Mona Ali is very helpful and did a great job with my resume. She always responded with a lot of concern and worked on my resume quickly. I highly recommend this service for any newcomers to Canada.

An excellent resource for gaining information on how to network, write cover letters and resumes for jobs for newcomers to Canada.
