Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When published thirteen years ago, The  Perfect Resume was the best resume book  on the market. It transformed the old resume  "list of facts" into a new model, an  opportunity for self-expression and self-promotion. But  today's perfect resume is not the same perfect resume  of ten--or even five years ago. The New  Perfect Resume provides the most  effective strategies for dealing with the current shift  away from 'good steady jobs' to an era of temporary,  freelance, and consulting  positions.

In order to compete in today's business world,  where employers are more interested in a candidate's  skills rather than experience, and where no  employment is guaranteed for life, resumes must be  highly customized and targeted to an employer with  current or short-term needs. The New  Perfect Resume shows readers how  to:

* Prepare a capabilities portfolio, which  focuses on a candidate's talents rather than the  number of jobs they've held

* Write  an "internal resume" that defines job  responsibilities for those already with a  job

* Use E-Mail, the talent banks of the  Internet, and electronic job  searches

Along with all these strategies, The New  Perfect Resume includes all the  hallmarks of a great resume book, including 50 samples of  winning resumes, easy-to-use drafting forms,  special resumes for recent graduates, salary  negotiation strategies, and suggestions on how to write a  perfect cover letter.

A classic in  the field of career development, The  New Perfect Resume is sure to become the  new standard upon which all other resume books are  compared.
