    1. When looking at so many resumes, one tends to be cynical. If there’s no GPA, then it must be bad. If she sold tickets, I’m assuming it’s two tickets. If the point is vague, it must be worthless.Here’s what to include in the education section: • School name and location • Graduation month and year • Degree • Major/Minor/Concentration/Emphasis • Dean’s list/Academic honors, awards, or scholarships • GPA • Foreign study Education University of Central Michigan - Mt. Pleasant [...]

    2. Excellent advice, very insightful for a student close to graduation. I will see how what I have learned can really be applied to today's application procedures and update my rating, but for now, the sheer number of "why did I not think of that"-moments has left a very positive impressionCan highly recommend!

    3. This was super helpful and I'm looking at buying a copy myself just for reference. Great info from a professional that lays down the truth on resumes and interviewing. Put a few post its on most important sections, looking forward to updating my resume with this info.

    4. Narrow in scope, because heavily targeted at college students. But within that scope, this deals with all the basics very quickly, and with a sense of humor. The ridiculously long list of sample resumes at the end is a terrific resource.

    5. This might be the best book for university students contemplating their career directions. Brad is also an excellent speaker for college audiences.
