We can accommodate evening and weekend appointments for the individual coaching sessions. Please call 720-452-3400 for details.

What People Are Saying:

Working with Donna for career coaching was excellent. I felt, initially, it was expensive. And essentially, it was -- but also worth every penny. Very happy with how everything turned out.

Jay Rubin

I’m an IT leader with 25 years of experience in the industry who specializes in transforming small organizations into thriving, mature IT teams. Most recently, when I found myself looking for my next opportunity, the process had changed significantly enough that I struggled to get traction. When applying for positions, I felt like my resume was dropping into an abyss. My interviewing skills had become rusty, and with no substantial feedback from those interviews I was landing, any performance improvement was just purely my speculation. I needed help. I first met with Donna over the phone, where she outlined their services, and I immediately signed on. Over the 60-Day Job Search Program, I received extensive help in my job search. Her team rewrote my resume to successfully navigate the employers’ screening computer systems so hiring managers would see my resume. We revamped my LinkedIn page to attract recruiters who were sourcing for relevant positions. We tightened up my interviewing skills and kept me accountable for all my tasks. My ratio of resume submissions to interviews went from roughly 1:40 to about 1:15. Recruiters, and this was key, started presenting positions to me instead of me tossing my resume into a job posting that already had 200 applicants. Donna and her team were with me each step of the way, offering guidance and support through what was at times a frustrating and often disheartening process, culminating in exactly the offer and opportunity that I wanted. From your guidance, expertise, humanity, and compassion through my moments of ups and downs, hiring you both [Donna Shannon and Dia Kline] as my partners through this process was the smartest damn thing I could’ve done. Thank you for everything you did.

I needed a lot of help with my job search and my resume. So, I took part in Donna's Comprehensive Coaching Package, and I was very happy I did. I got insight into job searching that I was completely unaware of, not to mention a great new resume and LinkedIn profile. Plus, the support to keep me on track and tactics to do so once our sessions were completed. I highly recommend Donna and Personal Touch.

My coaching was great. My resumes were way more polished. The team was flexible enough to accommodate me getting a job interview during the coaching process, and I got a new job during the 2020 pandemic.
