I’ve been writing résumés 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 RÉSUMÉS. 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!

In 2008, I purchased the first edition of your book, Best Canadian Résumés, which proved to be invaluable and at the same time an eye-opener to the wonderful world of value-based résumé 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!

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

This book is one of my favourite resources; chalk full of excellent résumés from top talent professionals from across Canada. Sharon has done a lovely job putting together a uniquely flavoured Canadian resource that teaches job seekers the art of résumé creation, showcases current résumé trends and formats, and aids professionals in taking their work to the next level. I turn to this book time and again for ideas and inspiration – thank you Sharon!
