“If you want to get back to work, your resume has to STAND OUT from your competition. You can’t do that if you use the same generic, one-size-fits-all resume when applying for SPECIFIC positions. In Résumés That Resume Careers, you’ll learn how easy it is to customize your resume according to the requirements of each job you apply for, and present yourself as the unique solution to that company’s needs. Read and apply this book to your job search and you will soar!”

“Don is a true professional career coach. He knows how to get the candidate thinking like a winner. By using his methodology, it prepares a job seeker to answer tough interview questions and present themselves in the best light, all by focusing on accomplishments. I have found his advice invaluable as I navigated my personal career journey. He is able to breathe confidence into the resume and into the candidate. Following his advice, I re-focused my resume, and myself, on accomplishments, saying “why”, and “so what” to provide eloquent, complete talking points for phone and face-to-face interviews, showing my true value to any employer.”

“I hired Don Burrows to help me re-write my resume several years ago. His approach and methodology of extrapolating what my specific skills are into a concise and effective description enabled me to identify tangible expertise and examples for each skill. In doing so the content for my resume “stood out from the “pile””. His company continuously goes above and beyond by also providing additional advice when we need our resumes revised. The suggestions made are always on target and distinctive to the positions one applies for. I would highly recommend his firm if you are seeking a unique resume which exemplifies you to the best of your capabilities.”

“As a Human resources professional, I have seen many, many resumes. There are about four or five common formats that, in time, become variations on a main theme: here’s where I worked; when I worked; what I was responsible for.
You would think I would have developed a sense of what would be the “perfect resume”.
Instead, like the hand that does a lot of manual labor, I developed a callous, albeit a mental one. I became increasingly unable to get a “feel” for the candidates and likely missed some good ones.
Fortunately, when I was looking for work, I had an opportunity to use Don Burrows’ approach to writing a Functional Resume. The effect was twofold. I got more interviews than I had with a traditionally formatted résumé – and yes, I got the job I wanted.
But even more important to me professionally, I got to be a better HR professional … I learned what it takes to make résumés do what a résumé should do … get you in front of the person who will make the hiring decision.
Don’s intelligent, insightful approach will help your résumé stand out and get you that interview.”

“Don participated in a multi-state downsizing event that impacted employees who had been with our company for 20+ years. An effort was made to assist these employees in preparing to land new jobs and that is where Don’s talents came into play. Without much more than a few marching orders and a map of the east coast Don set off to meet affected individuals and help them prepare a resume, practice interviewing techniques, and develop a job search strategy. His assistance was instrumental in a successful downsizing that resulted in no adverse action against the company. And, he truly made a measurable difference for each of the individuals to which he devoted his time and talent.”

Don, I really have to thank you for getting me in touch with Lowe’s and their garden department. I’ve never worked in the retail world before and was concerned if I could handle it but it was really enjoyable. I even got a customer accommodation the first week I was there – WOW!
Thank you for opening up a whole new world for me.

Wow! The information in this book is PRICELESS. I took your advice and within a day I was getting interest from employers. Don is the real deal and if you don’t get this book you will be unemployed for a long time.
