You Rock!!!

Hi Robin, I want to thank you for the amazing work you are doing. I sent an old colleague of mine to have her resume updated. I saw it. You did a SUPER job! I’ve never seen anything like it. Not only did she love the resume, she submitted her resume in response to a job posting she answered. Can you believe she was made an offer just on her resume. That was you! You made it happen. I will continue to make referrals as I am sure that those who go to you will continue to refer. Robyn you ROCK!!! Her name is Yvette Quinones! Gracias Robin. Ingrid Mitchell, LMSW
