Real-Resumes for Computer Jobs (Real-Resumes Series)

Buy
Every resume and cover letter in this book actually worked. And most of the resumes and cover letters have common features: all are one-page, all are in the chronological format, and all resumes are accompanied by a companion cover letter. The book is divided into three parts. Part One provides some advice about job hunting. Step One begins with a discussion of why employers prefer the one-page, chronological resume. In Step Two you are introduced to the direct approach and to the proper format for a cover letter. In Step Three you learn the 14 main reasons why job hunters are not offered the jobs they want, and you learn the six key areas employers focus on when they interview you. Step Four gives nuts-and-bolts advice on how to handle the interview, send a follow-up letter after an interview, and negotiate your salary. At the end of Part One, you’ll find advice about how to research and locate the companies and organizations to which you want to send your resume.

Since the cover letter plays such a critical role in a career change, Part Two of the book is entitled Cover Letters for Computer Jobs. You will learn from the experts how to format your cover letters and you will see suggested language to use in marketing your computer training, knowledge, or experience. It has been said that “A picture is worth a thousand words” and, for that reason, you will see numerous examples of effective cover letters used by real individuals to find their first job in the computer field, change industries, or assume new kinds of responsibilities within the field. Part Two ends with answers to the 16 most commonly asked questions about cover letters and job hunting, and the answers are provided in the form of actual cover letters.

Parts One and Two lead up to the most important part of the book, which is Real- Resumes for Computer Jobs—Part Three. In this section you will see people in varying stages of change. Some of the individuals whose resumes and cover letters you see wanted to change the product, company, or service they were selling, managing, or representing. As Part Three evolves, you discover resumes and cover letters used by people who wanted to find a completely different type of work to do. Then there are resumes and cover letters of people who wanted a change but who probably wanted to remain in their industry. Many of you will be especially interested by the resumes and cover letters of individuals who knew they definitely wanted a career change but had no idea what they wanted to do next. Other resumes and cover letters show individuals who knew they wanted to change fields and had a pretty good idea of what they wanted to do next. Part Three ends with resumes and cover letters of folks who moved from selfemployment, usually in small companies, to something totally different.

Whatever your background or training, you’ll find resumes and cover letters that will “show you the ropes” in job hunting. Bear in mind that you can learn a lot from any of the resumes in this book. For example, if you are already a part of the computer industry, you will find many resumes used by individuals to advance in the industry. If you are seeking your first job in the computer field, you will find numerous examples of resumes and cover letters used to launch careers.
