How to Write a Winning Resume
Even though your résumé is the most important document in your career, writing it is not something to look forward to. Not knowing where to start or what to include makes it hard to start and in a lot of instances, hard to finish. Whether you are using the résumé for a direct application, or to upload to online professional networking sites, understanding the strategies that the professionals use to short list applicants and the most effective writing style will improve your chances of being invited to interview.
If you are a student or a senior level executive, this book has been written to give you a clear understanding of what really is a résumé. The content in this book provides you with the theory behind a résumé, the purpose of the résumé (for both the applicant and the recruiter), content that is beneficial to highlight on your résumé and the different styles of a résumé. Once you understand the basics and purpose of this extremely important document, the book then provides descriptions for each recommended résumé section. Most importantly, several different résumés written for specific clients are included to support your own résumé development.
