Being a college professor, every year I see frightened graduates face the dreaded, daunting job search. Now I can point them to a clear, practical and highly useful resource that's sure to boost their confidence and competence while looking for employment. I don't have time to advise every student about their resume. That's why this book is so important. By providing detailed, clear, and effective advice, this stellar resource can help students themselves make the transition from education to profession. It gives students and graduates everything they need to go job-hunting: well-researched advice, clear suggestions and encouragement. It's even a very readable book, not a boring manual. We should be handing them out to all of our students and family members who are in the job market. -- Kevin Schut, Trinity Western University

Quentin Schultze and Bethany Kim possess a rare combination of book smarts and level-headed, real-world experience. Powerful College Student Résumés & Cover Letters provides a systematic method for any college student, recent graduate - or anyone, really - to craft a personal, engaging and proactive résumé. Backed by entertaining anecdotes, advice from hiring managers and a unique look into the minds of employers, this book will give any job seeker the necessary tools to stand out among a sea of applicants and lackluster, off-the-shelf résumés.

The layout and design of the book provide instant access to pro-tips and great advice. Honestly, I can't think of a single reason not to make this book required reading for all college students.

I found this book to have great advice for college students and for people who are writing resumes again after years in the work force. I am a hiring manager and the advice for what employers are looking for in a job candidate is right on target. The examples of resumes given in Dr. Q's book are realistic and I expecially liked the expert advice and Dr Q's tips features. The masterlist componet was also a great way to organize background material to bring out skills transferable to any job.

Not sure why it singles out college students in the title. This book is really one-stop shopping for anyone putting together a resume; it's career counseling and resume-writing combined in one book. The two aims are separate though, so if you already have your career path figured out, you can also go straight to the nuts and bolts. A solid resource.

Here's what I look for in a résumé: Inventiveness, accuracy, intelligence, breadth of experience, clarity, brevity. Your average résumé class or Microsoft Word template will not teach you how to accomplish such a résumé. Dr. Q will! This brilliant book should be a required class for seniors at every college.
