The Bomb! On my list to purchase.
Has the before and after. The primer, even how to use Word to get the visual appeal.
When you graduate from High School or College, this should be one of the the books you get besides a family Bible!
What are you waiting for, your job is the best in the world, you don't need to look at this one :-)
I am updating my resume from this one over this next week March 8-17th 2008. Then I will send Susan a copy to provide a free review. I will update my website with it after I complete it so you can review as well.
