Jacqui Hartley-Smith: Thank you for your feedback, which is most appreciated. I'm a believer in assisting people on their road to successful employment/careers. In this case I had been asked for a paid critique and realistically the client only required some small pointers as to what to change in their CV - which I did as a complimentary service and then yes, did suggest they re-send their amended CV. A pleasure to work with you :)
Jacqui is such a wonderful person to work with, she takes out the time and listens to exactly what it is you want to stand out in your cv super grateful. Jacqui definitely didn't waste any time and got stuck into my cv when i really needed it. Thank you again :-)

I met Jacqui the other weekend and soon discovered her wonderful honest, bubbly personality.
