Dominate Today’s Job Market: Get Hired Faster, for Higher Paying and Meaningful Work You Love
Are you stuck in a job you hate? Tired of working your butt off on projects that don’t interest you in the slightest?
Or maybe you’re just gratefully employed? After months of sending resumes—and not hearing back—you’re considered lucky to get even one interview! So you take the job, even if they pay next to nothing.
For others, finding a job—ANY job—is proving to be impossible.
Maybe this is more like you… You spend hours sending resumes, networking on LinkedIn and going on interviews. But whatever you do, no one wants to hire you!
Whether you rambled during the interview or answered the questions confidently, there’s always one reason you didn’t get picked. Sometimes, they find someone more experienced than you, other times you’re not a ‘cultural fit.’
“Where are all the jobs?”
“What do they have that I don’t?”
After helping hundreds of clients land a job, I realized something…
It’s not hard to get a job… if you know what to do.
And that’s the problem… majority of job seekers have no one to guide them. Sure, there’s no shortage of career advice on the web, but who’s giving that advice? Do they practice what they preach?
To solve that, I spent a year finding and interviewing experts specializing in different aspects of the job search: resumes, interviews, networking, negotiating, and career management and more.
Now you can learn the exact tactics that you can use IMMEDIATELY—whatever stage you’re in at your career—to snag that job.

M.T., Senior Level Marketing Director
Hi Michelle, I wanted to tell you a nice story. Back in June I had applied for a position as a Director of Nursing during an open house event. I had used my old resume that I had thrown together for one of my college classes… yes the same resume I gave you to work off of! I never heard anything back from the facility. A few weeks back I saw the same Director of Nursing position posted on Career Builder, so I figured with my new fancy resume, I would attempt to apply again. Low and behold, I received a call from the HR Director asking for a phone interview. During the interview, she went on and on how she loved how creative my resume was. I made it through 2 additional rounds of interviews, and again each one commented on the quality and creativeness of the resume. I am excited to share that not only was I offered and accepted for the position, but the salary was GREATER than what I had requested! I cannot thank you enough for making me look so impressive, and most importantly sharing my passion for nursing, geriatrics in particular. I am excited to move on to this next chapter and I wanted you to know how grateful I am. Please feel free to use me as a reference! Fondly,
Marshall/Michelle- I just wanted to thank you both for putting on this presentation tonight. I found it to be very helpful. I have some work to do on cleaning up my profile! Thanks again.

Why Cover Letters Are Dead
|Since 2007, Donald Burns has repackaged over 1000 executives – including some very high-profile business leaders you’ve probably seen on TV or in the Wall Street Journal. As the “poster child for job-changers,” he understands firsthand the dreams – and worst nightmares – of people making career transitions.He won several national awards for resume and social media writing. In 2012 he won the first place Tori Award for a uniquely effective cover letter.
In 1969 – right after HS – he joined the Army. After Army service he earned BE and MS degrees in electrical engineering, joined Motorola – designed video scramblers for satellite-TV – and eventually transitioned into sales and sales management.
In 1991 he transitioned from sales management to a writing career. Burns graduated from Columbia’s Journalism School and launched his copywriting career in trade publications and marketing communications. In 2006 he added” Executive Publicity” to his marketing business, and has since morphed into a fulltime executive career coach.
“I’ve enjoyed each of my 5 careers and don’t regret a single choice,” he says. “But I do regret having wasted so much time while making each transition. I figured out everything by myself – trial and error – but my clients need not do that. They tell me where they want to go, and I find the surest shortcuts to get them there!”
