Fill-in-the-Blank Resume Workbooks by Yana Parker

Created by the late Yana Parker, author of The Damn Good Resume Guide, these fill-in-the-blank workbooks are especially appreciated by job seekers with little or no experience and those with difficult or confusing work histories. The probing questions and fill-in-the-blank format are especially useful for job seekers who need help figuring out what to say on their resumes.


The four workbooks are:

1. Resume Workbook for Adults Entering the Workforce

Great for adults with less-than-perfect work histories


2. Resume Workbook for Job Hunters in Career Transition

Excellent for laid-off workers and career changers


3. Resume Workbook for High School Students

Specially for young adults with minimal work experience


4. Resume Workbook for College Students and Recent Grads

Created for college graduates with little work experience



Individual job seekers: We use the honor system. If you can't afford to pay for the workbook you need, go ahead and download it for free. For those who CAN afford to pay, please see the list of prices and payment methods listed at


Organizations: Workbooks are available as downloadable PDFs with reprint rights for a modest fee.
