What My Clients Say
“I have been offered employment already, and I truly believe that it was the resume you created. All of the interviewers commented on the resume quality.
This is the absolute perfect position for me. I could see myself there for years to come. Thanks for everything!”
“I hired Laura after an exhaustive search to find the best resume writer… I could not have been happier with Laura’s attention to detail and the quality of her work.
She took the time to understand who I am, my accomplishments and what I contribute to an organization before beginning to write my resume.
Anyone can write down your work history, but Laura identifies who you are and your accomplishments in a unique way that truly gets attention.“
“Laura, count me among the satisfied clients benefiting from your 98% success rate. I’ve just been hired into my newest executive role.”
“I want to thank you again for your excellent work. I found a new position quickly and your resume had a lot to do with that.
I had 4 offers and 7 interviews within 2 weeks and every single company commented on the resume!
Thanks again for doing such a great job! It is truly a career investment that pays off.”
“The SVP at Lee Hecht Harrison told me that my executive resume and biography were the best he had ever seen! He wants your contact information for other executives in transition.”
“Laura was able to quickly turn around a professional resume that received a lot of responses.
I was offered a position within a month.”
“Just wanted to let you know that the first time I used the resume, I got the job! Maybe I was in the right place at the right time, but after more than a year of searching before coming to you, I believe that your resume was the key.”
“I sent out 10 resumes and received 9 calls back, even from companies without posted openings.
I set up 6 interviews and received 3 job offers. I took the one I had wanted all along. Great job!”
“I’m in the second round of interviews with a Big 10 University. The responsibilities are a great fit with what I have done and would like to continue doing. At least 2 interviewers mentioned how impressed they were with the resume.
The head of HR mentioned that she saw a lot of resumes, and this was one of the best in terms of getting the point across quickly. Another interviewer wanted your contact information.
Thanks again for the great job!”
“I showed the resume around, and the executive recruiters went out of their way to compliment me on the quality.
They said it was very well-written, and played to my strengths much more so than the resumes they typically see. My schedule is already filled with interviews.
“I’m absolutely amazed at your knowledge of resumes and the job market for executives!
Your job search coaching brought up a lot of strategies that I didn’t even know existed. Now I’m ready to make a powerful first impression with the new resume.”
“As an executive in transition… I vigorously endorse Laura and her work.
After many hours of speaking with me, she crafted an amazing new rebranded set of credentials.
I am still astonished at how someone who has not known me for 20 years could define my brand so succinctly.”
“Laura is an outstanding and must-have asset in our extremely competitive environment. Her work gets noticed and gets results.”

I highly recommend Laurato all others who want to get on the fast track to success!“
“Laura presented my achievements in a way that allowed my resume to stand out in the pile of resumes received for the best positions.

Everyone that I interviewed with thought I had an amazing resume.“

I appreciate your assistance, and will recommend your service to friends and associates.“
“Your magic WORKED! John landed a $14K increase with an IT Director job.
He got calls immediately–more in one month than he did in the last 10 months.
As for me, I am amazed at the statistics – submitted for 10 jobs, received calls for 6. We will NEVER update our own resumes again!”

I am awed by your ability to pull together bits and pieces of the information that I’ve given you, and compose such a focused and well-supported resume.
I don’t think I would want to change anything. It is perfect the way it is.”
“Absolutely AMAZING!!! These are exactly what I wanted to market myself as–incredible! I am so excited about the resume. I showed it to my mentor and others that have worked with me, and they said you captured the essence of who I am as a working professional. They were very impressed.”
(Later: “Just to let you know that after I started using the resume I had many phone calls and interviews. Today I was offered a position as the Manager of HR.
It is exactly what I was looking for, and the pay is beyond what I was making at my other job. The one thing that helped me was my resume. They just had to talk with me once they got it. Once again, you’re AWESOME.”)”
“I have already received compliments from recruiters on the quality of the resume. I appreciate all that you have done to bring my experience to life on paper.”
“I haven’t had time to submit any job applications, but I posted my resume on Monster and Career Builder, and I have received 20+ responses. I have three interviews this week!”
