses today forget that people are what business is all about. That's not true of Resumes, Etc. I'm writing to let you know that your company is a great example of what a business can be.
Your services and guidance have led me to a Help Desk position in Cheshire, CT with ACS. The resume you provided helped me stand out among the hundreds of applicants screened by their Human Resources Department, and your interview skills and other coaching materials helped me to stand out personally in a multi-stage interview process. I'm starting work on August 8, 2011, and I could not be more excited and pleased for this positive outcome in a difficult employment environment.
It's not often that something that's supposed to be all about profit remembers what it's really all about. Resumes, Etc. gives me hope for the future. Thank you for your time.
I wanted to Thank you for the fantastic cover letter and resume. I was offered the job after the first interview. The Director told me that he was impressed with my resume and that my cover letter was very specific and I was exactly what they were looking for. This would not have been possible without you. I just wanted you to know I really appreciate all your hard work and expertise. You're the best.
Thank you for your excellent resume, cover and thank you letters. I have received several interviews since working with you over the past year, and have identified some excellent career opportunities. The resume you created clearly identifies numerous areas of success and includes a terrific overview and metrics for success throughout my executive career.
I have greatly benefited form the career coaching that Fred has provided, including an overview of strategic leadership, decision making, and strategic planning in my current position. Fred is an excellent executive coach, providing valuable advice for how to position yourself in the next stage of your career. Fred has provided terrific cocahing for the day before a recent follow-up interview, offering terrfic feedback and intelligent questions to ask during the interview. The coaching session was invaluable, and provided me with confidence heading into the interview.
I have found his advice for how to structure answers to important questions during the interview as an imperative part of the interview process. After working with Fred, I have become much more strategic and concise with my answers, focusing on success metrics and my executive background. Fred as an Executive Coach is a critical part of the comprehensive package that he provides candidates, and I thoroughly look forward to working with him in the future.
Thank you once again Fred,
Dear Mr. Mariani:
I recently purchased a resume and career coaching from your firm and I thought I should write and let you know how pleased I am with both the resume and your service.
I was recently recruited to manage a political campaign in the state of Virginia, largely based on my previous experience that was well-positioned on the new resume that you authored for me. The career coaching that you provided to me was also worth the investment, as I was much more comfortable in the personal interview situation than I otherwise would have been.
I'd like to thank you personally for helping me in this stage of my job search. I will be more than happy to recommend your service to anyone who asks me about it.
In an age when so many products don't live up to their advertising claims, your products and services are as good as you advertise. I am one satisfied customer, and will continue to be for years to come. Thank you for your time.
Wanted to let you know that I was just accepted into the UConn MBA program. Thank you so much for your help in preparing my resume and letter of intent - I have no doubt that these were a significant reason for my acceptance. It was a pleasure working with you and I would recommend you to anyone in the future.
I'm deeply sorry for not following up with you sooner. Thank you for your services and preparing me for interviews. You developed my resume and made it more appealing to potential employers and recommended that I used the direct mailing method.. IT WORKED! I am very thankful for the many interview opportunities I was offered and after my year-long job hunt, I am finally employed! Thank you for such a great experience and for helping me see a light at the end of the tunnel!
Guess what, with your great advice and awesome resume and cover letter I was able to nail that job(internship) at enterprise.
I don't know all the details yet but I did get the "official" call today telling I got the job(internship). Again it was out of 342 applicants in my area they picked me!!
So i'm super excited and will keep you posted on my progress.
I was a client of Fred's back in March/April of 2010 and I had you and him help me look for jobs in the pharmaceutical/medical device field, and I wanted to let you know that thanks to Fred's brilliant resume writing, I landed a job in pharmaceutical sales with a Johnson & Johnson through a contract sales organization back in August of 2010. Before contacting Resume Etc, I had been applying for a job in this industry for nearly a year and a half with literally no interviews. Within a month after submitting my new resume I had interviews with Staples and Ricoh for outside sales, and within 3 months I had 4 other interviews with pharmaceutical companies. Finally, in August I was picked up by Quintiles and assigned a sales role within Johnson & Johnson that completely met all my requirements for my career.
