How do you get your resume to the top of the pile? When you apply for a job your resume is compared to hundreds of others. You've only got the time it takes the recruiter to scan the pages to show how brilliant you are. How do you impress when you don't know what employers are actually looking for? This book tells you what they want to read - and how to write it.
It is the only resume book based on Australian and New Zealand research that reveals what employers look for and how the recruitment industry operates. With examples of resumes that employers love and those they loathe, you'll find out what works in the real world and learn how to put it into practice through examples, exercises, samples and templates.
It shows you how to create a brilliant resume from scratch or revitalise your existing one; identify your key skills and write a competency statement; address selection criteria and those tricky resume questions, and much, much more.
