Manager, Utility Industry
"Working with Careers by Design was very rewarding because Pat helped me to figure out what was most important to me and to make sure that I was looking at new opportunities with these requirements in mind.

Ray A. Thomas
"Highly recommended service. I’ve tried a few resume writing places including some big names but never felt truly satisfied with the final product. I've had a 25 year plus career and I think to really write about someone you have to take the time to know them and that’s exactly what happened at Careers by Design. I talked one on one with the actual writer for nearly an hour and explained what I did in my work and then she took that away and worked on it. After a few revisions, it sounded so good I felt on top of the world. Someone had finally been able to explain all the things I did in my career in just a few words and it sounded great. Two weeks later I had the job I was gunning for so I know this works. Kudos to Careers by Design."
Purchasing, Retail Fashion
"It was my first time using a professional resume writing service and I was more than happy with the results. I don’t believe I would have come to the same outcome working on my own. This is definitely a service I would recommend to anyone seeking out better employment. Tammy incorporated the different direction I’m considering in a career change which was a challenge for me to put on paper."
Guest Services Representative
"Tami Cooper from Careers by Design did an extraordinary job with redrafting my cover letter and resume. I am starting out a new profession and was looking for someone to specifically help me with rebranding my cover letter and resume. Part of Tami's services are geared towards individuals who are starting out new career paths, which is exactly what I was looking for. From the very beginning, Tami was extremely responsive and eager to collaborate with me when I requested her services. It truly shows in her quality of work and professionalism at how much she loves her job. She is an expert at showcasing a one-of-a-kind cover letter and resume as she knows exactly what employers are looking for. I highly recommend Tami's services!"
"Worked with Adam, great person. He asked the right questions tailored to the position that I wanted to apply for. He re-worked my resume within 3 days. I am very pleased with the changes he made. My resume is more concise and more definitive to the industry I am applying for, making it versatile. Thanks for the great work."
Social Service Worker
"I had been using the same resume for over 10 years, obviously edited slightly depending on what I was applying for, and although I felt attached to it, I knew it was time for change. My dream job had been posted and I knew I needed an edge to be able to land the interview so I sought out Stephanie’s help to bring my outdated resume into the future. I can tell you, she did not disappoint. What I liked best about working with Stephanie was her ability to ask all the right questions in order to pull out the details that my resume and cover letter had really been lacking. She helped me to see what it is that I had been missing on those pages that really highlighted my skills and expertise in relation to the job I so badly wanted. She taught me how to be more clear and concise while still getting my point across. Another thing that really stands out about Stephanie’s approach to helping me with my resume and cover letter, was that she checked in with me as edits were made. She made sure to ask if I was comfortable with the edits she was making and suggesting, and this really put me at ease with letting go of this resume I had become so attached to. It’s clear that Stephanie is an expert in the field of employment supports. She turned my resume and cover letter into something I can really be proud of - AND I’m proud to announce that it landed me the interview! I would recommend Stephanie to anyone. Her calm, soothing demeanor really put me at ease with the process and she really delivered a quality experience and product. Thanks Stephanie!"

"The person named Adam helped me improve my resume into a one page professional look. He was very responsive when we spoke and handing my resume online on what is needed to be done. Due to this my resume is based on warehouse jobs and kitchen where it was done really well. Will look into this if I need more help and try another service if needed if I get an interview. All in all, what a awesome service that I felt was worth the money to have someone help me in Adam. Thanks"

She was sincere and so proficient – we instantly felt at ease. Her expertise in the areas of career coaching and employment amazed both of us. The work Tami did for us to target our resumes and cover letters was incredible! Once I had my new documents, and a boost in my confidence, I began searching and applied for a position right away. I received an invitation for an interview a week later and was offered the position! Tami, you are such a valuable asset to your team. You are professional, warm, supportive, and you know your vocation. Thank you!"