I am writing this email to thank Resumes Etc. for helping me find a career in such a tough economy. I also had a question in regards to my resume. I was curious if Resumes Etc. could update my resume to add my current position. I am not sure what to include in my resume to highlight my current job responsibilities and the drugs I'm currently selling. From what I remember, Fred had mentioned that any additions to my resume may be included in the price I had paid him when I first contacted Resumes Etc. Any information regarding this would be greatly appreciated.
I did my resume with you guys a little while ago. I am not sure if you remember me but I am the Peruvian guy who graduated from Western Connecticut State University and did my resume and cover letter with you. I am just writing you to tell you about the success I had finding a job with the resume you gave me. Before I was sending hundreds of resumes and had only one call. After you gave me the resume and cover letter you edited for me I started sending them everywhere and after couple of weeks I got 2 interviews. While I was going through the interview process I received another call from Prudential. This was very exciting for me because before I had no chance to get an interview. Finally after 4 weeks and after 4 interviews with the same firm I secured a full time job as a Cash Analyst in a hedge Fund called IIG in Time Square, NYC.
Thank You again.
I wanted to take the time to Thank You for writing an excellent Salesman of the Year speech. I came to you in a time of need. You delivered an inspiring and memorable speech, exceeding all expectations. I was very uneasy about delivering this speech. You coached me through it and put me at ease. You were able to portray a side of me that my colleagues have never seen. I heard comments like: "That was the best speech I have ever heard." and "This guy is going places." My upper management were very impressed with the content. I wanted to express my gratitude and thank you again. I will definitely tell all my friends and colleagues about Resumes Etc. You're The Man!!
Dear Fred and Staff,
It wasn't easy but I finally was able to secure a job with JP Morgan/Chase. Having sent out over 150 resumes there were times I felt lost and hopeless. Many days when no responses would come I would remember you telling me to stay the course and forge forward. I truly believe without your help in creating a quality resume and cover letter, l would never have been able to land this job. You writing ability was only superseded by your insight and positive attitude. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and wish you and your staff the very best.
I am writing to thank you for exceptional Resume and cover letter you prepared for me. I applied for a position on Wednesday and received a phone call on Friday to schedule a interview. The interviewer informed me that he had received over 100 resumes and only selected seven people to interview. He stated the standard of professionalism, grammar and layout of my resume really impressed him.
I cannot thank you enough for all your help, I have been asked to attend a second interview next week.
Before using your resume and cover letter I was getting no hits. I then sent your resume and cover letter to medical technology companies and almost immediately got a response and was asked to come in for an interview. I just wanted to thank you and I have developed a long term partnership with you as my career gets more intense you will be the first person I will contact.
Fred and Chris,
The resume and cover letter are great. I am extremely pleased with the experience I had working with resumes etc.
Fred and Chris,
I just wanted to let you know that one of the managers for an independent sales company saw my resume online and it resulted in an immediate interview.
First of all, let me take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy Happy and Prosperous New Year!
I never realized how important my resume would be! Amidst growing unemployment, I accepted a permanent position in my field today!
The company searched online and found my resume then called me to interview. They said I was exactly who they were looking for!
It's been a tough road these oh so many months and I truly appreciate your support. Thanks again for your great work. You are an outstanding wordsmith.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
In 2009 I used a search engine to find a service or an individual to help shape and focus my CV. I fully expected and was prepared for a trial and error experience until I found the right guidance to help me artfully and effectively express my new, merged media background.
After a career in print and broadcast television, in 2005 I was recruited to a senior management position with an emerging technology platform company. Walking in the door early every morning was an experience that was the equivalent of immersion in a new language and a new culture, and I loved it. At the same time I recognized the value of my media and content experiences. My resume didnâ€™t reflect my new life, either in specificity or sensibility.
Presented with list of options, intuition prevailed and I called Alfred first. In our first meeting Alfred was the smart, interested and intuitive professional that I was hoping to find. He quickly matched his thoughts with mine, and with a few questions and a couple of well directed conversations, delivered a document that had much of the same information, but now reflected the new digital world and my enhanced value proposition. During phone and in person conversations Alfred provided , yes, skill and insights, but also an interest and an intuitive, again, grasp both of my history and what I wanted to convey. He also extended the guidance to include suggestions for marketing my experiences and my skill sets, both in terms of business sectors and geographically. The end result was that rare occurrence when delivery actually exceeds expectations.
