5.0 out of 5 stars I created a winning resume from this book March 17, 2013

This book is powerful in its recommendations for resume-writing. I created a resume from the advice and examples in the book and was told by a number of prospective employers how impressive it was. This book is worth reading and you will learn from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT Another Boring "How To" Book January 23, 2013
By Marek
This was a surprisingly captivating read about how to write a résumé. I felt like the author was personally addressing his readers and writing to a very broad audience; the advice is good for anyone of any age and experience or education level.

While this book will not hold your hand and tell you exactly what to say on a résumé it will ask you to prioritize what information you put down and why. By asking you to look at your résumé as the employer this book will help you keep it short and concise and stick to the one page rule. I will say take some of his formatting suggestions with a grain of salt, it's not a good idea to use multiple fonts, but otherwise the advice for content is solid and thoughtful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, Enlightening and Informative October 21, 2012
By magnus
I've always hated preparing a resume and, frankly, have never really put my heart and soul into the process. The time I've just spent reading through The Resume That Gets You Hired has changed all that -- and it wasn't nearly as painful a process as I thought it would be. This manual sheds light on the subject in an enjoyable and conversational coaching style that has me ready to create the resume that will really show me "broken down on a page".

Mr. Coppock explains the purpose and goal of a resume, its component parts and how to put them all together. He gives you everything you'll need -- from design and format guidelines to techniques designed to help the job seeker get her resume noticed and acted upon. All those obscure little details like font sizes, bullets and design can really make a difference in getting your resume put at the top of an employer's to-do list. As I read each chapter, I'd think of how my current resume looks and how I can use each of his ideas to make it better, especially his advice on trimming down unnecessary details to let the important facts speak for me.

As someone who's submitted many resumes and also browsed through piles of them as a manager, I'm really impressed with this manual and feel it's a worthwhile tool for anyone who's looking to find the job of their dreams -- at any stage in their work careers.

Exactly what was needed! As someone heading back into the work force unexpectedly and frankly, a little nervously, this great little book has done much to alleviate the fears of jumping back into working and showed me step-by-step exactly how to create a résumé that exhibits my strengths well and showcase my strength as a potential employee. Just as I was afraid of, the whole world of Résumé s is much more complicated than when I was young and this contained all of the information I needed to quickly learn what is needed for a more modern résumé. Because so many people are looking for work these days, I knew my résumé needed to be as professional as possible and this gave me the steps to create an excellent résumé that will land me the job that I need and want. Funny thing is, it is also excellent advice for my grandson soon graduating and hitting the workforce himself so it can help you create or revise your résumé whether you are new to the workforce or returning to work unexpectedly in your later years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Valuable Resume Tips That Got Me Hired! May 12, 2012
Verified Purchase
Writing a resume is an important skill that you learn towards the end of high school or the start of college. One thing that you don't learn in school is exactly how important a good resume is to landing a god job or internship. Even if you think you know how to write a resume, this book is a good resource to help give your CV that extra boost it needs to push your application to the top.

This book helps you to understand what the point of a resume is and the best way to put it together. There are specific sections on thing that you should NEVER put in your resume as well as tips to adding sections that will help you stand out in the eyes of the hiring manager.

Unlike a lot of guides that simply tell you what to do or what not to do, this guide has templates that shows you the best layout for maximum effect as well as font and paper suggestions. If you thought these things weren't important like I did, try some of these suggestions and you will find out that the little things do matter.

The book is priced affordably, which makes is a great deal overall.

I got this book to see if it had any information in it that I could pass along to my nephews who are struggling to find a decent job in today's economy. They both have had an excellent eduction and even experience in their chosen fields, but they keep getting looked over for job openings in our area that they are actually highly qualified for. But I think this book on resumes is going to help them gain an added advantage simply from how they present themselves in their resumes. I'm also going to have my niece read it - she recently graduated from high school and can actually use the tips provided to start building her resume during college years. Great information!
