  • I get more interviews using the resumes from this book. I have purchased the latest editions and in more professions. I highly recommend this book.

  • If you need creative ideas for making your resume stand out aesthetically and from a content perspective Wendy Enelow's books are a must own. She showcases over 80 -100 completed resumes with the strategy for each listed below. I own all of her resume books and it was a great investment.

  • I found this to be more useful than other resume books because it was current AND was geared towards our industry. The reference samples and layout ideas gave me the "jump start" I needed.

  • Although this book says in the beginning that it doesn't matter what kind of technology professional you are, including fresh college graduate, it does not have much samples, if any, for the same. It was much of a disappointment on spending on this book.

  • For someone in just about any other field, the overall content might be useful. For computer professionals, the 2011 third edition STILL needs an update.

    Most notably, the content needs to be tailored to IT professionals. For example, in the past 10 years that I've been in the IT field (and it's actually been longer), I'm NEVER asked for a paper/printed hard copy. I may bring extras to an interview, but I'm never, ever asked for hard copies anymore. So I have to ask if any of the material on this topic is even necessary. (And trust me: if you're applying at a company that still expects a hard copy - or asks you to fax it - you don't want to work there. Clearly their technology is all legacy, and old legacy at that. That's not going to help your career at all.)

    Social media gets little more than a passing nod (a mention of LinkedIn among the various job boards listed). Not one resume example includes a LinkedIn URL or Twitter handle. And I've had several recruiters and online forms ask about my LinkedIn profile, so it can be a very important detail among one's contact info.

    There's also some chapters on the cover letter, but the authors never discuss whether cover letters are even necessary any more. (Many hiring professionals and recruiters are increasingly saying they aren't.) That controversy at least deserves a mention. And except for one example, they're all designed as old-school hard copies. Only one is formatted as an email, and quite frankly, there's many approaches to an email format, like including the job title being applied for, and whether to add a closing or a signature. It seems like these chapters should have emphasized the email format over hard copy instead of the other way around.

    The example resumes are a bit bloated and wordy, and some include logos which are cute but often irrelevant. Most examples also rely on numbers quite a bit, but not all computer roles (like those of a BA) can be measured in hard numbers.

    The book treats computer professionals like any other profession and for job searches, that's a mistake. Unlike other professions, computer professionals are more likely to encounter browser-based, email, or other electronic means of resume submission before other professions do, so many of the old-school methods no longer apply.

    There are some ideas in the early chapters I thought were useful, like grouping types of information or the actual writing. But that was less than half the book, hence two stars. In general, it felt like if I'd gotten this book about any other profession, I'd have gotten the same content with a few changes. I was expecting a book tailored to the particular needs of IT/computer professionals and certainly an updated edition that had more relevant content, and in those expectations, I was deeply disappointed.

  • I was initially put off by the title of this book, as people who use the term "computer jobs" generally know nothing about IT. After flipping though it, though, the old adage about not judging a book by its cover proved to be true. This is a fantastic tool for current and prospective technical professionals looking to add a bit of polish to their resume.

    Part one of the book contains the conventional wisdom on resume writing, but the authors (both certified professional resume writers) also offer tips and tricks that break with tradition to help get you noticed by hiring managers. Although brief, this section answered questions that hours of web research left unanswered, which is what motivated me to buy the book.

    Part two is an extensive gallery of sample resumes broken up by job type - developer, admin, project manager, and so on - which each have a small caption highlighting the benefits of its approach. I thought my resume looked pretty good until I saw some of these samples... so much for the trusty Word template!

    Part three is a step-by-step guide to writing cover letters. Nothing groundbreaking, but still good.

    To sum up, IT job-seekers looking to refine their resumes could greatly benefit from this book. Anyone starting from scratch should probably use a more general text (such as Resume Magic) to produce their first draft, using this book for final revisions. Finally, those happy with their present positions might want to consider waiting for the Third Edition to be published next year.

  • While I wouldn't say every resume in this book is top-notch, there are many of them that are quite well done. Two in my specific area of expertise gave me the "boost" to make my own resume look much better. I would say this book is definitely worth it if you find your resume not getting the response you had hoped for even though your skills are up-to-date.

    There's also quite a lot of writing on how to position yourself better on your resume and in your cover letter. While a lot of this information is available on the Internet (and a few of the resources are outdated), it is handy to have it all together in this package as a "reinforcement."

    Overall, worth a pickup if you feel stuck in your job hunt.

  • If you haven't updated your resume in awhile this text offers a number of updated formats and ideas. It includes excellent common sense check lists and strategies. The key to this book is that it emphasizes that you are selling yourself in your cover letter and resume and offers clear ways to do so. Overall I found it easy to read and implement.
