The resume is an important tool that has a big responsibility. The better part of our lives—over 160 hours a month, on average—are spent working at a job that this little piece of paper is supposed to help us find. There is a lot of pressure to get it just right, but somehow, despite all the books and information out there, most people don’t have resumes that do justice to their talent or help them get closer to their ideal job. Finding a job without the right resume is like trying to freeze ice cubes by boiling water.
It is not an over exaggeration to say that understanding and refining this tool can change your life. I have been on both sides of the table, as an employee and as a hiring manager. Over the years, I have helped thousands of people create the right resume; however, there are millions of you out there, so this book is dedicated to you. My wish is that it helps take away the mystery behind this intimidating document once and for all and finally helps you write the resume that gives you confidence to get the dream job you deserve!
