, is the most updated, researched study ever conducted on resumes. Four years of research and over 6,000 management interviews later, we found a "new paradigm" shift happening in companies across the country. This new paradigm deals with a new type of resume, crystalized information, how it's conveyed and presented. What makes this resume style so unique is it capitalizes on one area that most other resume books miss. It will change how people from here forward look at developing their resume.
