"Nicki Massman at Professional Impressions Resume Writing & Career Coaching is truly 5 star. I had become frustrated with sorting through my resume attempting to represent myself in a way that would get noticed. A person in my LinkedIn network suggested her. I e-mailed her, she sensed my frustration, and immediately responded rescuing me from my dilemma--revising an old and tired resume. Responses to positions I applied for immediately increased when I started using the resume Nicki interviewed me for and expertly crafted. I found a new position in a little over a month. I highly recommend connecting with Nicki! "
Shari Stumpf - Project Manger
"Nicki was a pleasure to work with - very professional and thorough. She took the time up front to answer my questions and provided valuable feedback along the way. Nicki clearly understands the nuances of navigating search platforms like LinkedIn and ATS systems that is a necessity in order to get visibility in the modern search process. The scope of her professional network is impressive, and her support did not end after our initial engagement. As a client, I continued to receive regular communications on search advice, networking opportunities, and actionable strategies. I’m pleased to have her as part of my own network now, and offer her the highest possible recommendation."
Curtis Miller - VP IT
" A prior coworker recommended Nicki to me. I had no idea what to expect, but she exceeded my expectations. Nicki made this process extremely simple and efficient. Utilizing her expertise, she managed to take my lackluster resume and turn it into what I consider a work of art. Whether you are just out of college, a seasoned veteran, or the next executive, I highly recommend working with Nicki to bring your brand to that next level. "
MIke Arshonsky - Senior Analyst
"I would like to say after using Nicki's professional resume writing service two times now, I cannot see how I would not take advantage of her exceptional service in any future career endeavors. She takes time and care to meet your needs and is extremely talented in resume writing. She works with the information you provide and tailors it to the exact way you would like to picture yourself in the eyes of potential recruiters through excellent word choice and deciphering what is most important on your resume from the mountain of information you provide. Please consider Nicki as you search for any careers as it is a sure way to increase your chances. Thank you Nicki! "
Christian Herndon- Account Manager
" I want to take a moment and share with everyone the professional and great experience working with Nicki Massman in the updating of my resume and LinkedIn profile. You can be the best sales person but we all know it can be challenging putting words to paper to clearly sell yourself. I gave Nicki a challenge in trying to accomplish what I needed to portray to move my career in a certain direction. She listened and worked collaboratively with me and you know what...a month later I started in my new position. In addition, Nicki keeps in contact trying to connect clients to opportunities. She provides a complete package to meet your needs and understands the importance of just connecting others. I highly recommend Nicki to assist you in finding the next great thing in your career. Please feel free to connect with me if you have any questions. Thanks Nicki!"
Nancy Sicaldes-Tucker - HR Systems Analyst
"I am a client of Nicki’s during my career transition this year. I engaged with Nicki after receiving her invitation for a free resume review on LinkedIn. Knowing the importance of an appropriate and strategic resume, I decided to send my document to her. What followed was a comprehensive review that included a skills and experience rebranding, not just editing of my CV. Nicki’s understanding of what recruiters look for, the ATS system, and use of keywords is unparalleled. Nicki’s scope of work for me included a resume re-rewrite, a personal bio, LinkedIn profile, and standard cover letter. However, most valuable is Nicki’s coaching on distilling pertinent skills and experience for resumes and cover letters based on a particular job description or statement of need. If you’re like me and have a long career across various industries, and seek help defining strengths that speak to what recruiters and hiring managers look for, give Nicki Massman at Professional Impressions a try. I wholeheartedly recommend her work and professional attention to assisting job seekers. With her help I was able to land a perfect role after learning how to better market my skills. "
Ron Howard - Vice President
"Nicki did an amazing job and I couldn’t be happier! I fired my last ‘writing’ service. After promising to ‘work closely with me’ they refused phone contact. That really makes one wonder who the work gets subcontracted to. Not with Nicki; she put me at ease during my skeptical interview before I hired her. Then she blew me away with her professionalism, her processes, and most importantly the result. HIRE HER!!!"
