"Louise, I have to share this comment from an executive recruiter who read my resume that you created. He said: “I have to tell you that I never look forward to reading resumes because, frankly, they are always boring. However, I was more than pleasantly surprised when I started to read your resume. I was instantly compelled to read it — all of it — something I never do. Your personality came through — not just the facts and figures. The writing is exceptional and helped me to understand who you are, what’s unique about you and what you offer — quickly. Something that I usually never clearly find in resumes I read.
