What others are saying

I initially attended the workshop, "I Need a Resume Now", which was held at the Calgary Public Library. I thoroughly enjoyed it and then signed up for Joy's next workshop on creating and strengthening your LinkedIn Account. Joy provided insight and knowledge on both subject matters. She was open to questions and offered unique pointers on how to get recognized in an environment that can be highly competitive.

I attended Joy's workshop on Resume writing 2 weeks ago. What I would say her workshop offers the most effective resume writing technique that attract attention of recruiters. I like her approach how we re-write/reformat our resume during the workshop. I followed the technique and reformatted my resume over the weekend, and submitted it to some agents for 2 different positions. Within 1-2 days I got response from 4 agents who are interested to represent me for 2 different positions. Obviously, that’s the fruit of applying her technique in resume writing. Make time to attend her workshops and I am sure you will get passport to land your dream job.
