HASH(0x933026c0) out of 5 stars Extremely practical, very readable: a must for job-searchers 12 Aug. 2010
By Kevin P Schut - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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

HASH(0x9387be1c) out of 5 stars A Solid Leg Up for Your Job Search 12 Aug. 2010
By Kelly L. Planer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

HASH(0x93302384) out of 5 stars Pinpointing what employers need 2 Sept. 2010
By DanaK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.
