Reading other reviews the point is well made about gaining a consensus from recruitment specialists and agencies. This book offers recent grounded research about the trends in cvs backed up by Lees' practical approach and importantly numerous examples of how to sharpen whole cvs as well as the enhancing their various parts.
So for job searchers a key resource to maximise success with clear guidance to develop the cv both on paper and online as well as ideas for a holistic approach to your next position.
Well worth the investment
In this, as in other publications, the writing style is accessible. The scenarios he draws on are widely applicable and chime with the situations that, in my experience, job seekers typically face. It's comprehensive, but not off-puttingly dense. I think its particular strength, compared to other books I've consulted, is that it enables job seekers to see CVs through a recruiter's eyes - a good example of this is the inclusion of a sample annotated 'unfocused' CV. The book is a highly practical manual with easy-to-follow steps underpinned by a clear rationale - as busy people, we generally all need to be convinced to spend enough time on revamping our CV/job application materials and Lees provides compelling arguments for committing to the various activities that support the development of an effective document/online text. Also, he's not too proud to acknowledge that even a knockout CV isn't appropriate for every job-hunting situation.
If you put 10 career professionals in a room to discuss what makes a good CV, like as not there'll be arguments within the first 10 seconds, but it's hard to disagree with the advice offered in this book which I'd recommend for both job seekers and career consultants as a handy reference tool.
