Chapter 2, Your DotCom Cover Note, with its 50 opening statements and 50 closing statements to use online, is amazingly useful. I didn't know there was so much to know about cover letters. I perused a library copy of the first edition, then bought the second edition to keep on my desk during my last successful job search. A few more letters for specific industries would be good.

This book was just what I needed as someone who hadn't had to look for a job in a long time. It brought me up to date on how the resume has changed since the hard-copy days. I'm following its recommended practice of preparing an all-encompassing compilation for reference, then extracting a targeted resume for each job application. Highly recommended.

While the textual information is good in this book, the sample resumes are rendered in such minute and blurry form as to be unreadable. Would be better suited for a Nook Enhanced title or presentation as a Nook magazine format. In this case I would definitely say "Better get this one in pulp." That said, another solid Dummies book. Great information, well presented.

This book was the best book on resumes that I found. I use it as my main reference when I update my resume . The section on 'Spin Control' was particularly useful.

As an author of a book about employment search myself, I found this to be both relevant and current. it is a tool that will facilitate the process of job seeking.
