What Our Clients Say About Youth Express
I was very happy with the service, especially the resume writing as it has changed since we last had to write a resume. This assistance took an enormous stress off our family. Liam is now in his second year of a Fitter/Machinist apprenticeship and Keely is pursuing training in Make-up Artistry.