- David Leach- Customer Success/Account Executive
"After several months of searching for work using the resume I wrote myself, I was not receiving the desired response from employers. I screened several resume writers and decided to engage with Nicki to help create a resume and LinkedIn profile that would attract the right attention. Nicki worked closely with me and took the time to understand my background and the type of employer I was targeting. Within a few days she presented me with the first draft of a new resume and cover letter, we then discussed the documents and she updated them based upon feedback from our reviews. With Nicki’s help, my resume and LinkedIn profile received more attention in three days than the original version did in the previous three months. I would use Nicki’s services again and highly recommend her to others who are in a similar situation."
- Paul Wunderlin- Security Risk Analyst
"Nicki was a savior for us. After getting scammed, twice, for a promised resume and LinkedIn revamp, it was a relief to find and work with Nicki. Not only was she incredibly responsive and kind, but she also turned out a resume within a few days that exceeded expectations. She was in constant contact which put our minds at ease. After updating the LinkedIn profile alone, the traffic has increased. Hopefully, this turns into a job offer, but honestly, after the experiences we had, this was a welcome change and so worth it. I highly recommend working with Nicki!"
- Ashlee Essary- Senior HR Adminiistrator
"Nicki is great at not only writing a very professional, eye catching resume, she also takes the time to really understand her client's needs. Her resumes get noticed, and I appreciate her approach, professionalism, and attention to detail. I can't recommend Nicki enough. Thanks Nicki!"
-Geoff Ansara- Senior Manager Infrastructure
"Nicki has assisted me with resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn Profile and has always been a great resource. She is full of great ideas, a positive force and adept at coaching. Most recently Nicki has also provided business introductions for me that will lead to expanding my consulting business. I highly recommend Nicki and the value she brings."
- John C. Baumgarten Sr - Consultant
"I have known Nicki for several years but have just recently engaged with her in her area of expertise, and I am glad that I did. It had been awhile since I had revamped my resume, and Nicki did a really good job of helping me clean things up, modernize some things and bring key experiences to the forefront of my CV. We worked together on a "long version" and a "short version", which have both been invaluable for me in my discussions. One of the great things about Nicki is how well she is connected in the Colorado market, as she has been active in bringing potential opportunities to my attention and helping me connect with some key individuals that have helped extend my reach into the market. I always thought I was pretty well connected, but Nicki has really helped me refine and bring focus to the types of connections and tools to use in my professional journey. I like the fact that it hasn't been a "one and done" type of engagement with Nicki, but instead it has turned into a good professional "give and take" sort of relationship where we both know we can reach out to get guidance and connections when needed."
- Rob Grant - CTO/CIO
"Nicki has revised my resume several times over the years. Each time it has led to interviews and job offers. Nicki has a keen eye for what makes for a good resume. Her concise approach results in resumes that provide hiring managers with the information they need to make a quick decision, which is critical in today's career market."
- Walter Peterscheck- Technical Program Manager
"It's my pleasure to recommend Nicki to anyone seeking to revamp their professional resume and LinkedIn profile, regardless of industry or level of position. Nicki is a tremendous asset and can take your accomplishments and make them sing. The end result is an extremely polished, professional and modern take on your professional calling card. She's easy to work with, reliable and is super talented. I'd recommend her without hesitation and, in fact, have done just that to many members of my network."
- Kristin Thielking - Chief People Officer
"With great pleasure I am recommending Nicki Massman as a resume writer / career coach. I have used her services in the resume writing area, career coach and all areas related to having a successful job search experience. She is very knowledgeable of the recruiting process and has an effective system that covers all areas of the recruiting process. Her system is very easily understandable and easy to use, and most important, it produces results. If I find myself in a similar situation in the future, I will certainly utilize her services!"
