As a recent mature graduate, I have found this book extremely useful for freshening up my CV and following through a logical process that has given me a better response to my job applications. The book enables you to consider various types of CV and more than that, it lets you make the decision which is best for your chosen type of work. This is useful because it relies on the reader's intellect to look at parts of their CV that they might not have considered before.
I have been applying for many different kinds of work and this book has helped refine the parts I hadn't thought about, from simple things like the presentation, the difference between chronological, creative and functional CV and leading onto the simple 'dos and don'ts' of when you get to the stage of sending them to prospective employers.
Whether you are starting from the very beginning - when it can be rather daunting! - and trying to work out what you should or should not include or even if you're just looking for an update to that all-important first step towards your perfect job, this is definitely recommended!
