The Damn Good Resume Guide, Fifth Edition

Good guide for resume writing
January 9th, 2015
I read this book from cover to cover and found it to be easy to use. It follows and walks you through the resume and cover letter writing process in a clear and logical progression. Well done. Note to author: Photoshop is not the program associated with PDFs, it's Adobe Acrobat. Please fix that error.
