Do you love us? 

The greatest testimony our clients can give is to refer their friends to us! In appreciation, we offer a referral fee for our writing and coaching services.

Referrals are broken into two categories: Standard and Premium.

Standard Referrals

Eligible programs:

  • All resume & LinkedIn packages
  • Hourly coaching
  • Interview coaching

Standard referral fees are worth $25.

 For every person you refer who purchases a resume package, interview coaching, or hourly coaching, we will pay you $25. If you prefer, you can pass along your referral as a discount on the package to your friend.

Premium Referrals

Eligible services:

  • Down & Dirty Job Search Group program
  • Down & Dirty Job Search Private program

 For every person you refer who purchases a Down & Diry Job Search program, we will pay you $100. If you prefer, you can pass along your referral as a discount on the package to your friend.

How it works

We have two options for participating in our referral program.

1. Introduce us through email or LinkedIn Messaging.

The most direct way to refer us is through a group email or LinkedIn Message between you, your friend, and Donna Shannon or Dia Kline. We will follow up with them to set up our initial 30-minute complimentary consultation.


 2. Tell them to say your name.

If you don’t want to share the message, your friend can schedule their consultation through our website:

Be sure to tell them to mention your name  – and yes, we must have your name and contact information to send you the referral fee.


The Fine Print

The referral program is available to all past clients, contacts, fans, friends, team members, and affiliates of the Personal Touch Career Services.

Ineligible products and services:

  • Editing
  • Additional resumes
  • Cover letters
  • Biographies
  • Books
  • Online classes

While online classes, books, and memberships are not eligible for the referral program, we do offer a 7% affiliate fee for these products and services. Please contact Donna Shannon for further details.

Referral fees will be paid by the end of the month through PayPal or Venmo. PayPal and Venmo may assign a 3% processing fee which is beyond our control. Referrals are based on the initial purchase and not on subsequent or multiple purchases from the same referred client.

 The referral program will be effective on January 2, 2024, and is subject to cancellation or modification without advance notice. Referral fees are not retroactive to previous referrals.

"I strongly recommend working with [PTCS]. They are outstanding when it comes to maintaining close communication with you and the quality of their work is top shelf! I found their knowledge and expertise to be above and beyond any expectation I could have ever imagined.

Donna is not only knowledgable in her field, but she is funny, personable, and
really cares about the success of others. If you're looking for someone that fits that bill when needing coaching and guidance on your career, she is your last stop!

Donna coached me in interviewing skills and even held a mock interview to practice for specific jobs. She was responsive all along the way to any email or phone questions I had about upcoming interviews and within 3 weeks of hiring them on to help me, I was gainfully employed.

Our Guarantee

Should you not receive an interview within 90 days of completing your project, you will receive your choice of an additional edit or a 30-minute coaching session with a senior coach at PTCS. (See Client Agreement for complete details.)

[They] took the time to get to know my past career experience, but also took the time to get to know me as a person. They are a pleasure to work with and will work with them again in the future. If you are looking to have a resume that will get noticed, Personal Touch Career Services is the one to hire.
