"Jaynine is instrumental in my professional growth. She is a professional brand builder, with the ability to bring your career out of obscurity and into the fast lane. I have seen a 300%+ increase in professional social media engagement. She will enable you to become so attractive in your market that you will be consistently recruited. I cannot place a value on her services."

          -- B. Watkins, Sales Manager at Townsquare Interactive


"Was encouraged by a friend to let a pro help with my docs. My network led me to Jaynine. I was a little nervous about retired military helping me get back into the business world. Then my dad was like, "If she can help Colonel's make the transition, give her a shot." Wow. From the initial meeting to her suggestions, to her follow up, I have been more than impressed. Less than a week after she finalized it, I got a call from someone interested. He said my resume was awesome. In fact, he said it twice in the same conversation. Thank you, Jaynine"

          -- K. Driscoll, Product Development Manager, Sunjoy Group, Inc.


"I can highly recommend Jaynine Ray-Howard if you need your resume written or reviewed. Howard reviewed and rewrote my daughter's resume and cover letter that had been submitted for college scholarships. Thanks to Howard's extensive knowledge of and experience in writing resumes and cover letters, my daughter received an additional 43% of her original scholarship grants. Howard asked my daughter information/experience we would not have thought of, less put on the resume ourselves. She is a true Genius!"
