The “Advisor’s Toolbox” will add huge value and help you to be a more effective advisor by providing you with powerful, relevant resources such as job-winning resume samples and templates tailored for each of the popular online resume systems in use today.

All of this great information is presented in CPG’s five check point format, making it easier to read and interpret as each section builds on the last.
