Reader Feedback


"Mr. Samuel shares his roadmap for developing an effective resume; ideas and an overall approach developed over many years as a recruiter, manager, coach, and mentor. This is an easy to follow book that guides the reader through the structure and development of an effective resume. Key points are captured in bold at the end of each chapter. I tended to jump to the highlight points to familiarize myself with them, then move to the start of that chapter and read though the details. This book is well worth the small investment. I can say from personal experience that this approach is a recipe for success! A piece of advice, do not pick and choose ideas from the book thinking that in some areas you know better than the author on this subject. There is a reason for each of the things mentioned here. Follow the recipe."

"Creating a resume and keeping it up to date is one of the most basic things you can do to optimize your career, but it can also be one of the most difficult things to convince yourself to do proactively. Part of this is associated with not having a clear action plan since there are so many formats and opinions to sort through. This book does a great job of providing an optimal format, breaking things down step by step, and dispelling many of the myths that are touted by the 'experts.' Do yourself a favor by following the advice in this book rather than getting lost in the myriad of opinions that surround this topic. Whether you are just starting out, or if you are a career professional with many years of experience, following the guidance provided in "Optimize your Resume" will help you optimize your career.
