Your Résumé and Application Letter
This week, you are tasked to write your Résumé and an Application Letter targeted toward a position of your choice where your skills, education and work experience would be relevant. This resume may or may not be relevant to your mock business. The goal here is to create a resume that will showcase your talents and be useful outside of this class.
Writing a quality résumé and accompanying application letter is a process of self-reflection and self-promotion. You need to accurately represent yourself, celebrate your accomplishments, and demonstrate your abilities and experience, but you do not want to oversell yourself.
This assignment has two parts:
Using either the Functional or Chronological Résumé format from our textbook, craft your résumé.
Then, write a letter of application using the format in our textbook.
Once you have completed these documents, combine them into a single document with your letter first and your résumé second, and submit this single document to the week four drop box.
