Scott McC. in Barrie, Ontario, Canada says:

I would like to thank you for the tremendous job you did in helping me with my resume and cover letter. Once you e-mailed me a copy, I immediately sent it out to two job postings, and within a 24-hour period, I had interviews lined up with both prospects.

First impressions [get] the interview, and I think your service has [definitely] done its job. This is the best spent money for anyone serious about getting the interview.

Elfi C. in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada says:

Marian Bernard is my, as well as THE, service provider of choice in the field of resume preparation. In the past couple of years, she has composed four resumes [for me], each of which resulted in my academic and career advancement.

Marian is very passionate about the work she does, and it is partly due to this passion that she excels. She has an eye for detail, is thorough, and creative. Marian has exceptional skill and knowledge, researches well, and stays up to date regarding high-quality resume preparation expectations. These characteristics are effectively used when tailoring a resume to meet one’s needs, and this is precisely what I have experienced first-hand.

In today’s competitive job market, a clear “edge” is required, and having a resume done by Marian provides what is needed. Make an appointment! I guarantee she will create an impressive resume… even while you wait.

It is my pleasure to wholeheartedly recommend Marian for all your resume needs. For me, she is the ONLY choice.

Cathy B.D. in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada says:

Well it’s been a little while since we last spoke, however, I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much for the expertise that you gave me during the management resume writing and interview coaching sessions that we had.

Your guidance gave me the “edge” to compete for the position that I’d applied for with [a Top 5 Canadian Bank]. … I was successful in landing the position of Manager, Client Care at the end of December [2012]. I started my 12 week training program with them at the end of January [2013] and [was] assigned my own branch near the end of April [2013].

When I came to you back in October [2012], feeling terrible for having my position eliminated with a company that I’d been with for over 20 years, you helped me get back up and feel confident that I’d get the position I wanted again and be successful in my career in banking.

Again, thank you and know that I really appreciate all the advice and coaching you shared with me.

Bob B. in Thornhill, Ontario, Canada says:

Anna R. in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada says:

I met Marian as a result of an article in [five local newspapers] that featured her resume-writing business. She wrote my resume, and I was impressed with the fact that even though I only applied to two positions, I received fabulous job offers from both.

I would highly recommend her services, and she sets a shining example as to what Certified Professional Resume Writers represent.

Margaret M. in Toronto, Ontario, Canada says:

I am writing to let you know that I was the successful candidate for [a promotion at my long-time employer]. I am completely convinced that my new resume played a big part in my success.

Not only was the resume itself impressive, but it gave me the confidence to interview well. Our conversations, as we structured my resume, gave me a renewed look at how much I had to offer, and thus showed through as I answered the challenging questions posed by the panel.

Thank you, Marian, for helping me land this great opportunity!

Marc R. in North York, Ontario, Canada says:

It was an absolute pleasure working with you!

The process was seamless – you walked me through all the stages of the resume, and before I knew it, you had a draft copy of my Executive resume and cover letter for me to review in my email inbox!

Having not had my resume reviewed/updated in more than a decade, the experience was a little daunting to me. However, the outcome was excellent and painless! I have since been picked for an executive-level role with a highly-visible non-profit organization.

I would have no hesitation recommending you and your services to any of my friends or colleagues – best money I spent on ME in a long time!

Carla H. in Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada says:

I wanted to take this moment to thank you for the superb work that you have done with my resume and cover letter. After being out of work for over a year (I can’t even begin to count the number of resumes I had sent out with barely a handful of callbacks) and losing all hope of finding work, I questioned my knowledge, skill, and experience. I visited your website by mere surfing of the web and the transformation began.

The level of knowledge, professionalism, and warmth that you displayed was refreshing and most appreciated! I recall leaving our meeting feeling as though I had a job offer in my hand and not just my newly-created professional resumes.

I truly felt empowered each time I sent out my resume. Your continued support over the next few months as my resume began to get hit after hit, feedback, interview, and second interviews only reiterated to me what an amazing job you had done on transforming my resume. I had a Senior Manager state that my “cover letter was so interesting that he had to meet me.”

