Individual Successes & Résumés
“A while ago, I learned Don’s DIY résume-writing system to win interviews as a TOP CANDIDATE each time you apply. The résumé you see here won me an interview with XMX. The process lasted over four months and included these steps: 1) phone screen with HR; 2) interview with staff member; 3) phone screen with new director; 4) flown in for back-to-back in-person interviews in San Jose with future teammate, Director, and another teammate. All that was prelude to the final step, the key to getting hired or not, an INTERNATIONAL WEBCAM PANEL INTERVIEW AND PRESENTATION with a teammate, web instructor and a systems engineer. ~~~ I assembled my presentation and asked Don for some practice sessions. Due to life and nature (power outages, plumbing issues), one session with Don was the ONLY “live” practice I got, and I completely rocked the presentation. ~~~ Don immediately had constructive feedback that I quickly took notes on and then practiced. He gave me very helpful feedback on the presentation itself, and I made revisions. The comfort level that I felt going into this panel interview – thanks to Don’s coaching – well, I was perfectly at-ease. I took my time speaking. I paused at key points so they could absorb what I had just said. I encouraged questions and provided focused answers. ~~~ It could not have gone better, and that is thanks to Don’s coaching – – – Which I have found invaluable and which has earned me a great job twice now. Work with Don. I’m telling you. Don’t hesitate. Work with Don.”
