Based on today's real-world job search trends, Modernize Your Resume shows you how to craft a winning resume to meet the complexities of today's highly competitive and technologically driven employment market. The 2nd edition has been updated with new resume samples, new designs, and new ATS and e-resume guidelines, along with new chapters for jobseekers with special circumstances - career change, military transition, and return to work. The entire job search process is evolving at a remarkably rapid pace, and your resume is at the foundation of it all. In this book, you'll learn to:
  • Write tight, lean, clean, and laser-focused content that allows you to tell your whole career story in half the words to keep your reader engaged. Focus on information that is relevant to your target market and integrate keywords that are vital to being found online.
  • Present important information quickly in a resume format that prominently displays your skills, experience, education, and other credentials as they support your current career objectives.
  • Create a distinctive design to make your resume stand out and capture attention. Getting noticed is step #1, so make that happen and you're on your way.
  • Adopt a new mindset and deeper understanding of how to use today's modern resume for both person-to-person job search as well as electronic, digital, and mobile search technologies.
The 100+ resume samples demonstrate these strategies in action for real-life job seekers who've excelled in their search campaigns. The samples showcase the resume writing work of Enelow, Kursmark, and many of their colleagues who are also well respected for their expertise in resume strategy, writing, format, and design.

Clear guidelines and easy-to-follow examples give you practical know-how for building your own powerful resume that will serve all of your job search needs. You'll learn what works, why it works, and how you can make it work for you.
