“Thank you, I really enjoyed the class, it was very well presented. I learned some interesting points that I will be able to apply to my daily routine. For instance, the idea of taking 15 minutes a day to set aside for strategic planning/self awareness is definitely going to help, not only at work but in my personal life as well.”

“When it really matters I ask Phyllis, who I’ve known and respected for many years, to review my resume. Recently I made such a request and was nothing less than thrilled with her insights and was amazed at her rapid yet thoughtful response. She stays abreast of current trends and specifically made some formatting changes that really make my resume stand out. I highly recommend her services. “

Ronda Weaver

“Phyllis offers a wealth of experience and Human Resource knowledge as well as a professional and positive outlook. Phyllis is very approachable, listens attentively, asks probing questions for more detailed answers and then provides excellent feedback and recommendations on handling whatever your HR related issue might involve. I would go to Phyllis as a reference point and give various scenarios to ask for her professional advice and each time she helped guide me in the right direction. Now that I’m currently looking for new employment opportunities and it was very clear to me to use Phyllis’ expertise in assisting me with updating my resume and cover letter. Although I would continually review resumes and interview candidates to hire, it can be challenging to write your own, so I wanted to go to the expert. Phyllis takes the time to sit down with you and put together a standout resume to help YOU! Bottom line, Phyllis enjoys helping others. ”
