Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Fearless Resumes is very useful as a resource to write a basic resume. Marky Stein presents clear instructions to focus energy on capturing the attention of employers - "rivet the reader" - and to keep distractions out of the resume. The samples were well-written and representative of several industries and career levels. Even though I eventually worked with a career consultant to fine-tune my own resume, I am glad that I borrowed this book and then purchased it to keep it in my own library for years to come.