I wanted to thank you for your help and guidance with my resume and recent job search. I must admit that I was a little skeptical at first about paying someone to write my resume, however, I found that in this day and age, there's a lot more that goes into a resume than meets the eye. As I discovered, all resumes are scanned electronically prior to even making it into a recruiters hands and if you don't have those keywords in there, you don't get eyes looking at it. I am living proof...I had my resume up on "The Ladders" for 2 years and only had 2 recruiters look at it pro-actively. After you re-wrote it for me, I had 23 recruiters look at it in a 3 month time period! This greatly increased the number of opportunities that I was able to consider and eventually led to the new job that I just accepted. I also wanted to add that your guidance and instruction on interviewing greatly helped and prepared me for every interview that I went on.
Thanks, again, for your help. It was well worth the money.
Regards, Tommy John
I like to take a few minutes to thank you for doing such a great job with my resume and an exceptional cover letter. Though at first I was skeptical but you made a believer out of me. I told you I needed something amazing to help me for an entrance exam to a school that only excepts 10 students at a time. Well you made my resume and cover letter look so good I was excepted without taking the mandatory entrance exam, that is required before being excepted. This news made my week especially being in my 40's going back to school with people half my age.
Hey! I'm thinking of running for mayor since becoming so assured with myself, but only if you write my campaign speeches. We can do this!
Again thank you, sincerely
Hi Fred -
Thanks so much for being a career coach for the past 10 years. With your resumes, guidance and advice, my career went from an Inside Sales Rep to a National Sales Manager. when I come to Resumes Etc. I feel as though I am family and that you and your team really cares. Thanks for all your help!

Scot B. Weicker
thanks so much for being a career coach for the past 10 years. with your resumes, guidance and advice, my career went from a sales rep to a national sales manager. when i come to resumes etc. i feel as though i am family and that you and your team really care. thanks for all your help.
hope all is well!
When we first met, resume etc stressed the fact that there clients are family and that you really care about each and every customer. Since then I have called you countless times, both day and evenings and you have always been available to guide me through the job search process. Your level of customer excellence is off the charts. As the former vice president of a company, I realize how rare it is to find a business with values.
Thank you so much.
I am writing to express my sincerest thanks for an exceptional job on my cover letter and resume. You took a mediocre resume that I had written and transformed it into a polished professional one. I can't tell you what a difference this has made. I am now receiving telephone calls and e-mails from companies wanting to contact me.
I've had a vice president from a major company tell me that he was going to pass my cover letter around as an example of what to write to "intrigue someone" because it was so well written. One interviewer told me that my resume was "incredible" and one of the best he's seen in a long time. Another vice president stated that he could tell that I was a detailed oriented person just from reading my resume. Having Resumes Etc. write a professional resume and cover letter for me was the best investment I made with regards to my career change. When it comes time for a promotion or a new job opportunity, rest assured that I will be returning. Again, many thanks. For once I am confident that I will receive a job offer in the near future.
I am a senior bank executive with a Fortune 50 company. I have been working with Mr. Mariani of Resumes Etc. since I began my career as a low level employee.
His guidance and support has resulted in my ability to move to other banks in higher level positions, while also getting me internal promotions. I can say without reservations, that my career success was due in large part to Resumes Etc. When you read Mr. Mariani's profile/background, you can see why he is heads above his competition.
Do yourself a big favor and work with Mr. Mariani, it will be the best decision you have ever made. His intellect and knowledge is at a level that is off the charts.
Thanks Fred for all of your help!
Senior Bank Executive
I apologize for not sending this letter in a timely manner. One week after our initial meeting, I sent out 250 resumes. Your help and guidance, complete with resume building and interview questioning skills, landed me three calls from elementary school Principals. My cover letter and resume combined with my experience has made me become a highly qualified applicant and candidate for their team. I went on two interviews and within two days I was offered a job as a fulltime paraprofessional at Burr Elementary School in Fairfield, CT. This respectable position will give me time to fulfill my certification requirements and give me extensive experience with Special Education students.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration, and thanks for the motivation and encouragement to secure desirable employment.
Just wanted to let you know that I recently spoke with an HR Rep at the company where I am doing an internship this summer and he complimented me on a great resume! He held a class on resume writing and asked if he could show it to the class as an example of "what a good resume looks like." Thanks so much for all of your help!

