Service Description

The feedback on previous jobs I carried out reflects the level of care and professionalism I always ensure my clients receive:

“VAppleyard is an incredible person to have look over your resume. I received plenty of proposals when I first wish to have work done on my resume, cover letter and LinkedIn account - yet her proposal stood out by far. She is an incredible warm and passionate individual who will help you with any issues or questions that you may have. Your project will be viewed as a priority and will be started on straight away! I can't say enough good things about this user. If you are looking for someone who will actively help you out and not just be another statistic, then you should most definitely choose her for your next project. Should I need further help in the future I will not hesitate to use her.”

Feedback Comments:
“Having worked in the legal and business fields for over 13 years, I have paid hundreds of dollars to have my resume and cover letter re-written by a variety of professionals to prepare me for different phases of my career. However, since I was making a career change, I knew I needed someone who was up to the challenge. A friend referred Val and this referral is by far the best event that has happened to my career. She was professional, kind and timely. I would recommend her to anyone who is serious about their careers!”
