April 4, 2010 - PRLog -- Former CEO of the Boston Options Exchange and Managing Director at Goldman Sachs R. Scott Morris announced the release of his new book, Polished: Adding Shine to your Resume, Cover letter and Interview skills on his hiring help website PolishedU (

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.

The book offers an interesting insider's take on the hiring process and job hunt, as the author shows how he made decisions on the recruiting of candidates. Inside, readers get a unique glance on what they can do to get jobs, as well as what types of mistakes are commonly made. Since college students in particular tend to present relatively homogeneous applications because of their similar backgrounds, Polished takes great care to show students and young job seekers what to do to stand out from the crowd and get hired.

Although the author worked for Wall St. firms such as Goldman Sachs (to learn more about the author, visit ), the book aims to help all types of job seekers, especially those on main street, to find jobs and learn what it takes to perfect resumes, cover letters and interviews. R. Scott Morris takes the perspective that the reason he did not consider applicants was that they made mistakes that got themselves discredited, rather then not possessing the required skills and prerequisites.

Dubbed the principle of "risk minimization" R. Scott Morris goes on in Polished to teach college students and other job seekers how to avoid the risks in their cover letters and resumes which prevent them from advancing to the interview. When the author hired on Wall St., how one handles his or herself during the interview plays a significant role in hiring and firing, right next to what he or she has necessarily done.

Polished should be a refreshing helping hand for college students concerned about careers during and after the recession. To learn more, visit .
