Product Description:

What’s the secret to writing a resume that generates phone calls and interviews--over and over again?

While all good resumes have some basic commonalities (reverse chronological order, a clean appearance, error-free, and complete information), job-getting resumes have something extra:

They grab attention (and interviews) by acting as a marketing brochure for the job seeker.

It’s not hard to turn your resume into a marketing brochure. You don’t need an expensive resume writer, either. But there is a proven technique and path to follow.

The Extreme Resume Makeover Kit guides you the process of creating a killer resume that represents you strongly as a candidate and sells you as the solution, or the “product,” the hiring manager needs. As a bonus, you can have your completed resume within an hour.

  • Create a resume that highlights your fit for the job with a fill-in-the-blanks template
  • Turn your objective statement into a “headline” that captures attention and interest
  • Find out the 3 critical questions your employment history must answer
  • Set your resume up to consistently rise to the top of the list in database searches
  • Learn how to use the rest of your resume (education, professional accomplishments, organizations) to boost your candidacy
  • Avoid the mistakes everyone makes when they send their resume electronically

    Hi Peggy

    Thanks for the valuable information in the Extreme Makeover Kit. My resume looks more clear and tells in powerful language exactly what the hiring manager needs to know. The proof is I applied 3 times this week and got 3 invitations for an interview.

    Kind regards

    Els

    I am in the process of a job transition and decided to invest in the Extreme Resume Makeover Kit. I found the material extremely well presented, systematic, thorough, practical and above all polished. Because the material is both auditory and visual, I found it very easy to relate to and learn from. The support and customer service offered by both Peggy and her staff is impressive and is indicative of her passion to offer real value and service to those who are job seeking. Peggy answered my specific questions about my resume over the phone and went above and beyond by helping me shape my story so that my skills and experience are showcased as effectively possible. I highly recommend this program and I look forward to where this job search process will take me now that I am feeling equipped and empowered to approach it effectively. Thank you Peggy!

    Pam, Houston

    This has been by far one of the best investments that I've made for myself in years. As an Army wife, mother of 3 and stay at home professional, life had gotten really out of place for me because I needed help getting back in the industry. Any woman that has stayed out of work for any period of time knows the level of difficulty in re-entering the job market. Not only is the market hard, but the economy is so bad in smaller towns that people are trying to hold on to the jobs that they currently have.

    As a result of my purchase of the Extreme Resume Makeover Kit, I have a personal coach helping me to my success. I believe in this product, and I will continue being a loyal customer because I've received a phone interview as a result.

    Thanks again for renewing my hope in life!

    It is very rare, in the UK especially, to find the level of help and expertise that is necessary not just to help you find a job but to find the CAREER that fulfills both your short and long term goals/ objectives.

    Living up to the stereotype of the "skeptical Brit'" I found both the level of customer service and the breadth of information, and variety of media formats it is available, eradicated any doubts I initially had. With Career Confidential, and the range of services it provides, I finally have the information and insight I need to bypass the sea of questionable recruitment consultants and proactively identify, reach out to and efficiently present myself in front of the hiring managers within the organisations I truly want to work for.

    Many thanks to Peggy and the CC team for their great work

    I am a job developer for a non-profit organization in the suburbs of Toronto, Ontario and I found your videos on youtube while preparing for my job interview here a year ago. I was so impressed with all of the information and it helped me greatly in knocking their socks off at the interview and landing the job! (I used your aggressive 'So, our discussion has reinforced my feeling that I possess the qualities that you are looking for and I see that I could make good contributions to your team. I am prepared to move forward. (silence)'...you should have seen the looks on their faces!) Since then, I have purchased your total resume makeover and routinely share the information with my team and with the people that we assist. I am an avid follower of your updates - albeit a little behind, what with summer vacations and all! :) I am writing from my personal account because, God forbid I should leave my job here, I would not want to lose any of the information that I have preciously saved since I have become a 'disciple of Peggy'!

    I completed your extreme resume makeover and within the first week was called to interview at a company for four different positions. My interviews are next week and I have completed my 30-60-90 day plan and will be watching your In Person Interview video before my interviews. Thank you for putting together such a valuable program. I will let you know if I get one of the jobs.

    I have completed my resume makeover - the end results I am still waiting to reap, but I do feel the information is valuable and the videos/MP3 files do help to keep you motivated in a time where self doubt can possibly sink in.

    I have had some technical issues downloading files and getting the cloud files to initiate, but the support team has been very helpful and quick to respond to the problem.

    As I wrote in the general comments page, I was very pleased with the resume writing package. It did help me, or better, reassured me that what I was doing with my resume was fine. As I already mentioned, I have a problem about quantifying my achievements because I'm missing statistical information, but that is not related with the quality of the product. The product was easy to use and did appreciate the review on my resume. The staff of Career Confidential are very helpful too.

    Dear Peggy,

    Thank you for all your help with job searching techniques. It helped me reflect on my past mistakes in applying for positions, assess the causes and develop a new approach.

    I think I have enough information to what I intended and needed to know for that purpose and again your information and coaching had been invaluable.

    Kind Regards,
    Wehbe

    One aspect of the Extreme Resume Makeover Kit that no one's really provided feedback on, is that Peggy provides a special dedicated e-mail address for you to send in your revisions for he to assess against a template she them provides you to qualify where you need to strengthen your document. It's very insightful and even if she gives you high marks which I thankfully received, is a great nice-to-have because all her action items she cites as imperative to presenting your work history is on that template. I've purchased a number of podcasts, the 30/60/90 Plan and this kit. They've all been worth it.

    The Extreme Resume Makeover Kit was very informative and helpful. I rewrote my resume and submitted it for review. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a phone call from Peggy McKee herself the next day! She gave me excellent advise and positive feedback on my resume....I didn't have to change a thing. I am very satisfied with this kit and all the added bonuses that come with it.

    Thank you so much Peggy McKee.

    Succinct, logical and proactive approach to resumes as part of the job search process. Peggy's feedback was honest and straightforward. While I cannot predict the results of this program yet as I am still in job search mode, I can safely recommend the product, especially coming from someone who reviews thousands of similar documents.
