Description
Unlike most resume "experts," Tony Beshara doesn't merely write resumes. As a veteran placement specialist who's been featured regularly on the Dr. Phil show, Tony actually uses resumes to get people jobs. Now, in this dynamic book, he's drawing on expertise gained from placing more than 8,500 professions to help you create a powerful resume that stands out from other applications. Unbeatable Resumes takes readers step-by-step through the resume creation process, including tips on how to utilize keywords effectively, use gaps in employment and job changes to your advantage, and enhance your resume with a concise, dynamic cover letter. By pairing Tony's experiences with the results from a survey of more than 3,000 hiring managers, executives, HR specialists, and other hiring authorities, the book details the most widely critical components of a well-written and effective resume. You'll also discover how to ensure your resume gets read by the right people; what employers look for on applications and what turns them off; how to customize a resume for a particular job; and the true value and detriment of digital tools including video resumes, job-search websites, and social networking sites like Facebook and LinkedIn. With detailed examples and discussions on the assets and pitfalls of real-life resumes submitted for jobs in a wide range of industries--including healthcare, banking, construction, technology, administration, and sales and marketing--Unbeatable Resumes shows job seekers of all types how to present themselves in the best possible light--and land the best possible position.
