  1. This book does offer some good tips but I wish that it had a better section for New Grads. If you’ve been in the business world for a few years then this book does offer some good advice. However, if you’re just out of school, you might want to consider another book.

    What a disappointment! This book is really geared towards people with a wealth of experience. Every example seems to cite 12 years of X, successful projects in Y, AND you’re friends with the hiring manager. (I’d assume, though, that with all that under your belt, you’ve probably written a cover letter or two.) If you’re a new grad or don’t have a background in your field, you’re not going to find much help here.

    Another issue I had with the book – the resumes can be incredibly corny. I like puns and googled quotes as much as the next person, but I would never include them on a resume. I found a lot of the resumes lacked sophistication in exchange for a more ‘personal, informal’ tone.

    Overall, I didn’t get much help from the book and would recommend passing on this one.

  3. When I first saw your web I said to myself these people cant be for real

    guess what you are for real. All of your products are affordable and

    the quality is amazing for the price. I purchased several books mostly

    about how to write the best cover letter and resume the books were used

    and in awesome condition. There is one problem your shipping and handling cost are through the roof please try to work out some deals with this issue.

    Best Regards.

    Great book!

    You can forget about writing boring cover letter that is becoming predictable by using this book as a guide.

    Susan did a great job by using lots of example, regardless of the situation you are in.

    I think it is a must for any serious job-seeker.
