Review of Product: I was able to go online like I was a participant and get walked through the program by one of the owners.  This is fabulous and I wish they had technology like this available when I first left college and was job-hunting! As a participant, the sessions are completely customized and personalized.  The professional in the room with you will have already reviewed your resume and have some tips and suggestions for you.  As a viewer, you benefit from watching the professional go through someone else’s resume while paying a much reduced cost.  The sessions are very affordable for the amount of benefit received.  Especially in today’s economy it’s important to have a professional resume to make a great first impression!
