"Extraordinary.... A hundred books in one.... This book is a home run." -- From the FOREWORD by Richard N. Bolles, author of the best-selling "What Color Is Your Parachute? A Practical Manual for Job-Hunters and Career-Changers" The ultimate guide for college students and grads seeking interviews in a tough economy. It explains how to: (1) transform even modest educational achievements and non-paying life experiences -- from hobbies and travel to family circumstances and extracurricular activities -- into persuasive statements about abilities, (2) generate job interviews by professionally fine-tuning resumes and cover letters specifically for each application, and (3) prepare successfully for interviews by writing persuasive resumes and cover letters. REVEALS RESUME-WRITING SECRETS: * what to include when you lack paid professional experience * how to get great references even from people you don't know well * why to use a summary statement instead of an objective statement in most fields * when to include hobbies, travel, and technology skills * why you should NOT list most courses already taken * what to do if your GPA is unimpressive * which designs and basic templates work the best * how to determine the perfect verbs and adjectives for a specific job * the 5 things you MUST address in a cover letter SPECIAL FEATURES * an in-depth index so you can find exactly what you need * before-and-after samples of rewritten resumes and cover letters * a helpful flow chart for writing resumes and cover letters * "Dr. Q's Tips" based on actual student and alumni experiences * "Expert Advice" quotations from dozens of publications not online * a categorized list of "action verbs" that appeal to potential employers * sample resumes with accompanying cover letters THE AUTHORS Quentin Schultze, Ph.D. (AKA "Dr. Q"), is a well-published and prize-winning author, a popular speaker, and an award-winning college teacher with over 30 years experience mentoring students and graduates. Bethany Kim is a writer, teacher, and consultant on teaching English to adult learners. ENDORSEMENTS "This superb book explains how students and graduates can demonstrate that they're equipped for a job when they don't have any formal job experience to reference. Wish I had it 20 years ago." -- Gary Van Prooyen, Global Brand Director, Motorola, Inc. "Practical and inspiring. If more of the resumes that come across my desk used this advice, hiring would be a lot easier. The appendices alone are worth the price of the book." -- Kevin Jeffer, Partner, Chief Creative Officer, re:creative "I used to teach resume writing without a textbook because none of them really covered all the essentials. That's over. This book has all the nuts and bolts college-aged job hunters need." -- Professor Kathy Bruner, Taylor University "I am making this book required reading for all my students." -- Professor Kevin T. Jones, Director of Internships, George Fox University "Great for today's fiercely competitive job market!" -- Scott Stegenga, Partner Manager, Yahoo! Search
