I've been changing career paths lately. Mr. Gothard knows how to help. He is interested enjoys the faster and more efficient way of resume handling. Career Pro is amazing. Mr. Gothard helped me with very important papers of mine. He helped edit the grammar of my work and showed things I wouldn't have realized had an impact in my writing. I appreciated the service of someone who was willing to meet me at my own convenience. Gothard provides practical improvement of his clients, he has decades of writing experience, and he makes the authentic effort to improve them. He takes time and his very patient with his customers. As an emerging writer, he was able to help me express myself through words. Career Pro is the top choice for me. The newer place is in Atlanta call him at (404) 252-8777.

I contacted Mr. Gothard in early March 2017 because I am now transitioning back to North Carolina and I had gotten an interview (still using the same format he provided me in 2015). He updated my resume for me, gave me a fresh cover letter, and printed out new copies of the updated resume in the brochure style format. My interview was on March 8th and I presented all those documents to the three people who interviewed me and received compliments from everyone on the brochure style resume. Literally the next morning I received a call from the recruiter saying the company offered me the job! I am still in shock. Not only am I now a Financial Analyst, I was offered $15K more annually than what I currently make, I am eligible for a 5% bonus AND the company is paying for my relocation. I know this wouldn't have been possible without this resume highlighting my skills and abilities in a way that I couldn't. To the people who are giving Mr. Gothard low ratings, it's obvious
Mr. Gothard did a resume update for me, created a new cover letter for me and also printed out several brochure style resumes for my interview.

I received my completed resume from Career Pro Resumes within 3 days of our initial meeting. After receiving my resume yesterday afternoon at 3 pm I emailed 2 possible employers about 6:30 pm and received an email from one of the HR Departments this morning that they forwarded my resume to the Hiring Manager. Thanks for the Great Work Jody. Bruce

This business relationship with Jody was great. He was knowledgeable and to the point. His resume brochure was very professional and would be a resume that any HR Executive would put in the top stretch of resumes to be considered. As an executive in the HR, I have seen a lot of resumes and I place his resumes at the top.

Jody Gothard is the owner and only employee. He does not ever answer the phone but will return your call if you are a new customer. I was desperate for a new professional resume and agreed to meet. Big mistake. He promises everything, and provides nothing. He did not listen to me, and only cared about how much money I would pay him. Big scam.

Deciding to change careers in my mid-30s was stressing me out. I was not fulfilled in my old career - Retail Sales. From the initial phone call, company president Jody Gothard was very personable, professional, and detail oriented in his explanation of his company's services, and in his questionnaire. He spent more time than the 30 minutes I had expected to spend with him, he showed me all the different packages and samples of dozens of resumes of clients he had helped in my field. His samples were spectacular! I could tell why his clients are getting 80% interviews. Mr. Gothard is very confident in what he does, and, I knew that my career was in good hands. I sent the questionnaire to a about 20 companies, and a few days later got a call from a computer liquidator. I got the interview, and was offered the job later that day. Needless to say, I am very appreciative of Mr. Gothard and Career Pro for helping me.

After reading these reviews I'm glad I steered away from this guy. I asked him twice to give me a rough estimate of what a client pays for his services and he wouldn't give me any idea. I ended up scheduling a time to meet on the initial conversation, but then after not getting my questions answered and nearly 25 missed calls (he will hound you, read some of the other reviews) I decided to find someone more professional. After I had the courtesy to give him a heads up that I would not be meeting him at the scheduled time, instead of just ignoring this idiot, he sent me a text message that reads "Great as I booked some one who wanted ur slot! Good luck. I hope you get the same 75% interview rate but I would not bet on that with a generic resume written by a non published "writer"". Hope this helps you make a better career decision for yourself and not elect to waste your time and money here.

When i came to Mr. Gothard's office i knew nothing of resume editing. I've been working in retails for such a long time and wished to change my profession But didn't know which path to choose. I was very confused. The first thing that i saw when i entered Mr. Gothard's office was a big, welcoming smile. With his warm and professional approach, He gave me confidence and comfort. He was very professional and thorough, yet very pleasant and smiling and explained me every little detail in the process. He helped me understand which professional path i want to take and helped me focus on it. He reassured me that he would walk the extra mile and train me how to approach interviews and how to pass it successfully. I am extremely satisfied with my decision of choosing his services He is wonderful in what he does and very talented. Thank you ,Mr. Gothard's

I was looking for a good company here in Atlanta to create a resume for my field of education. I wanted to make someone make me look really good. I've paid my dues in a very thankless field of work, and before burn-out occurs, I decided it's time to get paid with a lucrative new job in educational sales. We all love positive feedback for our hard work, yet in my experience as a teacher I sometimes find that the loudest feedback is from parents of so-called problem children. While my colleagues and I can never please everybody, we certainly strive to please the majority of the people we work with and for. I was very impressed, therefore, with the overwhelmingly positive, glowing reports from past and current clients of a company which has been around since 1958, and has probably helped thousands of happy clients since then or they wouldn't have the longevity that they have experienced. That is why is chose Career Pro to write my resume, and I am very happy that I did. That is why I am taking the time to post this review. They were highly professional nad attentive to the particulars of my background, including my awards and extra-curricular leadership experience. The Result: A new job in a new industry, educational software swales, within weeks. THANK YOU to Jody and his staff. They know how to get you what you want, in a very competitive job market!

