"One common theme in my job search was feedback on my resume and I wanted to thank you again. I was at a company in San Francisco this week, and the final interviewer pulled out my resume and told me she thought the resume was "the best put together resume she had ever read" and was going to save the document to model her own after.

resume writing help - complete guide to resume writing ebookBeat the recession! My step-by step resume writing system will get you hired - even in a down economy.

If you've followed my free e-course, you know that you've probably been losing out on the opportunities you deserve because your resume doesn't truly communicate your value.

This is even more true now that the tough economic situation means there are less opportunities and more competition.

That's why I wrote this book.

"The Complete Guide to Resume Writing" takes you step-by-step through the resume writing process, all the way from blank page to job interview. (Check out the testimonials on the left-hand side of this page to see just how helpful my advice has been for others.)

I'm not going to give you one of those long sales pitches because I figure you already know whether you like my advice and my writing style based on the emails I've been sending. But I do want to let you know what's covered in the book so you know if it's right for you.

The system is the exact same approach I teach to the writers who work for me, and it's applicable to people at every stage of their career - from recent graduates to the most senior executives.

As you work your way through my system, you'll learn:

  • The secret ingredient that will bring your resume to life and dramatically boost the response rate to your resume, even if you change nothing else. Pages 94-95

  • The insider’s technique used by professional resume writers to provide proof that you are the right choice. Page 43-44

  • How to identify the one sales message that will show employers exactly why you are the employee they need. Page 49

  • The common resume mistakes that prevent other people from getting interviews and how to avoid them. Pages 13 - 20

  • Avoid the major blunder many people make right at the start of their resume – this one change alone will increase the number of interviews you are invited to. Page 71

  • Two strategic techniques to maximize the effectiveness of your resume, turning it into an eye-catching document that communicates your unique value Pages 117-120

  • The design mistakes that make up to 30% of resumes almost unreadable on certain computers – and how you can ensure that everyone sees your resume just as you intended it. Page 65

  • The key question you MUST answer in your resume - addressing this one question will dramatically increase your response rate. Page 19-20
  • Formatting devices and simple language refinements that improve your response rate by as much as 30%, 40% -- even 50% or more.

I know my techniques work - that's why I offer a no nonsense, no-hassle 100% money back guarantee. If you don't think my book lived up to my promises, just let me know and I'll refund your money.

“The Art and Science of Turning Words into Job Search Success”

If you came here from my free course, you already know a little about me, but for everyone else, my name is Louise Fletcher. I've had over 15 years of recruiting experience and for the last 5 years I have run my own successful resume writing business.

Before I founded Blue Sky Resumes, I led HR functions for a number of different companies and I hired thousands of people, from entry-level to senior executives. During this time, I learned which resumes worked and why.

Once I started my own business, I put what I’d learned into practice, and my clients saw immediate results. Often they’d get calls back from recruiters within minutes of submitting their resume.

But it has taken me a while to put my system into words so that other people can follow. Much of what I do when I write a resume seemed instinctive - it was only over time that I realized there were key principles and strategies that I could teach anyone.

I won't lie - the book was a little painful to write! It's hard to put all your knowledge and trade secrets into words others can easily understand. But I finally got there.

The "Complete Guide to Resume Writing" gives you step-by-step instructions for creating a resume that gets results.

Here's what you'll get when you order the book:
