    Awsome Reference Tool

    Must have reference to write/(re-write) your resume! My 'before' resume was awful, but I had no idea how to fix it. I wanted to hire someone to re-write it, but could not afford it. I checked out a dozen resume books from the library and narrowed it down to 2. The Resume Handbook and one other. I thought the book with the suggested sentences, worksheets, etc. would be the most helpful, but again it wasn't. Tips used in The Resume Handbook and the List of action verbs were incredible and proved invaluable in getting my resume rewritten. I love my new resume and have had unbelievable success with it! This is a must have if you want to re-write your resume.

    A great way to start your job search

    An excellent resource with all the tools you will need to get started on your job search. It is a must read primer those without a resume, first-time job seekers, or those who have been out of the market for a while.

    What a difference

    I rewrote my resume after reading this book, and it's hardly the same resume. The chapters in the book are concise and to the point, and there are lots of sample resumes to learn from. I realized before I even set to work rewriting my resume that I had seriously understated my achievements, and by adding what the authors call 'accomplishment statements,' I developed a resume that I feel proud of and want potential employers to read.
