Jane knows what recruiters are looking for and gave me practical advice to shape up my résumé for job searching and new opportunities.  Her experience gives her good insight into the search process and and how to connect with potential employers.

As a transitioning military veteran, I was grateful to have Jane as my guide, coach, and advisor on key transition steps including résumé, cover letter, interview prep, and post-interview follow up.  I continue to recommend ZIF's expertise for any HR needs.
