What clients are saying...

Annmarie Z., Project Manager, Transportation Engineering Software, Canada / Germany 

"I am totally wowed by what Astrid was able to do for me. I wanted to reorient my career but felt insecure about my age and my credentials. I wanted to get into the high tech field in project management but had no direct experience. I had been a language teacher for the past 8 years. Astrid was able to pull out my relevant work experience and highlight my strengths and skills. My CV looked so impressive when she finished: professional, clear and to the point. And there was no embellishment! It was just me in a way I had never seen myself. It worked! The company I was keen on actually responded that they wanted to meet me because my profile was interesting, even though I did not quite fit their requirements. At the interview, with some coaching from Astrid and a new confidence in my abilities, I was able to convince them that I was the right person for the job and I got it! I'm over the moon!"

David J., Virtual Executive Assistant and Voiceover Artist, USA / Germany 

"Astrid was able to take my hastily-formatted resume and create a keyword specific, function-driven effective version which landed me interviews faster than I'd ever experienced before. Her attention to detail and vast knowledge of the HR / Recruiting world as well as the do's and don'ts of the ever-evolving demands for job seekers is tremendous. She considers all rules and current trends while creating a stable presence for the job seeker. She is extremely function-focused as well as design conscious in resumes that stand out. I'm proud to submit my materials and put my best foot forward in my job searches now. An extremely talented writer and online profile consultant. Highly recommend!"

 Phil F., Environmental Safety Consultant, British Columbia / Canada

"Thank you for your help and your thoughts during our discussion and the work on my CV.  Your questions made me have to reflect on what my real legacy was. You've done so much to help restore and build my confidence."

Francois S., IT Manager, Frankfurt, Germany

"Thank you very much for the tips. I wanted to let you know that I appreciated your work and diligence. One thing I especially appreciated with your version is the focus on figures / number and concrete achievements I was lacking..... The (cover) letter is great and I can see the enormous difference with the letters I used to write".

Romulo M., Career Changer Hospitality, Brazil / Germany

"I just needed a few minutes talking to Astrid to lift my spirits and start believing that my idea of changing careers was not just a dream, but a process that could be planned and executed. She helped me to overtake the first, maybe the hardest obstacle...me. Our conversations were almost like a therapy. She boosted by confidence showing my strengths and achievements using the words in a natural way that placed my resume at a high level. So, no more despair, no more waste of time and energy, but focus, focus, focus. Astrid you are special."