my wife nicky came to you to have her resume done and she was extremely impressed. i had this misfortune of using an online resume service. i paid 300 dollars and got a cookie cutter resume. nicky said you were great and took the time to personalize her resume.
can you please help me?
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all over the last year with my search.
I have recently accepted a wonderful position as the Executive Assistant to the CFO at The Nielsen Company and will be starting this coming Wednesday. Luckily for me, the recognized my years of experience and talent over (unfortunately) not having a degree.
I believe this will be a long and happy endeavor as I believe there is great karma around it ... I accepted just a few days prior to my birthday, and I will be starting on what would have been my father's birthday.
Thank you all again!
Thank you for all your efforts. I have found a position I am happy with. The resume was key. Thanks again!
Steven R Franco
I am getting interviews! Thanks to your cover letter, I am getting interviews. More "responders" than not comment that the cover letter and resume are motivating them to follow up with me.
This is something that has come about in the past week or so. Obviously, the job market is having a slight warming trend!

You guys did my resume and since then I was hired as a full-timer teacher. I am sure it was your amazing resume. Thank you!
Three resumes - three jobs
I am a true believer as they would say. I first used the services of Resumes Etc. in 1998 after a job search that had been long and fruitless. I had no idea what I was doing wrong and could not get my foot in any door. I had work experience, education and references but something was wrong. Someone gave me the name of Resumes Etc. and Fred Mariani. A new resume and the phone rang, within weeks I accepted a position with a company that I held for nine years.
Nine years later I was back at Resumes Etc. and telling Fred that it was time to move on for financial reasons. The resume got me in the door of a leading handbag and small accessory manufacturer/retailer. I ended up getting an offer for 10% higher than was my bottom line.
Marching forward to 2009 and the toughest job market in twenty-five years, I walked into Fred's office and told him I could not longer stand the commute from Milford to Norwalk and had to get closer. That was late summer 2009 and in December, 2009 I landed the new position in Milford with a step up the ladder and a salary increase.
Each resume has been crafted to highlight my talents and put me in the best possible light. They snapshot who I am as a professional and the skills I bring to the company. They get me in the DOOR. They open the DOOR, if the DOOR is not open, I do not get the chance to sell myself.
Fred sets you up in the best possible light and I have sent numerous people to him and never hesitate to recommend him.
I just wanted to thank you for helping me re-vamp my resume. I sent it out one evening to an advertisement I was interested in and by 9:30 the next morning I had a phone call and an e-mail from the employer wanting to set up an interview with me sooner than later. I had the interview this week and it went very well, the company is making a final decision by Friday. Whether or not I get this particular job, I know that I have an excellent resume that is getting me in the door and landing me interviews until the right one comes along!
Thanks again, I will definitely recommend your services to friends and family!

Fred and Chris,
Thanks so much for your resume, power cover letter, internet job search, and interview skills. I got a ton of interviews and a great job offer with more money, even during a recession. This is the second time you guys have done a great job for me. You guys are the best.

I managed to find a job 6 months ago in a consulting firm in Stamford.
Your resumeâ€™ definitely did the jobâ€¦.even in this bad economy. I have to
hit the lotto.
I thought you might like to hear something a perspective employer remarked about my cover letter and resume. He received over 200 resumes and said mine stood out and was the best by far.
Hey Fred, I just wanted to take a minute and thank you and your staff
for putting together a great Resume'. I have received multiple offers of
employment with companies in my field (landed!).. Now the biggest issue I
have is I need your help in writing letters of - "No Thanks" to the
companies I did not go with... Again- thanks to you and the team for all
your help in my career search and being available when needed!

Fred, I just landed and interview with a technologies provider company.
They told me it was one of the best resumes and cover letter they have
ever seen. Mike Salvano
hi Fred - I started a new job at IBM last week in Southbury. The resume
and cover letter you wrote were great! I simply could not have landed this
job without you. I really appreciate the time you took to review
interviewing skills with me. These skills will help me in the future.
I am writing to tell you that I interviewed for the Public Defender Investigators position in Stamford, and Bridgeport Court. Both interviewers stated that the cover letter I submitted was the best they have ever seen. The Bridgeport Public Defender said that she showed the letter to her daughter and told her this is a guy that is going to get interviewed. I thank you for your services and I trust I will get offered the job.

