The Candy Maker Resume: - Resume Writing Hacks
(Resume Psychology Volume 2)
This book is the "how-to" for creating effective resume content for people who have no idea where to start or how to begin.
It seemed an unlikely problem to have from my perspective.
But over the years it became apparent (Thank You: Blane & Larry) that there is a need for "something" for those in need of a "show-me-how” set of relatable and repeatable action steps for resume content creation.
Much of what is covered in the book can be found in this blog. But if learn differently, prefer books to PowerPoint decks, you now have a choice.
I am excited to get this information out as my friends Blane & Larry have said all along "people need examples." Thank you both for pushing me to do more on this topic.
While the methods are low-tech, the payoff should be a confidence in your resume content to allow you to shift your focus to far more important things like networking with people and navigating multiple offers.
From the back cover of the book:
