For this assignment, write a cover letter and résumé for a position advertised on Career360° or another online job board. Choose a job you are qualified for and that can accommodate your university schedule.

Follow the format discussed in class for your cover letter and use whichever résumé format—chronological or functional—best presents your relevant qualifications. In class, you will learn about which format works better in different circumstances, and you will need to apply that instruction when making your choice.

Assignment Checklist:

-Use only truthful information about yourself. Presenting false information on a résumé is unethical.

-Use your own words. Do not copy material from the textbook, class slides, another student’s work, or internet sources. Do not use a template or wizard for either document.

-Consult the cover letter and résumé checklists distributed in class (and posted on Brightspace) to ensure all assignment criteria has been met.

-Merge your cover letter, résumé, and job advertisement (in this order) into one electronic file. Save your document as a Word file.
