When I was job hunting for the first time in a decade, Natalie revamped my résumé, updated the language, the format, and provided me with a professional, contemporary resume that reflected who I was and where I was going. Shortly after, I landed my next career opportunity.

Great to work with. She provided fast professional service and gave me the best CV I have ever had. I have received a number of comments from a number of my clients on how well my CV looks, reads, and how it highlights my strengths.
