Book Reviews

The stodgy, old-fashioned typewritten résumé is a thing of the past—and Barron’s has a brand-new résumé manual designed to propel today’s job seekers toward success! The emphasis is on organizing one’s job qualifications and career experience to make the best possible presentation, but this how-to book focuses on a far broader range of job-seeking techniques than simply writing a good résumé. The author advises on taking full advantage of career planning internet sources and college career service centers. She also points out differences between paper résumés and electronic résumés and discusses methods of preparing each. In many career fields, a well-presented paper résumé will never go out of date, and this book explains how to organize résumé material, present past accomplishments succinctly, then “sell” one’s skills with dynamic sentences and power verbs. It also shows how to prepare scannable and e-mailable résumés, create dynamic cover letters, include photos and references when required, select appropriate type faces and paper colors, and much more. The author also inspires job seekers with scores of model résumés that apply to everyone from first-time job hunters to executives seeking to advance their careers. -Amazon.com
