Job seekers need to learn how to stand out in a crowded marketplace. James Hale, found of Path Choices, has written a best selling resume book that offers the type of advice people pay thousands of dollars for. "Getting Seen" is available at Amazon.
October 15, 2012 (Newswire) - "Getting Seen: The Ultimate Guide to Creating the Most Important Document of Your Life - Your Resume" hit the #1 ranking on the Amazon Kindle store under "Resumes." The resume book from career guidance expert James Hale also hit the # 3 spot under the "Job Hunting" category within the Amazon Kindle store.
"Getting Seen" provides unique advice on standing out in a crowded marketplace, something that is desperately needed by job seekers in this difficult economy. The book dispels the misguided rumors that run rampant in the typical resume advice. Unfortunately, most resumes are nothing more than lifeless lists of a candidate's job history. They don't tell what the candidate has actually done, where he has done it, or why it was important.
"This is a book that gets to the heart of resume writing and that heart is the idea of using the resume as a teaching tool," explained James D. Smith, Author and President of Iron 2 Iron Equipping. "I've been in the personal development business for almost 20 years and have not come across a better resource for the job seeker or career changer. People pay thousands of dollars for the advice and coaching that is in Getting Seen."
This book examines exactly what recruiters, human resources personnel, and hiring managers are looking for in the resumes that they receive each day, and how you can give it to them. If you follow James Hale's advice, you will drastically increase the odds that you will stand out and that recruiters will call you for a face-to-face interview where you can further wow them with your skills and professionalism.
"I wrote this for any potential job applicant who wants to stand out from the crowd," explained Hale. "If you want the same old resume advice, this book is not for you. If you want to do some pre-resume work and create a tool that immediately puts you in the top 10 percent of job searchers, read on."
Hale will show you what employers have come to prefer in terms of resume content, length, and format. These preferences have changed recently due to dramatic changes in technology and increased resume traffic. The author will also help you understand the functions of a resume and the psychological profile of the person who evaluates it.
"Getting Seen: The Ultimate Guide to Creating the Most Important Document of Your Life - Your Resume" will give you the tools you need to land the job you want. The book from publisher All Star Press is available exclusively through Amazon.com for the Kindle eReader, Kindle App, and can be read online with any device through the Kindle Cloud.
