    Hi Sharon,

    Will you advise a job seeker in the HR and Administration environment currently but in another country, that he / or she would gain valuable info by obtaining the eGuide?


    • This eGuide is for Career Professionals (resume writers and employment consultants) so it’s not appropriate for job seekers. I would recommend the Best Canadian Resumes Paperback series. The new editions are due out before the end of this year.

  4. Does this book talk about the Online tracking systems?
