Peterson’s Latest Title Helps Applicants Rethink the Job Search Process

We are excited and pleased to have an author of Torin Ellis' caliber write a book about how to maximize your job search.

Written by an expert in the field of recruiting, and far more than a simple "write a better resume" book, the forthcoming Rip the Resume takes readers through the steps necessary to open a new chapter in their careers. Written by Torin Ellis, a human capital strategist with 18 years of experience, the book translates his mastery of career development, coaching, building diversity strategies, and recruiting for top talent into a textbook for all readers.

A quick reference manual of job search and power prep tips, Rip the Resume covers the foundations of representing oneself professionally on social media as a potential candidate, deconstructing and reconstructing resumes, researching companies, preparing for and closing interviews, and post-interview tips and strategies. Written for all levels of job searchers, the book details how job seekers can gain an edge over their competition by rethinking their approach to not only resumes, but the whole job search process.

"We are excited and pleased to have an author of Torin Ellis' caliber write a book about how to maximize your job search," says Dominic Rotondi, Executive Director of Peterson's®, a Nelnet company. "This book converts years of experience into practical methods for job applicants worldwide. Coupled with Peterson's long-standing commitment to helping job seekers and college graduates, we are proud to assist them in finding the right job."

Rip the Resume will be available in bookstores September 20, 2016.
