Blue Sky Resumes

Blue Sky Guide toResume Writing

By Louise Fletcher
Book Cover

Imagine a manager at your dream company opening your resume, instantly seeing your value and calling you on the spot. Does that happen to you?

Chances are the answer is no.

It's not the manager's fault or the economy or the amount of competition. Honestly... it's your resume. Most likely, it simply doesn't show the difference you would make. And that means it doesn't stand out or inspire hiring managers to meet you.

Can a resume really do all that? Absolutely. In fact, simple language and formatting refinements can improve your response rate by as much as 50%. Based on over 20 years of real world hiring experience, this guide will show you — step-by-step, example by example — exactly how to do that.
