carefully and used properly, become natural and powerful techniques by
which to express ones self.

appropriate actions to take and phrases to use. It is not the intent of the book
to "prop you up" to sound like something you are not. Instead, it is to help you

to nuts" kind of book and takes you from the point of initial contact with the
hiring authority, through interviewing, and on to closing the deal.

Beyond the Resume offers advice on all phases of a job search, including:

• Developing a resume;
• Writing letters;
• Networking;
• Cold-calling companies and recruiters;
• Leaving voice mail;
• Managing the interview;
• Responding to trick and non-relevant questions;
• And post interview correspondence;

You will be armed with powerful and provoking phrases which catch the
listener’s or reader’s interest and enable you to follow up with meaningful
information, rather than just being glib or using buzz-words.

Each chapter covers a different scenario or set of circumstances in which
using the right phrases will pay off for you. Rational will be discussed, dos
and don’ts highlighted, and advice given on how to construct and use the
phrases.
