Don Burrows: Résumé Strategist, Webinar Leader and Co-Author of Burn Your Résumé. You Need a Professional Profile™ - (Winning the Inner and Outer Game of Finding Work or New Business)
“Got no work? Think nobody’s hiring?
Burn your résumé. You need a Professional Profile™”
Don’s three-decades-long passion has been developing and using his own special brand of functional résumés to get people interviews. In Spanish as well as English.
During his domestic and international Human Resources career, recruiting, interviewing and selection were primary responsibilities for Don in Chiquita Brands, Cigna Worldwide, Chicago Pneumatic Tool Company and Marriott Hotels.
Using his system, his clients do not engage in mass postings or mailings. Rather, because they tailor their cover letters and résumés (he calls them Professional Profiles™) to the requirements of each position for which they apply, they present themselves as “Ideal Candidates,” not as generic applicants.
Don’s message to jobseekers looking for work or solopreneurs looking for new business:
EVERYONE needs a current Professional Profile™. Everyone.
Why? Because you never know when your job will evaporate or you’ll need to put together a quick proposal that will help YOU stand out from your competition.
Crafting a thorough Professional Profile™ requires the completion of a comprehensive personal inventory of your most significant business accomplishments, and the skills used to achieve them. When you are ready to apply for a specific position, you will select only the most relevant skills and accomplishments and present yourself as an “ideal candidate.” No more generic résumés.
If you are seeking a generic, fill-in-the-blanks template, you will not find it here.
The Professional Profile™ system is both challenging and rewarding. Like anything that is worthwhile, it will require thought, time and effort. And like others before you, your astonishment as the new “you” will be your reward.
Those who have taken the time have reaped the benefit of getting interviews months faster than their counterparts who did not.
Be honest and ask yourself: How effectively, easily and compellingly can you speak about your accomplishments – the problems you have faced and fixed – for clients or prior employers?
“I’ve made hundreds of people’s telephones ring with a recruiter on the other end of the line. May I do the same for you?” – Don Burrows
