    Loaded with Practical Information

    Looking for a new job? Concerned about how to most effectively communicate how wonderful you are? This book will give you an incredible amount specific information about what to say and exactly how to say it-even suggesting the actual words you can use. The sample letters, resumes, words to use, words not to use, and much more make this book an invaluable tool for anyone looking for a new job . . . or a promotion. Part of Prentice-Hall's How to Say It series, this book is a fine example of how a tremendous amount of information can be presented in a way that's easy to find and use. The contents are so well organized, the index is almost superfluous. And then there are little added-benefit surprises, like the index to resume examples, by occupation. Seventeen chapters are presented in three sections that enable the reader to grasp the organization quickly and get to work. The table of contents provides a good view of the layout of each chapter, making it easy to slide into a reading rhythm.2 Part One, Good Beginnings-Resumes, opens appropriately with a chapter on how to write a good resume. The second chapter, keeping with the times, teaches the reader how to prepare scannable resumes. Yes, Virginia, many corporations scan resumes into computers and use Optical Character Recognition software to sort of automate resumes into a searchable database. Chapter three explains how to submit an electronic resume. Users of this book will certainly be up-to-date! The second section of the book deals with cover letters. This list of chapter headings will give you some insight into the treasures here: Writing Effective Cover Letters, Putting Your Job Search Letters to Work, Using Electronic Letters, Responding to Advertisements, Sending Unsolicited Letters, Getting a Little Help from a Friend-Networking and Referral Letters, Writing Gracious Thank You Letters, Using Follow-Up Letters to Get Results, Accepting or Declining the Job Offer, and helpfully, Writing Letters of Resignation. Are you getting the impression that this book might offer more than just some fundamental writing tips? You bet! Then check out the next section! Section Three presents the techniques and skills that go far beyond just communicating. Chapters on Preparing for the Interview, Conducting Research for the Interview, Communicating Your Qualifications, and Concluding Your Job Search Successfully complete a book that is almost tiring to read. There is a tremendous amount of knowledge in these pages. Even vocabulary lists for success! Extra bonus thought: if you're a salesperson, you could also gain considerably from this book. Looking for that sale, you're selling yourself. Use this book as a guide to improve your results.