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the excellent service you provided. Several months ago I came to you looking for resume / cover letter services. I had my hopes set on a specific job posted at a local university, but knew that I also had to keep my eyes open for other opportunities in both academia and the corporate world. You created two resumes and two cover letters covering all of my needs, and the cost was very reasonable considering all of the hard work that went into my specific case.
Using the resumes you created, I was offered three jobs in the span of six months, during one of the most heinous recessions that our country's economy has ever seen.
The third offer came from the university that I had hoped to work for and now I have been happily employed for over six months. Also, the hiring committee told me multiple times that my cover letter and resume stood heads above the rest of the other candidates.
There is nothing greater than giving someone the confidence to go out into the world and succeed at finding a great career. You have done that for me and I can't thank you enough.
Thank you so much for your job search assistance. I am awaiting a final
confirmation from Northrop Grumman concerning my job offer in Bethpage,
NY. They have already transferred my security clearance from the military
to their company. They are in the process of getting the test results from
my drug screening and conducting a background check. Once that is
complete, it should be final. The job offer is for a Level II Program
Manager in the Aerospace Systems sector. The pay and benefits are
So, with the grace of God, I should have a definite job in the next week or so.
A huge thank you, I've been applying to jobs for six weeks without one response, your resume and cover letter landed me an interview with the first job I applied for.
I sent my resume out last night to the company I want to work for. I received a call for an interview the next day and they told me I was the most qualified.
In less than just two weeks, I have already received two interviews.
Thanks so much for the power cover letter. I've had five interviews already, your the best.
I received your resume and cover letter for one of our job applicants, the first thing that comes to mind is impressive, powerful and self assured.
Karen, HR Manager
I can say without any reservation that your services and dedication to providing exceptional service has increased the propensity for a perfect match position, exponentially!!
I would be most pleased to provide a letter of recommendation.
Just wanted to let you know I got a job with Sikorsky three days after you wrote my resume. They said it was the best cover letter they had ever seen. Thank you for your help.
Dear Mr. Mariani,
I just wanted to thank you for all of your help throughout the years. You've supported me as a friend and mentor and I am forever in your debt.
...Just wanted to let you know that Jill was accepted to the National
Honor Society and she was inducted at a ceremony last night. Thank you for
all your help and support.
...Stepping aside from resume writing, when I had a contest essay to
prepare, I knew what I wanted to say, but formulating my words to express
it in the most compelling way was not something I felt adequate in doing.
When I contacted you and asked if you could help, you were able to use
your mastery at language to help me walk away with FIRST prize!
Read full testimonial.
I've tried writing my own resumes in the past with only marginal
results, but what you have done for me is absolutely revolutionary! The
response from potential clients and employers was so immediate that I was
overwhelmed and delighted.
I can't thank you enough, not only have you written me a resume that I'm proud of, but the confidence to match.
The very best to you!
I just wanted to thank you so much for your service. I was very pleased
with the results and I have been referring people to you. One is my best
friend who was going to give you a call today. I've also been recommending
you to people at my church and some have taken down your information.
I posted my resume online with Monster.com on Thursday after meeting with you. Within 5 hours a company contacted me in Glastonbury and I was hired on Friday. Your services really worked!!
Thank you again and I will continue to promote your business.
I would like to thank you for putting together a perfect resume. Not
only did I receive a great response but also found a wonderful job in less
than a month. I was even told on one of the interviews I went to it was
the best resume they had ever seen and was asked if she could model hers
I am certain that my updated resume was the key to getting so many interviews (and offers) and have already told all my friends that it was the best thing I ever did.
I received two job offers already. When I posted your resume on-line I got great critiques. I was also impressed with all the time you spent with me.
Okay I know you said that I was going to get phone calls and emails,
but you never said how CRAZY it was going to be! I need an assistant to
take the messages. All I did yesterday was post the new and improved
resumes on Monster, Hot Jobs and Career Builder and I had 20 calls/emails!
What did you do put some type of spell on the resumes......lo! Thank-you
Fred did an amazing job with my resume focusing it more clearly and specifying the details of my experience. After sending it out to just one place to start with, I got a call from HR saying the president of the company (a large NY firm) saw it and wanted me to come in for an interview.
