Website Resource: Quintessential Careers

I first bookmarked the Quintessential Careers website about ten years ago, when I first started in the career education field. Throughout the years, this resource has become a go-to website.


This website, located at, offers A LOT of useful career related information through mainly articles and the recent addition of e-books. The website began with college students as its core audience but has now become a great resource for any jobseeker.

My Take

With such breadth and depth of articles packed with useful career related how tos, advice, and features, this website definitely deserves to be checked out. I wouldn’t be surprised if you ended up bookmarking the site. QuintCareers has also been around for quite a while, and there’s something reassuring about a resource that has that track record of not only longevity but of consistently good information.

Though the layout might not be the flashiest, the wealth of great information cannot be overlooked. Besides, I bet that most folks care more about content rather than a website’s design. And it’s just not a lot of content for content’s sake, but a lot of quality content.

So, check out QuintCareers and let us know what you think.

    Thanks so much for your kind words about our site, QuintCareers, but more importantly, for all these years of sharing the site with others who needed it. I just spoke with a former student of mine who does recruiting for her company at college fairs and she told me she writes on the back of her business cards to help those students succeed.

    Our mission is all about empowering job-seekers — from teens to baby boomers and older workers — succeed in finding their ideal career and jobs. As you mentioned, our original focus was college students and recent grads and we still hold them in high regard because of the real need to learn the whole “real world” thing.

    We will NEVER be the flashiest site, but we promise to ALWAYS be the site with the best (and free) content to achieve your dreams — and do so in the most meaningful and practical manner.

    So, please, keep spreading the word about our site… we greatly appreciate it!

    I wish you guys great success with the blog… will be sure to reviewing it and linking to it as you build it.

      Dr. Randall Hansen,

      Thank you very much for the comment. It’s an honor to have your comment serve as the first comment on our blog. QuintCareers is not only a personal favorite but a favorite of so many students to whom we refer for its expert career-related information, and it’s no coincidence that writing about QuintCareers was something that we had to do as one of our first posts.

      Your kind words will inspire us to continue sharing what we know, and continue to learn, about career planning right here on this blog. Now I will go and print out your comment and put it in a frame. 🙂

      Thank you again for your comment.
