9780764554711: Resumes For Dummies

Over the past decade, resumes have undergone dramatic changes in how they are submitted to recruiters. Technology advances have redefined the recruiting industry. It started with electronic resumes that had to be “scannable” using OCR software. Then resumes began their frenzied dart across the Internet, where, to assure safe arrival, they came dressed in the pedestrian garb of plain text (ASCII) embodied within e-mail. But now, change is upon us once again. The handsome resume made portable has made its return, and there is an emergence of online screening quizzes that determine whether your resume is accepted by recruiters and employers or buried at the bottom of the pile.

The fourth edition of Resumes For Dummies is for anyone who needs to discover what works and what doesn’t work when representing their work history with a resume. No matter what your experience, set of circumstances, or familiarity with resume writing, this clearly written, up-to-date guide will help you to

  • Create a resume that takes advantage of today’s technology
  • Increase your chances of getting that dream job
  • Craft a “stand out” resume that’ll get your foot in the door
  • Understand all the changes in the world of resumes
  • Discover the right way and right places to send your resume

This new edition has loads of advice that will make your resume stand out from the online crowd. Resumes For Dummies, 4th Edition, also covers the following topics and more:

  • Getting your resume out there
  • Writing a resume that fits your specific needs
  • Choosing the right format for your resume
  • Selecting stand out words that can bring good news
  • Submitting your resume online
  • Recognizing resume problems and applying solutions

In the pages of Resumes For Dummies, 4th Edition, you get a sampling of stand out resumes and special needs resumes. You also get updated technical information (gathered from a wide variety of recruiting professionals) paired with classic strategies and smooth moves from the author’s three decades of career reporting. With all of this in hand, you'll be able to develop and distribute a state-of-the-art resume that says you’re too superior to ignore.
