My future's so bright I gotta wear shades! Thank goodness I found Execume! I was having a hard time getting interviews and decided to do a little research on resume writing. I followed the simple steps in the book and updated my resume into a powerful representation of myself! Many interviews followed. I was told that my resume stood head and shoulders above the rest and that I was immediately chosen to come in for an interview out of 700 other resumes submitted. I landed an amazing job shortly thereafter! But the best part of all of this is that Execume helped me increase my salary by $15,000!
This book contains the action verbs, the resumes to write by industry, and sample cover letters to ensure the job hunter has the tools needed to be presented in the most favorable light to an employer. I rewrote my resume with this book and landed the opportunity I really wanted. This book will motivate anyone to succeed. I think this resume book is the best written I have seen because it is a complete source.
A no nonsense book on resume writing
I was fortunate to be in a Masters program at Georgia Tech and to have the opportunity to attend a session with Gayle Oliver as a guest speaker. If you are looking for the ultimate guide to writing a truly good resume, this is it.
GOOD DEAL, November 25, 2000
What a great deal, this is not only a book, but also includes an interactive CD. Having the CD makes all the difference. It allows you to prepare your resume and cover letter using the examples provided by the author. Why struggle through this process when you can do it so simply and easily right on your computer with the CD.
Best Resume Book I have ever found
Execume was purchased as a gift for my college age daughter. It is the single best book I have ever read on the subject.
Execume is different! The author is so positive. She helps the job searcher believe in himself/herself. The examples were great in fact the depth of entry- level resumes sold me on the book. However there is plenty for everyone. The author provides numerous examples by profession and format.
I would recommend Execume as a great guide to develop a resume. I only wish the book were available when I graduated from college or last changed jobs.

Don't go looking for a new job -- and especially don't seek a new career without having read this first! It can help shorten your search. There's a lot packed into this 270+ pages! Don't miss a page!
