Jesse’s Story

Not only is my chosen field highly competitive, but at only 23 years old and with minimal industry experience, I knew that to secure my dream role as a Firefighter, I needed to do something that would give me a solid edge over other potential applicants.

After a disappointing experience with a previous resume writer and a pending application deadline quickly approaching, I turned to Cathy. I was pleasantly surprised with how quickly she could complete the work, with her fast turnaround ensuring that I could still meet the original application closing date with some time to spare. 

Cathy’s work left me feeling proud and accomplished in submitting my application, something I am incredibly appreciative of. Her assistance was invaluable in ensuring the application process was smooth and stress-free.  

Notes from Cathy

Working with job seekers such as Jesse is always such a pleasure. Their enthusiasm and dedication to pursuing their career goals is always very contagious. I can’t help but root for applicants like Jesse, both on a professional level and a personal level. I do not doubt that Jesse’s drive to succeed and commitment will carry over into a successful and long-standing career as a valued full time firefighter. He is one of the most goal-oriented clients I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. It’s a quality I deeply admire in him.  I feel any fire hall would be lucky to have such an individual on their team. I wish Jesse the best of luck in his future career endeavours! 

Jesse’s Next Chapter

Jesse was invited to participate in the interview process at three Fire Halls. The resume and cover letter worked! I confirmed with Jesse today and he is starting a paid on call position in mid-September 2021. Anyone who is a firefighter or wants to be one, understands the gruelling process to become a full time fire fighter. Jesse has proven himself repeatedly that in the face of intense and challenging environments, as is often the case with job searches, he can, and will, succeed.
