This is a very informative guide to developing a better resume. A few years ago I had a resume professionally prepared at no small expense. It was very well prepared but was dated and I wanted to update it. Rather than pay someone to do the work, I elected to do it myself. I bought this book and followed many of the suggestions the author recommended. The completed resume was shorter in length but offered more pertinent information on my abilities than my old professionally prepared resume. When I sent it to my executive search firm for review and use, they responded with the comment that it was one of the best executive resume's they have ever recieved.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is considering drafting or revising their resume. I honestly wish I had come across something this easy to read when I came out of college a few years ago as it likely would have made my job search easier. Reading this book on my Kindle app has given me a number of ideas to incorporate into my resume and I can already see a dramatic improvement. I never really thought that much about highlighting my accomplishments due to fear of coming across as boasting but Ms. Safani wrote logical responses to ease the concerns I had. I definitely feel more confident about sending my resume out to companies and recruiters should the need arise.

Format: Paperback
Direct, action oriented, easy to read and not a book full of buzz words that don't really mean anything - This book focused on the concrete not the cliche. Even if you THINK you know it all you might need a reminder.

Great book, easy to read - Perfect to have on the shelf as a reference

Quick, easy useful: packed with fresh tips and clear suggestions, this book is a must read for everybody working on his or her resume'.
From work experience to education to personal information, this book helps you decide what to include and what to omit. More to the point, it guides you towards identifying your most relevant skills and job experiences, and shows you how to emphasize them.
Whether you are looking for a new job or you are changing careers, this book will help you articulate clearly and succinctly on paper what sets you apart from other candidates.
The guidelines on formatting and use of illustrations are very useful, while even a quick look at the dozens of sample resumes and cover letters can give you new ideas for your job search.
Even in an era of online job posts and career networking, the resume' is not dead - as long as you have one that stands out.

This is an excellent guide that you will not find in the library. The author is really in touch with today's professional world and it is not a boilerplate guide. About 2/3 of the book is sample resumes and letters, most of them for executive type jobs. I would suggest most job hunters would prefer the newer book 'Happy About my Job Search' that includes most of the resume instructional chapters of this book.
