What Our Clients Say About Our Resume Writing Services
— Timothy F
“I’m so glad I found Turning the Corner because from the first email from you and phone consultation I knew I was in the right place. After revitalizing my resume I started getting phone interviews, then after 4 face-to-face interviews I was offered the perfect job for me and it only took ~ 2 months after meeting with your team. I know everyone’s job search is different but I can say without a doubt that your team made all the difference in the world and helped me turn the corner!”
— Sonya O
“I can’t thank you enough for your assistance with my job search. I’ve never had anyone help me with my resume or job search before, so I was a little bit apprehensive. Once I met with Kendra and the Turning the Corner team, I was immediately put at ease. They got to know who I was professionally and personally so they could fully represent my personality. They did a great job of helping me focus on what types of jobs I should be applying for, instead of anything that crossed my desk. Rose did an incredible job of re-writing and organizing my resume to fully capture my accomplishments and qualifications. Since I was looking at changing fields, I needed to capture qualities that could translate to a variety of jobs. For anyone looking for a new job, Turning the Corner will give you personalized and professional service. They stick with you as long as you need them to, they go above and beyond with their services. They have a client for life in me.”
— Sara W
“I worked as a successful newspaper reporter for seven years. During the last two years, when it became clear it was time to transition careers, I began trying to figure out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I sent out resumes in communications, but with little response. I loved being a reporter, and so it was difficult to figure out how to get excited about a new direction. I was so fortunate to meet Kendra Prospero at Turning the Corner, LLC. Our work together helped clarify for me that my true passion lies in writing books. Since that session, I have finished my first novel! Although I’m still discovering how to best contribute and earn by tapping into my passions and talents, I can trace a sense of renewed vigor, purpose and clear direction to my work with Kendra. Before that, I felt truly at sea. I highly recommend her to anyone searching for their next chapter!”
— Sally S
“I came in and worked with Ginger last month on a much-needed overhaul of my resume and I’m fairly certain the end result is what got me in for the interview. What a dramatic difference your approach makes. Thank you for everything you do — it pays off!”

“Turning the Corner has been an incredibly helpful experience. Their professionalism is outstanding, but its their sincere drive to help us, the clients, that elevates this business to another level. The amount of time and dedication both Rose and Carrie put into re-working my resume, giving me candid, intelligent career advice and guiding me to a path of success was extraordinary. I have already seen real, tangible results and grown my network. Turning the Corner is an excellent place to jump start your career and I am lucky to have had them help me.”
“A broad array of services were offered and I had several ideas of what I thought I wanted done, but after a free phone consultation, I was able to narrow it down to one thing – interview practice. Turning the Corner assisted me with interviewing but also honing my resume and building confidence. I felt that they cared about my success and were very encouraging. I thought the technical help was excellent.”
— Macy M.
“Thank you Turning the Corner! I feel grateful that you could help me embrace my TRUE LOVES in work and life…and reflect on what I really want to bring into the world and help me create a legacy that is meaningful and free of regrets. The process allowed me to celebrate my gifts, and eventually it was clear that I needed to create my work myself. Since then I have pursued building a business that uses my strengths and serves the world in a way that brings me joy and serves a community I love. I noticed that your assessments really offered a powerful new perspective of what is natural to me, and to find the good in everything. Before I felt like there were weaknesses in my skill set yet with your reflection, I could see how all my strengths and weaknesses CAN play together in a positive way.

“Turning the Corner helped me through a series of exercises: characteristics and skills evaluation, core career values assessment, long term goals and resume services. The services are very helpful, but the people make the difference and are most effective. Carrie Ahmad is exceptional. She is caring, supportive and incredibly knowledgeable about the job market, navigating and more. I recommend Turning the Corner for career counseling to anyone needing support in assessing their strengths and pointing them in the right direction toward a job they love!”
— Judy M.
“I recently was terminated—the first time in my 50 years of being in the workforce. This was a very traumatic experience for me, but my employer arranged for Turning the Corner to provide me with outplacement services, i.e., coaching, resume writing, and identifying positions through electronic posting boards. Turning the Corner provided great resources and the Director of HR and Career Services, personally kept me going. She helped me identify who I was and what kind of position I wanted by working through a value exercise. Long after her work was officially done, she became my sounding board and encouraged me not to give up. She never criticized me, argued with my rationale, or discouraged me from applying for any position—she just LISTENED. I have found a position that I love and enjoy going to work!”
— Josh W
“Ginger was very helpful and responsive. The end product was exactly what I was looking for. The exercise of documenting accomplishments and the interview brought out details I typically overlooked. Ginger was able to pick up on key points and turn those into a quality resume.“
— John T
“I had been on ‘the job hunt’ for too long. I submitted over 200 resumes – and I still could not land a face-to-face interview, even though I was qualified for the jobs. It’s a depressing and frustrating experience. However, after spending some with Kendra, I made a few fundamental changes to my resume and by the next day I was being called into interviews. Matter-of-fact, I finally got a call from a corporation I’ve applied to literally 4 times. The new resume has made all the difference for me getting noticed by these key employers. The Turning the Corner team really knows what it takes.”
— John S.
“Kendra and her team at Turning the Corner, LLC helped me develop an effective job search strategy, provided helpful knowledge of the region’s job market and current demands and worked with me until I landed in an excellent position that offered me a 12% raise and a great career path for my strengths and interests. I was especially impressed by their collaboration with me to update my resume with the most current format as well as powerful wording to most effectively sell my skills and accomplishments. Additionally, their knowledge of social media, especially LinkedIn, was a huge asset in optimizing my visibility during the search. The peace of mind and confidence I gained through knowing that I had such a great team representing me during one of the most important decisions I’ll make in my professional life was well worth the investment I made.”
— Jessica H
“I am writing to express my gratitude for your services. Before working with you, I felt overwhelmed by how much the job market had changed in the past few years while I was working part time and raising my kids. Specifically, I did not understand what employers were looking for in resumes. Now I have a solid resume that is accessible, streamlined and I am able to quickly customize it to suit different job openings. I have learned about the importance of networking and appreciate your help in developing a plan to reach out to my connections, many of whom I wouldn’t have even identified without your direction! Finally, your focused advice and expertise has helped me to recognize and vocalize my strengths. I have enjoyed working with you and would recommend your skills to anyone on the job search path.”

