Don helped me reinvent myself! Working with Don Burrows is one best things I've ever done for my life and business. He has the ability to help you cut through all of the mind clutter to help you create something not only others will want to read and work with you, but you will too!Jul 26, 2013
Don is truly an out of the box visionary. The way he approaches people and their potential is unparalleled in the industry. Whether he is working with enterprises, teams, or individuals, he takes notice of the natural talents and goodness in people while respecting the pragmatic realities of executing with excellence. Don is a rare gift whose talents have to be experienced to be believed. He is aces in my book! BrentJul 25, 2013Don B.'s reply
Thank you, Brent. To potential clients reading Brent's review, when he retained my services, he had identified one company where he wanted to work, and had identified a new market they did not know they had. We collaborated on a Professional Profile that displayed his unique skills, and when the dust settled, he had created a position for himself.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It depends on how much help the client needs and how much they are willing to do for themselves.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I prefer an intake conversation over Skype, the phone, or a cup of coffee. Working with me is not just a one-sided affair where they give me information and I write it up. Rather, for us to be successful, it is a joint effort. It's important that potential clients know they will have a good deal of work to do first, before I can edit / polish their work so they can become IDEAL CLIENTS. I invest a lot of time, energy and commitment in my clients and don't want them to "Quit on Themselves" when they get into the program and see that there is actual work involved.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?18 years of in-house recruiting and hiring responsibility in MARRIOTT HOTELS, CHICAGO PNEUMATIC TOOL COMPANY, CIGNA WORLDWIDE, DOLE and CHIQUITA 35+ years as a Résumé Strategist and Résumé Workshop Leader Fluent Spanish
