5.0 out of 5 stars The most effective methods to write a winning resume! 8 Feb 2007
By Bernard Shaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As a Certified Professional Resume Writer and Certified Federal Resume Writer, I can confidently say that this is the best resume creation book that I have read! It stays above the fray of traditional resume writers and offers straightforward direction as to how to write the type of resume that will do its job of grabbing the attention of the reader in the first 10-15 seconds. Jay Block did a masterful job of presenting his Organizational Message Chart format that most anyone can apply to their individual resume. This is well worth buying!
4.0 out of 5 stars A good book but... 10 April 2013
By B. Montie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have actually read this book several times and I have found it very useful. The only problem I have had with it is that the author helps you think about all this great information about yourself but it is not always apparent where it will be used in the actual resume. It's a very sophisticated way of writing resumes and a little more guidance would be nice.
