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)

“You work MAGIC. Thank you very much. I’ve already updated my LinkedIn profile and have saved 14 jobs I’m really excited to apply for. I think what is best is the confidence boost you’ve given me during a tough time by articulating my work ‘story’ so well.”
— Resume writing client (Learning & Development)

“Tanya provided 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 the first draft, Tanya was responsive, courteous, and professional.”

— Resume writing client (Special Education)

“I hired Tanya to rewrite my resume and bring it up to date. As the owner of a freelance editing business, my work is eclectic and spans several industries, and I struggled with how to present my skills and experience in an effective way. The questions Tanya asked me as she gathered information prompted deep thought about my clients and my business, which uncovered insights I would not have thought of on my own. The finished product is a masterfully woven presentation of my expertise and experience in an appealing package for potential clients and employers. Tanya was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I would wholeheartedly recommend her services to anyone, including freelance and self-employed professionals.”

“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. 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.”
— Student, ESL course in an online university

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
