About the Author

During my business career, from start-ups to a global Fortune 500 company, I've read thousands of cover letters and resumes/CV's, conducted hundreds of interviews and hired more than one hundred people. Importantly, this recruitment was done as the hiring manager, not as a recruitment agent. In other words, these people worked with me in the business – that's having real skin in the recruitment process! Over time it dawned on me that few people crafted their job application documents to what I wanted to see. It's like they got their old resume/CV and updated it with their latest job and that was it. Not surprising really, we've all done it before and it accounts for why sifting through job applications can be a pain because most people are not providing the right information. I have no doubt that some excellent candidates never made it to interview because their cover letters and resumes/CV's weren't crafted properly.It became clear that most people could do a much better job of their job application documents. Here's how:Give the recruiter what they want!That's exactly how this book started – all based on that one sentence. Have a look at the Blueprint and the contents, it all comes back to that concept. If I could articulate it and make it easy for people to understand, then a book could be a great resource to really help people progress their careers. You'll find everything you need in this book to help you create resumes/CV's and cover letters that are not only tailored to job advertisement requirements, but also gives the recruiter exactly what they want. Use this book to maximise your chances of landing the interview!
