Writing Resumes for McCain and Obama

File this under the category of "wish I'd thought of this." The Ladders, a job portal for $100,000+ candidates, asked resume writer extraordinaire (and, incidentally, one of my authors) Wendy Enelow to write resumes for John McCain and Barack Obama (see the story here). The results are stunning. Check them out. Regardless of your political leanings, aren't you in awe of both of them? That's what a great resume does: It distills the most impressive highlights of your career and makes the reader say "Hey, I want to hire this guy."

Kudos to The Ladders for coming up with an irresistible tie-in with the all-consuming election coverage. It landed them--and Wendy--a story on ABCNews.com.
