I enjoyed that this audio was brief and to the point. This audio fit my limited times schedule perfectly.
Artie mentioned writing to him to obtain sample resumes and the STAR sheets. I emailed him and in less than an hour he wrote back with the samples he promised he would send. What a joy and an honor that the author would personally respond back. I was very impressed!
How to conduct oneself during the interview and having the STAR worksheet completed before of the interview. I think preparation ahead of time will be key for any successful interview.
Yes, it was a book that I wanted to listen to all in one sitting. I have also heard it again several times to enforce what Artie shares.
Thanks Arite for the useful tips!! It was great meeting you. ;)
Absolutely. Very concise and an easy method to follow.
The STAR approach and preparation tips could not be beat. Also, the author Artie, is so open and available to give you help and advice. What a breath of fresh air in what could normally be an unpleasant stressful endevour.
A must read for anyone ready to career hunt
Every time I have looked up how to wright a resume it’s been contradicting ideas of what is the “right way” to do that. This book explains why and what you need and how to make your resume stand out.
This book made me rethink the whole proses of how to prepare my resume and preparing for interviews.
this is the first book I have ever read or listened to where the author invites you to email him I did and he responded to both my email the day I sent them and responded with helpful tips a worksheet and sample resumes. and look at the price isn't it worth it if it gives you that one tip that gets you the job.
