Your help on my resume got my foot in the door of 4 financial companies. I was in negotiations with them, plus another company seeking my management skills (another resume you helped me with) and a government job when I received a call for an interview with the government job. I got the government position! So, thanks for all your help. I have since helped several folks I know here at the Pentagon with their resumes, using your techniques, although certainly not near the level that you provided to me…
I want to express my sincere gratitude for the help I received from Mr. Peter Marx in helping me with my resume. I was overwhelmed by his expertise. I have been unemployed and looking for a job for over a year and half. With the help he provided I am confident I will land a job soon. His knowledge and expertise are extraordinary. I can not begin to express my gratitude….thank you, thank you, and thank you!!! Sincerely, Sgt Shirley
I want you to know that I just got a job offer this afternoon. It is with the Social Security Administration. It’s a GS-7 step 1, and then in 1 year I get promoted to GS-8 or 9 and have the possible opportunity for a GS-11 in a year or two after that. I was hoping for a GS-9, but I’m just happy to get into the system.Thank you again Peter, you were just so helpful in helping me get a job. Sgt Shirley