- Luis Amador - Project/Program Manager
"Nicki has a grasp on current resume trends and has great insight into writing resumes. Her professional recommendation for my resume really ramped up my response rate. I have had 8 interviews in 12 business days! I highly recommend her services. Thank you Nicki! "
- Avery Hale- Instructional Designer
"I worked with Nicki on writing a professional resume and LinkedIn that highlighted the skills that I bring to the table. She was knowledgeable, professional, and easy to work with. She took the time needed to understand the details of my professional qualifications and captured them wonderfully in the documentation provided. I also walked away from our conversations with a new outlook on career advancement and how to present myself. I highly recommend working with Nicki if you want action on seeking the next opportunity in your career."
- Luke Prescott - Project Delivery Manager
"I met Nicki recently in a networking group. She gave a presentation about Career Advice. I reached out to her for some assistance with my resume. What impressed me the most about my interaction with her services was that she responded so quickly to my emails and questions. At a time like this, when job seekers are searching for employment, Nicki is a great person to go to for assistance. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking assistance with their career search."
- Daniel O'Hayre - Corporate Trainer
"Nicki has been a great resource during my job search! She helped me update my resume to get noticed! She is responsive and worked hard on my behalf. If she didn’t have a connection where I was looking, she created one. Ultimately, I landed a position with a company I was very interested in and Nicki assisted with a great connection from her vast network!"
- Kellie Wisbrock - Operations Executive
"Nicki was referred to me by a professional in my career connect group. I knew that my resume needed a re-fresh, and although I thought it was pretty polished - it just needed "something" else. After a consultation call and providing some additional information from past experiences in my roles, Nicki was able to reconstruct and redesign my resume with a fresh look. I was excited to see how changing the flow of experiences and using updated terminology took my resume to a new level. When it comes to investing in yourself and making a career move, it pays to hire a professional. "
- Jason Altshuler- Director of Facilities
"Exceptional work! If you are like me, a business professional that finds self-articulation difficult, then I highly recommend you seek Nicki's assistance. She has the unique ability to bring clarity and structure to all of those hard to articulate facets of your past experiences and future career goals!"
- Jeff Leva, Product Engineer/Support Specialist
"Nicki and her premium package were definitely worth the investment. Nicki's precision, guidance and follow up were spot on! Nicki's services will get your foot in the door, but it's totally up to you to land the deal once you're in!!! And she even provides strategic pointers with that process."
- Andre Washington, Senior Manager, Education
“Rewriting a resume can be a daunting task. I recently contracted Nicki to update my resume and I could not be happier with the quality of work that she produced. Not only did Nicki take the time to understand my needs but she also had an in-depth conversation with me about how I would like to advance my career and was able to help me articulate what message I wanted to convey to future employers. I immediately knew I had made the right choice! I am so incredibly grateful for the work she did and did not hesitate to send colleagues her way. If you’re considering updating or starting fresh I would highly recommend Nicki.”
- Kama Winter, B2B Marketing/Senior Manager
“Nicki Massman is amazing! Her creative ability in re-branding LinkedIn profiles, and enhancing, streamlining website content was exactly what I needed. My experience working with Nicki was an absolute pleasure. She is fun, yet professional, responsive, concise, timely, and highly creative. If you are looking to update your image on LinkedIn, have your resume stand apart, or share succinct web content, Nicki is the writing expert for you!”
- Jennifer Beaumont, Corporate Trainer
“Nicki has been instrumental in my career search and growth process! Initially I thought I had a decent resume that could use some additional skills added so I could find a position on a new career path and assumed that would be it. I realized I needed a bit more help deciding “what I want to be when I grow up” and thought I would work with Nicki for a couple of coaching sessions. After my first coaching session, I was more energized, confident and excited about my career path than I have been in years! Nicki took the time to work through my past jobs and desired positions and helped me determine a path that utilizes my strengths and provides opportunities for my goals. Then I got my actual resume back, and WOW! I’ve had so much great feedback and I’m in the final stages with two companies. I was even offered a position I turned down because I am confident I will find exactly what I want and avoid having to take a position to “fill the gap”. I have recommended Nicki to multiple people and they have great things to say about her as well. If you’re on the fence and asking yourself “is it worth it?” I would heartily say, “Yes!”
