High praise from book reviewers:
“Tailored specifically to those military professionals about to embark upon civilian careers, this manual utilizes suitable examples of resumes and cover letters. The aim is to turn the job search into a successful endeavor and, to that end, basic interviewing skills are covered, as are initial steps toward identifying potential and appropriate employers. The book’s far lengthier second section unfolds in a series of alphabetical listings targeting the fields of aviation to transportation, with subgroups for each and every category of skills. Entering the job market is an arduous task under the best of circumstances. A guide that significantly translates veterans’ experiences into viable repertoires of achievement.” -BOOKLIST
“Military veterans about to move into civilian employment will find this book useful. Part One of the book explains how to plan an effective job campaign, including the negotiation of salary, how a resume and cover letter go together, and how to research prospective employers. The second part of the book consists of many sample resumes and cover letters that helped veterans actually land jobs.” – UNITED STATES NAVAL INSTITUTE
“These excellent new guides don’t just provide the usual coverage on how to write a resume. They provide industry-specific examples, industry-specific tips and cautions, and industry-specific strategies based on real-world resumes. Since many technical types aren’t writers, this comes as a special gift; select a winning format, plug in your background specs, and away you go. It’s that easy–with Real-Resumes in hand.”– THE MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW

  2. Let me tell you something I really thought that the book was much better help

    to write an awsome resume being that I am looking for a job,

    but is not, is just a regular book w/ few samples of resumes and that’s it.

    It doesn’t tell or show you how to write a really impressive resume.

    I am dissapointed w/ this purchase, my money was not well spend.

    If I could return it I will.
