Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) December 14, 2008
With a deepening recession, a lot of people are looking for a job -- and job hunts usually begin with a resume. In her new book, "Happy About My Resume, 50 Tips for Building a Better Document to Secure a Brighter Future," Barbara Safani outlines a step-by-step strategy for writing a resume that gets results. Safani guides job seekers on writing a resume or improving an existing resume.
A resume represents an entire career. It's a personal sales tool. Yet job seekers only have seconds to make a good impression. That's because hiring managers only look at a resume for 15 seconds or less. A poorly written resume that doesn't stand out in the pile means someone else will get called for that interview.
The book gives 50 tips to write a compelling and powerful resume. Safani provides practical and easy-to-follow advice as well as numerous samples that show each of her tips in action. Her popular career management tips have been featured on CNN, ABC, FOX, and ROBtv. With her sound advice, Safani brings out the best in everyone, personally and professionally.
