I’ve done hundreds of resume reviews. Below are some testimonials from past clients:
When you’re looking for a new job or an internship, your resume speaks for you and you want it to say the right message.

For years, I had put together my resume myself, using free templates and guessing what should and shouldn’t go on there. It showed, too – it looked amateurish and was transparently done on the cheap. When I turned to Benet, she took the time to walk me through every line of it, every aspect of it, engaged me in why I had what I had on it, and what I didn’t have. She made sure that the resume showed the very best of me, and pushed me to commit to what I wanted to get out of it. It’s the best resume I’ve ever had, and I’ve never been more confident to show my resume to prospective employers, partners and collaborators. I could not recommend her more highly.

I used Benet Wilson’s services back in 2014. I was applying for a training position that could lead to full-time position in a top 10 market. I thought I had a decent looking résumé. Boy was I wrong. Benet pointed out so many errors and made it look more professional. I’m glad to say I recently completed the training program and I’m working as a full-time reporter in the Boston market.

I had Ms. Wilson critique my resume a couple of years ago and it still holds up competitively and strongly today. She gave clear advice and made solid changes I think transformed my curriculum vitae into one that boldly stood out among others and definitely got me noticed among my current and former employers. Ms. Wilson is thorough and detailed and doesn’t hold back, exposing any and all areas that need development.
