More Praise for The Elements of Résumé Style

[Absolutely outstanding. A marvelous piece of work. This book delivers what it says it will and then some. No job seeker or career changer should be without it.]

—JOHN J. KENNEDY, ED.D., CAREER DEVELOPMENT CONSULTANT

[Scott has managed the near-impossible—covering the subject from AA to ZZ. For the serious résumé writer, the sections [Request for Salary Requirements] and [Marketing to Yourself] alone are worth fifty times the cost of this tightly written manual.]

—HERSCHELL GORDON LEWIS,
DIRECT RESPONSE WRITER/CONSULTANT/LECTURER, AND AUTHOR OF

DOZENS OF CLASSIC BOOKS ON COPY WRITING AND ADVERTISING

[Scott Bennett presents the art and science of résumé and cover letter writing in a clear, comprehensive package that will serve as a useful tool for employment seekers. I recommend his guide to all seekers and outplacement professionals.]

—BARRY NEWMARK, DIRECTOR OF HUMAN RESOURCES,
BROOKLYN BUREAU OF COMMUNITY SERVICE

[It's rare to find professional wisdom and practical sense in the same book. Scott Bennett delivers both. As someone with years of experience in helping both students jump start their careers and executives choose the right applicant, I know his words can make a genuine difference at whatever step of the career ladder to which you're hoping to move.]

—DR. STEVE BURGHARDT, PROFESSOR, ORGANIZATION & PLANNING,
HUNTER COLLEGE SCHOOL OF SOCIAL WORK; AND VICE-PRESIDENT, RESEARCH &
ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT, LEADERSHIP TRANSFORMATION GROUP, LLC