- Nicole Lemmon, Inside Sales Manager
“Nicki is a very important ally for a job seeker to have. Nicki cares deeply about her clients’ success and is dedicated to giving her clients the tools they need to find a job. She is excellent at crafting resumes and also has critical knowledge to support her clients in such key areas as using LinkedIn and other job boards, networking with potential employers, and finding unposted jobs. Nicki especially helped me at one point in my job search when I had become really stuck, and gave me some tools to propel me forward and land my next job. If you are looking for a new job an investment in Nicki’s services is extremely worthwhile, ans if you take her advice to heart it will put you leaps ahead of much of your competition. I endorse Nicki without any reservations and would use her services again if necessary in a heartbeat.”
- Michael Souder, Project & Program Manager
“I had not touched my resume in well over a decade. When I needed an update I interviewed four different resume writers before settling on Nicki. She was very personable which eased a lot of anxiety about the process. The resume was professional and very impactful. It opened a lot of doors for me and I’m happy to report that I recently landed a new position. Thank you, Nicki, for helping me advance professionally.”
- Brandy Cline, Executive Strategist, Client Partner & Leader
“Nicki, thank you so very much for your hard work and efforts on my resume and cover letter. I am confident that my new resume and cover letter will bring me great success in my job search. You are a true professional and great at what you do. You listened during our initial conversation and delivered a resume that clearly showcases my skills and experience in a way that I never would have been able to articulate. I will be sure to recommend you to anyone in need of help like I was. Thanks again.”
- Shequena Gray, Administrative Services Director
“After several job applications that didn’t yield any results for me, I met with Nicki to review my resume. It’s a shame that I never had the opportunity to work with Nicki sooner because after she interviewed me to rewrite my entire resume and helped me revamp my LinkedIn profile, I saw a dramatic change in the number of leads I was able to successfully follow up. I realized that marketing oneself is really tough and I was selling myself short. Getting an objective review of my career and my accomplishments with Nicki was the best thing I’ve done in years. I highly recommend working with Nicki if you’re actively job searching or want to get ahead of the pack as far getting your name in front of the right people. Nicki is an absolute pleasure to work with.”
- Gabe Moncada, Customer Success Director
“After evaluating three different services, I chose to go with Nicki as she provided a personal touch rather than a corporate process. She helped me elevate my positives and turned out a great resume. I had such a great experience, I have recommended her to some of my colleagues.”
- Kenneth (Ken) McNeil, VP IT/Director of IT
“While looking at the HealtheCareers website, I saw an opportunity to have my current resume reviewed without any obligation, so I decided to submit my resume to them. I immediately received feedback from Nicki, who is a Professional Resume Writer. Nicki had provided me with such valuable points and feedback, so I decided to let her reformat my current resume. In just a few days she had the job done and it looks fantastic! I would highly recommend Nicki as she truly is a pro at what she does. Thanks again Nicki!”
- Janice Rompala. RN, BSN
“Nicki, has done an amazing job for me. Before using Nicki’s services, I was getting zero response to my resume. After Nicki worked her magic, I applied to five job openings on a Friday and on Monday, four of the five reached out to me. I have had two great interviews because of the advice Nicki imparted to me. Thanks again Nicki.”
- Greg McCollum, Director of Training/District Manager
“Nicki did an outstanding job on my resume and cover letter. She was able to provide the marketing I needed to my resume and assist me with my job search. I would recommend Nicki to anyone who is need of an updated resume and cover letter. Her coaching and direction to get me back in the Denver market was exactly what I needed.”
- Jodi Foster, Senior Project/Program Manager
“I’ve now worked with Nicki over the past few weeks and I would highly recommend her as a resume writer and a career coach. Working with Nicki on my resumes, cover letters and interview material has been exactly what I was looking for to start my job search. I was lucky to have run into her at a local job fair!”
