Susan re-wrote my resume and I was so impressed! I hadn’t given her much information to start with but she managed to create a new resume that looks great and makes me sound great! Thanks Susan, you’re a legend!

I was impressed with the efficiency and precision of my resume, updated by Words By Susan. Susan is a perfectionist that has created a resume that will open new opportunities for me in the future, moreso than had I composed it myself. I would thoroughly recommend her work to anyone either looking for work or seeking to advance their career.
