Karen McEwen and her team at The Career Network, Inc. are unmatched in professionalism and their attention to detail.  A few months ago, I was a recent college graduate struggling to find a job with infrequent interviews, no job offers, and unsure where or how to look for a career that would fit my personality.  The Career Network, Inc. completely improved my resume, making it professional, creative, and appealing to employers.  I felt more confident in myself and my resume and I began getting interviews, but I did not find a job that I truly liked until I got a call from Karen about a job opening.  She scheduled an interview for me with a fantastic company, and the rest is history!  I love my job; it is exactly what I asked The Career Network, Inc. to help me find.  I am so grateful to Karen and her team's optimism and hard work, and would recommend The Career Network, Inc. to anyone.

I would highly recommend Karen McEwen and The Career Network, Inc. Karen really helped me find a position that was a good fit for me, and she took my skills and experience into consideration as well as my personal needs.  I have worked with other agencies in the past, but none compare to the professionalism and courtesy that I was shown by Karen.  I am now placed in a new role that I love, and I would not hesitate to recommend The Career Network, Inc. to anyone who is either looking for a new opportunity or looking to fill a position.

Karen knows the business of permanent and temporary job placement as well as what it takes to develop a well organized resume to get noticed in the job market. I referred my son and daughter to her for resume services. They are now both gainfully employed with benefits. If you have a job to fill or have folks looking for employment, you can’t do better than working Karen and her staff! I recommend her services very highly.

Bringing on an Executive Assistant was easier done than said, with The Career Network, Inc. Our rep made it so easy. She listened to our unique needs and requirements. Very

quickly screened and presented us with several qualified candidates. The whole process took far less time and stress than running ads, swimming in resumes with exaggerated qualifications

and conducting tons of interviews. thanks to The Career Network, Inc.!

I highly recommend Karen for all staffing needs. She has been in business for many years in the Richmond area and has a thorough and insightful knowledge of the market here. As changes have occurred in methods of hiring Karen and her company have moved in sync to keep up with them. When I have referred individuals to Karen she has responded quickly to help them move in to the employment they want.

Karen is a knowledgeable professional and has an innate ability to link those seeking employment with those searching for employees. I have recommended Karen on numerous occasions, not only for her working knowledge, but also for her kind demeanor and ability to link professionals together.

Here's the short version: Karen and her company are amazing! The longer version: I have recommended Karen and her company many times to businesses looking for staff. In each of those cases, Karen has worked to find the not just an employee, but the perfect employee! In a day and age when just "ticking the box" is considered enough, it's no wonder that Karen's approach to getting it exactly right is so refreshing.

I recommended Karen to a gentleman who owns a local insurance agency and she quickly found him the RIGHT person. She was not in sales, but developed over $100,000 in new revenue ... and like I said, she was not in a sales position. His huge satisfaction with Karen caused him to recommend her to two of his competitors and Karen filled their staffing needs too.

I have used or referred The Career Network several times during the past few years and on every occasion have been overwhelmed by the results. My youngest Daughter graduated with two degrees several years ago and started flooding the market with resumes months prior to her graduation without so much as a nibble. Karen McEwen and her staff reworked her resume and she again submitted them to several potential employers. Almost immediately she started getting calls for interviews as if someone had flipped a switch. She interviewed with two companies that required a minimum of two years’ experience for the posted position (she had none) and was offered both positions. Don’t get me wrong, she sold herself once she had the opportunity but it would not have been possible without her new resume getting someone’s attention. My niece recently graduated and found herself in the same situation so I again called Karen. It took almost three weeks from new graduate to fulltime employment with benefits. This firm has the experience and knowledge to make things happen and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of this service.

I took a look at the resume and it looks amazing!  Thank you so much for your help.  I did not see anything that I would like to change.  All the information looks perfect for the type of job I'm looking for.

I highly recommend Karen to help with your job search.   After retiring from a long career, I decided I wanted to go back to work.  I struggled with applying for jobs online and could never get an interview.  When I met with Karen she told me that I needed a different look to my resume with key words that described my skills.  Karen and her team came up with a great resume.  I managed to get several interviews using that resume until Karen called and sent me for an interview with one of her clients.  I got the job!
