Yes, you can! There are tons of résumé writing books out there and we encourage you to buy one or two to keep as a handy reference. However, it’s important to note the publication date so that you know what the current trends are. Sometimes in using these books, people run into problems such as:
You may choose a nice format, but is it suitable for you? How can you still put your own voice on the résumé? What if you have a unique situation that isn’t covered in a book?
Also, these books tend to help those who at least have some knowledge about résumé writing. So, if you’re a complete novice it’s best to go to the professionals and have an in-person consultation.
