its simple, the objective is to get invited to the interview Oct. 9 2006
By Humberto Mejia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great book that can help you be positioned at the top of the file for the interview.

Whatever your skills or expertice, if it does not draw attention you run the risk of being ignored. yet, how many of us are into copy techniques? I have been in sales all my life, and to sell myself in a resume manner was a tough assignment. Im glad this book gives you the insights and the tips to tailor your abilities to what you are truly looking for, this is what is good about it, honest work with yourself to convey the right marketing.

results? even phone interviews from Australia.

Look more clearly at your own strengths and skills Sept. 15 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
By using the suggestions for organizing and presenting information in this book, I have a whole new appreciation for the things I've managed to accomplish over the years. Nearing retirement age, with five successful careers behind me and another just starting up, I still found little niches of self-defeating behavior, ways in which I was emphasizing the wrong thing or ignoring key accomplishments.

More than just a guide to resumes, this book helped me see that the new career change will bring my work life a lot closer to my core values; and it showed me clearly how to be successful from the very start.

The only resource you'll need - this book covers EVERYTHING March 16 2009
By A.P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A month ago my department of 33 people was notified that our work would be decentralized throughout our company. Regardless of if we were interviewing internally or externally, we all needed to update our resumes.

After volunteering to review my colleagues' resumes I searched the internet for some pointers and found Resume Magic. I purchased Resume Magic that same afternoon and it has been open on my desk ever since.

Resume Magic includes *everything* I needed help with - and things I hadn't thought of! Examples of different formatting options, lists of action verbs, impact mining exercises, how to address issues with education, and especially the before/after examples have been tremendously helpful. I was able to take a boring page of bulleted lists of previous job responsibilities and turn it into an enticing profile that told the story of employment, highlighting unique nuances of skills that offered an employer a colorful, complete picture of the employees' qualifications.

Resume Magic provides a comprehensive, practical guide to resume writing. Having solid, good looking, effective resumes has done wonders for the confidence (and future employment!) of my team.

Helpful but packed with too much fluff Sept. 1 2009
By M. Parker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book helpful. Its full of great resume writing tips, but you have to read through alot of fluff to find them. While I appreciate the author wanting to explain the psychology behind her techniques, she spends a great deal of time discussing product ads (unrelated to resumes) and gives alot of "see how this helped Tom, Dick and Jane" stories that really don't provide any added benefit to the reader, in my opinion. I would prefer the author impart her knowledge in a direct, no non-sense manner. I do like that this book provides alot of before and after resume transformations, and encourages you to develop your own authentic resume, rather than ripping one off from the book. However the book could be reduced to one-third of its size without loosing any of its vital information.

This is a MUST have! May 16 2008
By NaNaYa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The is quite simply the best book on resume writing I've ever read. I've worked in HR for over 20 years, and I've never seen anything like this. Well worth the money. So far, I've used this book to write four resumes for family and friends, all of which have resulted in jobs.

If I could have given this book 7 stars, I would have.
