3.0 out of 5 stars Good Mechanics 19 Oct. 2013
By Daniel G. Lebryk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a book about the mechanical aspects of writing a resume. If you have already gone through the most difficult part of a job search, all that background thinking to assemble your marketing program, then this is the book for you.

This is a series of 50 topics mostly focused on language, formatting, and delivery. Those topics are excellent, well covered with a lot of detail. The area where this book falls apart is in the all the preparation to get to those mechanical steps. For those critical steps, the author offers a lot of links back to her business. She also promotes testing services her business offers. I don't mind a certain level of self-promotion; unfortunately this approached the line that the book is an advertisement or enticement to purchase other things. It feels a lot like in app purchases to keep playing the game, or every fifteen minutes a series of commercials. Subtly goes a long ways in sales.

The book could use editing. Where the author talks about proofreading a resume over and over to make sure there are no mistakes, she should have taken the advice with her book. Practicing what you preach is critical to getting buy in. I am also not a huge fan of people that promise to update things in the future; the author leads with that statement. The intention is good, I would rather they simply do the updates and not talk about what they may or may not do in the future.

There is some incredibly useful information in this book. It really hits stride in the middle with examples of words to avoid and use, formatting word documents, how to edit your resume to stand out, and how to be honest about your skills. Those are important parts of a job search, and the core of the author's business. Sadly most people think the work starts and ends there.

Although I hate the Dummy aspect of the titles, I think a better starting point for a job search is Resumes and Interviews for Dummies. Both books do a great job of developing a job marketing plan. This book could be useful when it comes time to actually type and edit the resume.

There are useful parts to this book. It is a good mechanical approach to resumes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent hands-on guide for retooling a resume 24 Dec. 2013
By Ryan G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recently went through a career change in which the work I had been doing for the last nine years was not obviously applicable to the field in which I was applying. Bernstein's guide was incredibly useful in helping me to understand how I could deviate from the white-bread chronological resume to best highlight and illustrate the skills I had developed in that time that would be of interest to an employer.

The end result is that I actually got the first job for which I applied, one that many people may have considered a bit of of reach for an individual returning to a career path from which he deviated nearly a decade ago. But I'm convinced that Bernstein's guide helped me to better understand how to sell myself and what made me unique as an applicant. A resume is all about getting the foot in the door, getting to the interview. This book will help you use your resume to do just that - to stand out from other applicants and get that chance to sell your best self to a potential employer. It's a total steal for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch Graphics for All Devices 24 April 2014

I love the book because Brenda has picked a Winning Team to demonstrate her knowledge and experience in the ebook, How to Write a Winning Resume."

The ebook is full of great advice and tips. I think it has great content for college undergraduates that want to get a head start on others. Some fortunate people don't need resumes, as they have built a reputation that gets them in the door with a handshake or two.

I was looking for phildub.com in the ebook. That to me is a great way to set yourself apart from other winning resumes.
Well done Brenda! Thanks for providing your talent and experience in a smart fully content loaded ebook. The ebook looks great, flows well on the Amazon Cloud Reader and small hand-held Android devices (Kindle for Android).

I think this book is good, almost great. It gives great ideas on how to find my best assets and achievements - where to place them on my resume etc. But I also feel like it's a walking advertisement for what may be lacking. It tells me to do something and if I feel shoet on it, I can click on the link that leads me to their site and a professional will do it. For fun, I did click on a link! And holy cow!!! The prices are high for resume help! How can someone who bought a resume book for help, be able to afford these prices... Most people are unemployed or part of the middle class median.
Anyway, the book has some fabulous ideas and should be followed. I'm still working on my resume. It's not as easy as it seems. Even with help!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptionally helpful content 28 Jan. 2014
By Griff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I gave the book a 5 star rating because of it's structure, the content and the simplicity of the language Brenda used.

I knew that the structure and content of the resume I had written previously, contained numerous improvement opportunities however I was not quite sure where to start to restructure it in an effort to make it attractive, structurally sound and meaningful. Brenda's book provided me with the simple to understand step-by-step guide and information I needed to restructure my resume into an extremely professional looking document.

In closing and from a personal perspective, I found it personally rewarding to be able to develop my own professional looking resume as opposed to contracting the services of a professional resume writer to do it for me. I believe that when an individual has ownership of a deliverable, it makes it all that more special.

I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone wishing to develop their own best-in-class resume.
