This guide is written by an experienced head-hunter. Having looked through thousands of job applications and CVs, the author wishes to share his advice about which of them catch his eye. Many of his recommendations are applied common sense, but there are some surprises mixed in. Where the advice isn't surprising, the author takes care to enrich it with his insider information. For example, whilst we all know that clichés are to be avoided, Giammatteo provides a list of bland words and phrases, s ...more

What was really useful about this book was that the author has written it from the perspective of the HR manager, who is of course, the person most likely to get first sight of your resume. This is invaluable as you probably only get one shot and if yours isn’t the one which jumps out and grabs attention, then you probably won’t get the job and will end up in the file or even worse, the wastepaper bin.

There are literally hundreds of books out there all claiming to help you write that killer res

If you want a book that will take you step by step though the makings of an excellent resume than this is the book for you. Forget expensive websites and job consultants, this is all the advice you need if you are job hunting. The book takes you through all the common mistakes and shows you how to avoid them when you are writing your own resume. Apparently there are common mistakes that most resumes contain which result in them ending up lining the waste bin, and as this book is written from the ...more

I entered the giveaway for a copy of this book because I am currently revising my resume and thought it would be helpful to get some current advice. I did in fact find the book very helpful in some respects. The author, Giacomo Giammatieo, writes the book from the perspective of the person who is, in actuality, the most important person looking at a resume: the headhunter or HR professional. This person has the power to move you on through the process or throw you in the trash. The author gives ...more

If you only buy one book on how to write the perfect resume, "No mistakes resumes" should be your pick. It is complete, clearly explained and suitable for all varieties of job seeker, despite being fairly short. I have implemented the author's advice, and it seems to have borne fruit.

The book's content is all substantial; concrete examples are supplied, and little of the advice would be obvious to the uninitiated. The author devotes roughly equal space to issues of structure--what to include, ho

Jim is an executive recruiter. Jim is an executive recruiter with OVER 25 years experience. Jim has looked at thousands of resumes. Jim knows what makes a great resume and what is passed over. I once read that the average recruiter gives a resume a 15 second glance. If your resume hasn't caught their attention, you're done.

In the two years I have known Jim, he is a very kicked back guy. Don't let that fool you though. This is a guy who can educate you in the ART AND SCIENCE of resume writing to

Forget what you thought you knew about writing a resume. Giacomo Giammatteo helps you get noticed because he tells you exactly what it is that employers are looking for in a resume. He covers everything from the best way to write a cover letter to what not to include in the text of the resume. This is a must have book for all job seekers, young and old.

This book contains practical advice for writing your resume. Some of the things make you think "duh" but are steps we often forget about when rushing to finish a resume for a job posting. There is nothing covered that is impractical or overwhelming. I highly recommend this book if you are looking to start your resume or update it and want to ensure you do so properly.

I live in Texas now, but I grew up in Cleland Heights, a mixed ethnic neighborhood in Wilmington, Delaware that sat on the fringes of the Italian, Irish and Polish neighborhoods. The main characters of Murder Takes Time grew up in Cleland Heights too, and many of the scenes in the book were taken from real-life experiences.

Somehow I survived the transition to adulthood, but when my kids were young