- Matt Steck, Director of Operations
“I cannot rave enough about how much Nicki helped me! Her version of my resume not only meant I stopped going on interviews for jobs I didn’t want, but also increased the number of people contacting to see about hiring me. I had more people contact ME based on her resume than I had to contact on my own. She is amazing, kind and works with you to make sure it’s what you want and need. I’ve already recommended her to three friends. You need resume/LinkedIn help, she’s one to use!”
- Nicole Wolf, Digital Marketing, Content Creation
“Nicki is a true professional that I have had the privilege to work with. She really understands what organizations are looking for and provides the right amount of guidance to help you communicate your value, brand and qualifications.”
- Meghan Beaudoin, Principal at Statera Inc.
“I’ve worked with Nicki in the past, and my wife and I worked with her recently to polish up our resumes and LinkedIn profiles. Nicki was awesome! She had excellent ideas, she communicates really well, she’s not pushy, she’s fun to work with, she listens well to what you have to say, and she even passed my resume along to her network. I’ve gotten several new contacts in a very short period of time as a direct result of her suggestions. My wife and I would recommend her very highly to anyone that not only wants to update their resume, but expand their social media presence. Thanks, Nicki.”
- Steve Dronzek, Senior ETL Database Consultant at Planet Consulting
“I was referred to Nicki from an old work colleague when I decided to start looking for a new position and I will say that working with Nicki on my resumes, cover letters and over all job searching and interview material was a joy and worth every moment. I would recommend that anyone starting up their job search or even revamping their current search to get in touch with Nicki and see how she could energize their search and land that perfect job. If/when I am in need of these services again, I will not hesitate in contacting Nicki again.”
- Jim (James) Blish, Network Administrator
“Nicki, is on point 100% when it comes to resume services. Nicki has a true gift and a vision for attention to detail. I hired Nicki to work on my resume and Nicki produced exceptional results. Nicki was able to identify and capture my core strengths without over exaggerating and with minimal amount of words. Nicki will truly transform the way you see yourself. Nicki’s services demonstrate how passionate she is and I am truly honored to have found her. I would definitely embrace all the other services that Nicki provides. Thanks again, Nicki.”
- Stephon Sands, Technical Network Engineer – Cisco
“Nicki is an outstanding partner with whom to write and polish your resume and LinkedIn profile. She is efficient and attends to the holistic quality of the package. Her honesty and value were both certainly evident in our interactions. I look forward to working with her again, and I recommend contacting her if you need resume services.”
- William Ulicny, Program Manager – Department of Homeland Security
“I recently had Nicki Massman assist me in revising my resume and in providing advice on making this document more successful in attracting the attention of recruiters and potential employers. Nicki was very thorough in uncovering and understanding my skills and experience, and was extremely committed to providing an excellent product. Along the way, Nicki gave me many excellent tips about how to best present my credentials via the resume, and showed consistent commitment to meeting my needs.
The excellent resume she provided has already produced significant quantitative improvements in my job search; improvements that can only be explained by the quality of the product. After delivery of the resume, Nicki has remained in touch and available for discussions and questions. It is clear from the interactions we’ve had that Nicki is a dedicated professional seeking the best for her clients and is actively developing new approaches to her craft.
I highly recommend Nicki Massman for her technical proficiencies, interpersonal skills, and approaches to serving her client’s needs.”
- William Evans, Independent Enterprise Software Consultant
“I hired Nicki to write two resumes for me since I wasn’t getting any call backs on the resumes I had written. She was very professional when she interviewed me and delivered two excellent resumes. I have since had many calls on job applications and I am getting much better results from good quality companies. I highly recommend Nicki as a resume writer and job coach.
Just wanted to let you know I sent my resumes out to a few places and have lined up two interviews next week for QC/Compliance in the mortgage industry. I’d sent a number of resumes for jobs to one organization, but when I changed the resume to the one you put together they took notice! Thanks for your help.”
