I am a seasoned Information Technology consultant, working primarily on long term projects in the healthcare and financial services industries. I reached a point in my career where my experience and skills allow me to secure more lucrative, higher visibility projects. Unfortunately, my resume was stale and ineffective in representing my talents and experience. I solicited advice from multiple HR consultants and was routinely referred to Robb Johnson with CareerFlorida for coaching and resume re-tooling. Robb spent 3+ hours interviewing me about my experience, career goals and search activities. What I received was a fresh prospective on my experience, as well as, a new resume and search plan created for me! There are many resume writing “services” which reword/reformat an existing resume or provide a boilerplate resume. Robb is a true consultant providing personalized service and practical tools...not just for a job search but for career navigation! My search for a new project has been energized, increased interest from recruiters and I am entertaining offers from multiple Fortune 500 companies, as well as, a large government entity. Robb has my unqualified recommendation. His fees are more than reasonable and worth every penny. Without any exaggeration, working with Robb is the most valuable career investment I’ve made in my 20+ years experience.

After 20 years of highly successful corporate sales experience, I reached a point where I was no longer motivated to sell my product line. I was bored and wanted a change. I'd become interested in developing Internet-based marketing programs for companies, but I was at a loss as to how to make contact with potential employers, since it had been over 20 years since I job hunted. I knew I needed a powerful, cutting-edge résumé to market myself and make the career transition. I heard about Robb Johnson at CareerFlorida, and my problems were over! Robb and I brainstormed together and developed a search-engine-optimized résumé designed to get the attention of prospective employers and motivate them to call me. Voila! In less than 24 hours after I broadcast my availability, I received my first call and landed an invitation to a job interview. The first thing they mentioned was how impressive my resume' was! Thanks, Robb! You're the best.

I had just graduated from college and wasn't receiving any callbacks on the resume that I built myself. A friends uncle recommended that I use a resume service to help make a professional looking resume because they have more knowledge of what employers are looking for in a resume. I searched around for a while trying to find a legitimate service when I came across Career Florida. He is very professional and will write you a personalized resume after he interviews you in person. After putting out his resume on the market I started to get calls almost immediately and I landed the exact job I wanted.

Had the pleasure of working with Robb @ Career Florida in early March 2014. I was extremely pleased with the final result, and the entire process was easy, streamlined and very efficient. I thought that Robb was professional and able to describe effectively why hiring a professional resume writer was so much more beneficial than trying to write it yourself. I had been finding that I wasn't getting call backs on jobs that I was more than qualified for and have total faith that going forward, that won't be an issue any longer with my new resume. Highly recommend.

Mr. Big Time Writer

I originally met Mr. Johnson fall of 2010 one month before I completed my degree. I called him seeking assistance and I am glad I did. He was so nice, inviting and knowledgeable about various career backgrounds and as a writer. He did a fantastic job on my resume and included words and information that I probably would have never thought to include. I began posting my resume online with various companies and websites. Call, after call, after call. All because of my resume. I even received a job offer and didn't post for the position just because of my resume. People thought I was crazy to pay $225 for a resume and cover letter. Guess what??? $225 well worth it. I have never had any problems receiving calls from any potential employers since 2010. Fast forward to 2014 and Mr. Johnson is still in business and he has recently made updates to my resume three years later. Still inviting, knowledgeable and super nice. He provided assistance with writing my resume which helped with receiving phone calls, it was my job to win the position. Invest in my Mr. Johnson you will definitely receive those funds back with a better position, benefits and salary.

Career Florida is The BEST!!! I still can’t believe the amount of time Robb spend interviewing me. We spent over two hours reviewing my work history, my skill sets and brainstorming career options. He also provided me with job hunting resources to find companies that were hiring and gave me insights into job interviewing tactics. Robb listened to me and he really got me and what I needed. He created a terrific resume that worked!! Robb also created a cover letter that got the attention of recruiters. Despite the tough job market, I got multiple job interviews and landed a great job. And the fee I was charged was half the going rate! Career Florida will definitely get you to where you’re going

I am so amazed at the job offer responses I received after 72 hours of posting my resume. My resume from Career Florida placed me in front of the line for getting that job interview opportunity that I would not have had if I had done the resume myself. Thanks Career Florida!!!

I would like to be among many to say that Career Florida is one of the most professional career services businesses I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Mr. Johnson, in particular, renewed my faith in myself as well as

the wide array of Knowledge, Skills, & Abilities I have to offer the job

market. For this I am forever indebted to Career Florida. My resume was

spectacular due to the unique process Career Florida uses to uncover all

your experience. The resume was not just a resume but an actual marketing

tool to advertise my KSAOs. Once again, thank you Career Florida.



PS- If you are transitioning from public sector (i.e. US Military) to private sector(civilian) this should be on your to do list as a must for a phenomenal resume that will translate what you have done for the US Government to the civilian job market.

After beginning a job search for the first time in over 15 years, I quickly realized that my resume needed to be updated. After doing research on resume writing services, I scheduled an appointment with Robb Johnson at Career Florida, We spent about 2 hours together so Robb could conduct an in depth interview to fully understand where I had been throughout my career, & where I wanted to go. He is truly a professional, & offered me some great guidance. He had my resume done in 4 days, & I began submitting it to various employers. In less than 3 weeks, I've had 4 interviews and 3 second interviews. I'm anticipating receiving either 2 or 3 offers shortly. There's no way that this would have happened had I not worked with Robb. I'm so grateful that I found him. Should you need a resume prepared that will definitely get you in front of employers, call Robb immediately!!

Career Florida is definitely the way to go for resume writing. The resume and cover letter that Rob created for me were spot on, polished and memorable. I directly attribute my current position to the resume Rob prepared and am so grateful to him for his guidance and encouragement. He is as knowledgeable about the job market as he is supportive of job seekers making Rob the consummate career mentor. Thanks Rob!!

The Best In Florida

After 17 years in the construction industry I decicded to make a change. Since I have not looked for a job since graduating from college I had no idea where to start. After much research my friend said I have to give Robert Johnson a call. My friend was right. Robert was the only person who seemed to be qualified to help me. After a long meeting Robert was able to develope a resume and cover letter that I feel comfortable sending to anyone. It was a very positive experience and very affordable. If you need job help and you do not contact Robert you are making a mistake.

Your first career step should be with Career Florida

Career Florida is a must do for anyone searching for employment. This is not a Word Processing service, but a true résumé service. Career Florida will write you a work biography that the reader will not want to stop reading and will invite you to come in to hear the rest of the story. Not only do you get a great résumé, but you also get great advice on how to best put your résumé to work for you.

Very happy with my resume and cover letter

Robb at Career Florida wrote an amazing resume and cover letter for me. He met with me for 2 hours asking me questions about my background and also giving me information on valuable resources that I never knew existed. It is evident that Robb really knows his business when it comes to resumes and job searches. I would highly recommend Career Florida.

High Quality Resumes Get you In the Door First

I have over 28 years of experience in my field and had always prided myself on my resume and interview skills. What I did not realize was that in todays market, HR Departments quickly filter through resumes with their automated tools. You may have all the experience in the world, but if your resume is not written properly, you may never get the opportunity to interview.



Career Florida met with me for an extended interview, and based on these meetings, revised my resume to get me in the door. Within a week, I had an interview and a job offer.



Remember, a resume doesn't guarantee you a job, but if properly written, can get you in the door, then you do the rest.



Rob, is an accomplished author on how to present yourself properly in a resume, and has helped thousands of professionals like myself get a job.



I highly recommend Career Florida, as they delivered the product I needed to get in the door first.



Way to go Rob!
