TheLadders has published a book, “You’re Better Than Your Job Search,” that reprints quite a few of the resume articles I’ve written for them over the past few years. Unfortunately, they stripped my byline from my stories, but if you pick up the book, the “Your Resume” section reprints some of the invaluable input I’ve gotten from HR pros, resume/career coaches and job seekers. Seeing it all tied into a collection like this makes me want to put out a HUGE thank-you to HARO and to all the professionals who always take the time to share their expertise and wonderful experience. So thank you! Hugely!
