Editorial Reviews

Review

"...this book is a must have for the serious job seeker..." (The Weekly Telegraph, 19 August 2002)

From the Back Cover

* Information on 40 different countries, including the United States
* Includes job sources, Internet sites, work permit/visa requirements, interviewing, and cultural advice

"Until The Global Resume and CV Guide, there has not been any information regarding country-specific job application guidelines for candidates who want to take the international job search into their own hands . . . The Global Guide is an outstanding resource."

-Daniel Mensch, Associate Partner, Andersen Consulting, Sweden

MASTER THE RULES OF THE GLOBAL JOB MARKET COUNTRY BY COUNTRY

Did you know that in Japan, the job application or rirekisho is a handwritten two-page form that is purchased from the local stationery store? That in the US, attaching a photo to your resume/cv is a faux pas that tells the employer you do not know the rules? That in Sweden, your resume/cv should be signed by someone who can attest that what you wrote is true? That in Korea, it is important to state on your resume/cv if you are the eldest child in the family?

Format: Paperback
Imagine a single reference that describes in detail how to craft the perfect resume for employers around the world. This guide would explain the expectations of far-flung employers relative to the standard practices of your home country, indicating how to map your existing resume to the each target country's culture. This is not that book. Not that "The Global Resume and CV Guide" doesn't try -- and occasionally succeed, at least where certain countries are concerned. Ultimately, what is touted as one of the book's greatest strengths proves to be a disappointing weakness: each country section is written by a "local expert", meaning that the guide effectively has many authors. The first downside of this approach is that the information on any given country is not typically framed in terms that make sense to the reader, because the author is not necessarily familiar with the resume practices of the reader's country. A second downside of this approach is that there is significant variation in the quality and level of detail between country sections. For example, the section on the United States spans 18 pages, including two sample resumes. The section on the United Kingdom, in contrast, includes a mere 5 pages and no sample resumes. The UK section also leaves unanswered basic questions like whether "CV" or "resume" is the preferred term. Ultimately, though, the biggest disappointment is the lack of detail, understandable in a guide that attempts to cover nearly 40 countries in less than 300 pages. If you're looking for a high-level overview of the requirements of many different countries, you'll likely find this guide useful. But if you're looking for details and lots of sample resumes, you're probably better off purchasing a guide specific to your country of interest.

Format: Paperback
The book divides its attention to (1) basics of CV/Resume writing; (2) country-specific format and style of Resume, contributed by actual human resource specialist for each of the country listed; (3) interview guidelines for different regions of the globe. I found the format of the book itself helpful; its contents even more so. The guidelines are clear and concise, and works well for both young professionals and students alike. As a junior university student looking for an international job, the subtle nuances of the differences between writing a CV for, say, Europe and Japan, as written in this book allows me to do my "homework" before sending them, which hopefully may increase one's chances of landing a job interview. As the author has pointed out, international employers seek out employees who are willing to learn how other people do things, and one of the things that show that is how a CV/Resume has been styled for the destination intended.

I'm a professional resume writer who works globally. I found this book to be filled with outdated and simplistic templates rather than intelligent ideas.

Format: Paperback
This book is well written, and so comprehensive that anyone considering a business career overseas should seriously consider it. The fact that all of the chapters are written by professional recruiters from their own country is a double plus - they know what they're talking about, and they give good, clear advice on the cultural differences that are really so important, in both the application and in the interview. I find it particularly helpful in the area of job information sources within the specific country; it lists newspapers, directories, employment agencies, and regional newspapers, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, etc., etc.! I have already recommended it to a number of friends.

I'm looking for a job overseas right now, and Thompson's book has already been a tremendous help! It is so complete - with addresses, phone an fax numbers, Internet sites -- all kinds of information, and all up-to-date. I graduated in June and I just wish I had this book earlier.
