Before picking up Dr. Scholl's book I had sent out numerous cover letters for jobs and had minimal success. After reading through Dr. Scholl's instructions, I learned to show how I could provide value to a company. Too many individuals make the mistake of talking about themselves in a cover letter. The tips and tricks in this book for a successful cover letter and resume are beyond valuable. I received my first job offer thanks to Dr. Scholl. This book is a must have no matter what stage you are in of your career cycle. Do not apply for your next position without reading this book first. Dr. Scholl is an expert at professional writing and through reading his book you will see your own skills dramatically improve

There have been a kazillion resume and cover letter books around for years but this Nook title brings something the others don't have--Scholl's energy and optimism and decades of success in awakening the creative side of people in a way that immediately gets the prospective employer's attention.   Not all people are creative!  But Scholl is an expert at drawing special sparks out of everyone--from math to theatrical majors--so they get the best shot at a job.  And sometimes people even CREATE a new job for themselves.
