Career Essentials: The Resume (9780986968235): Dale Mayer: Books. Resume writing is a topic I have written on many times over the last decade. I currently have one published book on this subject matter. When I looked to see if I had anything more I could offer on this topic, I realize that today's job hunter, like so much of the world, is looking for a fast solution to a problem. They needed an easy to read book on just writing/updating their resume. They may or may not also need information on cover letters, interviews, the job hunt etc. Our world has become one of instant gratification. People have information at their fingertips today, they don't want to have to sort through extraneous information in order to find the material they need. They need to be able to put their fingers on it now!I decided to give today's job hunters exactly what they need. I streamlined the information and took each topic and am addressing them fully in individual books. That's how the Essential Series came about. For over a decade, I've written on some wonderful topics that are close to my heart, but I haven't been always able to give the topic as much time and attention as I'd like to have. To that end, I've written Career Essentials: The Resume to fully address how to write or update your resume in simple, easy to follow, steps so that anyone can write a professional looking and sounding resume for themselves. Your resume is a marketing tool, and like all sales material, it needs to sell a product. In this case, you are the product. This book shows you which of the main resume formats you should chose depending on what industry you are in, the type of employment history you are coming from and the skills you have to offer. It shows the different building blocks of each format and addresses what should go into each on your resume. The book is condensed and chock full of the type of information that's necessary to get the job done. Like all my books, I work hard to present confusing material in an easy to understand way so that everyone can benefit from reading this book. I'll be addressing many other topics in a similar way as the Essential Series expands to other topics including gardening, lifestyle, finance and more.Stay tuned!
