Quentin Schultze

Hi, gang! I’m Quentin Schultze (AKA “Dr. Q”), your personal résumé guru, here to help you college students and graduates write résumés and cover letters that really generate interviews and land jobs. My book, Résumé 101: A Student and Recent-Grad Guide to Crafting Résumés and Cover Letters that Land Jobs, provides the most effective tips available.

Over 100 endorsements from leading professionals and professors demonstrate that my book is by far the leader. Over half of the topics listed in my book’s index are missing in other books and websites (you can see the index in the “Look Inside” feature on Amazon). Here’s a brief description of some of the great job-getting tips explained in my book:


  • what to include when you lack paid professional experience
  • how to get great references even from people you don’t know well
  • why and how to use a summary instead of an objective statement on your résumé
  • when to include hobbies, travel, and technology skills on your résumé or cover letter
  • why you should NOT list on your résumé most college courses you’ve 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


  • an in-depth index so you can find exactly what you need
  • before-and-after samples of résumés
  • a helpful flow chart for writing résumés and cover letters
  • “Dr. Q’s Tips” based on hundreds of actual students’ and college graduates’ experiences
  • “Expert Advice” columns about résumé writing from dozens of publications not available online
  • a categorized list of “action verbs” that appeal to potential employers
  • sample résumé with cover letters—so you can see how they work together

This is the top book on résumés for college students, graduates, dropouts, and underemployed folks. Please give a copy to someone you know who really needs help. The publisher, Ten Speed / Random House, and I have kept the price down to serve as many people as we can with this book. These résumé and cover-letter tips really work well. Read more at Amazon.
