Don't Send a Resume and Other Contrarian Rules to Help Land a Great Job
Hyperion, May, 2001.
Hardcover, 172 pages.
Disdaining the traditional advice to polish up your resume and send it to as many companies as you can find, top notch marketer Jeffrey Fox advises job seekers to throw out the old rule book and try some new strategies for landing that dream job. Don't Send a Resume is written in a simple, no-nonsense style which makes for fast reading. The chapters describe such all-important job hunting tips as why you should never just send out resumes blindly, why you should never go through the personnel department, why you should delete your objective from your resume (employers don't care about your objective, only what you can do for them), how to write a letter which will land you an interview, and what to do when you finally do get asked in for the interview (for one thing, never ask for directions!)
Jeffrey Fox, author of How to Become a CEO and How to Become a Rainmaker has created a must-have book for any serious job seeker. The competition for good jobs is fierce, especially when more companies are laying off workers than hiring them. This handy little book could make the difference between landing the job of your dreams and the unemployment line.
