At every level today, you need to "lose the resume" in order to land the right job. Rather, you must learn to tell a story about yourself that speaks to your competencies, purpose and passion, and values. This contrary to what most people do: They rely on their resumes, believing that what they’ve done will "speak for itself." But the conventional approach of "polishing up your resume" and sending it out at random is a losing proposition, given that 98 percent of resumes submitted for a job posting fail to result in an interview. The book also includes assessments, questionnaires, and other tools adapted for this audience and the book. These resources will help readers gain deeper perspective on who they are, what they’re passionate about, the cultures in which they fit, the kind of bosses they should work for, and where they can bring the most value to organizations.