“My whole experience with Turning the Corner has been a positive one. My first free consultation was with Ginger. She gave me so much valuable information in that consultation. Working with Mark as a career coach has been just what I needed to jump start my career transition. Mark was excellent at responding to all my questions and gave me good direction on how to pursue leads. Mark is approachable and easy to work with. I love that he took the time to respond to my concerns in a timely manner. Two thumbs up, Turning the Corner!”
— Alicia Burrus, Business Analyst, Specialized Loan Servicing
“Kendra has been a great help to me in finding my job. I was returning to the work force after working from home for the last several years and did not have an idea about my skill level and marketability. I knew I needed to find a job, but needed a boost of confidence and a strategy. Enter Kendra with her positive outlook and a working strategy to find a job. She helped me improve my resume, helped me developed a networking strategy, and helped me with my interviewing skills. With her help and support, I found a job within four months. These are skills that will carry me throughout my life. I would recommend Kendra to anyone who needs extra help finding a job. She is the best!”
"It was an absolute pleasure to work with Ginger on my resume rewrite and LinkedIn profile update. She was meticulous as she captured my years of experience concisely while showcasing my brand value in the most meaningful and relevant light. She is truly an invaluable asset to Turning the Corner! I am so grateful!"
"If you are in the process of looking for a new job, I would highly recommend you get an appointment with Turning the Corner! They really helped me update my resume and tailor it to the specific job I was applying for. It was such a night and day difference between my resume and the one they created for me. Also, got a lot of other great tips and coaching on the interview process. I can't stress enought what a great service and how much of a difference it made in my job search and application process. I will use them again and again, each and every time I apply for a different job. Oh, and yes, I got the job offer that I wanted!!!"
"I went back to Turning the Corner LLC when I decided it was time for a career upgrade, this time partaking in the Job Search Essentials offer. I worked with Elizabeth for several weeks and learned so much about tailoring my job search, networking, and how to apply for positions I was interested in. TTC teaches you how to turn your job search into a job in and of itself, but it's a job that becomes effective (unlike the months of searching on my own)."
"Turning The Corner is an amazing resource on the journey to finding your career. "
"Turning the Corner did an amazing job revamping my resume and gave me the confidence I needed to being my job search. Ginger and Jessie were wonderful to work with and really dug deep to highlight my strengths all while making me feel comfortable during the process. Since working with Turing the Corner I have had several great interviews and many new opportunities have opened up. I would highly recommend Turning the Corner to anyone looking for help in growing/advancing their career."
"You can spend days reading low-quality online resume advice, or you can get the 'secret sauce' directly from Turning The Corner and save yourself time and aggravation. A week after I started to put out my new resume, my inbox was overflowing with interview requests, I even had to turn some down! TTC helped me focus my search to better match my skills and be more judicious about the application process and my salary requirements. This personal service is a tremendous value for the price."
"I had the privilege of working with Jessie Roller to prepare for my first job interview in 18 years. After our mock interview, she had several great pointers about giving specific examples in my answers and framing my responses to include why I'm right for the job. In addition, her suggestions on what to wear helped me feel confident I looked the part on the day of the interview. I am gratefully Turning the Corner was able to squeeze me in on short notice, and I am certain I was better prepared as a result of their help. Thank you!"
"Ginger worked magic, turning my work experience into a sleekly branded, professional resume and LinkedIn profile. I'm now confident in the first impression that my resume will make with potential employers. Working with Turning the Corner was so easy--everyone was friendly and responsive. I highly recommend this service and can vouch for its return on investment!"
Meet Ginger Robitaille, Director of Career Services
Most resumes receive little more than a quick glance before they are filed or recycled. If that’s yours, you won’t be getting called for an interview. But, with our experience and expertise, we’re able to get inside the head of the hiring managers you’re contacting and write a resume that entices them to take a second look. Even if you are looking for your first job or your first job after years or decades away from the workforce, we can help you look appealing to the company you’re interested in.
The Truth about the Resume “Black Hole”
As professional recruiters who know how hard job hunting is and who respect every applicant, we hate to admit it but the dreaded “black hole” does exist. If you have ever submitted an application and then never heard anything from the company, your resume may have ended up there. Why? There are many potential reasons.
For example, did you know that some recruiters use automated reading software to accelerate the review of resumes? They do. And, did you know that certain formatting errors can cause this software to automatically discard your contact information leaving employers with no way to reach you? Worse yet, if you don’t have the right format or keywords on your resume it can be passed over by the program and never reach the desk of the hiring manager. No visibility = no job!
