Minimal job experience? No problem!

You've just graduated and are ready to land your first real job after college or high school. But how do you write the first résumé and cover letter of your career if you don't have any previous jobs to list? How do you stand out above the other applicants--including people with more experience who are out of work--with your summer job at the diner, internship at the local paper, or spot on the Ultimate Frisbee team?

Dr. Q to the rescue! For two decades, communication professor Quentin Schultze has been teaching résumé-writing to college students and recent graduates, helping them identify their strengths and transferable skills from their unique life experiences--from extracurriculars to part-time jobs to internships to volunteering. With Résumé 101, you'll discover the secrets to composing strong, impressive resumes and cover letters, such as:

What to include when you lack professional experience

How to get great references and recommendations

Why to use a summary rather than objective statement

When to include hobbies, travel, and technology skills

What to do if your GPA isn't sky-high

Which designs and basic formats work the best

Where to find the perfect verbs and adjectives for a specific job

With Dr. Q's help, you'll soon have a résumé and cover letter that will show hiring managers who you really are, why you're prefect for your dream job, and why they should choose you.
