Dana G.

Very pleased with my resume, the tone and language are highly industry-specific and perfectly relevant to communicating my skill set. I could not have conveyed the same information in such a focused fashion. Definitely a great investment.

PTCS literally SAVED ME! Starting this job search felt quite intimidating and overwhelming, yet getting connecting to this team and working with the amazing Latricia Friend was the best thing to happen to me this year.

Greg R.

I just LOVED my new resume! With a complete change in career, I needed to draw on many aspects of my old resume, PTCS, notably Latricia did just that! Immediately I had positive feedback, I even had one recruiter call me directly and compliment me!

Arlene W.

WOW! is how I can describe the fantastic resume writing service at Personal Touch Career Services. When I first talked to Donna about updating my resume for a career change-I know I was in good hands, she took her time to listen to me and explain their wonderful professional services. Latricia is phenomenal, she tailored and build my resume to perfection, I love it! She is truly a brilliant & caring person, right after she completed my resume I emailed it to a few agencies, and I got some responses right away!

Mark H.

I'm very happy with the new version of my resume/cover letter and LinkedIn profile that Dia Kline prepared and wrote for me. She was excellent in helping me pull out more relevant career details during our phone interview. She did an amazing job of synthesizing all of these details and putting them into a resume that is the most comprehensive and informative job statement that I have ever had.

Kessel C.

PTCS was fantastic. Dia did a great job with my resume while thoroughly explaining every choice along the way. I admit, I wasn't sure how much of a difference a resume writer would make but I am extremely impressed. Dia was quick to respond and the whole process was easy. I started to see results in my job search immediately and ended up securing a new position 3 weeks after I got my final draft of my resume.
