Good compilation of resumes
The Adams Resume Almanac is a pretty decent compilation of resumes and cover letters. But it is only a compilation. This book, as the cover states, has over 600 resumes and 50 cover letters. If you already know how to write a resume and cover letter and you are just looking for ideas or situations that may apply to your current situation, you may be able to get ideas from the work of others. However, there is no exhaustive review of resume writing strategies as mentioned in the synopsis. Approximately 5 pages of this book are spent on writing your resume. The remainder of the book contains numerous examples of other peoples resumes. I do like this book. However, I would not recommend it as your sole book on resumes and cover letters. It is mainly a good companion book.
High Impact Resumes and Letters, by Ronald L. Krannich and Winning Cover Letters, by Robin Ryan, are two books that I would highly recommend. The former is an in depth book on the entire job search process. And the latter is an excellent book concentrating on various letters, cover letters in general. These two books, in conjunction with The Adams Resume Almanac, will definitely assist you in writing a powerful resume and cover letter that will be noticed by employers.
