“Learn how to market yourself through a stand-out resume and cover letter, and then make a strong impression during the job interview.
I've worked with many students and professionals looking to advance their careers and all facing the same roadblocks. In this book I will share with you what I've learned from my own experience and what I've seen make others successful.
If you are a student struggling to get an interview, or failing to get a job offer, then you will find direction and encouragement in this book.
Maybe you already have a job, but feel stuck because you can’t find a different one, or worried because you don’t think your credentials apply anymore. You can also find some guidance here.
I don’t have it all figured out, but I have compiled best practices from people who have been very successful in getting interviews, jobs, and awesome careers."
There's no lack of books out there to help with various aspects of a job search. There are a few things that set this one apart from others I've read in the past. One is length. It focuses on what's important without a lot of extraneous information or repeating things that could easily be found elsewhere. For example, you won't find page upon page of possible resume formats. But you will find discussion on what parts of the resume are critical, when it makes sense to depart from the norm, and an emphasis on what your goal should be when developing the resume or customizing it for a particular position. Although it has been a few years since I've been involved in either, from my experience, both looking for jobs and as a hiring manager, Tye's advice here is solid.
No significant issues.
