    CareerJournal.com Resume Guide for $100,000 Plus Executive Jobs

    As a somewhat cynical New Yorker jaded by the mediocrity of most career and job search books, I was pleasantly surprised at the excellence of William Montag's CareerJournal.com Resume Guide for $100,000+ Executive Jobs. The book, done in partnership with CareerJournal.com from The Wall Street Journal, is based on Mr. Montag's firsthand experience as a professional writer and outplacement counselor to the 50 real-life clients featured in the book. I particularly like the fact that each of the sample resume/letter packages featured throughout the book represents a real-life client that Mr. Montag has served and helped over the past decades. Unlike the majority of career books that include sample resumes and letters written by people other than the author, each and every letter/resume package in this book was originally researched and prepared by Mr. Montag himself. The bottom line is that I followed the book because every recommended step in this text was personally market-tested and proven by the author himself. He backs up every word with firsthand case history experience. The power packaging in Part I of the book is followed by quality chapters featuring the author's reality-based Expansionist Theory--an on target formula for executing an aggressive job search--and the 24/7 Online Job Search Directory featuring the best of the best career and job search Web sites on the Internet. The author also delineates a step-by-step process for registering with CareerJournal.com, the Wall Street Journal's official career Web site. The book was deservedly named "Editor's Choice for September 2002" by the Editor in Chief and General Manager of CareerJournal.com. Add this book to your library today.

    CareerJournal.com Resume Guide for $100,000 Plus Executive Jobs

    Let me say first that I heartily enjoyed reading this book--not only was it intelligently and professionally written, it also helped me to step back and take a fresh look at my own marketability, skills, and accomplishments. The book is a steal for under $20. Everything that you need to know to create first-class resume, launch a first-class job search, capitalize on the Internet, and start receiving job offers is detailed in this book. The fact that contents of this book is based on Mr. Montag's experience with the dozens of real-life clients featured in the text gives this entry solid credibility. The marketing packages developed in Part I and the Expansionist Theory and 24/7 Online Job Search Directory in Part II make this book a winning formula for success. Bill Montag has done a great job. Do not hesitate to buy this book.

    Bill Montag has written a well concieved and executed career/resume/job search book that even the WALL STREET JOURNAL wanted in on. (And its 24/7 online job search directory is incredible!) Don't miss out. Do yourself a favor and write the resume to get the high paying job you deserve.
