Packaging Yourself: The Targeted Resume

""

 

Does your résumé correspond to your LinkedIn profile? Have you simply recounted your work history in your résumé, or have you "packaged" yourself to be seen the way you want to be seen? PACKAGING YOURSELF is the only book on the market that uses case studies to teach you the nuances of résumé preparation, as well as how to combine it with your LinkedIn profile.

The average résumé is looked at for only ten seconds. Make yours stand out. Learn how to highlight your strengths and hide your weaknesses. Prepare a marketing piece that dynamically presents you just the way you want prospective employers to see you. Learn how to present yourself effectively on LinkedIn and other media. You'll learn to create an exciting résumé that will make the reader want to call you in for a meeting, and will guide the interviewing process and bring out the best points about yourself, develop the accomplishment statements that form the backbone of your résumé, and write a summary that increases your chance of getting just the job you want.
