APEX Career Services coaching techniques really helped me to feel confident and qualified. I did not realize how much I had to offer until my coaching sessions with Nadine. She really helped me to gather my thoughts in a concise manner to better communicate and sell my knowledge, skills, and abilities. The techniques I learned made all the difference. I landed the promotion I had been chasing for two years.

Thanks Ms. Franz for translating my 25 year military experience into a great civilian resume. After serving my country for so many years, I wanted to use my expertise gained in the Army in a corporate job. You were truly a one-stop shop for me, and made my life easy throughout the process. You provided great coaching, and amazing resume and cover letter, and great support. I could not have gotten the opportunity to work at a Fortune 500 company without your help. Thanks so much.

Nadine is a talented and highly effective project manager. During our project collaboration, I was continually impressed with her deep and diverse knowledge of human resources. Nadine also has excellent communication skills, and the ability to bring out the best in those with whom she is interacting. Besides being great at what she does, she is also a pleasure to work with.

I wanted to move back home to be near my family but did not want to move back without a job. I found APEX Career Services in a Google search, and it changed my life. APEX helped me with my job search and helped me relocate so I could be with my family. I am forever grateful for the professional and courteous help I received.

John M.

Having been laid off for almost one year, I knew it was time to get help. A friend recommended APEX Career Services, but I was a skeptic, as I did not want to spend money to get a job. Fortunately, I decided to give it a try and was relieved to find out that my investment resulted in not only a higher position from my last position but also a higher salary with an amazing relocation package. Thanks to my coach, Nadine. She was so helpful and knowledgeable.

APEX Career Services is so professional. I received a prompt response to my inquiry and had my resume completed within one business day. I received three phone calls the day after I submitted my resume. I was called back for a second interview within the same week and just received a job offer. Thanks so much!

Project Manager, Kansas City, KS

Before APEX Career Services assisted me with my résumé and cover letter, I lacked the confidence to venture into finance after a 10-year career in social services. Apex allowed me to see how experience in any field can be an asset. I am very grateful for the support and guidance I received while working with Ms. Franz. I would definitely recommend APEX to my friends and family looking to advance their careers.

After being a stay-at-home mom for 10 years, I was scared that I would not be able to go back into the corporate world as a professional again. I was wrong. I purchased a package from APEX Career Services and received a brand new résumé and cover letter that marketed my transferable skills as well as career coaching. Not only did I land a new job, I was also able to get a salary higher than what was advertised in the job announcement. Thanks to APEX Career Services, I am back in the game with a career change, a great salary, and a new sense of who I am.

Your mock interview sessions and interview coaching was thorough and real-world. The coaching sessions were very helpful, and gave me the confidence I needed to interview well. I was getting responses to the resume you wrote, but just could not seem to get beyond the interview process. Finally, after my coaching sessions with you, I was able to land my dream job. Thanks Ms. Nadine.

Thanks for coaching me on how to negotiate salary. I was so used to accepting what was offered to me, that I never knew I could negotiate. Thanks to your coaching, tips, and advice, I was able to get a promotion with a 10% salary increase. Thanks Ms. Franz.

Hiring Nadine at APEX Career Services to write my resume, cover letter, and thank you letter was a great investment in my career search. My old resume was no competition for the new and improved resume Nadine wrote. I was blown away by how well she translated my skills and abilities on paper. As a result of my new resume, my phone rang off the hook, and I was hired within 1 month of receiving my new resume. Thanks Nadine! I will refer my friends and family to you!!

Tamara B.

Licensed Social Worker, Phoenix, AZ

It has been two years since I first worked with Nadine E. Franz and I only wish I had done it sooner. After searching for work with only a few nibbles over a nine-month period, I met Nadine and she quickly re-worked my resume and cover letter. She pointed out things I thought I had covered that I hadn’t. Within 30-days of sending out the new resume, I had two high level interviews scheduled. One led to a directors’ position. A year and a half later I was recruited to apply for a more senior level position with another agency. One of the first comments made to me after joining my new agency was how professional and clean my resume was compared to others they received. If you want to get your resume noticed, I strongly recommending working with Nadine Franz.

I would definitely refer her to anyone and everyone I come across who needs help landing his or her dream job. Thanks, Ms. Franz, for breathing life into my new career.

APEX Career Services is a must-have resource for any small business start-up. I have been proofreading and editing for years for a little extra cash. While I always desired to launch my skills into a full-fledged business, I didn’t know where to begin. APEX changed all that. The team at APEX Career Services held my hand the entire way and helped turn an idea into reality. From obtaining a tax ID, to establishing a web presence, to invoicing, to setting up payment methods, to various marketing strategies, APEX provided a wide range of expertise through each consultation. The professionalism at APEX Career Services is top-notch. I will not consider going anywhere else, as this team has demonstrated time and time again through its business consultations that it has the experience to steer Leiker Professional Services in the right direction. Working with APEX has been both motivating and empowering. If you have the opportunity to work directly with Nadine Franz, go for it! Her services are amazing, and you will NEVER be disappointed.

Leiker Professional Services


I was laid off from my 'Fortune 500' company for more than seven months after being with them for 8 1/2 years. I was left with so many questions: What do I do next? How do I do it? And how and where should I start? I had heard all the famous stories about: “Did you know that people with degrees can’t find a job” or how about this famous saying, "You better take what you can get; it’s hard out there.” I was so confused and lost and could barely even get motivated to start my job search. And right when my back was against the wall and I was ready to give up, I met Nadine Franz through a mutual friend. I met the woman who changed my perspective and outlook on the job search, Nadine E. Franz with APEX Career Services. Things started to change instantly, and together we came up with some great strategies to take my career to the next level. My process with Nadine took one month, and I’m happy to say that I have landed the position I’ve been looking for! I’m a general manager with a new up-and-coming company. I would like to add that when you are working with Nadine at APEX Career Services, you are working with the best. I believe this is the best career investment I’ve ever made!

Tania K.

General Manager, Kansas City, MO

Ms. Franz: I sent out the resume you revised for me, and I have had two telephone interviews, and both of those telephone interviews I “ACED,” and both of those phone interviews have led to in-person interviews with two companies in OKC! January 4 and 5, 2012. You told me 2012 was going to be my year, and honestly, I just thought it was something you say to all of your customers, but things are looking up. I also had two more hits today about my résumé and wanting more information! This is amazing! I wish I had contacted you sooner. Thank you so very much, Ms. Franz, for your excellent work. You told me on the telephone “Cheryl, if you let me redo your résumé, you’ll get more calls and interviews.” Again, I just thought it was something you say to all of your customers. I am AMAZED! WOW!

PS: I also had a call for me to e-mail my resume. The gentleman said he liked my faxed résumé and that he would like to distribute it to people he knows in St. Louis, Missouri. It is amazing! Thank you so very much.

Very Sincerely,
