“I realized most people hate writing résumés. Lots of job seekers struggle to write a résumé that showcases how their experience has prepared them for a great new job,” said Scott. In the book, readers learn how to highlight the best parts of their experience and how to describe their most relevant achievements using !@#$%, the Signs of a Great Résumé. While !@#$% might look like curse words in a comic strip, Scott uses !@#$% to teach readers how to make their résumé stand apart from the competition. Each “sign” has a role to play on a great résumé:
! - Any part of your experience that was "amazing!"
@ - Defining points, places, dates and things in your career
# - Numbers that quantify and prove your past successes
$ - The dollar value of your contributions
% - Figures that easily show growth and results
Readers who have used the Signs of a Great Résumé rave about immediate results in their job searches. “The process is simple and effective,” according to Mary, a loan originator in Houston, Texas. “My experience with the Signs of a Great Résumé was great!” Rachel in Los Angeles, California added “The Signs of a Great Résumé helped me land that job I wanted in another state.” Carly, a hospitality industry professional in Clermont, Florida said “Signs of a Great Résumé gave me a competitive edge over those who hadn't read the book.”
