Land Your Dream Job: Join the 2% Who Make it Past Résumé Screening (Second Edition)


Loved it! 😍

Looking for your dream job? Make sure your resume makes it past the screening process with the tips in this book!

I never realized that it is only statistically 2% of people who get their resume past the screening process. I haven't paid much thought to my resume in a while, but as I finish up my Masters Degree, it's time to start looking for that dream job.

This book really breaks down exactly what you need to do not only with your resume but with cover letters to make sure that it has all the content that those who are doing the hiring are looking for. I had never heard of the "Job Scorecard" so I appreciated the book bringing this to my attention.

This book is a super short quick read, but it definitely let me thinking and motivated to revisit my resume and while it wasn't explicitly mentioned in this book - I finally made the leap to start an online resume as well. Here's hoping that within the next year or so I will land my dream job!

If you're also looking to make that leap into new and rewarding with your dream job, be sure to check out this book first to make sure that you are fully prepared for the resume and interview process!
