The perfect rsum, says author Pat Criscito, is the one that fits the personality of its owner, tempered, of course, by the expectations of the industry. Writing and designing both paper and electronic versions of a rsum, and using them to build a brand identity on the Web, are the focus of the new 4th edition of Rsums that Pop!, formerly titled Designing the Perfect Rsum. This book shows job seekers exactly how to create distinctive rsums that reflect the unique personality of their owners--their strengths, their background and training, and their career goals. A Twelve-Step Rsum Writing Guide opens the book, outlining rules for creating the perfect rsum from a rough concept to a finished presentation. Chapters that follow discuss different kinds of rsum, including functional, chronological, executive, the curriculum vitae, and creative rsums. Then, the author shows job-seekers how to create and use electronic versions of their rsum, from e-mailable and scannable rsums to LinkedIn and Facebook profiles. Nowadays, job seekers should expect to be Googled by hiring managers before being called for an interview. This book helps readers manage their online reputations using blogs and e-folios at their own personal Web sites. Nearly 200 sample rsums included in this book can be adapted and personalized to fit the needs of each reader.
