Product Description:
In this 2019 updated edition to the Amazon bestseller, the author of America's largest career advice newsletter shares best practices and expert advice for writing a great resume, without the drama or agony, in a quick 90 minute read.


Based on 15+ years experience, with millions of resumes, from the leader in $100K- $500K careers, Ladders 2019 Resume Guide provides easy and effective advice for fast-rising and mid-career professionals. In about 90 minutes, Cenedella shares the best insights and hand-picked advice from his decades-long experience. 

Here's what you'll learn in Ladders 2019 Resume Guide:

The four gatekeepers who can block your resume from success. Cenedella walks you through the four critical gatekeepers that you need to please with your effective resume. Each of these audiences is looking for something different, and his expert insight into the nuances makes it easy for you to master these tricky subtleties.

How to avoid resume writing anxiety. Most of us don't write resumes for a living, but we need a resume to make a living. That creates unneeded anxiety for you. A resume can be so important to your career success, and yet, you likely have very limited personal experience in writing resumes. This lack of understanding about how resumes work -- what makes one effective and another a flop -- causes resume anxiety. Cenedella dispatches common misconceptions that cause you to worry too much, and highlights for you the tricky areas that you do need to watch out for.

The right way to craft a resume that will make you successful. Cenedella shares the principles behind making a successful resume. How and why successful resumes work, and pitfalls to avoid where you unintentionally shoot yourself in the foot. By teaching you the simple rules behind what makes resumes successful, Cenedella prepares you to craft your own professional resume.

Specific, step-by-step, line-by-line instructions for the fast-rising and mid-career professional. As a busy, successful professional looking to get ahead, you're just looking for the right answers as to how to get your resume done. Cenedella boils it all down to the simple line-by-line, and sometimes word-by-word, formula to make a winning resume. 

Ladders 2019 Resume Guide presents an effective, tested, data-driven, easy-to-follow, easy-to-understand, expert guide to writing your resume right now.

Product Description:
Learn the tested and proven resume writing formula that’s landed jobs at Google, Salesforce, LinkedIn, and other world-class companies!

Picture a scenario: You’re sitting at your kitchen table scrolling through job listings when you see one that catches your eye. As you read through the job description, your excitement builds as you realize that the job is a perfect fit! Not wasting another second, you fill out the application, attach your resume, and hold your breath as you hit “Apply.”

Then you wait. And wait. And wait some more. Weeks go by without hearing so much as a peep, and before long you’ve given up hope on what seemed like a match made in heaven.

Sound familiar? You’re not alone! On average there are 250 resumes submitted for every job opening, which means that 99.6% of applicants will fail to land the jobs they apply for.

To get the job you want, you don’t just need a great resume--you need an outstanding resume, one that puts you in the top 1% of candidates for the job. That means ditching the same old advice you’ve been following with little results and adopting a tried-and-true process for getting your resume noticed in even the most competitive situations.

In this book, Dan Clay breaks down the exact method he’s carefully developed over a period of ten years and provides a precise, step-by-step set of instructions for crafting the perfect resume, down to the last period.

Unlike the dime-a-dozen recruiters turned career coaches who have never had to put themselves on the line in today’s brutally competitive job market, Dan offers practical, real-world experience gained from applying for and getting job offers from some of the most prestigious, competitive companies in the world.

And when it comes to something as important as your career, don’t you deserve to learn from someone who’s actually succeeded at doing what you’re hoping to do?

Of course you do! Here are some of the things you’ll learn about how to transform your resume from average to awe-inspiring:

  • How to handle tricky pitfalls like extended time off or unemployment and have your resume come out as strong as ever
  • How to make your accomplishments sound dramatically more impressive without having to tell a single lie
  • How to remove the guesswork about what to include in your resume and build it to the exacting specifications of your target job's requirements
  • How to pass the four tests that companies will put your resume through with flying colors
  • How to strike the perfect composition of content, white space, and page length to accentuate and differentiate your strengths
  • How to avoid the common (and not so common) resume mistakes that leave your resume dead on arrival
  • How to tell a powerful story that demonstrates your capabilities in a way that will knock the socks off anyone reading it
  • How to stand out without resorting to cheap tricks that come off as cheesy or over-the-top


PLUS, you’ll also gain access to a free companion website containing fully editable resume templates, a perfect resume checklist, and other bonus materials to give you everything you need to create a stunning resume that will get you noticed and land you interviews.

Whether you’re a new graduate looking for your first job, a career veteran angling for your next move, a recent victim of a layoff, or someone looking to dip their toes back into the workplace after taking a few years off, this comprehensive guide aims to be the best--and last--resume writing book you’ll ever need for your career.
