"College to the Career You Love is a must read for every college student beginning their journey to find an internship or job. I have met so many people that would have benefited from reading this book and gaining the insight it provides before starting their career searching. I believe that students especially in their freshman and sophomore years need to read this book to fully understand the depth of career searching. I myself have loaned this book off to a couple of my friends at different schools who were beginning the process and who were so grateful I let them borrow the book. They kept saying there were many things that they would not have been prepared for if it weren't for the book. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to people if they do not know much about the process of career searching or want to brush up on some things. It even includes personal stories from Mr. Buckley so that every type of person can connect to it at a deeper level. This book is a must read for college students."

“College to the Career You Love was a text that introduced to me to the major keys of competing in the entry level job market. As a young undergraduate student experiencing the interview process, I can confirm that the book had an instant impact of my interview performances. The personal anecdotes, analogies, and step- by-step directions are exactly what a student needs to be exposed to before beginning their career development. This was a fantastic book and had an immediate and strong impact on my personal interviewing skills and strategies!”
