"Simply the best guide I have found over several decades of helping college students who are seeking their first professional jobs."
--Dr. Richard C. Wallace, Gainey School of Business, Spring Arbor University

"This is not your typical job-search book for college students and grads. This is a rock-solid, holistic resource that challenges job seekers to optimize their 'labor assets'--their skills, their knowledge, and their personality/character traits--to land a job quickly no matter what kind of job market."
--Jay Block, executive coach and author, 101 Best Ways to Land a Job in Troubled Times

"Should be required reading for anyone entering the workplace. Having a degree is like having a powerful engine for a car--potential ready for application. Until you have a sleek body and fancy wheels no one will appreciate the engine. Résumé 101 will help any graduating student put wheels on their hard work and preparation."
--Dan Miller, author, 48 Days to the Work You Love

"A step-by-step, easy-to-follow guidebook. Read it and you'll laugh, you'll take notes, and you'll feel the panic of job-searching ebbing away."
--Professor Michael A. Longinow, Biola University

"Schultze astutely recognizes that smart, effective résumé-writing is tied up with how you see yourself, your work, and the world around you, and he offers clear, practical guidance on how to pull it all together on the written page. This book hits home the important notion that every one of us has the right résumé for the right job in us somewhere, and we need only learn how to summon it up and get it down on paper."
--David H. Freedman, contributing editor, Inc. magazine
