Write to Influence – Carla Bass

Tips from the book

The first step in “word sculpting”

Do a gut dump onto a blank page.  Don’t worry about perfection, just write.  When complete, you essentially have you equivalent to the sculptor’s block of marble.  (5)

Making your resume stand out:

Don’t write a resume that sounds like a job description, detailing elements of the job or required skills; instead, tell what you actually did. (121)

Writing effective emails:

Consider this format or something similar:

  1. Issue
  2. Action and due date
  3. Background

(133)
