“Canadian resume book a first of its kind – Like many other job seekers, you’ve likely picked up a book or searched online for resume samples — trying to remember, of course, to change American spellings to Canadian. Finally, there’s a resource that’s distinctively our own: Best Canadian Resumes, a book that illustrates that our resumes are distinguished by much more than just spelling.”

Linda White, Special to Sun Media


“In 2008, I purchased the first edition of your book, Best Canadian Resumes, which proved to be invaluable and at the same time an eye-opener to the wonderful world of value-based resume writing … I did in fact purchase the latest edition and am grateful for doing so – it is excellent! I thoroughly enjoyed using the 1st Edition and found it an absolute necessity during my job search 2.5 years ago and share the same sentiment toward the latest edition. The job market is always changing (as you know very well!) and it seemed only logical to seek the most up-to-date information … Thank you again!”

Andrea I, Job Seeker


“I’ve been writing resumes for more than a decade and have accessed many tools, templates and the like for added value for my clients. I have never found a resource that has become so valuable as BEST CANADIAN RESUMES. It is my new go-to ‘bible’ for the answers to the most challenging documents, with the results that have brought increased praise and a growing client list. Thank you, Sharon, for your diligence and sharing. I can’t wait for the 3rd Edition to arrive!

    Hi Sharon,

    As we need to wait for the new release only due in Dec 2019, would the previous edition still be valuable and applicable?

    If so, how can be get hold of a soft copy of the previous edition.
