Book Description
Entering a new field or advancing to better jobs is easier if you know how to communicate effectively in the lingo of the field. This book shows experience such as police officer, dispatcher, fireman, police chief, corrections officer, detective, deputy sheriff, police captain, security guard, personal protection specialist, and many other jobs. Whether you're staying in the field or exiting to other industries, this book can help. A word of advice from Editor Anne McKinney: "If you want to enter or advance in the police and law enforcement or security field, you don't need just any resume book. You need an industry-specific resume book! You will love this book targeted specifically to employment in the police, law enforcement, and security field. Every resume and cover letter we put in a Real-Resumes Series book has been tested and proven in the real job market. Don't play games with your career. Your choice of a resume book is one of the most important career decisions you will ever make." Praise for this book and other books in the Real-Resumes Series: “Distinguished by its highly readable samples." - Library Journal "These excellent new guides don't just provide the usual coverage on how to write a resume. They provide industry-specific examples, industry-specific tips and cautions, and industry-specific strategies based on real-world resumes. Since many technical types aren't writers, this comes as a special gift; select a winning format, plug in your background specs, and away you go. It's that easy--with Real-Resumes in hand."-- The Midwest Book Review “This thoughtful resource should come as a welcome and valuable tool.” –Small Press Testimonials from people who successfully used this book: "After years in law enforcement, I hit a point in my career when I had to compete for a promotion to police captain. I believe the great resume I created using Real-Resumes was what gave me the edge and landed me the job." D. Ramirez "I knew my dispatching experienced was transferable to new fields. But I didn't know how to communicate it until I found the Real-Resumes models." A. Doctorow "I needed a resume versatile enough so that I could explore opportunities in corporations as well as in city and state law enforcement. Real-Resumes showed me how." D. Jones "As a personal protection specialist, my resume has to convey trust instantly. I gleaned many tips from the Real-Resumes samples which helped me develop a door-opening resume." J. Proctor “I was transitioning from military experience into the civilian community, and I felt like I was trying to communicate in a foreign language when I tried to prepare my resume. The samples in this book showed me how to translate military experience into civilian language, and I had many job offers.” S. Tate
