Format: Paperback
While Ron Tepper geared this book to the executive job market, the techniques and concepts are transferrable to other sectors. This one book made me change the way I presented myself, and my resume to prospective employers, and how I taught my clientele to write resumes.

Make this book one of the top three in your career planning library. Perfect for resume creation specialists, and job seekers alike.

Format: Paperback
This was THE book that made the difference in writing my own resume, as well as writing resumes for others. Tepper's power resume approach consists of identifying value-added benefits (as in the kinds of problems you can solve), not features (as in job duties and responsibilities), that show a hiring manager what you as the applicant can add to the bottom line...without saying it. It shows you how to carefully match your qualifications with the requirements of top jobs using 10 power resume ingredients that can also be incorporated into your job search. Although this book takes awhile to read, and it is geared towards those in the executive job market, the techniques learned here will stay with you forever.

This book is great, even in todays job market. My husband has lots of sales experience, but with no degree it's hard to stand out among other applicants. After editing his resume using these techniques, the phone calls started pouring in. He's now found a high paying job, and we can thank our 'power resume'. I plan on keeping this if I ever need it in the future.
