The Blue Sky Guide To Resume Writing
Chances are the answer is no.
It’s not the manager’s fault or the economy or the amount of competition. Honestly… it’s your resume. Most likely, it simply doesn’t show the difference you would make. And that means it doesn’t stand out or inspire hiring managers to meet you.
Can a resume really do all that? Absolutely. In fact, simple language and formatting refinements can improve your response rate by as much as 50%. Based on over 20 years of real world hiring experience, this guide will show you — step-by-step, example by example — exactly how to do that.
You’ll also get 20 pre-formatted templates (and tons of real-life examples) to make creating your resume as easy as possible.
Once you apply our time-tested principles, you’ll see a difference right away. And you’ll soon be sending out your new resume with renewed confidence.
