What our clients say…

“Where can I begin? I sent Jaime over a dusty old resume (with mostly federal experience) along with an amazing opportunity (non-federal) and I asked if Jaime could work her magic. Considering up until this point I’ve always done this myself, I was simply blown away with how she turned something bland into something extraordinary — and in 24 hours! She will be my go-to person for any/all resume updates, tweaks, and cover letters moving forward.

She’s an amazing asset to the military/federal/civilian community.” – Military Spouse & Veteran

“Jaime is by far the most exceptional person I have met. After asking her to assist me or provide suggestions about my federal resume, she took the time to help me understand a resume in a way no class or “professional writer“ could have done. She is definitely an expert and someday look forward to personally thanking her. I HIGHLY recommend her to other people. She is truly a blessing.” – Military Spouse & Federal Employee

“As an adaptable and engaged senior leader with over 27 years of military experience, I was beyond nervous about transitioning to my next chapter in life and civilian career UNTIL I met Jaime who worked and volunteered her time to help myself and others. She is beyond amazing and equally skilled at translating our skills into both federal and civilian resumes and teaching and mentoring us towards our goals. I went from multiple resumes and jobs not referred to Federal, Contract and Corporate companies falling over each other to offer myself employment. I am confident, prepared and ready for the challenge now after Jamie’s mentorship and help. I would recommend her every single time to any service member transitioning out of the military and wanting another career. She is the best- plain and simple!” – Retired U.S. Army Command Sergeant Major

“I’m impressed that Jaime, despite being located in Germany, offers her time to veterans in the United States. She gave me excellent information on how to understand federal job postings and use them to prepare a federal resume. She then gave me specific actions to follow and told me to contact her again if I need any help. I’m glad I stayed up for a call with her.” – Veteran

“I am so thankful I reached out to Jaime. She was a great listener. She had great, practical advice to help me focus in on a few key areas as I am all over the place with my goals. I would love to speak to her again.” – Military Spouse & Veteran

“Jaime is a wealth of knowledge and very professional. She took her time explaining federal resumes with me and very patient. I look forward to speaking with her in the future and highly recommend her to other military spouses. Thank you.” – Military Spouse

“It was so refreshing speaking with Jaime. Not only did she give me some great pointers but also gave me great next action steps. Looking forward to implementing her advice and seeing what the future holds!” – Military Spouse

“Jaime is awesome! She is a great professional resource but also a new friend, who is just an all around enjoyable person with whom to talk.” – Military Spouse

“An effective advisor who is knowledgeable about federal hiring.” – Federal Deputy Director

LinkedIn Lollapalooza

I attended the LinkedIn Lollapalooza workshop with Jaime and I had a blast learning from her. Not only did Jaime went over the basic of LinkedIn, she also teaches you tips to stand out from other people in the world of marketing yourself professionally. Everything was well organized down to the details of the professional makeup artist, and photographer on site. Lunch and coffee was also covered. There was never a dull moment in class, Jaime is very engaging. I learned a lot and will be utilizing that in my LinkedIn profile.

LinkedIn Lollapalooza

LinkedIn Lollapalooza came just in time. As a future college graduate from Germany, it is now time to look for a job. Before the event I only knew LinkedIn very roughly and always wondered what a “good profile” was. Jaime answered this question, gave valuable tips on how to stand out from the crowd, land our dream job with a LinkedIn profile and be visible to recruiters across borders. She knows how to motivate people, personally responded to each one of us and designed the event interactively.
