I have applied to dozens of jobs in the past few months using a resume I though was great. I am very well qualified but did not recieve ANY calls.

I bought this book on Monday, today is Thursday, followed it step-by-step and sent out 6 resumes. Now I have 4 interviews next week.

I have read several books and spent countless hours on all the career advice sites and this book beats them all.

If you are looking for a new career, BUY THIS BOOK, you will not be sorry.

The title seems a little cheesy but this really is a great book to help write a resume...

It tells you how to effectively use keywords in your resume for the age of Internet and electronic scanners that we live in today. Plus, it gives a huge list of "action verbs" to use, teaches you how to write a "resume headliner" to grab readers' attention and how to use numbers and statistics effectively (even if you're not in sales, business or accounting fields).

I could go on and on, this book is packed with tons of GOOD examples (broken down by job type and levels of experience) and other useful inforamtion that most other resume books don't cover.

This book is fabulous! Over the course of one day, I've taken my resume from super dull and boring to incredible! I had no idea how bad my resume was until I read this book. The book gives tons of advice on how to format your resume and up-to-date information on what to add to your resume, like 'keywords.' If you think your resume needs a facelift, get this book! I looked through many books at the bookstore before I selected this one and I'm confident I made the right choice!

Format: Paperback
I must say that this was a very well-purposed book! Replete with information and largely given in an easy-to-digest fashion, and not too long. I've been helping people with their resumes for my entire career - now retired - and suggestions such as removal of articles, margin use, focus, and so on were right on target. The book I read is from 2004, however, and shows it's age, especially when referring to job boards and the like. A more recent edition release might address this issue - this is the reason it didn't get 4 stars AGE -
I'm not a huge fan of stuffing page after page of examples into such a book and I found that not every one was entirely consistent with the way they're taught in the book.
Finally, I did very much like the idea that many minds went into this book.
They also do a bit of self-promotion on the cover, which isn't a bad idea.
4 stars, minus 1 for its age. Sound book on resumes, and I'll keep it in my resume book library.

Bought this because I've been off the market for a while and knew I could upgrade my resume with the right tools. The suggestions improved my resume quite a bit. It's easy to read straight through or pick and choose what you need. Several sample resumes were helpful, but I was surprised there were no healthcare examples.
