Author Scott Vedderabout this book: I wrote this book because I realized most people hate writing résumés- and they're not very good at it! I also realized that most books about résumés are simply dreadful. They're hundreds of pages long and they really don't help you understand how to explain why you're a great candidate for a job. My book is different. It's funny, simple and effective.

"Your résumé should be full of ! @#$%." That's how Central Florida author Scott Vedder describes how to write a résumé that speaks for itself in his new book, Signs of a Great Résumé. As a recruiter at a Fortune 100 company, Scott conducted over 5,000 interviews and knows what recruiters really want to see on a résumé. Scott tells those secrets in this humorous and highly effective book and now everyone can benefit in this job market. The book has become a best seller on the "Hot New Releases" list at Amazon.com. It's also available on BarnesandNoble.com, TextbooksRUs.com and other fine retailers. For a free preview of the book visit www.ScottVedder.com.

"I realized most people hate writing résumés. Lots of job seekers struggle to write a résumé that showcases how their experience has prepared them for a great new job," said Scott. In the book, readers learn how to highlight the best parts of their experience and how to describe their most relevant achievements using ! @#$%, the Signs of a Great Résumé. While ! @#$% might look like curse words in a comic strip, Scott uses ! @#$% to teach readers how to make their résumé stand apart from the competition. Each "sign" has a role to play on a great résumé:

! - Any part of your experience that was "amazing!"
@ - Defining points, places, dates and things in your career
# - Numbers that quantify and prove your past successes
$ - The dollar value of your contributions
% - Figures that easily show growth and results

Readers who have used the Signs of a Great Résumé rave about immediate results in their job searches. "The process is simple and effective," according to Mary, a loan originator in Houston, Texas. "My experience with the Signs of a Great Résumé was great! " Rachel in Los Angeles, California added "The Signs of a Great Résumé helped me land that job I wanted in another state." Carly, a hospitality industry professional in Clermont, Florida said "Signs of a Great Résumé gave me a competitive edge over those who hadn't read the book."

Scott also shares his expertise live and in-person by delivering résumé coaching presentations to educational groups, career-minded professional associations and many other organizations. Scott's speaking engagements include seminars, workshops, career chats, job fairs and more.
