Resume Writing:

“Honestly, this is the best I have seen my resume and cover letter look. I have struggled with them for years and I honestly cannot add or subtract anything. I think you covered all areas of my career and consolidated it all nicely. Thanks so much. I didn’t know how much I needed you.”
— Resume writing client (senior staff accountant)

“Tanya was able to provide me with an excellent and professional-looking CV that consolidated my work and academic experience into a more readable and digestible format. Tanya demonstrated her knowledge by making several style and content choices independent of my input. Choices that often radically altered my CV. Every time I asked for a justification for her decisions, she easily explained why she made a decision and every time it was well reasoned and substantiated. I appreciated this independence on her part and think it’s a reflection of her talent and skill. As we made adjustments to the document after receiving a first draft, Tanya was responsive, courteous, and professional.”

“You ROCK! I listened to most of this podcast and it was exactly what I needed to hear. I have been a bit leery of negotiating but now I feel so much better and have wording to use. […] Tanya, I’ve been meaning to email you. The podcast helped. I was able to negotiate a $10,000 salary increase. I used the exact language from the podcast in my email with the senior leadership. You’re still helping me!”
— Career consulting client 

“Tanya helped me with my resume earlier this year. She made several revisions, where she asked the right questions about my job experiences and skills, giving them a more meaningful, readable and appealing form. Some of Tanya’s questions even made me think of my career path from a different perspective, shifting the focus to achievements. This gave me more confidence at job interviews and soon I landed a great job as a software developer. Tanya’s help completely exceeded my expectations!”
— Resume writing client (IT)

Distance Education:

“When you talked to me on the phone, I felt reassured. I also felt as if I had known you for a very long time. As students, we are very lucky because you have the ability to destroy, from the first conversation, all barriers that might exist between students and their teachers.”
— ESL student in an online university course

Translation:

“Tanya recently finished a long translation project on my behalf going from Ukrainian to English. It took nearly a year to complete because there was so much to do (hundreds of pages). Her work on this project was superb. She submitted to me all translations in a timely manner. I would, and likely will, ask her to work on other projects with me.”
— William Noll, the author of Transformation of Civil Society. An Oral History of Ukrainian Peasant Culture of the 1920-1930s
