I'm new to manager tools, I already reviewed the "your resume stinks" and the 2008 and 2009 update. However, I have a question.
I did a free subcription to the Ladders and I thought it was the best source of information till I found manager tools. Ladders recommends creating a brand name for your self; that is, the stuff on top of your resume.. sort of an executive summary.
I don't understand why this is not cool? according to manager tools.
An example from Ladders:
"Corporate Effectiveness Coach"(big bold font) (under name and address)
"Leveraging the power of executive teamwork to solve difficult business issues"A one liner describing your brand..
This sounds like such a great idea, so why is it discouraged by manager tools?
According to "your resume stinks", they say no one will believe you.
I'm an aspiring manager.