I am beyond words with excitement as I begin a new career! Thank you; I am most grateful.

Louise G. in Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada says:

I want to thank you for sending the first draft of the cover letter and resume so quickly. I am very impressed with your expertise in presenting the information in such a professional and impressive format and language. I didn’t ever realize I have achieved so many things in my years of work. This experience has been a very positive one for me – not only because I am confident that I have a good chance of getting at least an interview and a good possibility of landing this job, but it’s also been an ego boost.

I wouldn’t hesitate to refer my family, friends, and associates to you if they are in need of your services. You are the real deal. You ask all the right questions, and your personal experiences being used as examples were very helpful and interesting, also.

Stacy A. in Bolton, Ontario, Canada says:

Thank you so much, Marian, for the personalized assistance that you provided our 31 employees through a time of understandable concern for them [Bell Canada location closure in the GTA]. I can emphatically state that everyone was BLOWN AWAY with their resumes and cover letters, and your upbeat attitude played an integral role in bolstering their self-esteem. You definitely know your stuff!

Employees need to be reassured of the value they offer – especially if they face a corporate reorganization or realignment. You have dramatically exceeded our expectations, and you set a shining example as to what Professional Resume Writing represents. I would heartily endorse your services to any company – big or small. Best of luck to you in the future!!!!

Thomas W. in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada says:

I know that because you provide a resume service, statistics are extremely important. For that reason, I decided to provide you with the details regarding the success I’ve had with my newly-revamped resume.

Firstly, I applied to 4 jobs and was called back for 2 interviews within the first month.

Secondly, I posted my resume on Monster and was contacted for a position within 3 weeks of posting it.

Lastly, I’ve now been hired for the perfect for me job at this stage of my career – 1 month and 3 days after you sent me the finalized version of my resume and cover letter. Not only is the position better than what I expected; it came with a salary increase of 67%.

And people wondering if investing [in a professional resume writer] is worthwhile.

Rose B. in North Bay, Ontario, Canada says:

I had my interview [the afternoon before], then a written test. The HR Director and our Vice President were very impressed with the resume – so much so that they clapped when I entered the board room!

Our head of our Accounting Dept. was also interviewing me; it was quite the session – a lot of “That is what we are looking for.” Thank you!

Gael L. in Summerhill/Deer Park, Toronto, Ontario, Canada says:

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed our time together on the phone. Our conversations about my experience and background helped me to gain a new perspective on what I have to offer a prospective employer.

It amazed me how you were able to so quickly assess and verbalize my skills and strengths. You are clearly someone who has a thorough understanding of what needs to be said and how to say it.

You are a consummate professional – a keen wordsmith with an uncanny ability to represent one’s strengths and skills to a market you clearly understand.

I’m very pleased with my new resume and cover letter, and am very encouraged – even in the present job market.

I am so grateful that I had the chance to work with you. Sorry if I seemed picky or asked too many questions (grammar, etc.). I just wanted to make sure that everything was perfect, and I feel very confident that it is. You were wonderful to work with, and I would highly recommend you to my friends. I will definitely contact you again when I need another resume. Thanks for everything!

Andrea P. in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada says:

Before I met Marian, my resume had been online for weeks without a hit. It simply wasn’t selling me. After just a few hours with her, the phone hasn’t stopped ringing. It’s fantastic!

Jennifer A. in York Mills, Toronto, Ontario, Canada says:

Other than in interviews or nerve-racking situations, I am rarely speechless. However, I can state with absolute conviction that you – Marian – have outdone yourself.

The resume and cover letter you crafted painted me in such a light that if I were in charge of hiring, I would hire me (and without an interview)! I am so grateful and somewhat less afraid to embark on the job application journey, as I am armed with such an exceptional advantage with my new cover letter and resume. Thank you!

Don H. in Parry Sound, Ontario, Canada says:

I wanted to say “thank you” for all your great work and professional skills you provided on my behalf. The process was done on time, efficiently, and professionally, in effect making it a very pleasurable experience. I would not hesitate to recommend your services, nor would I hesitate to call on you again.

