Review:

At last, a guide to résumé writing whose every page is as quickly scannable as they say a good résumé should be. In 72 brightly designed pages, this pocket-size career helper walks you through the entire résumé writing (or rewriting!) process, from determining your overall career objectives and strategy and targeting your résumé to specific fields or employers to drafting and refining your résumé's content, selling your experience, deciding on the overall format and look, and adapting your résumé for a career change, a midcareer job move, or a return to the job market after an absence. Throughout, loads of résumé samples, examples, checklists, and flow charts help you piece it all together, including tips on replying to job advertisements, canvassing employers, using the Internet, keeping up your job search, and analyzing your own career profile.

It's worth mentioning that the book is also part of reference publisher Dorling Kindersley's Essential Managers series--20 itty-bitty li'l books on business and career topics ranging from communication, leadership, and decision making to the management of time, budgets, change, meetings, people, projects, and teams. Combining the For Dummies book series's talent for breaking down a lot of information into bite-size bits and sidebars with Dorling Kindersley's signature design style of crisp, classy graphics on a gleaming white backdrop, they don't represent the cutting edge of business thinking and they don't necessarily reflect any unique individual perspective. Instead, it's as though someone collated the best general thinking on these 20 topics and rolled them out into 72 brightly designed and easy-to-read pages, studded along the way with boxed tips, color shots of a multiracial cast of "coworkers" animatedly hashing through the workplace issues of the day, and a self-test of one's skills in the topic at hand on the last few pages of each volume. Again, they're not for anyone looking for more in-depth or focused help on any of the subjects they cover, but they're perfect as a quickie general-interest reference... and let's face it, they're so cute and look so smart in a neat little stack or row that you'll probably want to buy a whole bunch to give to your entire staff or department. --Timothy Murphy
