Wow! I had not updated my resume in 13 years and really needed this book. It provides great information and resume templates for an array of job seekers at various stages of their careers, as well as new entrants.

I feel a great deal of relief and confidence that my resume will be top notch and received well by potential employers.

Thank you,
Wanda

Format: Paperback
I would have given it 5 stars, but it was missing a key piece I thought should have been included - what people who have gone to college, but haven't finished and are NOT currently in school should do to address this issue. It addresses people who are in school, who have just finished school for either 1st or 2nd degrees, and who have not gone, but not those with partial education. There are numerous examples of resumes in here, and while they all have similar "after" templates, it is obvious that they were written by a variety of people. This is interesting in and of itself, because it gives more than one "way" to write your resume. All in all, it's a reference I've used multiple times and have recommended in real life!

This book is full of resume examples - pages and pages - for all kids of different jobs and levels. I was able to copy a lot of the bullet points to make my resume stronger. If you're in the market for a new job, I highly recommend this book.

This book has tons of tips on what to say in your resume. In this economy your resume and cover letter are extremely important. Today managers are receiving seven times the amount of resumes they did just three years ago and are being bombarded. This book looks at the critical components of what to say in your resume which will make you stick out of the pages of resumes sitting on the managers desk.