I received an interview request less than 24 hours after the application deadline closed; as a result of the interview, I have been offered the position of [Executive-level position in Operations], and I have accepted it. I believe it was the resume that gave me the needed sizzle, as I received very favourable comments from several of the interviewers.

I feel very confident that all of this happened as a result of your efforts. Thank you!

It’s been just 1 year since we met and you helped me with my resume.

Thelma N. in Bloor West Village, Toronto, Ontario, Canada says:

You prepared a professional resume for me [a few weeks before my employer’s location shut down]. Just three months later, I was transferred to one of their other locations in a position of higher responsibility. This was an unexpected surprise [because] I am happy that I am able to keep my years of seniority with my employer. I also received a 50% wage increase! I believe that your resume played a part in me landing the job.

Irene M. in Georgetown, Ontario, Canada says:

I had my first meeting/interview today. The firm offered me the position on the spot.

They appreciated the fact that I hired a professional resume writer, and put so much thought and effort into my resume; that is the kind of person they want to join their firm.

Great job, Marian!

Jessie C. in North York, Ontario, Canada says:

Working with you was a pleasure and worth every penny, Marian. The day you and I finished my resume and newly-powerful cover letter, I emailed it that same night to 2 of the most respected Canadian headhunters/recruiters in my industry. Here is what happened:

By 8 am, I received responses and meeting requests from both recruiters – before 1 hour of 1 business day had even passed.

I met one [that day] at his nice country club (I might add) to discuss fitting executive opportunities.

The other said he has an opportunity for me to build and manage a team in approximately 30 days.

Both had my old resume, but it was your resume Marian, that created interest and had them emailing me so fast, I really cannot believe it!

V. Scott in Oakville, Ontario, Canada says:

The very first time I sent my new resume and cover letter to a company, I secured an interview and landed the perfect job! Yes, it was that easy!

Who would have thought that a proper resume makes all the difference in the world? The Regency Group has the ability to present candidates in a positive manner. Selling oneself doesn’t always come easy, and Marian’s professional resume writing skills pitted me one step ahead of the competition. A good resume is a blueprint of who you are, and Marian was able to capture that – all over the phone!

Marlene D. in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada says:

It is a true pleasure for me to write this thank-you letter for Marian. I refer to Marian as my MIRACLE WRITER.

We’ve been working together [since 2007]. Marian just brings words to life; all you have to do is convey what you did (or do), and she’ll transform your points into incredible selling points for your future success. You’ll never find a writer who is more efficient, smart, professional, quick thinking, and friendly as Marian.

Ulf O. in Innisfil, Ontario, Canada says:

For anyone who is considering using a resume service, I strongly recommend The Regency Group. From the beginning, you understand that you are dealing with someone who really knows their profession.

Simon G in Oakwood, Ontario, Canada says:

I thought I had a pretty good executive resume, but I wasn’t getting any response with it. I walked into Marian’s office in the afternoon; we pounded a fabulous, hard-hitting resume on the spot; and I shipped it out by e-mail that night. I got responses the next morning. AWESOME!

Keith P. in Holland Landing/East Gwillimbury, Ontario, Canada says:

Without trying real hard I have had 4 interviews and 3 phone follow ups. [I attribute this to] the superb resume [you prepared that] got [their] attention. I faxed it to a company advertising in [a Toronto daily newspaper] on Sunday, got a phone call Monday morning, and was asked in for an interview as General Manager [in mere days]!!

Dorothy S. (a resume-writing colleague) in Victoria, BC, Canada says:

A lady called me wanting me to do a [position title] resume. I discovered that you [Marian] had already done one for her, and she just needed an address change; however, she had a deadline of less than 3 hours for a “dream job” she had just heard about. She was willing to start from scratch with me. I told her that I would not produce anything close to the calibre of what you produce, and since all she needed was an address change…

But what I wanted to mention here was the glowing report she gave me of your work. She said her resume was so very good and she was amazed at how quickly you could produce wonderful things in writing from just one point she would tell you. She was also extremely pleased with the resume you did for her husband and the position he secured with it, and that she had referred a number of people to you. I just thought you should know. She raved, and I told her that I totally agreed. If I ever needed a resume, you would be the one I go to!
