As I said in my last review, I have a strong work history but had zero knowledge of what employers wanted to see when I wrote to them. I used to have a two-page cover letter with all sorts of information that I now realise should have been on my CV. Reading this book was an eye-opener and, coupled with my new CV that I wrote while reading The CV Book, I have, what I feel is, a strong, concise marketing tool to promote myself to employers.
If you want to be taken seriously in the workplace, you have to give your job applications your best shot. This book, along with the other ones I bought by James Innes, has given me the confidence to go for the jobs I really want.
Good advice is priceless.
In a nutshell, 220 pages of repetitive tips but little substance and examples.
This book had some great examples on how you can add value to your application by creating a great cover letter. Almost enticing the recruiter to read your CV in the first place if you like. I understand that there are sooooo many applicants for each job vacancy nowadays that I decided I needed all the help I could get. It really fits the bill thank you five stars from me!
