Mid-Career Professionals

Passed Over for Promotions You Know You’ve Earned

Make it Easy for Decision-Makers to Interview YOU



“Want the Promotion?

Be the MEATBALL, Not the Spaghetti

Custom Résumé and Cover Letter Package™

If we work together,

I will make you a TOP CANDIDATE, and you will win interviews

How many more years until you retire?

Really – think about it.  How many?

 I’m sure you don’t want to continue being passed over for promotions you know you’ve earned, or settle for crumbs, or be paid less than you’re worth, or be ignored by recruiters for work you’ve proven you can do.

 With this Package, you’ll take control of your career, from now until you retire.


When we are done, you will:

1.  Be a confident, 100% Ideal Candidate for the next promotion you seek

2.  Have a 100% custom résumé and cover letter matching the requirements of the promotion you seek

3.  Have developed the “ACCOMPLISHMENTS MINDSET” of a meaningful TOP CANDIDATE, and no longer present yourself as just another “generic applicant”

4.   Be able to win interviews for the promotions you want – whenever you want them

5.  No longer present yourself with your generic activities, but rather as an “Ideal Candidate” who thinks in terms of accomplishments, not generic activities

6.   Stop making it so easy for decision-makers to ignore you

7.  Have ACCOMPLISHMENTS and SKILLS Data Banks filled with success stories you can customize to the requirements of each promotion or job you seek

8.   Learn a proven system to present yourself as a Top Candidate and win interviews – each time you apply — from now until you retire

9.  You’ll help yourself be paid what you’re worth, fatten your retirement account, and 

10. Most importantly, stop making it so easy for management to pass you over for                   promotions you’ve earned.

Working Together

It is important for you to know that end product of our time together will NOT be just another generic résumé for you to distribute all over the place, and continue being ignored.

Before we create your custom résumé and cover letter for the promotion you seek, we will create two DATA BANKS – one for your Representative Professional Accomplishments and another for your Special Skills and Abilities.

By the time we are done with this Package, you will have developed the mindset of a TOP CANDIDATE, upon which you can successfully build the rest of your career.

These two Data Banks – if you’ll keep them current and use them as intended – are what will make you a TOP CANDIDATE for promotions and jobs – whenever you want them – from now until you retire.

We will be using my proprietary system and I will tailor it to your unique requirements. We will use my book, How to Get Interviews! Stop Sending Job Search Junk Mail.

In between our email exchanges and Skype or FaceTime calls, you’ll be doing a good deal of thinking, reading, and writing.

I’ll be doing a lot of editing and rewriting of your work, and formatting and writing your final custom cover letter and résumé.

As soon as you complete an assignment, please email it to me. My standard to return edited material to you is within 12 hours, 24 at the most.



1. Build a Solid Accomplishments Mindset

2. Your Representative Professional Accomplishments

3. Your Special Skills and Abilities

4. Your Custom Tarxgeted Cover Letter

5. The Unique Formats of Your Cover Letter and résumé

6. Your Lifetime Career Plan

To see my different résumé formats, please click here. My two favorite formats are the ones for Greg Pease and Jennifer Haga. Both made their senders memorable and quickly won them interviews.

This is a Premium Service that will deliver Premium Results.

Because it is a premium service, it is not for everyone. It carries a premium price tag that an employed, high-5-figure professional committed to their career should be able to afford.

More on pricing if we connect.


After you have been in your new promotion for 12 months:

1. A One-to-One Live-Stream VIP Bonus Session:  A Lifetime Career Plan Day to:

      * Refresher update of the TOP CANDIDATE FOR PROMOTIONS™ system

      * Feel free to bring your spouse or someone else important to you

      * Review and update the contents of your two Data Banks

      * Strategize possible moves to make yourself a TOP CANDIDATE – for the rest of your career.                Value: $5,200

2. Responsive phone/email access to me for 2 months after the program. Value: $1,000


If you’re an employed high 5-figure, mid-career professional passed over for promotions you know you’ve earned and you’re interested in speaking with me, here’s the process:

My schedule has become such that I can no longer accept casual, exploratory calls from people who are merely curious about my TOP CANDIDATE FOR PROMOTIONS™ system.

I now use a short intake questionnaire to help us both decide if there’s a serious reason for us to talk. Please complete this short intake questionnaire and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.

Thank you.

Best Regards,

Don Burrows
