Job Seekers and the Unemployed Can Learn to Stand Out in a Crowded Marketplace
Tarpon Springs, FL (i-newswire) October 3, 2012 — Getting noticed in this job market is a challenging task, especially in a difficult economy where more and more people are unemployed and looking for work.
Career guidance expert James Hale of Path Choice has the solution for job seekers in his new Kindle book “Getting Seen,” available free starting Thursday.
“This book is for any potential job applicant who wants to stand out from the crowd,” explained Hale. “If you want the same old resume advice, this book is not for you. If you want to do some pre-resume work and create a tool that immediately puts you in the top 10 percent of job searchers, read on.”
“Getting Seen: The Ultimate Guide to Creating the Most Important Document of Your Life – Your Resume” is now available for the popular Kindle eReader and it can be downloaded free for two days starting Thursday, October 4. It is available exclusively through Amazon.com for the Kindle eReader, Kindle App, and read online with any device through the Kindle Cloud.
The career guidance advice in “Getting Seen” is based on fact. It dispels the misguided rumors that run rampant in the typical resume advice. Unfortunately, most resumes are nothing more than lifeless lists of a candidate’s job history. They don’t tell what the candidate has actually done, where he has done it, or why it was important. On the other extreme are resumes that are boiling over with detail, running into 20-25 page, or more. These authors have forgotten that a resume is ultimately meant to get you through the door, not do the interview as well.
“This is a book that gets to the heart of resume writing and that heart is the idea of using the resume as a teaching tool,” explained James D. Smith, Author and President of Iron 2 Iron Equipping. “I’ve been in the personal development business for almost 20 years and have not come across a better resource for the job seeker or career changer. People pay thousands of dollars for the advice and coaching that is in Getting Seen.“
This book examines exactly what recruiters, human resources personnel, and hiring managers are looking for in the resumes that they receive each day, and how you can give it to them. If you follow James Hale’s advice, you will drastically increase the odds that you will stand out and that recruiters will call you for a face-to-face interview where you can further wow them with your skills and professionalism.
Hale will show you what employers have come to prefer in terms of resume content, length, and format. These preferences have changed recently due to dramatic changes in technology and increased resume traffic. The author will also help you understand the functions of a resume and the psychological profile of the person who evaluates it.
You will also learn how to present yourself so hiring personnel will see you in the position they are filling. You will have a shine on your resume that gets you noticed.
“Getting Seen: The Ultimate Guide to Creating the Most Important Document of Your Life – Your Resume” will give you the tools you need to land the job you want. The book is available free through the Amazon.com Kindle store Thursday and Friday of this week.
