While I’m not looking for a job at the moment, it never hurts to have an up to date resume on hand. Especially at my job – sometimes we are asked to hand it off to the boss to see about us moving to a different position within one of our customers groups. I’m always a bit nervous that my resume is not the best it can be or what the person looking at it is going to be looking for. What do I put on it? What do I keep off? Also included in the book are some tips on cover letters which is also a pretty difficult concept for me to grasp – and I guess I am not alone since there are books written on how to do it.
The book is under 100 pages – your resume should be short and to the point and so is this book! It has a lot of great examples of what doesn’t work on resumes and how to re-word it so that it will work. There’s a lot of great tips and I am going to be working on my resume a bit to get it up to par after reading this book.
This is also the first book in a “No Mistakes” Career Series – the next one will be about the interview process – that you’ll no doubt get after making a kick ass resume!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.

What makes me qualified to write this book? I have been a headhunter for more than 30 years, and I have evaluated, screened, and edited a gazillion resumes. I know a gazillion sounds like a lot, and maybe it wasn’t quite a gazillion, but it was a lot of resumes. (more than a few dozen for sure)
