Being able to write a great resume for yourself is a game changer.
A great resume will open the door to new employment, promotion opportunities and a dynamic, progressive and high earning career.
This book will help anyone looking to get a new job, change their career or who is targeting that big promotion.
Written by a respected and experienced resume writer and employment expert Marginal Gains sets out to empower the reader to write the best possible version of their resume.
Marginal Gains proposes that there is no individual technique or 'trick' that makes a resume effective. In reality a resume is constructed in a number of smaller ways: the 'marginal gains' of the title.
Written in straight forward, no-nonsense language the book describes 80 simple and easy steps to improving your own resume to get the very best out of your career history.
The book covers the all-important questions such as:
How long should it be?
What does a great resume look like?
How to write an effective Professional Profile that sells you in a few lines
How to write your previous employment history to showcase your experience and skills
How to cover your education and training history effectively
How to maximise your references
Also covered within the book are important aspects beyond the resume such as:
How to write professional cover letters which encourage the reader to read your resume
Working with recruitment agencies to achieve your career goals
