Top Customer Reviews
Some other things I like about the book... It's concise. It provides a list of characteristics that employers look for. It has lots of examples of what to do and what not to do. For someone who's never written a resume or cover letter, it takes you from start to finish.
As importantly, it talks about what not to do: the author is some kind of recruiter, so a good portion is spent running through a list of secret things that cause them to throw out your materials. Trust me, you wouldn't think of them.
Give it a read, it worked for me!
I now know how application readers think when they assess a candidate.
The author also provides many examples of what to avoid during the job search process. He warns job seekers of habits or approaches that remove them from job consideration even before the process begins. What a great thing to know for young graduates who have yet to hire or be part of the hiring and interview process.
