Meet Business Development / Entrepreneur BRENT WARD.
“Convention is to put as much as possible in a resume and follow the boilerplate herd. Courageous approaches focus on simplifying a resume to only those items that are important. Don’s wisdom is to consider the things that may not yet even be on the page! And that has made all the difference. —- Brent Ward. Business Development. Raleigh, NC
Meet Senior Sales Manager of a capital city’s largest newspaper JENNIFER HAGA.
Don Burrows has put a spin on the traditional resume which, unlike so many others out there, actually works! I’ve been with my current employer since 2007 and recall during my interview my “new” boss telling me that my resume format which included Don’s addendum provided great insight into what I could bring to her team. I’m happy I invested my time, in me! - Jennifer B. Haga. Manager, Business Development. Raleigh, NC
“My final interview was with the CEO of the company. He said that I was at the top of his list to have interviewed for one reason: “I had to meet the engineer who thinks like this. This resume (really, my Professional Profile) demonstrates that you are not a typical engineer, but an engineer who will be disruptive. I need that in my company.” … He chose to speak with me because of my profile! A week later I received a letter with an offer –for an opportunity to work with a company that fit me!” – Greg Pease, Director of Engineer. Maryland, DC
“This process makes you This process makes you stand out. Put in the effort and/or the money and your value will rise. If you think you’re worth it, do it” - Chris Burrows, Senior IT . Denver, CO
“I tried for three months on my own after graduation to have meaningful contact with companies that might be interested in a recent college graduate with a physics / mathematics degree. I was getting nowhere fast. Don helped me put together a Professional Profile. I have submitted it to several companies and while they have not had entry level positions available, they were interested enough after reading it to meet with me. To date I have had four interviews. I know that the time and effort will pay off soon.” - Kyle Margolies. Recent College Graduate. Issaquah,. WA
