Table of Contents: The Art of Writing a Resume


There are many perceptions about writing resumes. Though there is no dearth of books on this subject, there is definitely a lack of good reference books written by people with industy experience those who actually review the resumes, conduct interviews, and select candidates. After interviewing and recruiting technical writers for many years, I have come to recognize quickly what impresses me and what does not, what makes me consider a candidate, what makes me call a candidate for an interview, and what immediately closes the door on the candidate. The information presented here is base on my experiences with resumes.

Chapter 7. Cover Letter

Chapter 8. 25 Tips For Creating Resume

Chapter 9. Fudging Resume
