4.0 out of 5 stars
A highly practical manual that offers help rather than advice, 7 Oct 2013
If you are serious about making your cv an asset in your position search, this book is great value. It covers lots of areas you would expect in terms of themes, layout, content, length. In addition, it considers other aspects to help give your cv that competitive edge. For example, how to compress your message whilst still ensuring it retains impact, how to turn information into evidence, and how to road test your draft cv and then refine it further. The FAQs section is particularly useful, with answers to "should i mention x, y, or z?", those small points that you could spend ages agonising over. Also very pertinent is the guidance on how employers will respond, as this is based on evidence gathered through research.
