The Resume Design Book by Matthew T Cross {Book Review}

Review2A resume is what your giving a future employer in order for them to get an idea about who you are in a nutshell. It’s a way for you to convince someone that you’re the best fit for the job. This is a book best bought in physical book form.

Inside, there is a Twelve Minute Resume. There are fun “fill in the blank” type forms, with cute animations. You’ll need a handful of post-it notes to use for your answers. After, you combine all your post-it notes to create a rough draft a fun basic resume that took you less time than most commercial breaks during your favorite tv show!

Each section of your typical resume is broken down, and again the suggest the use of post-it notes to organize your personal information with even more detail. Adding to the first rough draft, you plug in all your pertinent information creating a large organized collage of post it notes. They give you specific instructions to the collection of post it notes.

The include common do’s and don’ts of resume writing, and prepare you to turn your post-it’s into something more professional that you can hand in to any potential job!

When it comes down to typing something up, many people find themselves confused. This breaks it down for anyone to understand. It goes into detail on what your resume should look like with; font, spacing, structure, layout, and even how long it should be. After all, you don’t want a resume so long it bores the reader.

Overall, I think this is a super useful book that anyone can understand! Super simple and specific. The target audience for this book is literally anyone! I give it a 5/5.