- Danielle Bedore, Consumer Affairs Examiner – W.J. Bradley Mortgage
“I recently changed industries, which can be daunting. I needed a new resume to help me make this career change, and Nicki went above and beyond my expectations.
In addition to improving the formatting, flow, and readability of my resume, Nicki helped me re-orient my experience in order to appeal to the new career I was seeking. We went through the job description and came up with specific examples of projects I’ve done that were relevant to each, and found a way to include these examples in my resume. She identified key words and phrases that would strike a chord with my prospective employer based on Nicki’s years of experience in staffing, and my new resume emphasizes my abilities in a way I never imagined possible.
The transformation of my resume was startling. Before, my resume gave the impression of a young person just starting out. Now, it emphasizes my ambition and drive by showing how much I’ve accomplished in just a few years. I went from looking like a new penny to a rising star.
I would never have landed my new job without Nicki! Not only did my new resume open the door to getting an interview, the resume writing process gave me the ability (and confidence) to frame my experience and skills in terms of the role and responsibilities of the new position, which made my interviews go very smoothly. Highly recommended!”
- Brigit Kelly, Independent Consultant
“Nicki did an outstanding job on writing a resume and cover letter for me. Her insights, experience in the business world, and skills in writing were excellent. She was professional, fun, creative and easy to work with. I solidly recommend her.
Since I started sending out my new resume and cover letter (by you!), I have three interviews scheduled. Two this week and one next week.
It’s working great!! Thank you again.”
- Jim Anderson, Owner, Dusty Road Productions
“I used Nicki to beef up my resume. She gave me some great suggestions and we used them. My “new” resume looks great and really shows my skills! Thanks Nicki!”
- George M. Verrando, Registered Sales Assistant & Cashier/Office Manager
“In this day and age I appreciate the fact that Nicki takes the time to understand the needs and desires of the individual she is working with. In doing so she ensures that the final product that she provides is one that will assist that individual in the pursuit of the position they are looking for. I would highly recommend that you use her service if you truly want to stand out from the crowd!”
- Donnie Culler, VP, Delivery Group Lead Supplier
“My resume had been out on the market for over a year, and while I did get some calls, none were a great match. A friend recommended working with her to see about strengthening my resume and made an introduction.
Nicki reworked my resume; making sure I was comfortable with wording and content. A month or so later, I accepted a position which was just what I was looking for!
I find Nicki to be very knowledgeable of the industry and has her finger on the pulse of what hiring managers are looking for! She was easy to work with and I would not hesitate to work with her again if the need were to arise!”
- Sue Retzer, Release Engineer at Open Scan Technologies, Inc.
“Nicki is an excellent recruiter. She goes out of her way to get her candidates in front of potential employers. She is very positive and helpful and tries her best to find the best person for a position. I love working with Nicki.”
- Suzy Faubion, Product Specialist at Broadridge Financial Solutions
“Nicki did a great job improving my resume; she effectively rendered the skill sets of a finance and accounting professional and had taken my resume to the next level. I was very impressed with the time and effort she took in learning about my profession and then effectively delivering the results.”
“Honesty, integrity and the ability to foster relationships are the marks of a good recruiter. Nicki Massman sets the bar for all of these.
• She does what she says she is going to do, when she says she is going to do it, exactly how she says she is going to do it.
• Nicki is a true, career oriented professional. She is not using IT recruiting as a get rich quick scheme. She takes a genuine interest in people, and helps them achieve their best.
• Nicki is in tune with the constantly changing job market. She is very well connected.
Nicki has placed me in two different positions over the past 16 months. I am on the second assignment now. Both jobs have been great career opportunities!”
- Scott Alexander, Project Manager at TSYS iSolutions
“I cannot express enough how much Nicki has helped me in my recent job search. Nicki worked with me on my resume and recent job search like it was her own. I went from radio silence to waking up to phone calls requesting an interview after Nicki helped me. I have spoken to about 10 recruiters so far, none compare to Nicki.”
