Testimonials

"Juliana brings true passion in to every project. She is able to understand the client’s needs and use her talent to bring the message to life. Both personally and professionally speaking, she is a pleasure to work with."-Richelle, Toronto

~~~

"After some unsuccessful attempts to get into Teacher's College Juliana helped me produce an application package that got me multiple offers of admission. Not only am I going to Teacher's College, but I get to choose between offers from different schools."-Betty, Mississauga

~~~

"Juliana’s have been the one set of eyes that have reviewed my important written works through my years in academia. She has also been pivotal in identifying new opportunities for me to pursue. She has been a real cheerleader, who shared in some of my brightest moments and most significant accomplishments."-Ylan, Toronto

~~~

“I’d like to think I speak on behalf of the majority of job seekers when I say how exasperating the entire job hunt can be, resume writing included. It may be its required narcissism, the appeal it makes to memory (which if you’re like me, can never be relied upon), or the self-defeatist notion that your accomplishments to date might not make the cut, but for whatever reason, I felt almost paralyzed by the thought of condensing the whole of me to select bullet points. As a result, my version of a resume was a patchwork of fact and fiction, things I thought employers would want to hear, and insincerely vaunted professional experiences. I chose to contact Juliana for help in designing a resume to impress. In working with Juliana, I was forced to take an introspective look at myself, which unlike my previous attempts, allowed me to celebrate my achievements and address areas for self-improvement. Juliana’s process for unearthing resume-worthy attributes was in no way intrusive, but consistently encouraging. I was more than pleased with the end product; a polished, expertly styled resume that I am happy to shop around to prospective employers. Hitting the “send” button comes with a new-found confidence!”-Deanna, Toronto

Letter of Introduction

Greetings,

It is with great pleasure that I provide my curriculum vitae for your review.

Through training, experience, and instinct I have clearly found my niche—communications. From grass-roots customer service to complex projects, I employ this transferable skill to facilitate exceptional growth and brand recognition for clients and employers. With a can-do attitude and open-door policy, I seek to inspire ownership and pride in my team. Foremost, however, I believe in applying and acquiring skills at every opportunity.

I believe in hard work and hard play, sticking to budget, meaning what you say, and being accountable to commitments. I hold those around me to a high standard and set a more demanding, less forgiving, benchmark for myself. I am a trustworthy and team-oriented leader who attracts cooperation. I proudly nurture my skills in marketing, relationship management, and strategic planning. And, in my ongoing endeavour toward progress, I will always embrace challenge and change as methods by which to evolve and nourish my business acumen.

As a testament to my experience and determination I have an extensive portfolio of work I would love to present to you.

I appreciate your consideration of my candidacy and look forward to discussing the methods by which I can be of unique and competitive service.

Sincerely,

Juliana Trichilo Cina, Hon.B.A., M.A.
