I have seen these types of statements often and always thought how professional they looked when written properly, but I never thought to create one for myself. After reading this book and looking at the profiles of other people, it is something that I plan on working on soon. Marge provides some very good examples and guidelines on how to create these statements and scripts. To set up your branding, a lot of work will still have to be done, but using the book as a guide will help you do it correctly and effectively.
As the author mentions, the average amount of time a potential employer will spend looking at your resume is only a matter of seconds. Having a script and statement that stands out will help get your message out there faster. They should also increase the chances of having your resume looked at more closely. If you are thinking about applying for a new job in the near future, it may be worth the time to apply some of the information contained in this book. It should help your application and help identify your strengths.
The author provides some samples. They make work for non-technical jobs, but they did not sound appropriate in my industry (software engineering). The words are too fluffy and too generic to have a positive effect. I suspect it was written that way because the author is not a technical person herself.
I recently changed jobs so I read a fairly large number of books for job seekers and this book was one of the less helpful for me. If I had to pick one book that I found most thorough and helpful in my job search it would be "Job Hunting Ninja Master 2017" by Frank McClain.
