Former Wall St. Recruiter Writes Book on Hiring Process
University of Chicago lecturer and former Wall St. recruiter R. Scott Morris writes Polished: Adding Shine to Your Resume, Cover Letter, and Interview Skills, a how-to guide on navigating the recruiting process.
Aimed at college students and first-time job seekers, as well as those transitioning to a job or career in which they have little experience during the current recession/financial crisis, Polished represents a recruiter's take on the hiring process. The book is written from the author's unique perspective as an executive who made hiring decisions on thousands of resumes, cover letters, and interviews during his tenure on Wall St.