I was lucky to find this company on Google, and then on ThumbTack. I felt very confident about using them based on their great reviews on both Google and ThumbTack. They were the first one to replay to my inquiry, and I appreciated that. They were very easy nice to work with, and Mr. Gothard even made a special trip to his office to meet me on my day off. He was willing and able to work within my budget. I look forward to a continued great relationship with Career Pro, as they help me progress from a part time to a full time Medical Office Manager. They were exactly what I was hoping to find in a resume writing company - a solid reputation, convenient/individualized service, excellent writing abilities, a great price, and an impressive product.

There were a lot of places I could have gone, but I wanted to actually meet the person that would be doing my resume, and online I wasn't sure who would be writing the resume. It could be a college kid working in a dormitory. Or I couldn't even be sure they existed. I wanted a face with a company name. I Googled this company, and there were two things that I really liked about Career Pro. Number One was WSB TV had done a feature about them, and Frank Ski and V-103 had Mr. Gothard on his top rated radio show. After I further researched them and their credentials, I stopped looking. My experience with Mr. Gothard was very good. They offered to revise my resume as many times as I needed, and would continue to work with me for free until I got a job making at least or more than I was making. I was working in A/P, A/P with a company in January, when I first came to Career Pro, My interview with Mr. Gothard was very nice, very comfortable. I was very impressed with the samples of other administrative professionals they had done resumes for, both how well they were written and how they were laid out. I chose the fold open brochure style, as seems to be what the HR Managers are giving preference to, and I wanted something to stand out to help me transition from Accounts Payable/Receivable to Office Management, best decision ever made!

I am a long-term loyal client of Career Pro Resumes. In 2010, when I first needed a resume, I found them here on the Internet, and came here because this company has a track record of good customer relations, and before we did anything, they let me know exactly how they were going to write and present my resume to have the strongest impact in the changing job market. I was shooting for an Apartment Management position, I had good numerous job offers, and a new management position making $12,000 more per year than any previous position I had ever held.

Jody is exceptionally friendly, and as an attorney I appreciate that. I also researched this and other companies extensive before I chose Career Pro, and I must say it was the ONLY choice as it was the company with the most positive reviews, the longest track record, and the oldest resume company in the city and the country. From the first time I walked into their office, Jody is up front about the costs of a new resume, and he is honest when detailing the benefits and risks involved when writing a resume. Once I authorized his team to start working on the resume, he was available to me at all times. The turn-around time for getting my new resume was very short. As a Law Review Editor/Writer at John Marshall School of Law, I know good writing when I see it, and I don't see it very often. I was overwhelmed and very pleased with both the content and packaging of my brochure style resume. Jody is a pleasure to work with, and he also has a great reputation for his leadership roles he has taken in the Atlanta non-profit community. He is a professional in every sense or the word, and I highly recommend him and his Career Pro Resume award-winning writing team to everyone needing a resume uplift and a higher interview rate. Don't go with the amateurs when you need a published writer, and this is only published writer I could find in the entire Atlanta market. Ricky K.

This is not a resume service that will help anyone further their career (besides the fact that they have a resume)- this is simply a service where the consumer's information is cut and pasted into already completed resumes. The pricing is also misrepresented and misleading. You are given astronomical prices for varying resumes, and then coerced into giving a cost you can afford or agree to- which is then the final cost. The pricing given is completely arbitrary. After being quoted prices around $1,000, I suggested what I had been quoted by another service. The difference between CareerPro and the other service was that the other service would have made me a resume from scratch that was personalized and individualized to my taste. I regretted agreeing to the resume. I called back the same day. I was told my resume had already been sent to his "writers" when he advertises that your resume is written by an "award winning author" (him). Another lie if it is being written by others. I told him I wanted no bullets, and a very simple resume format that started with my education. The resume I received had arrows along the side, started with "profile" when I did not want that format or look at all. When brought in to change it, I was rushed because he had other appointments waiting. It was clear he had not created my resume but cut and paste my name, education, and employment history into another one.
